Attorney General Merrick Garland issued some stern remarks regarding 2020 election audits, as the longest-running and only active audit of the much-contested election which prevented former President Donald Trump from securing a second term in the White House nears its close in Arizona. On Friday, Garland delivered a lengthy speech in which he warned that the Department of Justice is gearing up to closely examine any post-audit results, as though those banking on the Arizona audit to overturn the results of the general election needed any more convincing that the establishment does not want said results scrutinized. In a speech to the staff of the DOJ’s Civil Rights Division, the attorney general said the department plans to “scrutinize” any “post-election audits, to ensure they abide by federal statutory requirements to protect election records and avoid the intimidation of voters.” “Some jurisdictions, based on disinformation, have utilized abnormal post-election audit methodologies that may put the integrity of the voting process at risk and undermine public confidence in our democracy,” he added.
