Republican Arizona state Sen. Wendy Rogers has been outspoken since the start of the 2020 presidential elections audit in her state.

After that, she says Dominion Voting Systems and the Maricopa Board of Elections did not cooperate with the state senate’s subpoena to turn over equipment and data related to the election, she said the results of the audit may be done in two to three weeks.

But Bannon said that he believes the report may be issued this week.

Bannon said on his “War Room” podcast:

OK, I want to make sure when Senator Rogers was here in her segment she said 2 or 3 weeks to see numbers. That’s roughly when I believe they are going to get the first copy of the overall report. My understanding is it could be much quicker. Maybe even this week to get some preliminary numbers. Three times they’ve gone through the full forensic… Remember this is tripartheid.

You’ve got a full forensic audit of the ballots. You then have a recanvasing or canvassing of the ballots, right? This is what the Justice Department is threatening criminal action of the patriots. And then you got the machines. I understand when some people in the audience freak out when I say this. Hey, I’m just not a machine guy.

This comes weeks after state Sen. Rogers called for a new election.

“Don’t be the politician left holding the bag when this fraud is proven nationwide. There is still time to get with the program and do the right thing,” Rogers tweeted.

Rogers has been praised by Donald Trump several times for her efforts, especially given she has been very vocal on Twitter about the audit.

An OH Predictive Insights poll found that 62 percent of Arizona Republicans believe that the election audit in Maricopa County will show that Trump defeated Joe Biden in the battleground state.

It also came on the same day that Sen. Rogers called for people to be arrested for not cooperating with the subpoenas.

In a closed session, Maricopa County’s Board of Supervisors decided not to deliver any more election-related materials or information to the GOP-controlled state Senate.

In a 6-page letter to Kory Langhofer, attorney for Arizona Senate President Karen Fann, county officials said that the election auditors already have some of the information they seek.

The letter added that the auditors hired by Fann may not ever receive any additional information at this time.

Maricopa County attorney Allister Adel claimed in the letter that the subpoena may not be lawful because he claims it was issued while the state Senate was out of session.

In a separate letter to Langhofer, a lawyer representing Dominion Voting Systems said the subpoena the company received was “legally defective.”

Eric Spencer, the lawyer, alleged that the document violated Dominion’s due process rights, its Fourth Amendment rights against unreasonable searches and seizures, and its rights under the Arizona Constitution’s Private Affairs Clause.

“Because the Subpoena is illegal and unenforceable, Dominion hopes that litigation over the Subpoena will not be necessary. Should litigation result, however, Dominion intends to pursue all remedies available to it, including (but not necessarily limited to) recovery of its attorneys’ fees, expenses, and damages” under state law, Spencer said.

In response to Maricopa County and Dominion’s letters, Arizona GOP state Sen. Wendy Rogers is sounding off and calling for major actions.

“I would have arrested all of these people already if I had the power to do so. I vote to arrest. Arrest and put them in solitary,” Rogers tweeted.
