During a hearing held on Wednesday, Dec. 16, of the Senate Oversight Committee, attorney Jesse Binnall, from President Trump’s campaign, said his team’s work was frustrated at every turn in Nevada as they sought transparency during the post-election legal disputes.
“We were denied (transparency) in Nevada at every single turn,” Binnall told the Senate panel. “The legal system didn’t allow for transparency,” he added in connection with a lawsuit alleging massive vote fraud.
Binnall said Nevada election officials refused to accept subpoenas or legal documents requiring them to cooperate with Trump’s legal team’s investigation, according to Just the News.
Binnall said that in order to protect the electoral integrity of the United States it was a duty to ensure “transparency,” regretting that in this case there was an absence.
Trump’s campaign lawyer revealed weeks ago that more than 8,000 absentee ballots cast in Nevada had false addresses and nearly 20,000 votes were cast by nonresidents, adding that at least 500 dead votes and 42,000 double votes were recorded in the state.
The hearing also featured an opening statement from Republican Sen. Ron Johnson of Wisconsin, who suggested that experts should be allowed to examine Dominion voting machines used in the 2020 election.
“The most difficult allegations to assess involve vulnerabilities in voting machines and the software used,” said Johnson, who chairs the Senate Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee.
“In order to effectively determine the extent to which voting machines were subject to nefarious intrusion or other vulnerabilities, computer science experts must be given the opportunity to examine these allegations,” he continued.
Johnson’s call followed the release of a preliminary report on the audit of 16 voting machines at Dominion Voting System in Antrim County, Michigan.
Analyses by a team of forensic experts concluded that the machines were “intentionally and purposefully designed with inherent errors to create systemic fraud and influence election results.”
Johnson referred to the safety of the voting machines as a complex issue that has been examined before by Democratic lawmakers.
“These vendors make little to no information publicly available on how much money they dedicate to research and development, or to maintenance of their voting systems and technology. They also share little or no information regarding annual profits or executive compensation for their owners,” wrote Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren last year.
