Crucial Logs Missing From Some Michigan Dominion Voting Machines:
Forensics Report
Monday, Dec 14, 2020

The Epoch Times' Ivan Pentchokov reports that crucial security and
adjudication logs are missing from Dominion Voting Systems machines
from Michigan’s Antrim County, according to a forensics report (pdf)
released on Dec. 14 in compliance with a court order.

    “Significantly, the computer system shows vote adjudication logs
for prior years; but all adjudication log entries for the 2020
election cycle are missing. The adjudication process is the simplest
way to manually manipulate votes. The lack of records prevents any
form of audit accountability, and their conspicuous absence is
extremely suspicious since the files exist for previous years using
the same software,” the report, authored by Russell Ramsland, states.

    “We must conclude that the 2020 election cycle records have been
manually removed.”

The absence of the adjudication logs is particularly alarming because
the forensic exam found that the voting machines rejected an
extraordinary number of ballots for adjudication, a manual process in
which election workers determine the ultimate outcome for each ballot.

The office of Michigan’s Democrat Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson,
Dominion, and a spokesman for Antrim County didn’t respond to requests
for comment.

As Sara Carter of detailed earlier, a Michigan judge
ordered the public release Monday of a report submitted by lawyers
supporting President Donald Trump and the election fraud allegations
they say will reveal serious concerns that the computer machines used
in the voting in Antrim County were compromised. The forensic report
allegedly contains data that will reveal that the computer systems
used to vote in the county were not secure and had foreign components
that made them susceptible to manipulation and or fraud, according to
those directly familiar with the case.

Michigan’s Assistant Attorney General Erik Grill, representing
Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson, immediately shot back
against the release of the report, which President Donald Trump
supporters say raises significant questions of voter fraud and
implications to the U.S. national security.

He suggested that the report being released is “inaccurate, incomplete
and misleading,” according to the Detroit News.

    “There’s no reason to hide,” said Grill, during a virtual court
hearing Monday morning.

    “There is nothing to hide.”

However, lawyers and computer experts working to expose what they say
is a serious threat to U.S. security and infrastructure say the report
will reveal the irregularities in the data and external foreign
interference in the system.

The legal team “submitted the forensics report to the Judge (Sunday)
at 8:30 a.m. per the Judge’s request,” stated a source familiar with
the report.

According to sources, who spoke to me this weekend the forensic report
of the computer system reveals that there are serious national
security implications to the evidence discovered because “the election
system is categorized as critical infrastructure, this is a threat to,
it is a national security concern.”

The lawsuit was initiated by Antrim County resident William Bailey.
Circuit Judge Kevin Elsenheimer, a former Republican lawmaker, allowed
Allied Securities Operation Group and Bailey to take forensic images
of the county’s 22 tabulators and review other election-related
material to ensure election integrity.

The forensic analysis has been under protective order. It could not be
released prior to the Judge’s decision Monday, when Elsenheimer
ordered the release with some redactions.

Antrim County has roughly 23,000 residents and the discovery that
roughly 6,000 votes cast using the Dominion Voting Systems that should
have gone to President Donald Trump went to Joe Biden without
explanation triggered the ongoing investigation by Trump supporters.

The bizarre explanation that a failure to update voting software led
to Joe Biden initially receiving those thousands of votes ahead of
Trump in the Republican-leaning county wasn’t accepted by the majority
of Trump supporters, nor many of the Michigan GOP

If the forensic report is accurate on the irregularities, as well as
other issues of alleged fraud regarding the Dominion Voting Systems
used in XX states across the country, it may snowball to other state
legislatures requesting audits of their systems as well.
