Trump says Maricopa County ‘officials LIED and then tried to cover it up’

by Summer Lane

A new report on the forensic audit of Maricopa County, Ariz. has scored another major win for President Trump and proponents of election integrity.

Cyber Ninjas, the independent firm that spearheaded the 2020 presidential election audit in Arizona, responded to the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors’ repeated claims that the election process in their county was safe and secure:

“Maricopa County continues to purposely mislead Arizonans and the American public about the nature of audit findings, and the impact they had on the 2020 General Election. Their response renames and redefines audit findings so the claim can be made that the findings are false, includes logical sounding arguments that simply don’t add up, and is completely devoid of any supporting evidence.”

President Trump this week also slammed the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors in a statement, calling them “RINOs” who have been spreading “outright lies” about the findings of the forensic audit.

“The board provided zero evidence for their false claims,” Trump fired off, “including no accounting for the 12,772 illegal ballots (more than the election margin alone) who moved outside of Maricopa County before the election.”

“They have no valid answer for how there were more early ballots returned by voters than received, why their official results did not match who voted, why there were more duplicate ballots than originals, or why they deleted and purged their Election Management System data in defiance of a subpoena, which is against the law, and they did on the day before the audit began,” he continued.

According to the detailed review of the 2020 presidential election that was released in late September, Maricopa County’s forensic auditors and canvassers reported 698,239 problematic ballots, including duplicates, ballots with non-verified signatures, and ghost voters.

Additionally, a new independent analysis on Pima County has shown that election irregularities were not limited to Maricopa alone. In Pima County, a limited analysis identified 17,322 duplicate ballots, 9,000 more mail-in voters than ballots, more than 20,000 voters via mail-in voting who have moved to different locations, and 2,383 voters who no longer lived in the same county.

Based on these findings, it appears that election irregularities were widespread throughout the state, and the sheer numbers of problematic ballots vastly outweighs the slim margin of presidential victory in the state for Joe Biden, which was just over 10,000 votes.

“The Presidential Election in Arizona (and in numerous states) was a Fraud,” President Trump said this week. “Maricopa County officials lied, and then tried to cover it up. Now they are facing criminal liability since defying a subpoena and deleting election records are serious crimes. Hopefully, Attorney General Mark Brnovich will do something about it.”

Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich has previously made light of the election audit situation in Arizona, despite having received pressure to investigate allegations and reports of fraud from conservative lawmakers like Arizona state Sen. Wendy Rogers, a Republican, and thousands of concerned Arizonans who fear for the integrity of the election process in their state.

President Trump has previously called for a “new election” to take place in Arizona if the reports of fraud are not resolved and decertified. “Arizona should decertify their Fake Election results immediately!” he demanded in his statement. In light of the flood of data on election irregularities coming out of Arizona every week, it is not an impossibility that decertification could occur.

Decertification of a presidential election is certainly unprecedented, but the disturbing nature and breadth of the reported election fraud in Arizona is staggering. It appears that the possibility of reversing the presidential election or at the very least, holding another election, is plausible.
