UNBELIEVABLE! Biden DOJ Steps in to Warn States Over Performing Election Audits
How in the heck are we supposed to have election audits if everything about them is something that Democrats don’t like and therefore call illegal or intimidating?
This week, the Department of Justice released some “guidance” that is in itself supposed to intimidate states that are performing audits.
According to ABC News,
The guidance, previously previewed last month by Attorney General Merrick Garland in his policy address on voting rights, outlines federal statutes that the department says elections officials must adhere to during such “audits,” such as preserving all federal elections materials and making sure they’re not tampered with.
“This document sets down a marker that says the Justice Department is concerned about this, and we will be following this closely,” a DOJ official told reporters on a media conference call Wednesday.
The guidance echoes a warning sent by the department back in May to the Republican-run audit in Arizona, warning officials there that all election records must be preserved and expressing concern about the state handing over election materials to the private contractor group Cyber Ninjas…
…DOJ officials on Wednesday declined to provide any update on the department’s review of the Arizona “audit.” But the guidance comes as Republicans in several other states have expressed interest or are already moving forward with similarly partisan reviews of the 2020 vote count in certain jurisdictions — despite lacking any evidence of widespread fraud.
One portion of this document that the DOJ put out reads:
“The Civil Rights Act of 1960, now codiﬁed at 52 U.S.C. §§ 20701-20706, governs certain “[f]ederalelection records.” Section 301 of the Act requires state and local election ofﬁcials to “retain andpreserve” all records relating to any “act requisite to voting” for twenty-two months after the conductof “any general, special, or primary election” at which citizens vote for “President, Vice President,presidential elector, Member of the Senate, [or] Member of the House of Representatives,” 52 U.S.C. §20701. The materials covered by Section 301 extend beyond “papers” to include other “records.”Jurisdictions must therefore also retain and preserve records created in digital or electronic form.”
In my opinion, this is just going to harm the Democrats rather than us because this is one of the biggest problems with the election ballots, there are no records for hundreds of thousands of them. Some were deleted right after people voted which is a violation of this law.
So if you ask me, it looks like there is going to be some federal indictments against the Democrats who orchestrated this scam.
What they’re going to try to do is grab a hold of the portion that says federal law prohibits intimidating voters. They’ll say that conducting audits is intimidating. This is just BS though and a veil to try and distract from what’s really going on.
