"We conclude that the Dominion Voting System is intentionally and purposefully designed with inherent errors to create systemic fraud and influence election results," wrote the Allied Security Operations Group, an election watchdog who carried out a forensic audit on multiple Dominion machines in Antrim County, Michigan. (Related: "Glitch" in Michigan county gives Biden an extra 6,000 votes – similar anomalies found in 47 other counties.)
Allied Security Operations is led by Matthew DePerno, a local lawyer representing a plaintiff involved in an election-fraud case.
"The system intentionally generates an enormously high number of ballot errors," continued the report. "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."
Allied Security Operations called Dominion's involvement in the election a "national security imperative." They have asked Trump to invoke an executive order he issued back in 2018 that would direct John Ratcliffe, the Director of National Intelligence, to conduct an assessment to determine whether there was rampant foreign interference in the recent election. It would also allow Trump to take appropriate action against the foreign actors who are found tampering or in any way attempting to influence the election results.
"We recommend that an independent group should be empaneled to determine the extent of adjudication errors throughout the State of Michigan," said Russell Ramsland, a former Republican congressional candidate in Texas, a cybersecurity expert and current member of Allied Security Operations' management team.
"This is a national security issue."
According to Allied Security Operations' analysis of Antrim County's "tabulation log," the county had an "error rate" of 68 percent. They then claimed that the results that came in from the county are not certifiable and that the error rate is too high for this to simply be human error. It must have been caused by the software.
Allied Security Operations' report was released after Circuit Court Judge Kevin Elsenheimer allowed them to publicly release and discuss the information they were able to collect. The data was previously under a protective order, with state and county officials objecting to the report's release.
When The Epoch Times attempted to reach out to Dominion Voting Systems for a comment regarding the report, the firm repeatedly denied that they or any foreign entity have the power to change the outcome of the election through their software or through the glitches that are rampant within their systems.
In a different statement, Dominion argued that there weren't actually any software glitches in Antrim County or anywhere else in the state. The company said that the problems that were uncovered were actually just "isolated human errors not involving Dominion." They said that local officials failed to update the system on their Dominion machines, which caused the errors.
Dominion is alleging that they have been deliberately targeted in a campaign of "malicious and widespread disinformation… aimed at eroding confidence in the integrity of the 2020 presidential election." They argue that all of their systems have gone through rigorous federal and state testing to make sure that the results they produce actually represent the way people voted.
Dominion isn't the only entity outright denying the contents of Allied Security Operations' report.
Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson and Attorney General Dana Nessel, both Democrats, issued a joint statement that called the report "another in a long stream of misguided, vague and dubious assertions designed to erode public confidence in the November presidential election."
"If the Trump campaign had any actual evidence of wrongdoing or genuine suspicion thereof, they could have requested a hand recount of every ballot in the state," added Benson in a statement released on Monday.
Benson alleged that Allied Security Operations is a "shadowy organization" that has no right to call itself an expert on matters of election security and that all the group has done is fabricate baseless allegations of voter fraud and election tampering "in an effort to mislead American voters and undermine the integrity of the election."
Nessel argued that the Trump campaign hired Ramsland and Allied Security Operations in order to support the conclusion they want, and not out of a genuine desire to uncover the truth.
"It's why we give the other parties in a lawsuit a chance to depose the expert and challenge their qualifications in court," said Nessel.
Antrim County Clerk Sheryl Guy, a Republican, said that efforts made by the Trump campaign to "discredit" how they ran their election have saddened her.
"I did read the report," she said, "and found that there are many misleading statements that are simply not accurate."
Michigan Elections Director Jonathan Brater said in a report responding to Allied Security Operations' findings that the group's conclusions were supposedly "unsupported." Brater argued that what the group saw as fraud and intentional obfuscation were nothing more than "routine election procedures or error corrections."
The results of the forensic audit and the current lawsuit against Antrim County have forced county officials and the Michigan Bureau of Elections to begin a hand tally of every single ballot cast for their presidential election. This, Brater said, will provide all the proof necessary to show "that the Antrim County results are accurate."
This hand recount is set to begin on Thursday, Dec. 17.
