A major lawsuit has been filed by Fulton County, Pennsylvania against Dominion Voting Systems on Wednesday morning.
The lawsuit focuses on violations of their contract, certification issues, connectivity issues, and alleged foreign databases and scripts found on the systems. Some of the claims are on par with the “debunked” rumors associated with the “most secure election ever” claims, including internet connectivity, outdated security protections, remote accessibility, and random USBs inserted.
Much of the evidence disclosed is the result of an analysis and report issued by Erick Speckin, who The Gateway Pundit reported on Speckin’s research in another PA county earlier this week.
From the lawsuit:
46. On or after November 2020, Fulton County became aware of severe
anomalies in the Dominion Voting Systems due to the inaccuracy and/or inability
to reconcile voter data with votes actually cast and counted, i.e., tabulated, by the
System in Fulton County
47. On or after November 2020, Fulton County became aware of certain
factors and aspects of the Dominion Voting Systems that did not meet the
“conditions” for certification set forth in the January 2019 / February 2019
49. In addition, Fulton County was informed of additional anomalies and
problems in Dominion’s “voting” systems via an expert report written by J. Alex
Halderman in July 2021. (EXHIBIT C, the Halderman Declaration, September
50. In his declaration, Halderman described numerous security
vulnerabilities in Dominion’s ICX software, including flaws that would allow
attackers to install malicious software on the ICX, either with temporary or
physical access (such as that of voters in polling places) or remotely from election
management systems. EXHIBIT C
52. At the time of that report, the author described that these
vulnerabilities still existed, and could be mitigated, but that such mitigation would
“take months for Dominion to assess the problems, develop responsive software
updates, test them, obtain any necessary approvals from the EAC and state-level
certification authorities, and distribute the new software….”
54. The report also notes that the ICX is set to be used in 2022 in at least
parts of 16 states, including Pennsylvania, with these vulnerabilities and faults
still in place
c. There were non-certified database tools installed on the Dominion
d. There were changes made to EMS three weeks before the 2020
e. There was a lack of commonwealth L&A inspections of the
Dominion Voting Systems.
66. …on September 15, 2022, a commissioned report revealed several deficiencies and the
absence of information and data that directly implicated and contradicted the
contractual terms, conditions, promises, and warranties provided to Fulton
County by Dominion in the Agreement and the conditions required for
certification in the Dominion Certification Report.
69. The September Report showed that external USB hard drives had been
inserted in the machines on several occasions, and that there is no known list of
approved external drives that could have been or were used or inserted into the
machines. In this regard, the report concluded that there was no
way to determine whether and to what extent these unauthorized drives
compromised the data or the system.
70. The September Report further concluded that there had been
“substantial changes” to the drives as seen with the inclusion of over 900 .dll files
and links created since the date of installation of the Dominion software and these
pathways constituted a security breach due to the introduction of an unauthorized
“script” into the Dominion voting systems used in Fulton County.
71. The September Report found that a “python script” had been installed
after the certification date of the system” and not only should such a script not
have been added to the system, but “[t]his python script can exploit and create
any number of vulnerabilities including, external access to the system, data export
of the tabulations, or introduction of other metrics not part of or allowed by the
certification process.” Id., ¶ 5. Among other findings, this constituted a direct
violation of and failure of the conditions required for certification in the
Dominion Certification Report,
72. Each of the drives are “interconnected in a system to one another” and
that this would be required to share data and counts between devices. Id., ¶ 6.
However, “[b]ecause of this networking, unauthorized access [to] any one device,
allowed unauthorized access to any device connected to the network of devices.”
Id. Among other findings, this constituted a direct violation of and failure of the
conditions required for certification in the Dominion Certification Report
73. The September Report further determined that “[a]n external IP
address that is associated with Canada is found on the Adjudication01
[workstation]” and “[t]his shows that at least one of the network devices has
connected to an external device on an external network” and that this was the
same device that the post-certification python script was found on. Id., ¶ 7.
Among other findings, this constituted a direct violation of and failure of the
conditions required for certification in the Dominion Certification Report, see
EXHIBIT B, pp. 40-50, ¶ C.
74. The log files for the Adjudication device showed an IP address of
188.8.131.52, which derives from a location in Quebec, Canada and that this
revealed a serious issue to be connected remotely to a Canadian system
75. The machines and devices only had Windows Defender dating to July
2016 and that no other updates had been made. The report concluded
that “viruses or malicious software” created after that date would not be combated
by the systems without proper updates.
76. The September Report findings confirmed that many of the
“conditions” in the certification report which were required to be met for
certification were not met and were not present before, during and after the
November 2020 election and up to the present. Among other findings, this
constituted a direct violation of and failure of the conditions required for
certification in the Dominion Certification Report
More to come as this lawsuit progresses…
