‘Revealed: Trump secretly donated $1m to discredited Arizona election ‘audit’’

‘Funding for controversial review of state’s vote count in 2020 election can be traced to former president’s Pac’

Save America PAC…
“… Cyber Ninjas, the Florida-based company that led the Arizona audit, disclosed in 2021 that $5.7m of its budget came from several far-right groups invested in the “stop the steal” campaign to overturn Joe Biden’s presidential victory.”

“… It was later divulged that a further $1m had supported the audit from an account controlled by Cleta Mitchell, a Republican election lawyer who advised Trump as he plotted to subvert the 2020 election.”

An intriguing piece of #OSINT was revealed in a tweet by Staci Burk days ago. Its not clear she realizes the possible significance. Days later she would receive another "credible threat" demanding she delete her twitter accnt & stop talking. Out of fear it appears she compiled.
In a recent @Propublica article about the #BigLie (Trump's continued fraudulent claim the 2020 election was stolen), Ms Burk is mentioned & implies she came up with some of the election lies. Burk posted a NEW late Nov. 2020 text 2 refute this & suggest she was used as a conduit
Turns out we grabbed this first screenshot and then moments later it was gone, then followed by another one that now redacted the word "Robyn" at the bottom. We figured she had just missed that redaction and wanted to correct it. But immediately the name "Epps" caught our eye.

On claims of deleted files, databases, logs: In some cases, the items that contractors could not find were items the Senate did not subpoena and therefore wouldn’t have. 1/5
In other cases, the “missing” data was exactly where it was supposed to be, as proven by copies of the EMS server & images that the County cloned prior to providing those materials to the Senate. 2/
In many cases, the events that contractors falsely attributed to a nefarious remote user running “scripts” to purge files were actually standard, automated actions from the EMS application meant to manage space on the server. 3/

Newly-elected Chairman @billgatesaz is outlining his vision for Maricopa County in 2022. Watch live:…. This thread will share highlights.
@billgatesaz Gates says the community has been tested “by a novel virus that has not just threatened our health, but our compassion for one another… an uncertain labor market and rising prices… and the greatest single challenge to our democracy in my lifetime and likely yours."
“Our quality of life depends on the quality of our democracy. The quality of our democracy is directly tied to the strength of our democratic institutions. And right now those institutions, including @maricopacounty government, are at risk because of widespread misinformation.”

Michael Flynn is trending on Twitter this morning after explosive allegations from Everett Stern, a former HSBC Bank whistleblower & GOP candidate for PA Senate. He is accusing Flynn & operatives of trying 2 recruit him 2 find dirt & blackmail area politicians @davetroy Image
Everett Stern, in a press conference in Philadelphia on Saturday claimed a group called the "Patriot Caucus" led by General Flynn was also potentially plotting upcoming malign operations in places like Virginia. Virginia has a critical election for Governor on Tuesday #VAGOV
He later provided this photo via his twitter account @EverettStern1 where he is pictured with Andrew Meehan on the left and an unidentified Flynn supporter on the right. Andrew Meehan ran against and lost to @RepBrianFitz who is currently the Rep. for PA's 1st district. #PAGOP ImageImage

NEW: In the coming weeks, Maricopa County will be producing a comprehensive report addressing all of the allegations and questions from the Arizona Senate's final audit report. We will take the time needed to be thorough & accurate. #AZAudit
On Friday, the County provided real-time responses to many of the allegations made by the Senate’s contractors. This technical report will provide a deeper dive into the County's early ballot and tabulation processes.

It will also include election staff’s research into the actual voter IDs included in the Senate’s review. The County’s technical response will address many of the "anomalies" that stumped the Senate's contractors but appear not to have been fully investigated by their team.

"So here's from the report, and it was a very conservatively done report.

"It's much worse than this. The astounding findings include, ready?"

23,344 mail-in ballots from persons no longer living at that address

17,322 duplicate ballots, which surged AFTER the election

2,382 voters who voted in-person but had moved out of Maricopa Co

2,081 voters moved out of state
5,295 over votes from people voting in more than one county

282 dead voters

At least one batch of 50 ballots “was run through the tabulators twice.”

Official Canvass recorded 3,432 MORE ballots cast than people they recorded as having cast a vote

The #azaudit final report includes party breakdown numbers for all of the matching they did.

#Wahlbetrug #Hochrechnung #AzAudit #btw21
In der höchst informativen Präsentation der Ergebnisse vom #AZAudit gestern, haben wir gelernt, dass die Wahl eine riesige #Shitshow ist. Es wurde seitens der Ämter nicht nur der Zugriff auf zahlreiche verdächtige Aspekte verwehrt (1/5)
#Wahlbetrug #Hochrechnung #AzAudit #btw21
Nein es wurden auch noch Unstimmitkeiten und Sicherheitslücken auf #Skriptkiddie Level aufgedeckt, die eine Einmischung von Außen quasi von Haus aus erlaubten - Es wurden scheinbar Wahlzettel mehrmals eingescannt u. Sensible Log´s..(2/5)
#Wahlbetrug #Hochrechnung #AzAudit #btw21
direkt vor dem beginn des Audits (durch "Anonyme" User!) gelöscht. Updates / Patches grob vernachlässigt. Man denke sich nur, was bei einem deutschem Finanzaudit z.B. los wäre, wenn nur ein Bruchteil davon zuträfe. - (3/5)

A thread of Doug Logan's #azaudit presentation. It will include live tweets and fact checks when I have them.

Let's do this thing.
He starts with a description of the audit's chain of custody as well as ballot handling.
"All counters were Maricopa residents who voted in the last election."

NEW: Here’s round two of our #FactCheck on several of the claims Cyber Ninjas identified as the most serious in their report: 🧵
CLAIM: Election management database purged

BOTTOM LINE: This is misleading. Nothing was purged. Cyber Ninjas don’t understand the business of elections. We can't keep everything on the EMS server because it has storage limits.
We have data archival procedures for our elections and @MaricopaVote archived everything related to the November election on backup drives. So everything still exists.

EXPLANATION: The Election Management System (EMS) database does not store election information forever.

NEW: After a preliminary review of the draft #azaudit report, we can provide a #FactCheck on several of the claims Cyber Ninjas identified as the most serious in their report:
CLAIM: 23,344 mail-in ballots voted from a prior address.

BOTTOM LINE: Cyber Ninjas still don’t understand this is legal under federal election law. To label it a “critical” concern is either intentionally misleading or staggeringly ignorant. AZ senators should know this too.
1) Military and overseas voters can cast a “federal only ballot” despite living outside the U.S. The address tied to their ballot would be their prior address in AZ.

BREAKING: The #azaudit draft report from Cyber Ninjas confirms the county’s canvass of the 2020 General Election was accurate and the candidates certified as the winners did, in fact, win.
Unfortunately, the report is also littered with errors & faulty conclusions about how Maricopa County conducted the 2020 General Election.
Board members & election officials will pay close attention to what is said at Friday's scheduled Senate hearing & share facts as needed.

.@abc15 obtained what is purported to be a draft copy of the #azaudit report from multiple independent sources.

The draft finds that the forensic hand count was not substantially different than the official results.…
@abc15 The draft report alleges multiple inconsistencies in Maricopa county's voter registration were found when the files were bounced off of commercial data warehouses.
It also lists multiple areas in which election logs and data were removed from the EMS server prior to the start of the audit. The county maintains that the equipment was handed off with no changes made.

1/7 - In light of the AZ State Senate and Maricopa County settlement, let's look into John Shadegg and see what he's been up to.

NEW: Board of Supervisors responds to Senate subpoena, continues to take stand against #azaudit
Read the response:…
Statement from Chairman @jacksellers ⬇️…
Key points to AZ Senate:
• Routers: No means no.
• Passwords: Why demand passwords we don’t have for tabulators you’ve already returned?🤔
• Images: Can’t find what we provided in April? Check Ballot Pallet 46 or subfolder AFFIDAVITS on Lacie hard drive. Or the lab in Montana.
We are also concerned about the treatment of the materials already provided.

Outside the Phoenix, AZ rally that Donald Trump will headline, attendees are yelling at us, “No masks.”
We are indeed wearing masks. This will be an hours-long indoor rally as the Delta virus has led to an increase in #COVID19 cases.
Here’s what it looks like inside. The front section is packed— the back and two upper levels are empty so far. I’ve seen 2 masks on attendees.
The rally has officially started, w/@annamajaCNN & me among a very small handful wearing masks in this indoor rally for Trump

More fact checking from today’s Senate briefing on #AZAudit
CLAIM: Maricopa County received 74,000 more mail-in ballots than we sent.

FACTS: In Maricopa County, we allow people to vote early in two ways: 1) by mail and 2) in-person at Vote Centers. These are all considered early votes.
The people who vote in-person use ballots provided at a Vote Center. This is not a new practice, so it's not unusual that we would have more early votes than mail-in ballots sent.

#AzAudit Router information not turned over yet! Previously county agreed within 60 days of election. Then in May said it would compromise & would NOT turn over! CRITICALLY important to substantiate. Validate facts: breach during 2020 election by county, legal, law statements.
Registration info breached,Jan.2021 county acknowledged unauthorized access to server of 11/3/20 election;cybersecurity&network problems-antivirus not updated-NONE of the endpoints in Maricopa system updated since Dominion installed in 2019 #AZAudit registration system vulnerable
#AZAudit County concern to withhold router info not valid per expert Cotton-no sensitive personal data will be turned over to get info the audit NEEDS.MAC and IP addresses needed.Why use same router for election &personal info-REALITY is totally different than Co.public statement

Good morning from Phoenix where AZ Sen Pres Karen Fann is holding a hearing on the latest on the so-called audit. Seated at the front is OAN’s Christina Bobb, who has promoted fundraising for the audit and spread conspiratorial lies #AZAudit
Former President Trump sent out an email blast saying, “Big hearing in Arizona.” We've been told this "hearing" does not include public comment or press questions. The room has quite a few spectators #AZAudit
In addition to OAN, Victory News and Gateway Pundit are present. I also see local news stations here.

#AZAudit It's moving day! Machines are nearly loaded, and the pallets are being shrink wrapped for storage. Phase 1 of the first Forensic Audit in USA History is nearly complete.
#AZAudit They broke down a lot of tables and equipment overnight and were here early this morning. Contrast this to just a few weeks ago:
#AZAudit Machines in storage. Starting on pallets of ballots.
