, Arizona Senate Majority Whip Sonny Borrelli believes state Attorney General Mark Brnovich will not allow the grass to grow beneath his feet as he deals with the Maricopa County Supervisors over their lack of cooperation in complying with the subpoenas for voting equipment and passwords. The supervisors were advised by Brnovich that they must obey the subpoenas from the Arizona State Senate. They can be arrested and held on contempt charges.
In a Tuesday filing with the state’s attorney general’s office, Borrelli cited multiple state statutes the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors has violated in their attempt to make the steal stick. I was once skeptical about the audits but since Democrats and RINOs are fighting so hard against them, I now believe they do have something to hide. If everything was honest, why not just let the audits prove you were right?
The Senate needs the routers used during the election and the associated passwords in order to complete the audit. Personally, I’d love to see them lock up the Supervisors and the top brass at Dominion Voting, as a warning against them trying the same things in other states. Let them obstruct the audits at their own peril.

“The attorney general did send an amicus brief if you will when the county was challenging us on our subpoena.”
The Supervisors filed a suit in an attempt to quash the subpoenas but the judge in the case, Timothy Thomason, ruled that the Senate has broad powers in subpoenaing information and equipment used in the last election. There is really no need to delay. Brnovich needs to arrest the Supervisors and let them appeal from their jail cells. They then need to make sure the equipment is not tampered with and not allow anyone to erase the information the routers contain.
In February, Thomason ruled the Arizona Senate has “broad constitutional power” to subpoena election-related materials, including those items listed in the subpoena.
Borrelli argued his 1487 request now serves the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors’ noncompliance up to Brnovich on a “silver platter.”

Asked how long he thinks it will take for Brnovich’s office to act on the 1487 request, Borrelli responded, “I’m hoping that we’ll see something within the next seven days.”
“You’ve got to give him something for him to act on. Now I’m giving him something for him to act upon and that is, they’re challenging the direct authority of the state Senate,” the lawmaker said.
“This is pretty much handed to him on a silver platter,” Borrelli added. “Normally, this would take a 30-day window, but since he’s already weighed in on our favor with the courts, it’s already done.”
