A Michigan lawsuit that was set to be decided on Monday morning will receive another day in court. A judge will consider next week whether or not to dismiss the case. The court case includes a request for a forensic audit and an independent audit.
“The suit asked for a forensic examination of machines used in the county, a protective order to preserve records, and an independent audit,” the Epoch Times noted on Monday. “It was filed after officials in Antrim County falsely reported Democrat Joe Biden received more votes than Republican Donald Trump.”
“The examination took place last year,” the report continued.” The team that conducted the examination asserted that Dominion Voting Systems software is flawed. Dominion and state and county officials have disputed the report from the examiners, primarily by attacking their credibility.”
A joint motion requesting Judge Kevin Elsenheimer dismiss the lawsuit was filed by Assistant Michigan Attorney General Erik Grill, who represents intervener Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson, and attorney Haider Kazim, who is representing defendant Antrim County.
The joint motion seeks to have the lawsuit dismissed for lack of standing. The judge has already allowed the complainant, Bailey and his attorney, Matthew DePerno, to have a third party conduct a forensic examination of the county’s Dominion Voting Systems equipment. That audit was conducted earlier by Allied Security Operations Group, a Dallas-based firm that concluded the voting machine equipment was fraught with errors.
“The Dominion Voting System is intentionally and purposefully designed with inherent errors to create systemic fraud and influence election results,” the audit report stated. “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…”
Antrim County had been the site of a detected error that flipped votes from Donald Trump to Joe Biden. The error was detected and corrected before the 2020 election results could be certified.
“Bailey continues to argue the county violated his constitutional rights after an error by County Clerk Sheryl Guy caused about 2,000 votes cast for then-President Donald Trump, to be initially — and mistakenly — tallied for then-challenger Joe Biden,” the Traverse Eagle reported.
“Guy, a Republican, corrected her office’s vote tally errors prior to the state’s certification of the county’s November election results, and records show Trump won Antrim County by a large margin, receiving 9,748 votes to Biden’s 5,960 votes,” the report continued.
Matthew DePerno has also requested election data from other counties, which the judge rejected as a “fishing expedition.” DePerno filed another motion on May 4 seeking to add Antrim County Clerk Sheryl Guy, state Bureau of Elections Director Jonathan Brater, and Election Source, a Dominion subcontractor, to the lawsuit as defendants, the report continued.
Meanwhile, a forensic audit of Antrim County has now been proposed and will be under discussion at a meeting in June.
“In the more than seven hour meeting, commissioners also discussed whether they have the authority to conduct their own audit, forensic accounting or hand recount of the county’s 2020 election results,” the Traverse Eagle noted. “They don’t — state law says only the Secretary of State can conduct and audit elections in Michigan.”
“A motion by Commissioner Dawn LaVanway to hire a third party to conduct a voter file review and a forensic audit of the county’s 2020 election results was tabled until the June meeting,” the report added.
On Friday, the Arizona state senate called an emergency session to issue a warning to the stalling Democratic Party that it will not only provide the missing passwords it ‘does not have,’ but also the routers that could ‘allow access to sensitive law enforcement data.’
The possibility that Maricopa County did not even have the passwords to the voting machines, while a private company did, would be an egregious abuse of public trust. The refusal to provide the routers demanded by the Arizona state senate is ringing even more alarm bells.
The legal developments in Michigan, particularly whether or not forensic audits will be permitted, will shed further light on whether or not there will ever be full accountability for 2020 election irregularities.
