Cyber Ninjas, the cybersecurity company hired to conduct the Arizona Audit of Maricopa county elections, is being investigated by House Democrats.
Representatives Carolyn Maloney (D-NY) and Jamie Raskin (D-MD) asked is Cyber Ninjas want to “reverse the result of a free and fair election for partisan gain.”
As reported by CNBC, both representatives are demanding a large amount of documentation regarding the company’s operations and internal communications, including financial information and any communications the company has had with Donald Trump and/or his affiliates.
Maloney and Raskin told Cyber Ninjas CEO Douglas Logan in a letter:
“We are concerned about your company’s role in this highly unusual effort, given Cyber Ninjas’ apparent lack of experience in conducting election-related audits; reports that the company engaged in sloppy and insecure audit practices that compromised the integrity of ballots and voting equipment and were questioned by the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ); and evidence that you and other individuals funding the audit have sought to advance the ‘big lie’ of debunked voter fraud allegations in the November 2020 presidential election.”
The letter went on to say, “Americans’ right to vote is protected by the Constitution and is the cornerstone of our democratic system of government. The Committee is seeking to determine whether the privately funded audit conducted by your company in Arizona protects the right to vote or is instead an effort to promote baseless conspiracy theories, undermine confidence in America’s elections, and reverse the result of a free and fair election for partisan gain.”
