Arizona’s attorney general on Monday appeared to put the Biden Justice Department in check over its criticism of the State Senate’s forensic audit of the Maricopa County 2020 election votes, charging that it was giving into “hysterical outcries of leftist pundits on cable television, rather than the rule of law”.
Attorney General Mark Brnovich sent Attorney General Merrick Garland a letter after Garland, on Friday, claimed the department would scrutinize “post-election audits to ensure they abide by federal statutory requirements to protect election records and avoid the intimidation of voters,” a clear reference to the forensic audit being conducted for Maricopa County, Arizona.
“My office is not amused by the DOJ’s posturing and will not tolerate any effort to undermine or interfere with our State Senate’s audit to reassure Arizonans of the accuracy of our elections,” wrote Attorney General Mark Brnovich in his letter.
“We stand ready to defend federalism and state sovereignty against any partisan attacks or federal overreach,” he warned.
Garland, last week, had claimed of the election audits: “Many of the justifications proffered in support of these post-election audits and restrictions on voting have relied on assertions of material vote fraud in the 2020 election that have been refuted by law enforcement and intelligence agencies”.
“Your comments followed a May 5 letter from Pamela Karlan of the Department of Justice’s Civil Rights Division, on the subject of the Arizona Senate’s oversight of the Maricopa County audit. This letter appeared more interested in supporting the hysterical outcries of leftist pundits on cable television, rather than the rule of law,” wrote Brnovich. Continued Below
“Arizona will not sit back and let the Biden administration abuse its authority, refuse to uphold laws, or attempt to commandeer our state’s sovereignty,” Arizona Attorney General Brnovich informed Garland.
Arizona GOP Chairwoman Dr. Kelli Ward tweeted the letter Monday:

In a statement last month, former President Donald Trump urged Brnovich to “get on the ball” and recognize the “crime of the century”, in regards to the “2020 Presidential Election”.
The lackluster Attorney General of Arizona, Mark Brnovich, has to get on the ball and catch up with the great Republican Patriots in the Arizona State Senate. As massive crime in the 2020 Election is becoming more and more evident and obvious, Brnovich is nowhere to be found.
He is always on television promoting himself, but never mentions the Crime of the Century, that took place during the 2020 Presidential Election, which was Rigged and Stolen.
Arizona was a big part and Brnovich must put himself in gear, or no Arizona Republican will vote for him in the upcoming elections. They will never forget, and neither will the great Patriots of our Nation!
Attorney General Mark Brnovich announced last week he will run in the 2022 Republican primary aiming to challenge incumbent Sen. Mark Kelly (D-AZ).
