BREAKING: Trump Advisor Says Arizona Legislature Considers Using ‘Sergeant-at-Arms’ to Enforce Subpoenas on Maricopa County Today

December 23, 2020 | 5:25 PM ET

Trump 2020 advisor Boris Epshteyn joined Steve Bannon’s podcast “War Room” this afternoon. During the interview, Epshteyn said the Arizona legislature is considering using a “sergeant-at-arms” to enforce the legislative subpoenas on Maricopa County “today.”

Epshteyn said the news is “unconfirmed as of yet,” but said he is receiving information in “real-time.”

Earlier this month, the Arizona legislature issued the Maricopa County several legislative subpoenas, demanding that election officials produce the Dominion voting machines and other information for inspection. But last week, the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors told state lawmakers they would not comply with the subpoenas.

The sergeant-at-arms is an officer appointed by a legislative body tasked with keeping order during its meetings. The sergeant-at-arms may also be vested with law enforcement powers, such as enforcing the legislature’s subpoenas. For example, the sergeant-at-arms of the U.S. House of Representatives shares the same law enforcement powers as the US Capitol Police, including the authority to carry a gun.
