As we reported yesterday, Attorney General Merrick Garland announced how the DOJ will be involved in post-election audits over voting law violations.

This announcement led State Senator Wendy Rogers (R-AZ) and Bernard Kerik, Former Police Commissioner of the NYPD to grow frustrated and come out against Garland on Twitter.

“[Following the Garland announcement,] State Senator Wendy Rodgers (R-AZ) immediately fired back at [him] and the Justice Department on Twitter. Rogers said, “You will not touch Arizona ballots or machines unless you want to spend time in an Arizona prison. Maybe you should focus on stopping terrorism. The Justice Department is one of the most corrupt institutions in the USA.” Arizona has been undergoing an audit of the general election results in Maricopa County and should be done counting by the end of this week while the Senate Republicanselection review will not conclude until late July or October.

Kerik, NYPD’s 40th Police Commissioner, alleged that the DOJ and Garland should have worked harder during the election to prevent fraud, as opposed to just now getting involved. We reported earlier on Garland’s relationship with Republicans and Democrats:

U.S. House Rep Adam Schiff (D-CA) wanted to “clean house” at the Department of Justice, putting Attorney General Merrick Garland on the hot seat. Not long after, Garland gave a speech where he was critical of new election reform laws that were put into place in states led by Republicans

Criticizing some post-election audits, Garland said they have relied on “assertions of material vote fraud in the 2020 election that have been refuted by law enforcement and intelligence agencies.” Garland also announced the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division will double the number of enforcement staff who are supposedly dedicated to protecting the right to vote in the next 30 days.

In his speech, Garland claimed that the DOJ will “do everything in its power to prevent election fraud, and if found to vigorously prosecute” but will also scrutinize “new laws that seek to curb voter access.”Garland urged Congress “to pass S-1 and the John Lewis Voting Rights Act, which would provide the department with the tools it needs.”

Kerik believes that if the DOJ and Garland “had…done their job and initiated an investigation into the November 3 election, Georgia, Arizona, and Michigan for starters would have seen Trump victories.”

Following up to this take, Kerik continued, labeling Garland’s words as nothing more than “threats and intimidation.”
