From Conservative Brief:

There’s another twist in the Maricopa County, Arizona, election audit.

Earlier this week, the National File published a report alleging there was a significant ballot shortage discovered in Maricopa County.

“We found a ballot shortage, anywhere from 5 to 10 percent of the votes. It looks like a couple hundred thousand ballots are unaccounted for. The ballots are missing,” Josh Barnett, a candidate for Arizona’s 6th Congressional District is quoted as saying.

The report describes Barnett as an audit organizer.

“I also know that there were boxes filled with blank ballots in those pallets. There were blanks in there,” Barnett said, citing a person who is frequently at the audit site as part of the audit process. “They (election officials) were doing it for appearance, to try to hide the fact that ballots are missing by saying, ‘It’s okay, they’re all right here.’ But the ballots are blank.”

Ken Bennett, the former Arizona Republican secretary of state and Arizona Senate liaison, has disputed that report and says that is not the case. Advertisement

“There’s been no such finding yet,” he told The Epoch Times.

Randy Pullen, former chairman of the Arizona Republican Party, also disputed the report, calling the missing ballots claim “crazy.”

Donald Trump has released a scathing statement hitting back at the Department of Justice over the Arizona audit.

Late last week, Attorney General Merrick Garland issued a threatening statement about the Maricopa County, Arizona audit.

Trump responded with a scathing statement to Garland and Biden’s DOJ:

The Department of Justice (DOJ) is adding more people onto its roles in order to fight against efforts to limit voting and, I assume, other illegal voting acts. Based on that it would seem the DOJ has no choice but to look at the massive voter fraud which took place in certain Swing States, and I assume elsewhere, during the 2020 Presidential Election Scam,” he said.

“Whether it be voting machines, underaged people, dead people, illegal aliens, ballot drops, ballot cheating, absentee ballots, post office delivery (or lack thereof!), lock boxes, people being paid to vote, or other things, the 2020 Presidential Election is, in my mind, the Crime of the Century. Just look at what has happened to our Country, our Borders, our Economy, Inflation, and more in the last five months, and it will only get worse. If there is going to be honor and greatness for America, the voting irregularities and fraud of that election must be brought to light, immediately.

“Otherwise, we have no Country, certainly not a great one! This should not be an attempt by the Biden Administration to suppress the accountability of a dishonest election. That cannot be allowed to happen, nor can the events of the Presidential Election. They want to cancel anything having to do with the result of that election because they know what was done,” Trump said.

During a speech on voting rights in Washington, D.C., Garland said the Civil Rights Division of the Department of Justice would need more attorneys to handle the audits and with new election security laws passed by Republican legislatures and governors.

Arizona State Senator Wendy Rogers warned Garland that he better stay away from Arizona or he could find himself in prison.

You will not touch Arizona ballots or machines unless you want to spend time in an Arizona prison. Maybe you should focus on stopping terrorism. The Justice Department is one of the most corrupt institutions in the USA.https://t.co/Jl2pKNpfJR

The free state of Arizona will not tolerate this federal meddling. https://t.co/1O7ieEEnVR

The speech by Garland came after representatives from several states toured Arizona’s audit.

Many have been arguing for months that the election audit in Maricopa County, Arizona, could pave the way for many other states to follow.

One America News Network’s Christina Bobb announced on Twitter that representatives from Georgia, Alaska, and Colorado toured the Veterans Memorial Coliseum to analyze the Arizona audit process.
