Last week, the team hired by the Arizona state Senators to conduct the forensic audit of the 2.1 million ballots cast in Maricopa County, requested the passwords for the Dominion Voting Systems machines used in the November election.

After refusing to provide this information, the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors finally admitted they did not have the passwords.

In the clip below, Audit Director Ken Bennett tells OAN News that MCBOS conceded they do not have the password required “to get into the administrative functions of the machines, that only Dominion has that which is kind of stunning to us that Maricopa County doesn’t have complete access to those election machines.”

“They’ve also told us that they now can’t, as they promised a couple of weeks ago, provide our subcontractors with the virtual access to the routers and hubs and other things over at the MCTEC Tabulation and Election Center as was part of the subpoena,” he added.

The OAN reporter said, “From what you’re telling me, it sounds like Dominion, a private company, actually has more control over the election than the County Supervisors. Is that accurate?”

“That’s what it sounds like to me, so yes,” Bennett replied.

On Thursday, Dominion flatly refused to provide the password to the machines to the Arizona Senate Republicans. In the following statement, they try to make the case that the audit team has not been accredited by the U.S. Election Assistance Commission.

But, let’s back up a minute here ladies and gentlemen. Because this brief clip just may be the most critical revelation yet.

Why does a voting machine vendor retain sole administrative access to the equipment while the MCBOS is given only user access?

Was this arrangement business as usual for Dominion? Did they retain sole administrative access to all of the machines used by counties throughout the country in November?

Five days ago, The Gateway Pundit reminded us of the November 30 testimony of election observer Jan Bryant before the Arizona State Legislature.

Bryant said that Maricopa County officials were not in charge of operations at the Tabulation Center. Rather, two Dominion employees were in control.

She testified that, “Dominion employees were the only ones who were running any of that equipment. … I was in the Tabulation Center six different days. … No County employees, no IT people, was touching any of the software. They (Dominion) did all the training, they were the adjudicators, they ran all the reports.”

(Relevant portion begins at 6:35:45 in the clip below.)

I will provide a more thorough report later today. There have been many new developments in this story over the last 48 hours.
