Ron Johnson, chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, speaks at the Committee’s election fraud hearing on Dec. 16.
Experts should be allowed to examine the Dominion voting machines and see if they are being invaded by malicious actors, said Ron Johnson, chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, Wednesday.
Senator Johnson held a hearing Wednesday before his committee on election irregularities. He opened the hearing by saying allegations of voter fraud had led a large percentage of Americans to view the outcome of the 2020 presidential election as illegitimate.
“The most difficult allegations to assess relate to vulnerabilities in voting machines and the software used.” He said.
“In order to effectively determine the extent to which voting machines are subject to malicious intrusion or other vulnerabilities, computer science experts must be given the opportunity to review these allegations.” “He added.
Two days earlier, a preliminary audit of Dominion Voting machines in Antrim County, Mich., concluded that the machines had been “intentionally and purposefully designed with inherent errors to create systematic fraud and influence election results.”
“The Dominion Voting machine error rate allowed by the FEDERAL Election Commission is only one in 250,000, and we found that the Dominion Voting machine error rate is 68.05%,” says Allied Security Operations Group in its December 14 report on Dominion Voting machines in Anterem County, Mich. This shows that there was a major and fatal error in the security and integrity of the election.”
Dominion and Michigan state election officials say the report is based on false conclusions.
Wednesday’s Senate hearing featured six witnesses, including two lawyers from Trump‘s team, former federal attorney General Kenneth Starr, and Chris Krebs, the former head of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure security division at the Department of Homeland Security.
Gary Peters, a Democratic senator, accused Mr Johnson of holding the hearing before the Homeland security committee, saying that Republicans were undermining the will of the people and that there was no evidence that the election had been stolen.
“I don’t think there’s any danger in evaluating information and having legitimate congressional oversight,” Johnson said in response to Peters’ rebuke. “Narrowness is a real problem with a lot of the issues we face today.”
