Trump's Call for Maricopa County to Turn Over Election Routers Made Into Catchy Rap Video

Path 27

Some creative folks put together a rap video of former President Donald Trump calling out Maricopa County, Arizona, officials for not turning over the routers used in the November general election in defiance of state Senate subpoenas.

The video published Friday samples from Trump’s July 24 speech at the “Rally to Protect Our Elections” hosted by Turning Point Action in Phoenix.

“DJT’s Router Remix Ft. Lil’ KC” by The Remix Bros begins with Trump saying, “If I lost the election, I’m OK with it.” Then, he launches into the refrain, “The county has refused to produce the network routers. We want the routers, Sonny.”

Sonny refers to Republican state Sen. Sonny Borrelli, the Senate majority whip, who has been a strong supporter of the audit of the November election in Maricopa County. The county encompasses the Phoenix metropolitan area.

Other people Trump mentions in the video are state Sen. Wendy Rogers and Arizona Republican Party chairman Kelli Ward, who are also strongly behind the audit.

“Why are these commissioners fighting not to give the routers? How simple could it be? That will tell the truth. What are they trying to hide?” the 45 president later says.

“Knowing what happened in the election is a good thing, not a bad thing,” he adds.

Also making visual appearances throughout is Pastor Kenneth Copeland, whose Victory Channel news and commentary programs, like “Flashpoint,” have been closely following the Maricopa County audit.

Last week, Borrelli filed what’s known as a 1487 request with the Arizona attorney general’s office calling for an investigation into the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors for their refusal to comply with a July 26 subpoena issued by Arizona Senate President Karen Fann and Senate Judiciary Chair Warren Petersen.

Among other items, the Senate subpoena sought access to the routers used during the November general election and the passwords for the Dominion Voting Systems ballot tabulation devices.

Access to the routers and tabulation device passwords were both listed in the original subpoena issued in December and reissued in January, but Maricopa County and Dominion have not complied.

The Arizona attorney general’s office sent a letter Friday to the county announcing it would be investigating the refusal to turn over the subpoenaed items and set an Aug. 20 deadline for a response.

Auditor Ben Cotton, the founder of CyFIR LLC, testified at a July 15 state Senate hearing overseen by Fann and Peterson he needs access to routers and the splunk logs to do his work.

Cotton emphasized to the senators that access to the routers is the most vital thing he needs to complete the audit.

The splunk logs show the activity through the routers and would be a means to determine if anything abnormal happened regarding the vote tabulators and other equipment on or around Election Day.

Maricopa County stated in May it would not be turning over or providing access to the routers out of concern for compromising information related to the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office or other personal data of Maricopa County residents.

Cotton told Fann and Petersen at the time, “That data should not exist on that router, period. So to state that it could be compromised would be an inaccurate statement or an inaccurate portrayal of what the data is on the router.”

He addressed the issue again at the July 15 hearing, explaining that routers are like mail carriers delivering packets of information to addresses, but do not access what is inside.

“What you don’t have is the actual content or the letter that’s contained in the envelope within the router itself,” Cotton said.

Maricopa County communications director Fields Moseley wrote in an email last month to The Patriot Project the Senate auditors do not need access to the routers, citing audits of the Dominion voting equipment the County commissioned earlier this year.

“The County has provided all the items necessary to audit the 2020 General Election,” Moseley added. “If they are trying to prove or disprove that tabulation equipment was connected to the internet, they could review the certified auditors report that show Maricopa County’s tabulation equipment was never connected to the internet.”

President Joe Biden carried Arizona by just 0.3 percentage points, or approximately 10,500 votes, the closest of any of the swing states that went for the Democrat.
