“The Voter Fraud in the 2020 Presidential Election was monumental, and the facts are coming out daily!”
Donald Trump is calling out the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors for their refusal to give up the routers that were used in the voting machines in the November elections.
DML News reports,
Last week, during a state senate hearing, officials responsible for the forensic audit in Maricopa County shared details of several irregularities they allegedly found during the audit process and said the system was breached in November.
CyFIR founder Ben Cotton, a digital forensics expert with 25+ years U.S. govt and private sector experience, testified that it is critical that they obtain the routers in order to complete the audit.
Donald J. Trump Issued a scathing message Monday, asking, “Why won’t the RINO Maricopa County Board of Supervisors in Arizona give [sic] the routers?”

For months Maricopa County has refused to hand over the county-owned routers subpoenaed by the Arizona state Senate with the excuse that the routers contain sensitive information. They argue surrendering them could pose a security risk if certain data contained on them is leaked. This, in spite of the fact that a judge ruled the subpoena valid earlier this year, effectively ordering the county to comply.
Maricopa County responded to the demand for the routers on Twitter:
There are no routers connected to the system and there never have been. See attached network diagram of the Election Management System (County’s Tabulation System). pic.twitter.com/zvaaelsbeM

At the state Senate hearing on Thursday, one of the lead investigators of the Maricopa audit dismissed those claims and stressed what he said was the pressing importance of obtaining the routers.
Obtaining the routers is “critically important,” Ben Cotton, the founder of the cybersecurity group Cyfir, told Arizona state officials.
Cotton said the routers will help clarify the specific vulnerabilities he claimed are present in the county’s digital election systems.
“The last time that the antivirus [software] was updated on these systems,” Cotton claimed during his testimony, was in August 2019.
“There have been no operating system updates or patches since that same date,” he also said.
Hackers, he claimed, would have “no difficulty at all” gaining “system-level access” to registration systems at the “current patch state and antivirus state of these systems.”
Cotton dismissed the security concerns advanced by the county over the last few months, saying a forensic review of the systems would produce no “people-sensitive data” from county files.
The county has claimed that its routers are shared jointly by multiple sensitive departments including law enforcement and local branches of federal agencies, and that surrendering the machines to auditors would constitute an undue risk for that data.
#ICYMI: CyFir CEO Ben Cotton says "an element of the election system was breached" during the course of the election. He notes a lack of system patches could allow a script kiddie to gain access w/in 10 minutes & questions the justification given to withhold the routers #AZAudit pic.twitter.com/UGkpGpwOog
