Almost six months have passed since President Donald Trump faced defeat, but that isn’t stopping Arizona state senators from investigating the election results in Maricopa County.

Senate leadership subpoenaed the county’s 2.1 million ballots and the voting machines they came from. From there it will all be handled by Cyber Ninja, a Florida-based cybersecurity company. Legislators hired the auditor for $150,000. The audit is expected to scan and recount all ballots, examine the registration of votes cast, and the electronic voting system itself according to a press release.

Trump predicted from the beginning that there would be further investigations into the 2020 election.

“Thank you State Senators and others in Arizona for commencing this full forensic audit,” the former president said. “I predict the results will be startling!”

Cyber Ninja’s owner Doug Logan expressed his mixed feelings about the election results.

“There’s a lot of Americans here, myself included, that are really bothered by the way our country is being ripped apart right now,” Logan said. “We want a transparent audit to be in place so that people can trust the results and can get everyone on the same page.”

Legislators expect to have the results of the audit within 60 days.

DOJ says FBI informant on Biden had ‘high-level’ contacts with Russian intelligence

In a memorandum filed with the U.S. District Court for the District of Nevada to support Alexander Smirnov’s continued pre-trial detention, the Department of Justice(DOJ) wrote that he claimed to have had “contacts with multiple foreign intelligence agencies…[who] could resettle Smirnov outside the United States if he were released.”

Smirnov, a dual citizen of the United States and Israel, was arrested and charged on Feb. 14 with making false statements to the FBI about Biden’s connections to the Ukrainian energy company Burisma Holdings Limited, which employed his son Hunter Biden as a member of the board with a monthly salary of $50,000 during his term as vice president.

“During his custodial interview on February 14, Smirnov admitted that officials associated with Russian intelligence were involved in passing a story about [Hunter Biden],” wrote special counsel David Weiss in the filing. “Smirnov apparently attended a separate meeting with Russian Official 1, [an] individual who controls groups that are engaged in overseas assassination efforts.”

The Daily Caller News Foundation reports that Smirnov was a confidential human source who provided information that was used to prepare a report, known as an FD-1023, about Joe Biden’s alleged connections to the Burisma business partners of Hunter Biden. That report has previously served as evidence contradictingJoe Biden’s claim that he knew nothing of his son’s business dealings; a notion at the center of an impeachment inquiry against him.

The FD-1023 detailing Smirnov’s claims was released by Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa on July 20, 2023, after it was provided to him by government whistleblowers. “[The] indictment confirms several points Senator Grassley has made repeatedly. The informant behind the FD-1023 was, indeed, a long-serving, trusted FBI source used by the agency for criminal investigations since the Obama administration. In fact, he was so trusted that the FBI provided him authorization ‘to engage in illegal activity for investigative purposes’,” a spokesperson for Grassley told the Daily Caller News Foundation.
