Former President Donald Trump on Monday applauded Arizona Senate President Karen Fann for questioning why the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors has not cooperated with the Arizona attorney general's request for 2020 election documents. 

Fann, a Republican whose district covers Yavapai County and portions of Maricopa County, tweeted Monday, "Looks like Maricopa [Board of Supervisors] doesn’t want to comply with AG’s request for documents. What are they hiding now?" She included a photo of a letter from Assistant Attorney General Jennifer Wright requesting the Maricopa board and county recorder to provide documents.

Trump issued a statement later that day on Fann's tweet and said she is "is asking the exact right question about the corrupt Maricopa County Board of Supervisors."

"Based on the already released information regarding the Rigged and Stolen 2020 Presidential Election, including mail-in ballots without signatures and forgeries, as well as the disgusting refusal to turn over documents, now is finally the time for the Arizona Attorney General to issue warrants and take his investigation to the next level," the former president said.

"The supervisors the just won’t release the information—it must really be bad!" Trump wrote. "The American people deserve answers, and there is no time to waste!"

Wright asked the board on March 9 to provide voter registration records, documents and communications on ballot affidavit signatures, and all materials used by Maricopa County in conducting the 2020 general election. She cited two pilot studies showing issues with ballot signatures in the election.
