NEW YORK (Dagbladet): It certainly wasn’t the outcome that Republicans and Trump himself had hoped for. Since he suffered a crushing election defeat in November last year, Trump has claimed without any documents that the election was stolen from him.
The report by Cyber Ninjas is another sensation for Trump and other conspiracy theorists who continue to claim that there is widespread election fraud in the United States in the 2020 election. It again concludes that Biden won the state by a clear margin.
Cyber Ninjas have been investigating election results in the populous state of Maricopa in Arizona for months in one of the most comprehensive attempts to substantiate Trump’s unsubstantiated allegations of widespread electoral fraud. On Friday, they presented the report showing that a manual recount of votes gives Biden another 99 votes and 261 votes for Trump below the official numbers.
So these are the numbers that come from the Republicans themselves.
Cyber Ninjas President Doug Logan acknowledges that the difference between the census and the official census is “small,” writes Watchman.
According to the newspaper, he has previously published conspiracy theories about election fraud, and still claims that there are inconsistencies in the count. This claim was promptly refuted by Maricopa election officials, who verified his bid.
– a job
Jack Sellers, president of Maricopa County Council, says: USA Today The result in the report from shows that the original count on election night was working as it should.
– The sorting devices sorted the ballot papers in the manner for which they were designed, and the result reflected the desire of the voters. This should be the end of the story. Everything else is just noise, Sellers tells the newspaper.
Biden beat Trump by 45,000 votes in Maricopa and received an additional 10,000 votes when all the votes were counted in Arizona. It gave him 11 state electoral votes. Biden is also the presidential candidate in American history with the most votes nationwide with more than 81 million votes, according to CBS News.
Trump has always claimed that the elections were stolen from him despite the fact that this has been refuted many times.
Arizona Republicans have used Trump’s allegations to demand an independent review of election results in Maricopa, where Phoenix is located. Thus, they hired the Cyber Ninjas, which had no experience auditing election results beforehand.
Support from Trump’s allies
Although the company was hired by state Republicans, the project was funded with $5.7 million (about 49 million kronor) by people outside the state, including prominent businessman and conspiracy theorist Patrick Byrne with $3.2 million. The project also received $1 million from a charitable foundation founded by Michael Flynn, Trump’s former national security adviser.
Republicans are also working on similar reviews in Wisconsin and Pennsylvania, among others. On Thursday, Trump himself came out and demanded that Texas – the state he won by a good margin – conduct a review in the four largest counties. Three of those went to Biden in last year’s election.
Trump himself continues to claim that they discovered widespread electoral fraud even though this is not the case.
– The review revealed important and undeniable evidence of a scam! Until we know how and why this happened, our elections will never be safe,” the former president said in a statement The New York Times.
