BREAKING: Congressional Committee Investigating Arizona Recount/Audit Skips State Senate, Tracks Ninjas Instead (READ Letter)
A U.S. House committee is jumping into investigating the Arizona State Senate's recount/audit, and they've decided to go where the apparent control is. Rather than writing State Senate President Karen Fann, the House Oversight Committee has focused on Cyber Ninjas' owner Doug Logan.
Sending a 13-page letter (below), the committee is asking for documents and communications relating to funding sources and the "audit procedures" that they have been using.
A key line of the letter, signed by Reps. Carolyn Maloney and Jaimie Raskin - heads of the overall committee and the Subcommittee on Civil Rights and Civil Liberties, respectively - noted:
"The Committee is seeking to determine whether the privately funded audit conducted by your company in Arizona protects the right to vote or is instead an effort to promote baseless conspiracy theories, undermine confidence in America’s elections, and reverse the result of a free and fair election for partisan gain.”
The final of the nine requests is for all communications the Cyber Ninjas had with former President Donald Trump and many of his advisers, attorneys, etc.:
a. former President Donald Trump;
b. any Trump Administration official;
c. any formal or informal representative of President Trump’s presidential
campaign, legal team, or political action committee;
d. any representative of Voices and Votes, Fight Back, America Project, or
any other funder of the Maricopa County audit;
e. Rudy Giuliani or any of his agents or representatives;
f. Sidney Powell;
g. L. Lin Wood;
h. Patrick Byrne;
i. Michael Flynn; or j. Michael Lindell.
The letter, which resembles a subpoena, asks for responses within two weeks (July 28).
Senate President Fann is awaiting a decision from Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Mike Kemp as to whether she has to release records of communications about the audit that might be in the hands of the Cyber Ninjas and subcontractors.
