President Trump issued a statement today, and he’s not mincing words.
He wants the routers.
What exactly does that mean?
He’s talking about the Maricopa County routers which election officials are refusing to turn over, by claiming it would be a “security breach.”
USA Today reported on this router story all the way back in May:
Routers serve as the mail carrier of a computer network: They deliver messages using maps of networks and computer addresses.
Think of it like a mail carrier who relies on maps and addresses to get mail to the right place.
Given access to the mail carriers’ — or routers’ — information, it would be easier for a bad actor to get access to a person’s mail, or to target the information inside the network.
That’s an analogy one tech expert – Matt Bernhard, a research engineer at Voting Works, a nonpartisan nonprofit that advocates for open source election technology — gave while explaining the importance of keeping Maricopa County’s routers secure.
Arizona Senate Republicans are trying to get access to the county’s routers and administrative passwords to the county’s voting machines, and to provide that to private contractors they’ve hired to audit the county’s 2020 election results, which began April 23.
Bernhard said providing access to the routers is a “pretty specific risk” to the county. Also, he and other election security consultants across the country are unsure why exactly the auditors would need the routers to audit the election results.
County Attorney Allister Adel has said that giving access to the routers would risk county residents’ Social Security information and public health information, along with sensitive law enforcement data.
Many people think this sounds like an excuse. Look, I’m not a PC nerd, but can’t they find a way to isolate the info they need from the router? There has to be some “secure” way to make that work.
And now that a lot more questions are coming out of Arizona, thanks to the Secretary of State’s concerns, the router appears to be an even more important piece of the puzzle.
This is likely why President Trump is demanding the routers.
Here’s what he said in today’s statement.
“Why won’t the RINO Maricopa Co. Board of Supervisors in AZ give the routers? What are they trying to hide? They are fighting for life or death. What is going on? Give the routers!”
“The Voter Fraud in the 2020 Presidential Election was monumental, and the facts are coming out daily!”

It’s amazing how many roadblocks are being put up to stop Americans from examining the 2020 election.
Bumbling Joe Biden tells us that 2020 was the fairest election in our nation’s history.
Great, Joe…so let’s take a deep dive into the election and see what happened, okay?
Yeah, that’s what we thought…
