Dominion Voting Systems CEO Calls Fraud Allegations “Beyond Bizarre”
Dominion Voting Systems CEO, John Poulos, gainsaid a torrent of republican-spearheaded allegations in a Michigan State Senate’s Oversight Committee hearing on Tuesday, Dec.15, which contended widespread voter fraud via compromisation of Dominion’s vote-tabulating machines.
Poulos deemed the allegations (which were largely put forth by former Trump attorney Sidney Powell in his entitled “The Kraken” legal efforts) as “beyond bizarre” and maintained that they were a direct manifestation of a “disinformation campaign,” and “inaccurate” legal claims against his company’s operations.
Populous asserted that even in the remote event that the Dominion’s tabulating machines were compromised, a physical count of the paper votes would have demonstrated discernible inconsistencies and, accordingly, prevented the vote from being certified by the Board of State Canvassers.
“All the tabulator does is count the votes of the paper ballots that have been created and securely cast by the voters,” Poulos said.
“The number reported by the machine can always be compared to a hand count of those original paper ballots. People can speculate about votes being switched or secret algorithms or glitches, but if any of that were true, the paper ballots wouldn’t match the machine count.”
Populous, in addition, dismissed allegations by the “The Kraken” legal efforts, which aimed to tie foreign obstruction from Iran and China to the purported compromisation of Dominion tabulating operations. “The Kraken” legal efforts evidenced their claim with an affidavit.
“The company also does not have any ties to China whatsoever, including no ties involving investment or source code transfer,” he said.
“There are no ownership ties to any political parties nor to foreign governments. Dominion has no ties to the Pelosi family, Feinstein family, Clinton family, or George Soros,” he said.
Poulos went on to rebut further claims of Dominion ties with ‘Smartmatic’ (a voting-software-company whose platform was manipulated to aid in the fraudulent Venezuelean elections of the deceased Hugo Chavez.)
“Dominion does not have any ties to Smartmatic,” Poulos said.
“Dominion and Smartmatic are two separate companies. We do not use or license Smartmatic software. The extent of our relationship is this: In 2009, Smartmatic licensed the use of a Dominion voting machine for use in the Philippines. That agreement is long over, and they no longer have the ability to use any of our intellectual property,” he continued.
“Dominion is not and has never been a front for communists,” he continued.
“It has no ties to Hugo Chavez, the late dictator of Venezuela. We have never been involved in Venezuelan elections. Its machines have never been used in Venezuela.”
Poulos’s testimony comes after a lawsuit made by a local Michangander which claimed electoral malfeasance per compromisation of the Dominion vote-tabulating machines.
The overseeing judge of the case allowed for a “forensic audit” to be conducted and released by an IT group, who was previously involved with the series of other Trump-administration alleged voting-fraud lawsuits.
The released audit indicated that the Dominion tabulation machines are “intentionally and purposefully designed with inherent errors to create systemic fraud and influence election results.”
State and Dominion officials contest the findings, refuting them as specious and misleading.
