It Turns Out Attorney General Merrick Garland’s Wife Was Heavily Involved in Stopping Election Audits in 2020

Attorney General Merrick Garland is the nation’s top law enforcement official. It is his duty to enforce the laws faithfully and without prejudice. However, the attorney general’s partisan agenda is made even more explicit when examining his family ties.

In 1987, the New York Times reported Merrick Garland’s marriage to Lynn Rosenman, who took the name Lynn Garland. She is the granddaughter of Samuel Rosenman, a judge at the New York Supreme Court who had served as Special Advisor to Presidents Franklin D. Roosevelt and Harry Truman.

In the Times’ announcement, it provides the background that Lynn Garland worked for E-Systems, which specializes in electronic and information warfare.

Mrs. Garland, who graduated from the Brearley School and cum laude from Harvard University, received a Master of Science degree in operations management from the Sloan School of Management at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. She is a staff assistant to the vice president in charge of operations for the Melpar division of E-Systems Inc., a defense electronics contractor in Falls Church, Va. The bride’s father is a partner in the New York law firm of Cravath, Swaine & Moore.

E-Systems, a defense contractor based out of New Jersey, has quite the shadowy profile. This is how the Washington Post described the firm in 1994, when it still did actual journalism:

If Big Brother ever took control of the United States, E-Systems Inc. would surely be its prime contractor. Consider:

* E-Systems designs spy satellite gear that can snap photographs of automobile license plates from space and capture electronic communications, from phone calls to rocket telemetry.

* E-Systems software can analyze those spy satellite photos to see if anything has changed — a Russian tank moved or an Iraqi missile site built — since the last shots were taken.

* E-Systems can build “electronic fences” to police borders. It helped build one such network of sensors to monitor drug traffickers along the U.S. border with Mexico, and the company says it hopes to build a more sophisticated one for Saudi Arabia.

* And E-Systems hardware can help federal drug enforcement agencies track cocaine planes and tap drug dealers’ telephones.

“In short, E-Systems’ technologies, part of the central nervous system for the nation’s intelligence community, are regarded as brilliant by intelligence agencies and Wall Street,” WaPo added.

Lynn Garland would go on to work with the Election Verification Network, which describes itself as a network of professionals who consult on elections (she is listed as a member on the EVN website):

Just over a decade ago, a small group of election-related professionals concerned with the integrity and improvement of U.S. voting systems considered the potential of a gathering place for leaders, experts and policy makers…one where they could exchange information, collaborate on ideas, share challenges and solutions, and serve as a trusted advisory resource for those responsible for local, statewide, and national elections. Out of that concept, the Election Verification Network (EVN) was born. Our mission includes two interwoven goals: to support and maintain voting that is accessible, private, reliable, and secure; and elections that are transparent, accurate, and verifiable.

Garland is credited as a co-author for a number of election audit documents ranging from 2008 until 2019. Of particular interest is a document she co-authored with the Brennan Center for Justice, which became notorious for fighting against 2020 election audits. The November 27, 2019 document was described as “Verified Voting in consultation with Lynn Garland, Independent Advisor, and with the Brennan Center for Justice at NYU School of Law.”

Lynn Garland authored several other audit documents, which are provided below. This is Principles and Best Practices for Post-Election Tabulation Audits (2018).

“Several of the other individuals connected with the ‘Election Verification Network’ work with far-left ‘non-profits’ that worked to prevent audits of the results of the 2020 Election,” Gateway Pundit notes.

One of Merrick Garland’s most provocative actions as attorney general was to threaten Arizona over its independent audit. In June, Garland issued a stunningly partisan announcement about Arizona’s state election integrity efforts.

“We are scrutinizing new laws that seek to curb voter access and where we see violations we will not hesitate to act,” he said. “We are also scrutinizing current laws and practices in order to determine whether they discredit against black voters and other voters of color. Particularly concerning with in this regard are several studies showing that in some jurisdictions nonwhite voters must wait in line substantially longer than white voters to cast their ballots.”

Arizona’s Attorney General Mark Brnovich was compelled to respond to the U.S. Attorney General Garland over his office’s threats.

“My office is not amused by the DOJ’s posturing and will not tolerate any effort to undermine or interfere with the State Senate’s audit to reassure Arizonans of the accuracy of our elections,” the letter added. “We stand ready to defend federalism and state sovereignty against any partisan attacks or federal overreach.”

“It is important to remember that the states created the federal government, not the other way around,” it went on. “America’s founders intentionally restrained the federal government’s constitutional boundaries to ensure each state could flourish in unique ways. Today, our federal government has largely forgotten the Founders’ intent, but my office has not.”

Attorney General Garland has turned a blind eye to the actual infringement of Americans’ rights, such as those stemming from unlawful vaccine mandates. In addition, he has excused rioting by Black Lives Matter and Antifa while persecuting January 6 defendants, many of whom only face minor criminal charges like trespassing. Garland has threatened states that seek answers about what actually happened during the 2020 elections. Worst of all, he has unleashed the FBI on parents who oppose Critical Race Theory being taught in their children’s schools.

It should come as no surprise, then, that Merrick Garland’s wife was deeply involved in the 2020 election debacle, and his son-in-law is cashing in on American schools’ disgraceful Critical Race Theory agenda.

In many ways, Attorney General Merrick Garland has already surpassed his predecessors in terms of open partisanship and sheer corruption. Garland’s conflicts of interest quite apparently run deep; none more serious than his conflict of interest with the Constitution of the United States.
