Sidney Powell, a member of President Trump’s legal team, revealed on Monday that she has obtained a sworn affidavit from a high-ranking military officer that describes in detail how Smartmatic’s voting software was specifically designed to manipulate election outcomes. Smartmatic was developed by three engineers in Caracas, Venezuala. According to the affidavit, the officer was present when the company’s voting software was being created.
Powell and Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani have in recent days been sounding the alarm about the corrupt, Democrat-tied Dominion Voting Systems, which is used in 30 states. Dominion’s software is handled by Smartmatic, which, according to the affidavit, designed the software to meet the needs of former Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez.
Powell appeared on Fox Business last night with host Lou Dobbs, who announced toward the end of the interview that the FBI is investigating the 2020 election.
Reading from the affidavit, the attorney revealed that former Chavez had insisted that the software be designed “in a way that the system could change the vote of each voter without being detected.”
He wanted the software itself to function in such a manner that if the voter were to place their thumbprint or fingerprint on a scanner, then the thumbprint would be tied to a record of the voter’s name and identity as having voted, but that voter would not be tracked to the changed vote.
He made it clear that the system would have to be set up to not leave any evidence of the changed vote for a specific voter and that there would be no evidence to show and nothing to contradict that the name or the fingerprint or thumbprint was going with a changed vote.
Smartmatic agreed to create such a system and produced the software and hardware that accomplished that result for President Chavez.
The military officer swore in the affidavit that after the vote-rigging system was put into place, he “closely observed several elections where the results were manipulated,” including the 2006 election between Chavez and his opponent Manuel Rosales. Chavez won that race in a landslide, 6 million votes to 3.7 million votes.
“It goes on and on,” Powell told Dobbs. “He was in the control room where multiple digital display screens were shown for results and voting, The actual voting results were fed into that room and onto the displays over an internet feed which was connected to a sophisticated internet system created by Smartmatic. People in that room were able to see in real time whether the votes that came through the electronic voting system was in their favor, or against them.”
Most significantly, she said, according to the officer’s testimony, “persons controlling the vote tabulation computer had the ability to change the recording of votes by moving votes from one candidate to the other by using the Smartmatic software.” Powell pointed out that the vote-rigging software has been used all over the world, “and it’s all Venezuelan, Cuban and essentially communist money doing this.”
The Cuban regime’s involvement in funding voting software tech companies is significant, according to Michael Waller, Vice President for Government Relations at the Center for Security Policy.
“Intelligence and subversion are Cuba’s only significant manufactured exports,” wrote Waller. “Regimes like China, Russia, and Venezuela pay Cuba for the services.”
Dobbs said that he found it “extraordinary” that the Chairman of the Board of Directors of Smartmatic, former Admiral Peter Neffenger, just happens to be on former Vice President Joe Biden’s transition team.
Powell said that it’s also extraordinary that Smartmatic’s software was being used all around the world and the CIA somehow didn’t know about it.
“People have been reporting this to our government for several years, including Democrats, and nobody’s done a damn thing about it!” Powell exclaimed. “I can’t even express how furious I am.”
Dobbs cut in to say a “highly reliable source” informed him that the FBI has an investigative team looking into the election results.
“I do have some news to break here at this moment. I have now received word from a highly reliable source that the FBI does have an investigative team that is now looking into this election. Now, what that means beyond that — but at least its confirmation that they are investigating, and we’ll see what moves,” Dobbs said.
Later on in the show, former Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) corroborated Dobbs’ report, saying the FBI was investigating “astonishing acts of misconduct, for days, associated with the vote count.”
