Arizona Attorney General, Mark Brnovich on Wednesday joined in the battle for a forensic audit of Maricopa County election results. That would include the voting machines and the images of the ballots. Mr. Brnovich filed an amicus brief in support of the Senate subpoenas. A couple of weeks ago the Maricopa County Election voted 4to 1 against honoring the subpoenas.
The goal is to prove that the machines did what they were supposed to do, win the election for Biden, no matter what he’s hidin’.
Arizona Attorney General Brnovich argued four main points in the amicus brief filed today:
(1) The Arizona Legislature has broad constitutional and statutory authority to issue legislative subpoenas
(2) The Court’s review of legislative subpoenas should be deferential
(3) The presiding officer of either house or the chairman of any committee have the power to issue subpoenas to the County related to the County’s election administration
(4) Subpoenas issued to political subdivisions, like the County, do not present separation of powers issues.
Election Wiz is one of the sources just now reporting on this story:
The Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich has filed a brief in support of Arizona legislature in the battle over whether the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors must comply with election-related subpoenas.
Earlier this month, the Maricopa Board of Supervisors voted 4-1 today defy the state lawmakers and resist complying with legislative subpoenas. Instead of allowing an audit, the board voted to file a lawsuit against lawmakers in state court, seeking to block the enforcement of the subpoenas.
The subpoenas were issued by Arizona lawmakers in response to claims that the election in Maricopa County was fraught with fraud. The lawmakers seek force county officials to allow an audit of the voting machines.
In the brief filed with the court, the Arizona AG asked the judge to enforce the subpoenas.
“The County’s position on the general scope of the Legislature’s subpoena power is, therefore, inconsistent with constitutional structure, governmental tradition and practice, the plain meaning of an Arizona statute, and binding Arizona Supreme Court case law” the AG’s brief reads.
