The $6million, Republican-backed review of the 2020 presidential election in Arizona's largest county officially ended Friday and found no proof that the Arizona election was stolen from Donald Trump.
The hand count shows Trump received 45,469 fewer votes than Biden. The county results showed he lost by 45,109.
Maricopa County Board Chairman Jack Sellers, a Republican, called Friday's hearing 'irresponsible and dangerous.'
Despite Trump's Thursday promise of 'huge findings' and vindication, the six-month search for evidence of fraud found Biden won by 360 more votes than the official results that were certified last year.
Cyber Ninjas, the Senate’s lead contractor who compiled the forensic report, said in its 100-plus page report that there were 'no substantial differences' between the group’s hand count of ballots and the official count.
The report also made a series of other disputed claims the auditors say should cast doubt on the accuracy and warrant more investigation.

'The Cyber Ninjas’ opinions come from a misuse and misunderstanding of the data provided by the county and are twisted to fit the narrative that something went wrong,' Sellers said in a statement.
'Once again, these "auditors" threw out wild, damaging, false claims in the middle of their audit and Senate leadership provided them the platform to present their opinions, suspicions, and faulty conclusions unquestioned and unchallenged.
'Today these "auditors" falsely and recklessly accused Maricopa County of potential crimes and Senate leadership amplified those lies.'
The Maricopa County Twitter account live-tweeted the Friday press conference on the results of the Arizona audit and fact-checked Cyber Ninjas' claims.
