The ongoing audit of ballots cast in Maricopa County, Arizona has uncovered “significant discrepancies” in the number of ballots versus the supposed number of ballots that were supposed to exist. Political strategist Boris Epshteyn adds that the discrepancies may be as high as 17.5%, and it is “likely Joe Biden did not win Arizona”.
Arizona Senate President recently sent a letter to the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors, outlining the major issues discovered already in the audit, and offering to settle them without additional subpoenas or compulsory action. In the letter, says Epshteyn on Steve Bannon’s podcast, it reveals, “Pallet five, batch 2976, 200 pink slip total, actual total 165. They are missing 35 ballots out of that batch.” He added, “35 out of 100 is 17.5%. 10 out of 200 is 5%.”
“Do you know how shocking that is? 17.5% discrepancy in a batch is beyond belief.” He added, “In one they’ve got 18 more than there’s supposed to be, which is a 9% discrepancy. Again, if we are to have any confidence in elections in this country, how can we possibly be okay with discrepancies of double digit percentages? It’s absolutely mind boggling, anything above a tiny fraction of a percentage is unacceptable, by the way, unacceptable according to the Federal Elections Commission.”
Ephsteyn explained that several databases subpoenaed for the purpose of the audit have been removed, including files that contain the election results and how they were tallied. “There’s evidence these databases were removed as recently as March, right before handed over, and while being subject to a subpoena. That’s criminal activity.”
“We now know why the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors have been fighting this subpoena so hard, why Perkins Coie has come in, why the Democrats are pushing back, why you’ve got mainstream media melting down,” he explained, “Because they’re hiding this. They’re hiding the disaster in which they handled this election, and likely, the fact that Joe Biden did not win in Arizona.” (READ MORE: Mark Kelly Hires Perkins Coie To Sue National File, Here’s How You Can Help)
The official Maricopa Arizona Audit Twitter account, controlled by Arizona Former Secretary of State Ken Bennett, confirmed the discrepancy and its significance. “Breaking Update: As we open boxes of ballots delivered by Maricopa County, we are discovering significant discrepancies between the number of ballots therein and the batch reports included in the boxes.”

Democrats have repeatedly attempted to interfere with the audit process using the media, the courts, and public statements from Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbes, a Democrat. As National File reported, “Secretary of State Katie Hobbs, whose team is now monitoring the audit, has shown blatant bias, tweeting out the hashtag #fraudit. The Maricopa Arizona Audit official Twitter account told Hobbs to stop ‘attempting to disrupt the audit process.’”
