News now documents show that the Dominion voting system submitted a bid to the city of Philadelphia in 2018 to be considered as their contractor for voting machines, those same documents reveal very little about the company’s foreign connections. When asked by the city to list any foreign ownership or investors in either the parent company and or its subsidiaries, Dominion had something to say, but nothing to show.
The section you see there on your screen is entirely redacted, blacked out because Dominion ultimately was denied the contract. In just three months before Dominion’s bid, President Trump signed an executive order against foreign interference in our elections. In that order, President Trump wrote, quote, The assessment shall identify to the maximum extent ascertainable the nature of any foreign intervention, interference, and any methods employed to execute it. The persons involved and the foreign government or governments that authorize, directed, sponsored, or supported it.
The director of National Intelligence shall deliver this assessment and appropriate supporting information to the president. Question is, was the president ever informed of this attempted bid by a company with foreign ties and why are they being so secretive? Joining us now by phone, Sidney Powell, a member of President Trump’s legal team. She is also General Michael Flynn’s attorney, former federal prosecutor, best selling author, one of the country’s most prominent appellate attorneys. Sidney. Good to have you with us.
Dominion voting system seems to be figuring larger and larger in the interest of your your legal team. And what is the latest?
Oh, definitely, Lou. I’ve just gotten some stunning evidence from a firsthand witness, a high ranking military officer who was present when Smartmatic was designed in a way that I’m going to just read you some of these statements if you don’t mind. So I get them exactly right from the affidavit designed in a way that the system could change the vote of each voter without being detected. He wanted the software itself to function in such a manner that if the voter were to place their thumbprint or fingerprint on a scanner and the thumbprint would be tied to a record of the voter’s name and identity as having voted.
But that voter would not be tracked to the changed vote. He made it clear that the system would have to be set up, but not leave any evidence of the changed vote for a specific voter and that there would be no evidence to show and nothing to contradict that the name or the fingerprint or thumbprint was going with a changed vote. Smartmatic agreed to create such a system and produce the software and hardware that accomplished the result for President Chavez. After the Smartmatic electrical managed electoral management system was put in place, he closely observed several elections where the results were manipulated using the Smartmatic software one such election.
It was December 2006 when Chavez was running against Roselyn Chavez won with a landslide over at the margin of nearly six million votes for Chavez versus three point seven million for results. In 2013, he witnessed another Venezuelan national election where the Smartmatic management system was used to manipulate and change the results for Chavez. And it goes on and on. He was in the control room where multiple digital display screens were shown for results and voting. The actual voting results were fed into that room and onto the plays over an Internet feed, which was connected to a sophisticated computer system created by Smartmatic.
People in that room were able to see in real-time whether the vote that came through the electronic voting system was in their favor or against them. If one looked at any particular screen that could determine that the vote from any specific area or as the national total was going to be against either candidate, persons controlling the vote tabulation computer had the ability to change the reporting of votes by moving votes from one candidate to another, by using the Smartmatic software and Smartmatic, the relational Smartmatic in Sydney.
Yes. And Smartmatic, the chairman is ADM Effinger, who is also a transition team. That’s an extraordinary situation as well, isn’t it?
Yes, it is. So here’s the other kicker. When the Smartmatic machines are when somebody is losing, like, for example, when Maduro and his supporters realized the size of the other guy’s lead, they were worried that they were in crisis mode and would lose the election. The Smartmatic, the machines used for voting in each state were connected to the Internet, reported their information. Over the Internet to the Karakus control center, real-time the decision was made to reset the entire system, Montero’s and his supporters ordered the network controllers to take the Internet itself offline and practically all parts in Venezuela to change the result.
It’s like the voting operators approximately two hours to make the adjustments in the vote from Radonski to Maduro. Then when they turned the Internet back on and the online reporting was up and running again, they checked each screen, state by state, to be certain they could see each vote was changed in favor of Maduro.
So you tweeted earlier today about CIA and its association. What have you discovered there?
Well, other than the fact there’s no way all this was happening over in and around the world without the CIA knowing about it, I mean, that’s just logic. It’s been the affidavit also explains it’s been used to change election results all over the world. And it’s all Venezuelan and Cuban and essentially communist money that’s been doing this. It’s a foreign-owned company. As you mentioned earlier, the president of it is Mr. Northanger, who is on by very presumptuous and immediately failing transition team.
And people have been reporting this to our government for several years, including Democrats. And nobody’s done a damn thing about it. I can’t even express how furious I am over this. Well, I share your fury and frustration, but I do have some news to break here at this moment, I have now received word from a highly reliable source that the FBI does have an investigative team that is now looking into this election. Now what that means beyond that, but at least it’s confirmation that they are investigating.
And we’ll see what moves because there had been no indication that indeed publicly that they were involved.
They are now to that point, I just like to show if we could put up the full screen under what their authorities are when we talk about these state-run elections, even though they’re federal elections for at least a sizable number of the candidates, as you see there, the ballot includes one or more federal candidates on election, a polling place official who took action. Your thoughts?
Well, my other thought is that as soon as the Smartmatic system changed the votes that they wanted for their desired candidate, by the time they finished, they achieve a convincing but narrow victory of a certain number of votes they want for their candidate, this person saw. But what is own experience, exactly? What was happening there? What’s happening here?
It’s it is a deeply, deeply troubling, troubling election. As I said earlier, the worst in this country’s history, bar none.
And we have seen official official investigative and Justice Department officials slow to move.
And it is infuriating to everyone I know, President, full blindness.
They have adopted a position of willful blindness to the massive corruption across the country. And the Smartmatic software is in the DNA of every vote tabulation company software into the system. Yes.
And it is more than just a willful blindness. This is people trying to blind as to what is going on. We don’t even know who the hell really owns these companies, at least most of them. That’s got to change. And we’ve got to find out exactly what’s going on. And thank God we’ve got a president who will stay in the fight all the way through until we get those answers. Sidney Powell, thanks so much.
