The preliminary report of an audit of Dominion Voting Systems machines in a county in Michigan is big news and shows the election results are wrong, President Donald Trump asserted Tuesday.
“This is BIG NEWS. Dominion Voting Machines are a disaster all over the Country. Changed the results of a landslide election. Can’t let this happen,” Trump wrote in a social media statement, sharing a post that included the report.
In another, he wrote that “many Trump votes were routed to” Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, adding: “True all over the Country. This Fake Election can no longer stand. Get moving Republicans.”
In an initial post about the report on Monday, Trump said it “shows massive fraud.”
“The system intentionally generates an enormously high number of ballot errors. The electronic ballots are then transferred for adjudication. 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. Based on our study, we conclude that the Dominion Voting System should not be used in Michigan. We further conclude that the results of Antrim County should not have been certified,” Russell Ramsland Jr., co-founder of Allied Security Operations Group, wrote in the document.
Ramsland and others inspected and performed forensic duplication on the county’s election management server, which was running Dominion Democracy Suite 5.5.3-002. They also obtained flash cards and USB sticks.
The examination was approved by 13th Circuit Judge Kevin Elsenheimer earlier this month. The judge on Monday agreed to remove a protective order that had been blocking the public release of the report, as long as code that it contained was redacted for the time being.
Trump praised the judge, calling him “highly respected.”
“Thank you for the genius, bravery, and patriotism of the Judge. Should get a medal!” he added.
Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson, a Democrat, and Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel alleged the report lacked “credible evidence in widespread fraud or wrongdoing.”
