Judge Kevin A. Elsenheimer of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 13th Circuit is scheduled to hold A hearing Monday morning to decide whether attorney Matthew DePerno can make public his investigation into the Dominion voting machines used in Michigan.
On Saturday afternoon, Mr. De Perno received word that the judges of the 13th Circuit court would hear his case, with a hearing scheduled for Monday morning.
But early Monday morning, Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel issued a special warning on Twitter, asking lawyers practicing in the state to swear to “uphold the Constitution of Michigan and the United States and not bring unfair and/or frivolous lawsuits or mislead the courts.”
The brave and patriotic lawyer De Perno told the us conservative website Gateway Pundit that he was curious about the timing of Nessel’s tweets. Why, he wondered, did the state attorney general use his power to intimidate lawyers?
De Perno stressed that nessel had violated her oath by not reporting wrongdoing that she knew of by other lawyers. “Nessel’s only goal was to intimidate,” he told Gateway Pundit.
Mr. De Perno called for preliminary findings to be released to the people of Antrim County, as well as president and Vice President Chad Wolf, acting secretary of Homeland Security, and Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliff.
On Dec. 4, Elsenheimer allowed De Perno, who is representing plaintiff William Bailey, and his team of IT specialists to conduct forensic research on 16 Dominion voting machines, tabulators, thumb drives, related software and a “master tabulator” for the November election in Antrim County, Mich.
On Friday, with preliminary findings in his possession, De Peno filed an emergency motion asking Judge Elsenheimer to lift the protective order that prevented him from sharing the results because it was a matter of “national security.”
In an emergency motion, Mr. De Perno reminded the judges that time was of the essence, as voters go to the polls on Dec. 14. The protective order for sharing forensic findings is intended to prevent plaintiffs from reverse-engineering Dominion’s software for malicious purposes. Mr De Perno said that his accusers and his IT team had no intention of doing so and that IT was now in the public interest to ensure the accuracy, integrity and security of the election process.
In the motion, Mr. De Perno said That Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson’s refusal to allow a forensics investigation of the Dominican software may have been because she feared violating her licensing agreement with Mr. Dominican. De Perno noted that antrim County’s agreement with Dominine was not signed, so it was impossible to verify that the contract was actually signed.
Bernard Kerik, a friend of Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani and a former New York Police Commissioner, also tweeted a question: “Why Is Michigan Secretary of State Benson intervening in the Antrim County, Michigan lawsuit to try to prevent public exposure of voter fraud and election fraud. What is she hiding?”
