Members of President Donald Trump’s legal team held a public hearing Monday with select members of Arizona’s legislature to gather and examine evidence of 2020 election irregularities and fraud in the state.
The point of the “fact-finding mission,” led by Trump lawyers Rudy Giuliani and Jenna Ellis, was to collect evidence for Arizona lawmakers that would justify holding a special session to investigate further.
Giuliani’s first witness at the was officer retired U.S. Army Colonel Phil Waldron, a cybersecurity expert who spent half of his 30-year military career as a cavalry officer, conducting armed reconnaissance, and the last half of his career in information warfare.
Waldron stated that the common software in most of the automated systems operating in the United States today come from Smartmatic Voting Systems and are vulnerable to hackers or on-site manipulation.
Waldon said that his “white hat hackers” had witnessed Dominion communicating with overseas servers, directly contradicting fired Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) Director Chris Krebs, who said the 2020 election was “the most secure in American history” and that “there is no evidence that any voting system deleted or lost votes, changed votes, or was in any way compromised.”
He said his team used a reconnaissance tool to look at the Dominion voting network on November 3, confirming that the it was connected to the internet, and that “there were plenty of vulnerabilities” allowing hackers to “penetrate the system.”
Waldon said his team observed “packet traffic” that went from the U.S. to Frankfurt, Germany, but wasn’t sure if the traffic was coming from Dominion, or another automated voting system.
He explained that “packet traffic” are “bits of information that are sent over the internet protocol from one point to another.” An automated voting system company called Scytl is located in Germany.
“Your vote is not as secure as your Venmo account,” Waldron testified.
Waldron claimed that a Maricopa County official said the county did not validate signatures on 1.9 million ballots, creating a massive vote fraud potential.
He also testified that an anonymous witness from Pima County said votes were “embedded” in various precincts to help Biden win.
“There were approximately 35,000 fraud votes added to each Democratic candidates’ vote totals,” the individual wrote in letters to the Arizona legislature and the U.S. Department of Justice.
“In a meeting I was invited to by the Democrat party in Pima County, Arizona on September 10, 2020, no phones or recording devises were allowed, a presentation was given, including detailed plans to embed 35,000 in a ‘spread configured distribution’ to each Democrat candidate’s vote totals” in all local and federal races, the letter states.
Waldon said that the anonymous whistleblower’s claim coincided an anomaly that happened on election night when 143,000 votes were injected at 8:06 p.m., “in excess of what the machines could have processed.”
The colonel said that he wanted to have an opportunity to have to be a full forensic audit to further investigate the issue.
