During an interview over the weekend, Catherine Engelbrecht, the founder and president of True the Vote, claimed Georgia’s governor and secretary of state covered up clear evidence of election fraud, and of mounting a smear campaign against her organization.
Engelbrecht told War Room podcaster Steve Bannon on Saturday that she provided solid evidence of ballot trafficking to Governor Brian Kemp and Sec. of State Brad Raffensperger, but rather than act on it, they tried to discredit True the Vote’s work.
The vote monitoring organization used both geospatial cell phone data and video surveillance to capture illegal ballot trafficking activity in six states. True the Vote claims it was able to isolate 2,000 traffic harvesters, or “mules” who visited drop boxes with stacks of ballots late at night, used gloves to conceal their fingerprints, and took photos of themselves at the drop boxes to secure payment. The ballot harvesters were caught on video making these trips to multiple drop boxes in battleground states.
In the spring of 2021, while her team was still working on obtaining the video evidence, Engelbrecht said she presented the geospatial data her team had gathered in Georgia to Kemp and the Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI) “and they spent the next seven months covering it up.”
She said it wasn’t until former President Trump held a rally in Georgia, and “name checked” True the Vote that the GBI took action.
During that rally on September 25 in Perry, Georgia, Trump said: “a new investigation by True the Vote—very respected group—alleges a gigantic illegal ballot harvesting operation involving large numbers of people throughout the state.”
With all of these discrepancies and criminal acts, Governor Kemp and Raffensperger and your attorney general, who unfortunately has not decided to get involved other than looking at people that are questioning the votes, aren’t interested in the people that committed the voter fraud. They’re only interested in me and others, because I bring voter fraud to the forefront in order to save our nation from corrupt elections and to make sure that this never ever happens again.
Engelbrecht said that after the rally, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution published a letter from Vic Reynolds, the head of the GBI, “torching” True the Vote’s data. In his letter to True the Vote and Georgia GOP Chairman David Shafer, Reynolds wrote that the data was “curious” but didn’t “rise to the level of probable cause.”
Engelbrecht said she found his response to be “ridiculous” because True the Vote’s data—which he cited in his letter—clearly showed issues worthy of investigating further.
According to Engelbrecht, after Reynolds’ letter was publicized, Kemp’s cronies used the article to try to silence her team.
“We had Kemp’s Chief-of-Staff calling our contractors and getting them fired, or more specifically telling them that if they didn’t stop working with us, they would be fired from other state contracts,” she told Bannon.
Engelbrecht added that other Kemp’s allies disparaged True the Vote during meetings in the Georgia Senate in an attempt to discredit the group and delegitimize its work.
By late 2021, she said, the only path left for her was to appeal to Georgia’s Sec. of State Brad Raffensperger.
“So we submit in November of 2021 a full complaint” to Raffensperger’s office, Engelbrecht said, noting that by then they also had video evidence that showed clear illegalities.
“The very things [he] should be investigating, we lay it out on a silver platter,” she noted. “Nothing for six more months.”
Raffensperger’s office, she told Bannon, is now playing a “cheap game” by launching an investigation focused on a whistleblower’s “tabloidy” claims in an attempt to discredit the whistleblower, and by association, her group, “rather than look at the body of work that is there before them.”
Engelbrecht declared that very soon everything they discovered will be made public, and then “America can remind them to do their job.”
Filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza’s documentary “2,000 Mules,” highlighting True the Vote’s ballot trafficking evidence, will premiere at Mar-a-Lago on May 4th.
