A forensic audit report of Dominion voting machines in Michigan’s Antrim County was released on Monday. The Dominion voting machines received national attention after an “error” caused 6,000 votes for Trump to flip to votes for Biden.
The audit was produced by Allied Security Operations Group, a company working closely with Trump’s attorneys on election fraud. The report was under a protective order until Monday when 13th Circuit Court Judge Kevin Elsenheimer announced that the group could release the findings.
Elsenheimer, a former Republican lawmaker, allowed the release because state and county officials dropped their objections. The Democratic Michigan Secretary of State claims the report is “inaccurate, incomplete and misleading.”
“The Antrim County Clerk and Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson have stated that the election night error detailed above by the vote ‘flip’ from Trump to Biden, was the result of human error caused by the failure to update the Mancelona Township tabulator prior to election night for a down ballot race,” the report says. It continues, “We disagree and conclude that the vote flip occurred because of machine error built into the voting software designed to create error.”
“We conclude that the Dominion Voting System is intentionally and purposefully designed with inherent errors to create systemic fraud and influence election results,” the report added. “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.”
Allied Security Operations Group argues that the Dominion system “should not be used in Michigan” and the Antrim County results “should not have been certified.”
“The erroneous reporting of unofficial results from Antrim county was a result of accidental error on the part of the Antrim County Clerk,” the state said. “The equipment and software did not malfunction and all ballots were properly tabulated. However, the clerk accidentally did not update the software used to collect voting machine data and report unofficial results.”
Dominion released a statement on Monday, saying the error occurred because officials did not update the programming. They also claimed that the error was caught in the post-election canvass process.
“The post-election canvass process is designed to catch errors, which is exactly where these errors were discovered,” the company said.
