Former President Donald Trump condemned the adulteration that auditors have found so far in the ballots of the 2020 presidential election in Maricopa County, Arizona.

In particular, he refers to the letter that state Senate President Karen Fann sent to Maricopa County Oversight Committee Chairman Jack Sellers, demanding that he respond to the irregularities on May 12. 

“Senate President Fann has invited Maricopa County officials to a public hearing on May 18 to allow them the opportunity to try to explain what happened to the missing database, ballots, and other significant issues,” Trump’s statement reads. 

It adds, “The Fake News and Lamestream Media is doing everything they can not to cover this major story. They just refuse to talk or report about it. They don’t want the United States or World to see what is going on with our corrupt, third world election.”

For her part, Republican Party adviser Natalie Harp attached to one of her tweets the statement issued by the office of former President Donald Trump.

Fann wrote to Sellers in part of her letter, “We have recently discovered that the entire “Database” directory from the D drive of the machine ‘EMSPrimary’ has been deleted.”

And after giving more details about the missing items, she asks, “Can you please advise as to why these folders were deleted, and whether there are any backups that may contain the deleted folders?,” after pointing out several other irregularities.

She also requests that the passwords to the ballot tabulators be provided so that the complete information can be known since county officials refused to do so. Most surprising was discovering that those passwords were never provided by Dominion Voting System, the administrator of the machines used to count the votes, evidencing that the elections were always under the control of a private company and not the state. 

In this sense, Dominion indicated that they would not reveal the passwords nor allow any auditor to review their machines, arguing that the passwords are their intellectual property. 

However, they would do so if the auditors, the company Cyber Ninjas, obtain approval from the U.S. Election Assistance Commission.

In this context, Twitter user @FanaTeresafana raises a question that would seriously compromise Dominion. 

“If Dominion had access to the machines, and Maricopa County did not, then WHO DELETED THE DATABASES?”.

Likewise, Dr. Kelli Ward, chairwoman of the Arizona Republican Party, also weighed in on this adulteration. 

“If these allegations are true, and it is proven that the Board of Supervisors deleted election data, one doesn’t have to be a lawyer to think that they’ve crossed the line into illegal territory.”

On the other hand, political strategist Boris Epshteyn adds that the discrepancies may be as high as 17.5 percent when counting ballots and comparing the results to the recorded data. It is “likely that Joe Biden did not win in Arizona.”

He added: “There is evidence that these databases were deleted as recently as March, just before they were turned in, and while they were subject to subpoena. That is criminal activity.”
