FEC Chairman: If Sidney Powell Says There Was Rampant Voter Fraud, ‘I Believe Her’

BY TOM OZIMEK

Trey Trainor, head of the Federal Election Commission (FEC), said in a tweet Tuesday that he believes Trump campaign lawyer Sidney Powell’s claim of widespread election fraud.

Powell, a former federal prosecutor, recently claimed the president’s legal team has been receiving a deluge of evidence concerning voter fraud and other irregularities, telling Fox Business that she has enough proof to launch a widespread criminal investigation and that, “we’re getting ready to overturn election results in multiple states.”

While she declined to detail what evidence she may have in her possession, she insisted, “I don’t make comments without having the evidence to back it up.”

Trainor, in his tweet, called Powell “forthright and honest in every case she’s ever taken on,” adding that, “if she says there is rampant voter fraud in #Election2020, I believe her.”

Meanwhile, Trump campaign adviser Corey Lewandowski told “The Water Cooler” podcast that he, too, believes Powell’s claim of having evidence of systemic election fraud.

Lewandowski, speaking to podcast host David Brody, called Powell a “dogged professional attorney” and said that “if she says she has that evidence, I have no reason to doubt her at all.”

“It’s going to be time to start to present that evidence and present it to a court of law,” he added.

Powell’s claim centers on the notion that elections software switched “millions of votes” from President Donald Trump to Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden. She said a whistleblower has come forward alleging that the voting software was designed to “rig elections.”

“He saw it happen in other countries,” she said, apparently referring to election hardware and software by Dominion Voting Systems and Smartmatic, or perhaps other software and machines.

“They can stick a thumb drive in the [voting] machine, they can upload software to it even from the Internet … from Germany or Venezuela even,” Powell said, adding that operations “can watch votes in real-time” and “can shift votes in real-time,” or alleged bad actors can “remote access anything.”

“We’ve identified mathematically the exact algorithm they’ve used—and planned to use from the beginning” that allegedly switched votes to Biden, Powell said.

Dominion Voting Systems has denied several times to media outlets that its software and devices are not secure or that they were used to switch votes.

“Dominion Voting Systems categorically denies false assertions about vote switching issues with our voting systems,” the company said in a statement. “Vote deletion/switching assertions are completely false.”

“No credible reports or evidence of any software issues exist,” the company stated, adding, “Human errors related to reporting tabulated results have arisen in a few counties, including some using Dominion equipment, but appropriate procedural actions were made by the county to address these errors were made prior to the canvass process.”

A national coalition that includes the Department of Homeland Security’s Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) and the National Association of State Election Directors said there is a lack of evidence supporting the claim that voting software deleted or switched votes in the election.

“There is no evidence that any voting system deleted or lost votes, changed votes, or was in any way compromised,” a joint statement from the coalition said, and called the 2020 election “the most secure in American history.”

Dominion Voting Systems is a member of CISA’s Election Infrastructure Sector Coordinating Council, one of two entities that authored the statement put out by CISA.

Trainor, in earlier remarks to Newsmax, said he believes locations where poll watchers were not allowed “meaningful access” to observe vote tabulation could be involved in voter fraud.

“I do believe that there is voter fraud taking place in these places,” Trainor told the outlet. “Otherwise they would allow the observers to go in.”

The official referred to a case in Pennsylvania, where a court ordered them to allow the Trump campaign to have poll observers watch from six feet away, but the order was defied.

“They have not been allowed that meaningful access,” Trainor said, adding that if the law was broken in this regard, the election was “illegitimate.”

Wonder why the Trump campaign kicked her off the legal team?
Sidney Powell is practicing law on her own,” the statement read. “She is not a member of the Trump legal team. She is also not a lawyer for the President in his personal capacity.”

I heard she is not on the team because the ‘team’ can bring a civil suit but independently she can bring federal criminal charges. Not a lawyer so I do not know the difference of if true. I do know she has been after the CIA for a long time.

How about this: if / when Sydney produces credible evidence we all agree that Democrats are cheaters and can’t be trusted. Thank God for Trump! On the other hand, if Sydney can’t / won’t produce credible evidence we all agree that Trump is a lying piece of and God rightfully delivered the savior Biden to us. Let’s find out the Truth, as provided to us by the Lord Our God. Deal?

Clearly Sidney has nothing. If she had the goods she’d be blaring it across OANN, right? Looks like we all know the will of God now. He has spoken and definitively chosen Joe Biden to lead this good Christian nation to the Promised Land. Amen.

Sidney has always had a reputation for integrity. It was through her writings that I learned how US Justice lawyers ruined the entire Arthur Anderson company when only a tiny part of the company was involved in the Enron problems. It all showed the chicanery and evil of government lawyers who were only in it for hate, money, power, and self aggrandisement. Sidney is the opposite of these vultures- these evil men and women that want to run the USA into ruin.
She speaks very well. She is a throwback to citizens of the ages who demonstrated high intelligence and were honest. The US mainstream media is the opposite- a pack of pseudo journalists, infantile in manners and speech, and thorough liars who are so bad that one has to truly wonder about a satanic influence in the MM.
I listened to her most recent speech about how the Democrat Party cheated on a massive scale in our 2020 election. I was in the USMC in late 60s and I would follow and protect this woman no matter what the situation. The MM should be emulating Sidney but due to their sociopathic, very disturbed natures, the MM and their followers do the opposite.
Let God (or as many physicists refer to God as “the highest intelligence”}
sort it out some day and separate the good from the bad. These disturbed chronic liars and slanderers of the MM believe they are the greatest powers in the universe but they will get old and shriveled and we will see what they are handed at death. They will be confronted by the dirty, evil lives they led.

Actually lots of evidence already presented and much more on the way. The only questions are:
1. Is there enough?
2. Will they be permitted a fair hearing>

The moderator is now perpetuating the lies? Talk about grasping at straws.

The Republican-appointed judges have weighed in and made it very clear there wasn’t any fraud. The Crybaby has kicked Sidney off his Elite Strike Force, and Rudy the Idiot is probably still hanging out at the Four Seasons — yes, the one next to the dildo store.

I suggest, Citizen Reporter, that you get your “lots of evidence” to the loser of the election, and quickly. The states are certifying their electors. When you’ve given all your evidence to them let us all know, okay? We’ll be anxiously awaiting the glory and fame that awaits you for being the guy who finally came up with the goods.
