ATLANTA, Georgia – Ahead of the emergency hearing, famed attorney Lin Wood shared affidavits indicating a massive, layered orchestration of voter fraud. At the time of publication, Wood attached 17 affidavits.
One of the key affidavits came from a purported aid of former Venezuela dictator Hugo Chavez.
The redacted filing tells the story of an ex-military, ex-security guard for Chavez who witnessed how the dictator “creat[ed] and operat[ed]” a “sophisticated electronic voting system that permitted the leaders of the Venezuelan government to manipulate the tabulation of votes.” The witness stated that they were involved directly in the creation of Smartmatic – a voting software that the witness claimed is a direct ancestor of Dominion Voting Systems.
“I want to alert the public and let the world know the truth about the corruption, manipulation, and lies being committed by a conspiracy of people and companies intent upon betraying the honest people of the United States and their legally constituted institutions and fundamental rights as citizens. This conspiracy began more than a decade ago in Venezuela and had spread to countries all over the world. It is a conspiracy to wrongfully gain and keep power and wealth. It involves political leaders, powerful companies, and other persons whose purpose is to gain and keep power by changing the free will of the people and subverting the proper course of governing.”
Multiple workers’ affidavits reported that they received absentee ballot boxes without any markings to indicate where they come from or who handled them.
One witness reported that several batches of ballots were in “pristine” condition, and had an entirely different texture and feel to them.
“Most of the ballots had already been handled; they had been written on by people, and the edges were worn. They showed obvious use. However, one batch stood out. It was pristine. There was a difference in texture of the paper – it was [as] if they were intended for absentee use but had not been used for that purposes. There was a difference in the feel. These different ballots included a slight depressed pre-fold so they could be easily folded and unfolded for use in the scanning machines. There were no markings on the ballots to show where they had come from, or where they had been processed. These stood out. In my 20 years’ of experience in handling ballots, I observed that the markings for the candidates on these ballots were unusually uniform, perhaps even with a ballot-marking device. By my estimate in observing these ballots, approximately 98 percent constituted votes for Joseph Biden. I only observed two of these ballots as votes for President Donald J. Trump.”
Several other counters submitted affidavits as well. They offered similar testimonies: that the recount was disorganized, and that there were pristine ballots that looked as though they were filled out by machines.
One affidavit from a monitor reported that the hand recount was chaotic. She reported witnessing inconsistent counting methods, incorrectly tallied piles of ballots, counters forgetting the numbers of ballots each candidate received but putting numbers down regardless, absence of independent verification or monitors when inputting the numbers from batch sheets, ballots left unattended while workers left to eat. She reported that there was no way of seeing if the correct candidate was being put in the correct pile, because they were doing a verbal count.
“There had been no meaningful way to review or audit any activity,” the witness stated.
Another monitor’s affidavit concurred: it wasn’t possible to determine if the count was accurate and proper. That witness was prohibited from observing the count because, as she was told, there were too many volunteers on the floor. However, the witness testified that there were few observers walking around the counters.
Other affidavits came from data experts who affirmed that there were statistical irregularities with the reported votes.
During a press conference on Thursday, President Donald Trump’s legal team referenced Wood’s case and affidavits as evidence of fraud.
In response, the Democratic Party of Georgia filed their own affidavits on the day of the emergency hearing. They submitted 13 affidavits testifying that the count was conducted accurately.
On Thursday evening, the Georgia hand recount finished and appears to affirm Democratic candidate Joe Biden’s lead over President Donald Trump.
