Attorney General Merrick Garland said he would “scrutinize” audits defending the election integrity of the 2020 presidential vote, drawing a strong warning from Arizona state Sen. Wendy Rogers in a tweet.
“You will not touch Arizona ballots or machines unless you want to spend time in an Arizona prison,” Rogers alerted Garland shortly after Garland made his announcement, according to her June 11 message.
She added: “Maybe you should focus on stopping terrorism. The Justice Department is one of the most corrupt institutions in the USA,” concluding with a denunciation no less expressive of the controversial direction of affairs the DOJ has taken.
Garland generated criticism with his statement that some took as a threat against states that will most likely follow the example of Arizona. An audit considered exemplary by legislators from other states is about to be finalized in Arizona.
Garland said, “We are scrutinizing new laws intended to curb voter access and where we see violations we will not hesitate to act,” according to the same video clip provided by Rogers.
His remarks were issued in a speech in Washington, D.C., on June 11. He also said that the Civil Rights Division will need more lawyers and announced the doubling of DOJ staff for those purposes.
Author Kyle Becker weighed in on the Democrats’ efforts to intervene in Americans’ right to check the authenticity of election results.
“The Department of Justice’s threat is a red flag to states that the federal government is poised to intervene if states conduct election audits,” he commented.
He added, “This should be prompting Republican-led legislatures to begin doing election audits immediately and passing voter integrity laws.”
The multiple irregularities found in the procedures followed during the Nov. 3 vote were denounced at the time by lawyers for then U.S. President Trump. Still, many were dismissed by the courts, while some are ongoing.
But now, several states have followed my initiative led by the state of Arizona, which is about to end, with results that could be resounding, and seem to confirm suspicions that the results presented by the electoral authorities are not the true ones.
Recently in Georgia, a judge ordered 147,000 mail-in ballots counted in Fulton to be opened and reviewed, under suspicion that they might be photocopies and would have illegally favored incumbent President Biden.
“We have what is almost surely major absentee-ballot fraud in Fulton County involving 10,000 to 20,000 probably false ballots,” said Garland Favorito, a poll watcher and one of the lead plaintiffs in the fraudulent ballot case.
“We have confirmed that there are five pallets of plastic-wrapped ballots in a county warehouse,” he added, reiterating his claim.
Since last month, the Biden administration has been trying to intervene in the Arizona audit, and former President Trump himself denounced some of the Democrats’ strategies against the audit.
“Over 100 Democratic lawyers were sent to fight this audit,” Trump said, adding, “The results will be very interesting for the United States and the world to see!” the alternative media Becker News quotes him as saying.
“Why are the Democrats fighting so hard to hide the facts?” added Trump. “I know why, and so does everybody else.”
