The letter sent by the Arizona AG's office and simultaneously released to media is false and smacks of retribution for the AG's own decision to ignore suspicious voting activity. Indeed, True the Vote’s first meeting with the AZ AG’s team was on June 3, 2021. After receiving no feedback, True the Vote followed up by filing a complaint with the State of Arizona on March 28, 2022 and followed up with multiple meetings with state investigators.
To True the Vote's surprise, they later learned that these investigators violated the confidentiality that should have been afforded to informants in an ongoing criminal investigation, by the AG's office releasing to media the identity of private citizens who had provided information. It was clear that the intent of this was to chill the investigation and send a warning to those who had mistakenly believed law enforcement would protect them. True the Vote lawyers sent a letter affirming these facts to the Arizona AG's office on June 14th, 2022, and referring them to federal law enforcement, as True the Vote no longer trusted the state office.
As was stated in their March 2022 complaint, the data used by True the Vote is available to any law enforcement agency which issues a lawful subpoena for the data. Here is a photo of a copy of the hard drive with Gregg Phillips, of OPSEC Group, the group contracted to oversee the geospatial research for True the Vote. This availability is not new… True the Vote has offered it repeatedly in direct conversation with law enforcement agencies. But True the Vote offers it to law enforcement publicly today.
True the Vote has documentary records of correspondence with the State of Arizona and the FBI, detailing the evidence and its limitations. Had the Arizona AG's office been serious in their investigation of True the Vote's information, they would have had no need to send a letter to the FBI and simultaneously transform it into a press release to cover up their own failings. Just as in the Konnech matter, sunlight is the best disinfectant.
