A Michigan judge agreed to release an audit report on voting machines that President Donald Trump welcomed as an “epic” exposure of election fraud, The Detroit Free Press reported.
The report, which deals with Dominion Voting Systems, claims that voting machines used in a Michigan county were “intentionally and purposefully designed” to “create systemic fraud and influence election results.”
Release Dominion report
The report is the product of a forensic analysis conducted by Allied Security Operations Group.
Judge Kevin Elsenheimer of the 13th Circuit Court agreed to remove a protective order blocking its release in an Antrim County lawsuit after a request from an attorney for plaintiff William Bailey. Democratic Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson said she was not opposed.
The president and his allies have for weeks claimed that Dominion Voting Systems machines were manipulated to switch votes from Trump to Democratic nominee Joe Biden.
The 23-page preliminary report claims that Dominion Voting Systems machines are “purposefully designed with inherent errors to create systemic fraud and influence election results” and that Dominion machines had an error rate of 68% in Antrim County, Newsmax reported.
Antrim County attracted attention after it flipped from Biden to Trump, something Benson chalked up to human error. The report claims that the “flip occurred because of machine error built into the voting software designed to create error.”
Michigan dismisses report
Dominion Voting Systems denied the report, which it said was part of a “continuing malicious and widespread disinformation campaign.”
Following previous battles with Trump allies concerning election fraud, Benson and Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel dismissed the report as “another in a long stream of misguided, vague and dubious assertions designed to erode public confidence in the November presidential election.”
The report came as the Electoral College voted for Biden on Monday, leaving critics to say that the window is closing for Trump to challenge the election results. But Trump has refused to concede defeat in what he has called a fraudulent election.
“68% error rate in Michigan Voting Machines. Should be, by law, a tiny percentage of one percent. Did Michigan Secretary of State break the law? Stay tuned!” Trump tweeted.
