A series of errors in vote tabulation have left President Donald Trump and his supporters with little faith in the Dominion Voting Systems machines that were used this year in counties across America. The media has tried to debunk reports of an incorrect count by saying that all the problems were caused by human error — but in the eyes of Fox News host Sean Hannity, that answer still isn’t good enough.
The Fox star revealed during a recent episode of his self-titled show that his team has launched a full-fledged investigation into Dominion Voting and its allegedly faulty machines — and he’s uncovered some bombshells.
Questions about the machines were first raised in the days after Nov. 3’s elections, when reports indicated that a software “glitch” with Dominion Voting machines had led to votes that were supposed to be counted for President Trump in Michigan being tabulated for Democrat Joe Biden.
Now, however, those reports have been walked back. In a recent update to an article dated Nov. 7, Breitbart said “Michigan Secretary of State’s office has stated that the 6,000 vote mistake in favor of Democrats was due to human error, as the operator of the system did not update the software that’s needed to collect voting data and report results.”
But the systems were used in 28 different states, reports noted, and Hannity wants to know if similar human errors could have occurred elsewhere.
“During the presidential election, Dominion voting machines, they were used in all of Georgia’s 159 counties. And as we all know, that is a state with a razor-thin margin. So, the question must be asked — by the way, don’t expect the media mob to ever ask it — are Dominion systems prone to human error?” Hannity pressed in his recent monologue, according to a transcript from Fox.
We need answers
The Fox host also dug into Dominion’s past, citing a June New York Times report on Georgia’s primary that revealed numerous problems with Dominion machines, including that they required extra power, which led to blown fuses and other problems, and that they had issues with freezing software and frequent user error.
Hannity also pointed to a 2018 Associated Press report that said Dominion and two other “leading voting-related companies” had “long skimped on security in favor of convenience, making it more difficult to detect intrusions.”
Perhaps raising the most eyebrows were statements from Andre Appel, a Princeton professor who has testified before Congress about problems with voting machines.
“Whether that computer counts the votes accurately or makes mistakes or cheats by shifting votes from one candidate to another depends on what software is installed in the computer,” Appel said on Capitol Hill in 2017, according to Hannity. “Installing new software is how you hack a voting machine to cheat.”
While it’s not solid proof that any nefarious went on in this year’s elections, Hannity has made clear that he won’t stop asking questions until we know for sure. “Seventy-two million Americans voted for Donald Trump. All of them, all of us, deserve an answer,” he said, according to Fox’s transcript. Take a look:
