State GOP chair Kelli Ward has no legal right to block a U.S. House committee from getting her phone records about her activities leading up to the Jan. 6th insurrection, an attorney for the government is telling a federal judge.

Douglas Letter said Ward “participated in multiple aspects” to interfere with the electoral count that was taking place, as reported by Howard Fischer of Capitol Media Services.  

“She told Maricopa County to stop counting ballots, and promoted inaccurate allegations of election interference by Dominion Voting Systems,” wrote Letter, who is the general counsel for the U.S. House. And then there’s the fact that even after the state’s election results were certified showing Joe Biden won Arizona, she and others convened as electors for Donald Trump “and sent a set of unauthorized Electoral College votes to Congress that she misdescribed as ‘representing the legal votes of Arizona,”’ Fischer reported in Arizona Capitol Times.

In filing suit earlier this year, Ward argued that providing her phone records would violate her rights and those of her husband, Michael, who, like her, is a doctor.
