Biden DOJ Trying To Stop Election Audits

What is he afraid of finding?

The Biden Department of Justice (DOJ) is intervening in the election auditing efforts by Republicans in Maricopa County, Arizona, sending a letter Wednesday to the president of the Arizona state Senate suggesting the recount is illegal.

The Washington Post reported Thursday that the DOJ letter raises “the possibility of a clash between state and federal authorities over the audit.”

Penned by Pamela S. Karlan, who heads the DOJ’s civil rights division, the letter suggests “that the recount of nearly 2.1 million ballots in Maricopa County by a private contractor may not comply with federal law, which requires that ballots be securely maintained for 22 months following a federal election,” the Post noted.

“We have a concern that Maricopa County election records, which are required by federal law to be retained and preserved, are no longer under the ultimate control of elections officials, are not being adequately safeguarded by contractors, and are at risk of damage or loss,” wrote Karlan.

Back in February, Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Timothy Thomason disagreed with Karlan’s current analysis. The Daily Wire reported:

Senate Republicans and the GOP-dominated Maricopa County Board of Supervisors disagreed about the accessibility of the ballots; the Senate wanted to perform an audit to address election integrity concerns from constituents, whereas the board argued the ballots, by law, were to be kept secret for 24 months following the election. The judge scolded the parties for failing to come to an agreement on their own but sided with the Senate, suggesting the law in question does not conflict with the subpoenas.

“There is no question that the Senators have the power to issue legislative subpoenas,” Judge Thomason wrote at the time, according to The Associated Press. “The Subpoenas comply with the statutory requirements for legislative subpoenas. The Senate also has broad constitutional power to oversee elections.”

“The Arizona legislature clearly has the power to investigate and examine election reform matters,” the ruling said. “The Subpoenas also do not violate separation of powers principles. Production of the subpoenaed materials would not violate confidentiality laws.”

Karlan also questioned the role of Florida-based Cyber Ninjas, the private contractor tapped to lead the audit, arguing that the company potentially speaking to voters about their vote “could violate federal laws prohibiting voter intimidation,” the Post said.

Former Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett, the audit’s spokesman, reportedly plans to argue that the ballots at the Arizona Veterans Memorial Coliseum in Phoenix “are being guarded 24 hours a day and are not in any danger,” the report added. Moreover, Bennett contends “Cyber Ninjas has not yet begun interviewing voters but said the company has pledged to do nothing that would constitute intimidation.”

“This is a matter between the Arizona Senate and Maricopa County,” he emphasized. “We don’t see any grounds for anyone else to intervene.”

Democratic Secretary of State Katie Hobbs, who sparked the letter from the DOJ, said the AZ audit is a GOP attempt at creating the “playbook” to use “across the country.”

She told the Post that she thinks the Biden DOJ “is at a place where they don’t think they legally can send in observers. But they’re certainly paying attention to what’s going on.”

On Wednesday, the official account for the audit posted to Twitter, “Democrat [Katie Hobbs] who does not support election audits or transparency now wants the Federal Government to get involved in the Arizona Senate forensic audit. Arizona has the authority to conduct this audit without interference from the Feds!”

  1. Of course they want election audits stopped… because they know that cheating. lying biden did NOT win the election. President Trump won by a landslide and the world knows it!

  2. Of course the demonrats, including biden want to stop the audits because they know they cheated, including biden! President Trump won by a landslide and the world knows it!

  3. If the election was lagitimate, and there was no cheating. Why are Democrat’s so afraid of these audits? And don’t tell me because they are a waste of time. So we’re the four years the Democrats wasted when President Trump was in office. Liz Ceney seems concerned too, but wasn’t concerned either when the Democrat’s were wasting time.

  4. Remember when the DOJ used to be all about “justice” on a non partisan basis!? Not if you’re under forty, you dont!!

  5. Larry, even when dumb people do wise up , they are too coward to do anything about it ,be it GOP or civilians because of blind patriotism to their corruption and that false mindsets that any government is too big to fight or fail when it is NOT, that is until a massive Unity between both civilians and military stops it and drain the whole swamp from the very top to the very bottom , all those in office and out of office who were in previously ! Everyone know now how politicians really care about them after all no one is immune to any enemy from within called DOMESTIC tyranny be it civilians . military and Their families! We The people’s Unity with military to escort and jail all those [ politicians ] guilty of any treasonous act is the only way to solve America’s problems with no more liberal lowering of standards to pacify all that hurts all will also help a lot! Americans are tired of corrupt politicians using Americans and military dying in useless wars for politicians profits1 The anti-American democrats, Rhinos and their tools for hate and division of America is to push certain anti-American agendas , they want to manipulate and control the masses but they must be dumbed down ,and fight each other and eventually take away American rights like gun control for a start. Anti-American democrats, Rhinos and their tools the medias are used to try and cause civil unrest and to promote racism all for ratings and profits in the mean time!

  6. The cheating, lying, worthless democrats are afraid that if the audit continues, there will be proof that sleepy, scummy joe biden did NOT win the election, something the rest of us knew from the beginning! In fact we knew before the election that democrats were going to cheat which is why they wanted all those mail-in ballots!

  7. Liberal garbage, the two crooked impeachments brought you to the line of civil war, Stop now or you will not like the price.
