Maricopa Update: External Drives for Servers Were Removed Nightly to an “Undisclosed Location” for “Safety” During Election


“External devices” with up-to-date totals of the 2020 presidential election were taken off site to an “undisclosed location” every night during the election.


“For safety reasons.”

This is one of the biggest revelations so far to come from the Maricopa county audit.

The external drives were moved by either Maricopa County officials or Dominion employees.

Who moved the devices in unclear.

What is particularly alarming is that there is no transparency.

Even during the audit, the “undisclosed location” remains… well, undisclosed.

We have no idea who and where these drives were taken.

Without knowledge of who took them and where they were taken, how can we ensure election integrity?!

Now, keep in mind that the Maricopa audit is still ongoing.

With all the people involved, there have hardly been any leaks.

This suggests that something BIG will be revealed soon.

This latest update about the external hard drives was not a leak.

It was by the GOP chairwoman herself.

See what Dr. Kelli Ward revealed to the public:

So much for safeguarding the vote…

How can we possibly trust the election results with no transparency?

If the drives were taken off site… by some mysterious figure we don’t know… how do we know that the results weren’t tampered with?

That’s what the audit is trying to get to the bottom of.

The National File has a few more details regarding the mysterious hard drives:

Orange “external devices,” appearing to be portable hard drives, were removed from the vote tabulating area every night during the election by either election officials in Maricopa County, Arizona or Dominion Voting Systems employees, per Arizona Republican Party Chair Kelli Ward.

In a tweet accompanied by an image showing the orange external drives, Ward wrote, “These are the servers for Maricopa Co elections. The external drives that were loaded with nightly early vote totals are circled. Scott Jarrett said they were taken to an offsite ‘undisclosed location’ nightly ‘for safety’ by an employee or a Dominion contractor working for MC.”

According to Scott Jarrett’s LinkedIn profile, first reported by The Gateway Pundit, Jarrett says he previously worked as a Senior Auditor in Maricopa County for over 7 years. Jarrett also says he has certifications to be a Certified Fraud Examiner, Certified Internal Auditor, and Certified Government Auditing Professional, which do not expire.

“Having the CIA, Jarrett would surely see that it was not alright moving any devices like the ones identified in the picture above from an onsite location. Also, the entire fact that these devices were included in an election is also suspect,” reported The Gateway Pundit.

This comes after Maricopa County officials admitted that they do not have access to the passwords used to access administrator features of the voting machines used in November. The officials were asked to provide the passwords to the firm conducting the audit, and ultimately confessed that they do not have access to the passwords, and did not have access during the November election.

“If you think of it like your computer, you know, a lot of people can log in as users, but very few people can log in as administrators. So when the auditors were examining the machines, they were examining it as a user,” explained Christina Bobb on OAN. “And then they reached the point where they needed the administrative password, and when they reached back out to the county, the county was forced to acknowledge that they did not have the password. Which means they didn’t have it for the election. Which means they did not have any control over the machines for the election.”

Again, if Democrats have nothing to hide, then they should want this audit to continue.


Because if Joe Biden actually won fair and square, then this audit will prove it.

However, Democrats and leaders in Maricopa County have been fighting the audit every step of the way.

And this is just the latest revelation to be made public.

We don’t know about you, but it looks pretty damning to us!

Even now, Maricopa appears to be fighting against integrity.

They are refusing to deliver hardware to the auditors.

They are required to do this due to a subpoena.

Yet they are claiming a “security risk” if they hand over the material.

But answer us this: how can there be a risk if the election happened over half a year ago?

Just the News has more details:

Officials in Arizona’s Maricopa County are withholding materials subpoenaed by the state legislature as part of its audit of the county’s 2020 election, claiming that surrendering them would constitute a security risk for both law enforcement and federal agencies.

A Monday letter sent from the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office to Ken Bennett, the former Arizona secretary of state and the liaison between the state Senate and the auditors, said the county had elected not to turn over “several routers” requested by the legislature due to an alleged “significant security risk to law enforcement data utilized by the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office as well as numerous federal agencies.”

“We had previously believed that the risk would be eliminated by redacting the law enforcement data on the routers and not producing it,” the letter states. “But we were informed that redaction did not eliminate the risk.”

Bennett told Just the News that the state Senate’s subpoena had requested “access or control of all routers and tabulators … used in connection with the administration of the 2020 election” as well as “the public IP of the [routers].”

“I don’t know why the routers in a tabulation and election center have anything to do with the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office or numerous federal agencies,” Bennett said, noting that “the sheriff’s department and the Maricopa County tabulation and election center aren’t even in the same building.”

Maricopa County spokesman Fields Moseley on Thursday afternoon said the county had “determined the information contained in Maricopa County’s routers can be used as blueprints to intercept sensitive county data.”

“Maricopa County has more than 50 different county departments, and the routers the Senate subpoena commanded the County produce support all of these departments, not just elections operations,” Moseley said. “This includes critical law enforcement data that, by law, cannot be disclosed, as well as Maricopa County residents’ protected health information and full social security numbers.”

What do you think?

Will the Maricopa audit make Arizona the first state to “fall” and reveal the Big Lie?

Or is it too little, too late?

Or will the big reveal come somewhere else?
