MORE MSM Lies.
It’s amazing to me just how far these left wing outlets and ‘fact checkers’ will go.
They lied about the election, they lied about Biden’s dementia, and they are lying about the audit in Arizona as well.
According to reliable sources and videos, that database WAS in fact deleted, and it was later recovered using forensic techniques.
Snopes, CNN, Politifact….they all got it wrong.
Take a look below, and see for yourselves:
Here was the false claim by CNN:
Maricopa County Recorder Stephen Richer, a Republican, and the county's Board of Supervisors -- four of five of whom are Republicans -- responded to the claims with a scathing letter Monday that laid out a series of mistakes auditors had made. Among them: They had not properly reconstructed the RAID storage array used by the county when creating copies of the hard drives, which left them unable to access files that otherwise would have been readily accessible.
Ben Cotton, the founder of CyFIR, one of the companies involved in the Arizona Senate's audit, said in the closed hearing held by Senate Republicans on Tuesday that the county's explanation was right.
"All of this, however, may be a moot point because subsequently I've been able to recover all of the deleted files and I have access to that data," Cotton said.
Cotton did not directly acknowledge that auditors had erred and that characterizing the files as having been deleted was false. But his explanation made clear that the database had never been deleted.
National File had more:
Though Democrat officials have insisted that the Database directory on the primary EMS server has not been deleted, and that claims as such were right-wing conspiracies, CyFIR’s Ben Cotton confirmed during a special hearing on Wednesday that the database had in fact been deleted. The recovery of the database initially spawned false proclamations from left-wing media that the data had never been deleted in the first place.
“Maricopa County did not delete files when preparing the subpoenaed SQL server for delivery,” the Maricopa County Election Board insisted in a lengthy tweet thread accompanied by verbose graphics on Wednesday. However, a statement from Cottton swiftly debunked false information from left-wing media.
“Statement from Ben Cotton of Cyfir: My testimony on May 19th before the AZ Senate is being taken out of context by some media outlets. To confirm: the ‘Databases’ directory on the EMS Primary Server WAS deleted containing the voting databases,” the statement read. “I was able to recover the deleted databases through forensic data recovery processes. We are performing data continuity checks to ensure that the recovered databases are usable.”
