Democrats are certainly not acting like they believe the Arizona vote was free and fair. From Paul Craig Roberts at paulcraigroberts.org:
Arizona Democrats have refused to comply with court orders and have declared an audit “racist.”
The criminal gang that masquerades as the US Dept of Justice has declared the election audit “voter intimidtion” as the DOJ attempts to intimidate Republicans to cease the audit. https://www.theepochtimes.com/mkt_morningbrief/gop-chair-elise-stefanik-justice-department-is-trying-to-block-maricopa-county-audit_3817473.html?utm_source=Morningbrief&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=mb-2021-05-17&mktids=099d101a6305b3625c83b169b1fd089a&est=Wk7f9aOTamkQQYovPsQ7e0K59e9qkxefANnaS30L81tnWqAosaiyIQ%3D%3D
Obviously, there was massive electoral fraud. If not, why the extraordinary effort to block the audit? If there was no election fraud, the Democrats would welcome an audit to prove their case.
What will Republicans, assuming the DOJ doesn’t scare them off, do with the evidence of election theft? Chances are high they will cover it up. Why? Here are several reasons:
Republicans are largely from the business and corporate community. They don’t know how to fight. They learned that you get to the top by not making waves.
Republicans are patriotic and are concerned to protect America’s reputation. Many will argue that to reveal the fraud will undermine America’s reputation and democracy and that the Chinese and Russians will use the fraud for propaganda against America. Suppressing the evidence of fraud is necessary to protect America’s influence.
If there was no fraud in Maricopa County, why are the Democrats working so hard to block the investigation at every step of the way? From Tyler Durden at zerohedge.com:
Update (1400ET): Something must be really worrying Democrats. There appears to be a full court press effort to delay and defer any and every effort to audit Maricopa County’s election results. The Biden justice department added to pressure from Arizona’s chief elections officer (a Democrat) and the Arizona Democratic Party, and now, Daniel Payne at JustTheNews.com reports that officials in Arizona’s Maricopa County are withholding materials subpoenaed by the state legislature as part of its audit of the county’s 2020 election, claiming that surrendering them would constitute a security risk for both law enforcement and federal agencies.
A Monday letter sent from the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office to Ken Bennett, the former Arizona secretary of state and the liaison between the state Senate and the auditors, said the county had elected not to turn over “several routers” requested by the legislature due to an alleged “significant security risk to law enforcement data utilized by the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office as well as numerous federal agencies.”
Given that President Biden is the most popular president ever and we know from the mainstream media that there was no, none, zip, nada, election fraud anywhere in America, why are Democrats so aggressively interfering in the process of auditing the county’s election?
