Mark Brnovich Sends Letter Opposing DOJ “Posturing” and Interference in Arizona Audit

PHOENIX, ARIZ. – Today, Mark Brnovich, Arizona Attorney General and Candidate for U.S. Senate sent a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland strongly opposing the Department of Justice’s signal that it will interfere in Arizona’s audit of the 2020 election.

The strongly worded letter called out AG Garland for statements that Brnovich says showed “an alarming disdain for state sovereignty” and “appeared more interested in supporting the hysterical outcries of leftist pundits on cable television, rather than the rule of law.”

Brnovich said his office is “not amused by the DOJ’s posturing and will not tolerate any effort to undermine or interfere with our State Senate’s audit.”

He closed with this warning to Garland: “Arizona will not sit back and let the Biden administration abuse its authority, refuse to uphold laws, or attempt to commandeer our state’s sovereignty.”

“Attorney General Brnovich has been clear from the beginning,” said a spokesperson for the Brnovich Campaign. “The Arizona Senate has a constitutional right to conduct an audit of the 2020 election and he will defend that right. Today, he put AG Garland on notice. Arizona will not be manipulated by the intimidation tactics of the DOJ. The Federal government needs to stay in its lane and out of Arizona’s audit.”
