Tony Shaffer, president of the London Center for Policy Research and a former senior intelligence officer, told The Epoch Times that action should be taken to address election anomalies and restore people’s confidence in the election system.
“We feel that the anomalies here are too vast and too detailed to be ignored,” Shaffer told Jan Jekielek, host of The Epoch Times’ “American Thought Leaders” program.
“We’re not advocating for the president,” Shaffer stressed. “We’re not advocating for any specific outcome. We’re specifically asking for investigations or other resolution of the questions we’re raising.”
Shaffer said there are three categories of “self-apparent” evidence that show at least the “perception of fraud,” and to reject investigating all three is “completely unreasonable.”
First is the obvious statistical anomalies. Shaffer explained that his intelligence team at the London Center checked the data from Edison Research—a provider of exit poll data for major television networks—and found anomalous spikes in numerous locations.
These votes “statistically cannot be supported without some level of outside force,” Shaffer said, adding that in all swing states, there were also anomalies reported from about midnight to 5 a.m. He also noted the statistical unlikelihood for the mismatch in results for so many bellwether counties.
Secondly, Shaffer said there had been many potential acts of physical fraud, referring to his investigation of truck driver Jesse Morgan’s case.
Shaffer said he was the first to contact Morgan because, at that time, he was helping the Thomas More Society’s Amistad Project, an initiative that works to preserve civil liberties, to sort through whistleblowers.
Morgan, who was working for a U.S. Postal Service subcontractor, claimed that he was instructed to act outside of normal operations when driving a truck filled with an estimated 288,000 ballots on Oct. 21 to Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, from Bethpage, New York. The truck—and the ballots—then disappeared from a USPS depot in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, after Morgan dropped them off and was instructed to leave.
“You never leave a truck in a facility, loaded. It’s against the law, you cannot leave,” Shaffer said.
Shaffer said he and his team took 30 days to independently verify Morgan’s account of events with a number of former postmasters and investigators, who confirmed many peculiarities, such as the mail sitting idle in a postal yard for six hours, those involved refusing to open the back of the truck, and the truck not being metered, which is in violation of Postal Service regulations and the law.
“If I’m going to put my reputation behind something, it’s going to be professional, it’s going to be thorough,” Shaffer said. “I was prepared to put my reputation behind Jesse Morgan. And I did.”
Shaffer said the third category of evidence is electronic or digital fraud.
“That’s the most difficult to prove because you have to get access to the source code and the actual mechanical elements of those systems,” Shaffer said. “There’s absolutely no reason for anyone to deny a competent third party from examining the machines at the forensic level to see if there were any shenanigans or not.”
Last week, a judge in Antrim County, Michigan, authorized a forensic audit of 22 Dominion Voting Systems machines. Trump campaign attorney Jenna Ellis confirmed on Dec. 7 that an independent team is involved in the audit, with a report to come out soon.
“So those are the three categories of fraud, and I believe that anyone who denies them is a science-denier because there’s ample evidence,” Shaffer said in the interview. “The only question is, was it sufficient fraud to overturn or somehow influence the results of the election? That’s the key question that needs to be resolved at this point.”
“I’ve been fascinated by the lack of interest by the Biden folks in resolving any of this, other than to say it’s too late, or it’s ‘safe harbor,’” Shaffer said.
“I would argue, again, fraud is never too late to worry about, especially when you’re talking about the policy directions of the most significant superpower left on the planet, and with a lot of challenges coming up.
“I would actually call on the Biden folks to get out there and try to help resolve this as quickly as possible. It’s in their interest to do so,” Shaffer said. “Seventy-three million people are not convinced Joe Biden won. That is the audience Joe Biden should be seeking to convince at this time, and I don’t see him doing it.”
