Arizona Senate Issues New Subpoenas for Maricopa County’s Routers

'They threaten us...that if we do not turn those over by Aug. 2...then we could be held in contempt...'

The Arizona state Senate issued new subpoenas this week seeking access to the routers Maricopa County used during the 2020 presidential election.

The Republican-led chamber has conducted an independent audit of the county’s election, but state Senate President Karen Fann made it clear last week that the investigators would need additional information before the audit could conclude.

Bill Gates, a Republican member of the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors, confirmed during an interview with CNN on Monday that county officials had received Fann’s latest request.

“Right before I came on here, the board of supervisors received another subpoena from the state Senate ordering us to turn over the routers, in addition to some other information. And they threaten us in these papers that if we do not turn those over by Aug. 2 — so that’s next Monday — then we could be held in contempt,” he said.

The subpoena demands that Maricopa County hand over its routers, or “virtual images of the same,” as well as the public IP of each router.

Members of the audit team testified before the Arizona Senate earlier this month and said it is “critically important” that they obtain the routers owned by the county in order to clarify specific vulnerabilities found in Maricopa’s digital election system.

“If we don’t get them, it will be an incomplete report, it will be an incomplete audit, and that’s what the findings will reflect,” said Doug Logan, CEO of Cyber Ninjas, the cybersecurity firm conducting the audit.
