Judge Orders Release of Finding from Forensic Audit in Michigan
In an explosive turn of events, a Judge in Michigan has agreed to release the preliminary report from the forensic audit conducted on about two dozen Dominion Voting Machines. The audit was granted a little over a week ago with the attorney for President Trump, Jenna Ellis, saying that results would be released in only 48 hours. However, the Attorney General and Secretary of State in Michigan moved to have the report blocked from being released to the public.
Today, Matthew DePerno, who is representing an Antrim County resident behind a lawsuit challenging a local marijuana retailer proposal, requested that the Judge lift the order blocking the release of this report. The Judge agreed to lift the order so long as the source code was redacted, which is the grounds on which the AG was able to request the report remain out of view of the public eye. This flimsy reason was negated with the ability to redact the information.
Damning Information Contained in the Preliminary Report
The report was released shortly after the hearing, conducted via zoom, concluded. This 23-page preliminary report contains overwhelming damning evidence of vote tampering. It is important to note that the attorney representing the SOS requested that the image on page 18 of the report also be redacted. The page contained an image from Dominion Voting Systems’ publicly available manual, so the request was denied.
The image in question shows RCVA or “Ranked Choice Voting Algorithm.” This is a feature that allows the user to “weight” votes. For example, you can rate a vote for one candidate to count for only 2/3 of a vote, resulting in fractional voting. The report concluded, based on the logs, that this feature was in fact, enabled. (Page 18, number 3)
Twenty-Three Pages of Forensic Evidence
It is evident why the AG and the SOS of Michigan did not want this report to be made public. The evidence found in this preliminary report alone contradicts public statements given by SOS Jocelyn Benson. Her claims that the “correct results always were and continue to be reflected on the tabulator totals” are false.
On page three, number 12 of the report, it is stated “a staggering number of votes required adjudication. This was a 2020 issue not seen in previous election cycles still stored on the server. This is caused by the intentional errors in the system. The intentional errors led to bulk adjudication of ballots with no oversight, no transparency, or audit trail.”
Bulk Adjudication and Erased Audit Logs
One of the most damning pieces of evidence included in this report is the finding that a staggering 81.96% (page 19, number 6) of ballots were sent to be adjudicated. This means that those ballots were flagged by the software and sent to an adjudication worker to decide “voter intent” and subsequently cast the ballot for the voter. The worker has full authority to change votes with no oversight or even a way to trace back to who made the change. In some of the hearings before the legislatures, we learned that Dominion workers were the ones running the adjudication computers.
In addition, on page three number 16, it is revealed that all server security logs prior to 11:03 PM on November 4, 2020, are now “missing.” All the logs on election day and the day after are mysteriously gone. Other server logs are present so a “glitch” cannot explain why these specific logs containing information on outside attacks, times users logged on and off, internet connections, data transfers, and more have vanished. Moreover, there is evidence shown that an unauthorized user attempted to zero out the election results on November 21, 2020. There is clear evidence of tampering.
Michigan Results are Not Certifiable
With these findings, there is no way the results in Michigan can be legally certified. Not only are there tabulation inconsistencies and proof that votes were “flipped,” there is evidence of tampering with the logs to cover up exactly what happened. Given the irregularities and reports of fraud all over the state of Michigan, it is paramount that all machines be seized and a forensic audit conducted immediately.
The fact that the SOS of Michigan adamantly refuses to allow transparency and conduct such audits is abhorrent. After the findings in this one county, we can conclude that the rest of the counties using the same software need to be examined to ensure this large scale of tampering and apparent fraud did not occur in each of those counties. Until this is resolved, Congress cannot and should not accept the results as they stand. There is a probability that given the time and resources, more evidence in line with this report will be found.
