(Jul. 15, 2021) — A few minutes after 1:00 PM/10:00 AM Arizona time on Thursday, The Post & Email attempted to access the live video stream of a hearing convened by members of the Arizona state senate on the progress of the Maricopa County forensic election audit.

Clicking the links in an article written approximately two hours earlier which led to a live video portal now results in a “hosting timeout” message after minutes of waiting.

The same response occurred when we attempted to access the hearing by landing directly on the Arizona legislature’s main website and clicking on the navigational tab, “Live Proceedings.”

While the Arizona legislature’s website is accessible, the “Schedule” navigational tab yields no response for this writer as of 1:37 p.m. EDT.  After minutes of waiting, a graphic appeared along with a link referencing “today”:

 

We were unable to locate live streaming of the hearing at OANN, whose reporter, Christina Bobb, had earlier tweeted would carry it, nor was it on the network’s posted television schedule.

At 12:50 p.m. EDT, Bobb again tweeted that the channel would carry the hearing but provided no link to access the video.

At 1:42 p.m. EDT, a reader of The Post & Email residing in the Western part of the country confirmed that he, too, was unable to “access Arizona Legislature website on any Internet browser platforms.”

Update:

At 1:49 p.m. EDT, The Post & Email noted that the Twitter account “Audit War Room” retweeted an observation from “Maricopa Arizona Audit” stating that “due to the overwhelming number of folks trying to view the Senate’s livestream, you may be unable to connect. Please know that One America News, Real America’s Voice, and Victory Channel will also be livestreaming the hearing.”

  1. Dear Sharon: When I tired the same links (at 12:55AM EST) as you did I got the same results.

    I then Googled “Arizona Senate Hearing on Election Audit” and clicked this link on the list that came up: https://www.azsenaterepublicans.com/post/senate-hearing-on-election-audit-in-maricopa-county

    The link above (Arizona Republican Senate Caucus) had this link in the “Comments” posted by Denny DT: https://player.invintus.com?clientID=6361162879&eventID=2021071008

    The link above opened a live stream of the hearing. I watched the entire hearing LIVE and the hearing Chairperson, Senate President Karen Fann, said it is being recorded for posterity but didn’t say when the recording would be available.

    The hearing’s intent was not to announce specific findings of election fraud but, rather, to determine what the forensic audit had accomplished to date, how it had been accomplished, and what, if anything, the audit team needed to finish their audit and submit their report to the Senate. However, here are a few things the forensic audit team testified to:

    1) The main election system server and devices on its network were in fact accessible via the internet — this refutes statements to the contrary.
    2) The last time the above server’s OS, Anti-Virus, Malware and Cyber Security applications were up-dated were when they were installed — in 2019.
    3) The system’s routers had not yet been turned over to the forensic audit team.
    4) No Arizona official had access to the coding of the Dominion voting machines.
    5) The “Print On Demand” ballot printers and blank ballot paper used at polling places resulted in ballots misaligned front-to-back and front-to-back/back-to-front bleed-throughs.
