We’ll start here:
Sidney Powell, one of 18 co-defendants in former President Donald Trump’s election interference case in Georgia, has taken a plea deal in which she has agreed to testify in the case.
is pleading guilty to six misdemeanor charges, according to the
agreement read in court Thursday. She will get 12 months of probation
for each count, as well as a $6,000 fine.
part of the agreement, Powell must “testify truthfully about any
co-defendants” involved in the case and “provide all documents to the
district attorney’s office” relevant to their case against the other
co-defendants, according to Fulton County Judge Scott McAfee.
Though the original seven felony charges against Powell focused only on
her role in a breach of election equipment in a Coffee County, Ga.,
elections office that occurred on Jan. 7, 2021, the terms of Powell’s
plea require her to turn over any evidence or documents requested by the
district attorney’s investigators and to testify truthfully at any
related trials in the broader racketeering case.
And so why should someone ask Pennsylvania State Senator Doug Mastriano about this?
This is why:
A nonprofit organization run by
former Trump campaign attorney Sidney Powell, who filed a series of
lawsuits last year attempting to overturn presidential election results
in Arizona and other states, contracted the company that’s now counting
2.1 million ballots from Maricopa County to conduct an election audit in
a rural Pennsylvania county, according to records obtained by the Arizona Mirror.
Wake Technology Services, Inc.,
co-founder Gene Kern and Fulton County’s elections director, IT director
and one member of the three-person election board signed a document
on Dec. 31 stating that Kern was requesting to check the county’s
voting machines and mail-in ballots from the general election. At the
bottom of the typed document are handwritten notes stating that
Pennsylvania state Sen. Doug Mastriano set up the audit and that Wake
TSI is contracted with Defending the Republic, Powell’s 501(c)(4)
nonprofit organization. County clerk Lisa Mellott-McConahy said the
county’s elections director, Patti Hess, identified the handwriting as
belonging to Kern. [Bold Italics added.]
Take a look:
Fulton County, Pennsylvania.
Take a look at what happened in Fulton County – as per the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, Middle District:
The Pennsylvania Secretary of the Commonwealth decertified certain
voting equipment that Fulton County acquired from Dominion Voting
Systems, Inc. (“Dominion”) in 2019 and used in the 2020 general
election. The Secretary decertified the voting equipment after learning
that, following the 2020 election, Fulton County had allowed Wake
Technology Services, Inc. (“Wake TSI”), to perform a probing inspection
of that equipment as well as the software and data contained therein.
The Secretary maintained that Wake TSI’s inspection had compromised the
integrity of the equipment. Fulton County and the other named
Petitioner-Appellees petitioned in the Commonwealth Court’s original
jurisdiction to challenge the Secretary’s decertification authority
generally and as applied in this case. During the pleading stage, the
Secretary learned that Fulton County intended to allow another entity,
Envoy Sage, LLC, to inspect the allegedly compromised equipment. The
Secretary sought a protective order from the Commonwealth Court barring
that inspection and any other third-party inspection during the
litigation. The court denied relief. The Secretary appealed that ruling
to the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, which entered a temporary order on
January 27, 2022, to prevent the inspection and to preserve the status
quo during the Court’s review of the Secretary’s appeal. Months
later—and with no public consideration, official proceedings, or notice
to the courts or other parties to this litigation—the County allowed yet
another party, Speckin Forensics, LLC to inspect the voting equipment
and electronic evidence at issue in this litigation. Upon learning of
this alleged violation of the temporary order, the Secretary filed an
“Application for an Order Holding [the County] in Contempt and Imposing
Sanctions.” The Supreme Court found Fulton County willfully violated the
Supreme Court’s order. The Court found Fulton County and its various
attorneys engaged in a “sustained, deliberate pattern of dilatory,
obdurate, and vexatious conduct and have acted in bad faith throughout
these sanction proceedings.” Taken as a whole, that behavior prompted
the Court to sanction both the County and the County Attorney.
Um, that’s bad, right?
Can someone please ask Doug Mastriano what he knows about Sidney Powell, Wake Technology and the Fulton County voting machines?
