In Georgia, Attorney Lin Wood argued for an injunction against Georgia certifying its election results. He argued before a conservative Trump-appointed federal judge who gave Wood every opportunity to present evidence that substantiated his claims. Wood had none and the judge refused to stop certification.
Also in Georgia, the hand recount of the Dominion Voter Systems machines matches the machine count. The audit found some uncounted votes, but county by county the hand count and machine count have been almost perfect and in those counties where it deviates, there are examinations why. In no county does the deviation extend beyond single digits. Trump team members are now complaining about absentee ballots, having failed to advance the notion that the machines were rigged.
The problem with their absentee signature claim is that the state began examining signatures before the election and the Trump team and Republican Party of Georgia did not object, observe, or care. Their time to object and observe was then and they did not participate.
In Bucks County, PA, Rudy Guiliani claimed hundreds of thousands of votes were illegal or fraudulent. Then he went to federal court and specifically said the Trump team was making no allegations about fraud and would not argue it. He was the second Trump lawyer in Pennsylvania to say there was no fraud in Pennsylvania while in court.
In Wisconsin, the Trump team is asking for a recount, but they are not asking for recounts in any county that uses Dominion Voter Systems.
In Michigan, upon examination of 234 pages of affidavits, a judge tossed the fraud claims. The claims amounted to no more than 1000 votes out of 148,000+ votes cast and, more importantly, upon the testimony of the affiants, it was clear they just didn’t understand the process and had not shown up for their training.
In Arizona, people filed scores of affidavits about the voting system there and the use of sharpie markers on the ballots. Not only was it physically shown that the ballots could be counted with sharpies and bleed-through of the markers was not an issue, but the affiants, under examination, all recanted their affidavits. That is important. All these people swore out affidavits and under examination walked back their claims.
Now come Sidney Powell and Rudy Guiliani to tell us about the crime of the century. Hugo Chavez, prior to his death some years ago, designed a system to help Joe Biden become President of the United States. Except there is no evidence and Powell and Guiliani have not presented evidence. They claim they will present evidence in court, but have not done so. They have filed no case.
Smartmatic, the alleged software used on the Dominion machines, is not used on the Dominion machines. There is no evidence for that, there are denials from both companies, and no one has been able to show it. The public affidavits claim Dominion’s systems could be hacked but do not claim that they actually were hacked.
Dominion does not have ties to the Clinton team or George Soros despite claims to the contrary.
There is literally zero evidence about Dominion Voter Systems and each time Powell and Guiliani have been given the opportunity to present it publicly, they have declined claiming their witnesses would be harassed.
Well, time is running out. If they truly have what they claim to have, they will need to go to court. My guess is they will claim any judge they go before is in on the theft of the election and that’s why he would not consider their evidence.
At this point, I find this both deeply harmful and bordering on malicious. I would not be surprised if Dominion Voter Systems files a defamation claim against them. My suspicion is that this is payback for the Democrats’ treatment of Trump after 2016 and a whole lot of people want to be lied to and will believe it all despite zero evidence.
Nope, I do not believe this conspiracy theory. It is just that — a conspiracy theory. It will not stop Joe Biden’s inauguration and the GOP would be wise to move on from a deeply destructive lie that only exists to settle pre-existing grievances about the 2016 election.
