Senator Rogers Taunts Merrick Garland Threat to Scrutinize Audits: ‘You Will Not Touch Arizona Ballots or Machines Unless You Want to Spend Time in an Arizona Prison’

In a shocking video, Attorney General Merrick Garland announced that the Justice Department will look with scrutiny into any post-election audits concerning evidence of voting law violations. This has many worried over what federal interference in state-led audits could lead the presence of states’ rights to in the future.

State Senator Wendy Rodgers (R-AZ) immediately fired back at Garland and the Justice Department on Twitter. Rogers said, “You will not touch Arizona ballots or machines unless you want to spend time in an Arizona prison. Maybe you should focus on stopping terrorism. The Justice Department is one of the most corrupt institutions in the USA.” Arizona has been undergoing an audit of the general election results in Maricopa County and should be done counting by the end of this week while the Senate Republicans’ election review will not conclude until late July or October.

We reported earlier on Garland’s relationship with Republicans and Democrats:

U.S. House Rep Adam Schiff (D-CA) wanted to “clean house” at the Department of Justice, putting Attorney General Merrick Garland on the hot seat. Not long after, Garland gave a speech where he was critical of new election reform laws that were put into place in states led by Republicans.

Criticizing some post-election audits, Garland said they have relied on “assertions of material vote fraud in the 2020 election that have been refuted by law enforcement and intelligence agencies.” Garland also announced the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division will double the number of enforcement staff who are supposedly dedicated to protecting the right to vote in the next 30 days.

In his speech, Garland claimed that the DOJ will “do everything in its power to prevent election fraud, and if found to vigorously prosecute” but will also scrutinize “new laws that seek to curb voter access.”Garland urged Congress “to pass S-1 and the John Lewis Voting Rights Act, which would provide the department with the tools it needs.”

If Garland truly takes steps towards having the DOJ oversee Arizona’s audit, Senator Rogers will be sure to come after him immediately in a fight to protect election integrity in America.
