A Michigan attorney involved in the Antrim County case said he hopes President Donald Trump will act after a forensic audit report of Dominion Voting Systems machines described the devices as faulty and “intentionally” programmed to produce significant numbers of tabulation errors.
Matthew DePerno, who is representing an Antrim County plaintiff, told Newsmax Monday that he hopes Trump and the White House read the report (pdf) from Allied Security Operations Group “and understand how significant the findings are.”
“We hope that we’ve given him something to go on here based on our investigation because if this happened in Antrim County and with these machines, there’s 48 other counties in Michigan that used the same machines, and there’s hundreds of counties across the country that also use them. And foreign interference like this needs to be dealt with, and I think the president will take action,” he said of the findings in the report, which was tweeted by President Trump on Monday.
Allied Security Operations and its co-founder Russell Ramsland, a former NASA official and official in the Reagan administration, said that they found that ballot-adjudication logs and the security logs for the Nov. 3 general election in Antrim County’s Dominion Voting Systems machines were removed. They said the logs of prior elections before Nov. 3 were still there.
“The adjudication process is the simplest way to manually manipulate votes. The lack of records prevents any form of audit accountability, and their conspicuous absence is extremely suspicious since the files exist for previous years using the same software,” Ramsland wrote. “We must conclude that the 2020 election cycle records have been manually removed.”
Ramsland furthermore said his team found that Antrim County’s machines rejected a considerable number of ballots for adjudication, a manual process that allows election workers to cure ballots before they are re-submitted. Those machines, he said, had an error rate of 68.05 percent—while the Federal Election Commission allows for an error rate of 0.0008 percent.
The report also stipulated that Dominion’s machines were “intentionally and purposefully designed with inherent errors” to produce “systemic fraud” during the election.
“The system intentionally generates an enormously high number of ballot errors. The electronic ballots are then transferred for adjudication,” Ramsland wrote. “The intentional errors lead to bulk adjudication of ballots with no oversight, no transparency, and no audit trail. This leads to voter or election fraud.”
