(May 15, 2021) — In a post on Saturday, 45th President of the United States Donald J. Trump commented on the discovery by Arizona State Senate Republicans that the main Maricopa County database from the November 3, 2020 general election is “deleted,” according to a letter State Senate President Karen Fann wrote to the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors on Wednesday.

Trump issued the statement on the “Desk” section of his political website, donaldjtrump.com, which serves as a venue for him to communicate with supporters given that such social-media giants as Twitter, Facebook, and Google/YouTube banned him in January following the “insurrection” at the U.S. Capitol on the sixth.

Fann’s findings stem from a forensic audit commissioned by her Republican colleagues of all 2.1 million ballots cast in the county, Arizona’s largest, which has been challenged from its inception by Democrat groups and law firms claiming it to be in violation of state and federal election laws.

In February, subpoenas issued by the state senate were upheld by a county superior court judge, and, according to Fann, the Board of Supervisors failed to comply.

In her letter, Fann cited three major concerns arising from the Supervisors’ response to the subpoenas and requested their “assistance and cooperation” in providing the missing information and answering her questions.

In addition to the county’s refusal to provide passwords to “vote tabulation devices,” Fann claimed that ballot counts completed during the audit often did not match the number of ballots recorded on each box in which they were stored following the election.

The third major area of concern focused on the missing database, described by Fann as “deleted.” On page 3, she wrote:

We have recently discovered that the entire “Database” directory from the D drive of the machine “EMSPrimary” has been deleted. This removes election related details that appear to have been covered by the subpoena. In addition, the main database for the Election Management System (EMS) Software, “Results Tally and Reporting,” is not located anywhere on the EMSPrimary machine, even though all of the EMS Clients reference that machine as the location of the database. This suggests that the main database for all election related data for the November 2020 General Election has been removed. Can you please advise as to why these folders were deleted, and whether there are any backups that may contain the deleted folders?

In his commentary, Trump depicted Fann and her colleagues as “up in arms” over the missing database:

The entire Database of Maricopa County in Arizona has been DELETED! This is illegal and the Arizona State Senate, who is leading the Forensic Audit, is up in arms. Additionally, seals were broken on the boxes that hold the votes, ballots are missing, and worse…

He opined that Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich “will now be forced to look into this unbelievable Election crime.”

Further, he wrote:

Many Radical Left Democrats and weak Republicans are very worried about the fact that this has been exposed. The DELETION of an entire Database and critical Election files of Maricopa County is unprecedented. Many other States to follow.

As he frequently did throughout his presidency, Trump criticized the media for its silence on the outcome of the election amid claims from what was said to be thousands of registered voters who claimed in sworn affidavits and testimony were widespread election irregularities.

On Thursday during an interview with ousted Republican Conference Chair Liz Cheney (R-WY), revmoed from her role by a vote of House Republicans on Wednesday, Fox News Channel’s Bret Baier declared Trump’s claims of an election victory to be “false,” in essence agreeing in essence with Cheney’s assertion that Trump is promoting “the Big Lie” that he, and not Biden, won on November 3.

Many consumers of news opined that FNC provided biased coverage of the election’s aftermath and precipitately declared Biden to have won Arizona while approximately 600,000 votes remained to be counted in Maricopa County and other locations. On Election Night, Baier himself asked “Decision Desk” consultant Arnon Mishkin to explain his early call for Biden in Arizona.

“The Mainstream Media and Radical Left Democrats want to stay as far away as possible from the Presidential Election Fraud, which should be one of the biggest stories of our time,” Trump continued in Saturday’s commentary. “Fox News is afraid to cover it—there is rarely a mention. Likewise, Newsmax has been virtually silent on this subject because they are intimidated by threats of lawsuits. One America News (OAN), one of the fastest growing networks on television, and the ‘hottest’, is doing a magnificent job of exposing the massive fraud that took place. The story is only getting bigger and at some point it will be impossible for the weak and/or corrupt media not to cover. Thank you to OAN and other brave American Patriots. It is all happening quickly!”

In an earlier comment Saturday, Trump berated the media for its “dishonesty” and what he said was purposefully inaccurate polling prior to the election. “The polls were a joke. I won States in a landslide that I was predicted to lose days before the election,” he asserted. “Other states had me purposely so far down that it would force people, even fans, to say ‘Let’s stay home Darling. We love our President, but he can’t win.’ And then I would win those states or at least come very close…”

He went on to opine that “The 2020 Presidential Election was, by far, the greatest Election Fraud in the history of our Country. The good news is, the American people get it and the truth is rapidly coming out!…”

Trump’s initial early-afternoon comment was shorter than those which followed, stating, “As our Country is being destroyed, both inside and out, the Presidential Election of 2020 will go down as THE CRIME OF THE CENTURY!”

  1. “Auditors hired by the Arizona state Senate backtracked Tuesday from claims that a key database had been deleted from Maricopa County’s elections servers — admitting in a hearing held by the Senate Republicans overseeing the audit that the data is intact and they’d been looking the wrong way.” https://www.cnn.com/2021/05/18/politics/arizona-republican-audit-database-not-deleted/index.html?fbclid=IwAR0MP7YDOv_mZxYbpkNwlDTh4WaZBOyCbuJxcsPf9ruVgj4WkGImMk3JK7g

  2. I’m shocked and disappointed that Newsmax is not covering the Maricopa County, Arizona Election Audit.

    The Left has apparently successfully ‘Birther-ized’ the audit and now Newsmax is afraid to cover the story lest it be labeled with the Left’s scarlet letters arranged to spell out the labels ‘Conspiracy Theorists’ or perhaps ‘Insurrectionists.’

    The Left is good at that: Inflicting fear upon those who disagree with their delusional alternative reality constructs by assigning a deprecatory label that they then mesmerize their followers into believing is a justified pejorative.

    Hillary tried it with the label ‘Deplorables.’ That one back-fired because we on the conservative right embraced it as being the absurd nonsense that it was.

    The label ‘Birther’ worked well for the Liberal-fascists on the Left. Everyone cowered in fear lest they be called a ‘Birther’ despite the irrefutable evidence that Obama manufactured a multi-layered electronic file, published it on the official White House website, and called it an official government issued birth certificate. The Left is good at that. They manufactured a phony so-called Russian Dossier out of thin air and got a lot of mileage out of that.

    Sean Hannity was so terrified of being labeled a Birther that he over and over again for years self-righteously proclaimed that he had “vetted Obama!” Guess Hannity just missed all the evidence when he conducted his vetting of Obama.

    Dinesh D’Souza completely ignored the evidence that Obama was not born in Hawaii when he made his highly profitable documentary on Obama and decided to run with the ‘born in Hawaii’ narrative without documenting any of the legitimate questions surrounding that fantasy lest he be labeled a Birther and face cancellation by the media mob of Fascists on the Left.

    It should come as no surprise when we are informed that the Fascist Left manufactured phony election mail-in ballots. That’s what they do! When they need a false narrative they simply create it!

    And then there’s the Liberal-fascist Progressive-socialist Left’s fallback position when they have no rational argument to raise of pointing an accusatory finger at their opponent and crying out ‘RACIST!’

    That one has worked well for decades for the Fascist Left but it is losing traction as more and more Americans are waking up to the absurd employment of the label over and over again.

    Now the Fascist Left has co-opted that concept, ‘waking up,’ and decided that it will mean something else: That it will mean becoming intellectually illuminated to their delusionally constructed alternative reality or becoming ‘Woke.’

    Don’t fear the Liberal-fascist Progressive-socialist’s labels, Newsmax!

    Didn’t your parents ever tell you that ‘Sticks and stones may hurt your bones but words will never hurt you.’?

    Do your job as America’s Fourth Estate of a Free Press and cover the Maricopa County Election Audit, Newsmax!

    Investigate the facts of the matter. Report the reality of the matter. That’s your job–an all but sacred duty within the context of the American experiment.

    Your parents may also have told you when you were young to ‘Lead, follow, or get the hell out of the way.’ Lead with the truth…, with the facts. Follow the story wherever it leads, or get out of the way so that investigative journalists who are committed to reporting the news to the American public can get that important information to ‘We the People’ that we might be informed about attacks upon our ability to realize our God-endowed rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness such as the attack upon our right to vote in a fair election currently being brought to the light of day by the audit taking place in Maricopa County, Arizona.

    Sincerely, Chris Farrell

  3. Back in 2007, Barry was behind in Indiana election to McCain/ Palin by a sizeable margin at midnight. Lo & Behold, Obama came from behind to win in the middle of night. Our current AG, Todd Rokita, was Sec. of State at the time. He attested that Barry won Indiana even though St Joseph Co. never had enough signatures to legally get Obama canvassed. Our previous Sec. of State, Connie Lawson, just stepped down to retire. I believe there is a connection with Die Bold voting machines and Dominion. As things unravel, let’s see how far it goes back and who was involved with Barry stealing Indiana as it looks like audits are heating up, with good reason. I hope everyone hangs that were involved with Barry’s and Biden’s steal of Our Country
