Time’s up for the Democrats who believed they could get away with stealing a presidential election.
Arizona Senate Republican leaders have issued a subpoena to Maricopa County officials looking for routers and other data as part of the ongoing audit of the 2020 election.
Reports claim that state Senate President Karen Fann and Senate Judiciary Chairman Warren Petersen demanded that the county board of supervisors make the information available for a 1 p.m. hearing on Monday.
And Bill Gates, a Republican member of the board, confirmed the new development in an interview.
“Right before I came on here, the board of supervisors received another subpoena from the state Senate ordering us to turn over the routers, in addition to some other information,” he said. “And they threaten us in these papers that if we do not turn those over by Aug. 2 — so that’s next Monday — then we could be held in contempt.”
County spokesperson Fields Moseley told the Republic that the county “has already provided everything competent auditors would need to confirm the accuracy and security of the 2020 election.”
Former President Donald Trump said last week that Maricopa County’s refusal to allow full transparency amid the 2020 presidential election audit makes him skeptical once again, suggesting that county election officials have something to hide.
“Why won’t the RINO Maricopa County Board of Supervisors in Arizona give the routers?” Trump asked.

The Republican-held Arizona Senate originally subpoenaed the internet routers from the county polling places, but the county rejected the request, claiming it would cost $6 million to replace them.
Maricopa County Attorney Allister Adel has argued that providing the routers “could jeopardize the security of law enforcement data.”
In addition to the routers, the new subpoena demands any information about data breaches to the county’s election system, the Republic said. The subpoena also wants ballot envelopes with voter signatures.
