Arizona Senate President Karen Fann sent a letter to the Arizona attorney general on Friday, calling for Mark Brnovich to open a criminal probe over “several items in the reports that merit your attention of your office” regarding the Maricopa County Election Audit.
Senator Fann listed in the letter the “most urgent issues” to date which were found during the extensive forensic audit.

One compelling discovery found during the Maricopa County forensic audit was Ben Cotton of CyFir– revealed during the Senate hearing — that election results were purged from the EMS the day before the audit began:
"The EMS [Election Management System] server, at least on that date, was connected to the internet."
And what date was that?

Moreover, a device was connected to the internet which requires an explanation, according to Cotton.
