Attorney Matthew DePerno told Newsmax TV on Monday that he hopes an audit report of vote tabulating machines that purports to have found a 68% error rate in Antrim County, Michigan, will help President Donald Trump continue to contest election results in the state and across the country.
The audit was conducted by Allied Security Operations Group, a group backed by the Trump campaign, and does not confirm that Dominion engaged in any wrongdoing or acted improperly.
“This is not over,” DePerno said on “Greg Kelly Reports.” “There are still options for the president, and we hope that we’ve given him something to on here, based on our investigation, because if this happened in Antrim County, there are 48 other counties in Michigan that use the same machines, and there’s hundreds of counties across the country that also use them.”
DePerno was the attorney who filed suit for an Antrim County man against local election officials and was allowed to have a cybersecurity firm conduct a forensic audit of the machines and results. The report was produced by Allied Operations Group with the support of the Trump campaign.
The report and DePerno claim that the Dominion software is designed to create a high percentage of errors which then must be “adjudicated” – a process in which the ballot is transferred to a computer screen and an operator manually enters the ballot choices.
DePerno also said that changes can be made to batches of ballots, but the individual who conducted the audit, Russell James Ramsland Jr., could not determine where the ballots were transferred to be “adjudicated.”
Dominion Voting Systems has dismissed the audit report, claiming the company is the subject of a "continuing malicious and widespread disinformation campaign" to undermine confidence in the Nov. 3 election and has noted that all “Dominion machines underwent preliminary and public logic and accuracy testing before the election.”
In a statement posted to Dominion’s website, the company harshly criticized the report:
“This week, Russ Ramsland's Allied Security Operations Group—a biased, non-independent organization—released a severely flawed ‘forensic audit report’ that further contributes to the continuing malicious and widespread disinformation campaign aimed at eroding confidence in the integrity of the 2020 presidential election. Ramsland is a notorious conspiracy theorist, and gave a presentation in 2018 in which he claimed the "Deep State" was formed when the Muslim Brotherhood, President George H.W. Bush's father, leftists, and George Soros came together in Nazi Germany in the 1930s—although Soros was born in 1930. He also falsely claimed in an affidavit that in Detroit, voter turnout was 139.29% and that turnout in North Muskegon was an eye-popping 781.97%; in reality, the turnout in those places was 50.88% and 78.11%, respectively. His group was not hired by any court or government body, but instead by plaintiffs that have submitted sham "evidence" across the country. These cases have been roundly debunked in courts from coast-to-coast. U.S. Election Assistance Commission-sanctioned, third-party, independent test labs are best positioned to conduct fair, non-partisan analyses. The claims made in the report are technologically impossible. Dominion machines did not—and could not have—"switched" or enabled the "switching" of any votes. A hand count of the paper ballots as well as a review by any independent, federally accredited Voting System Test Laboratory (VSTL) will confirm this fact.”
