In April 2018, The New York Times published a video of a University of Michigan computer scientist, J. Alex Halderman, showing a group of students how easy it is to rig a Dominion Voting Machine. The name of the video is “I Hacked an Election. So Can the Russians.” A caption next to the title read, “It’s time America’s leaders got serious about voting security.”
At the time, Democrats were focused on Robert Mueller’s Special Counsel investigation and were anxiously waiting for his team to find evidence that President Trump had colluded with the Russians to win the 2016 election.
Now silent, back in 2019 Senators Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), Amy Klobuchar (D-MN), and Ron Wyden (D-OR), were upset with the performance of the machines and software provided by Dominion Voting Systems and wrote a letter of complaint to the founders and co-CEOs of Dominion’s parent company, H.I.G. Capital, Inc demanding answers.
Back then, they were angry that Dominion software had flipped votes cast for one candidate to another. They were arguing that votes were flipped from their preferred candidate to that candidate’s opponent.
And because he is always smart about these things, Donald Trump – back when he was a TV celebrity, tweeted this:
More reports of voting machines switching Romney votes to Obama. Pay close attention to the machines, don’t let your vote be stolen— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 6, 2012
