Appearing on Fox News, a Dominion Voting Systems spokesperson issued a statement addressing the many conspiracy theories that have been floating around about the company since the election and said it was “not physically possible” for its machines to change voter’s selection.
The spokesman, Michael Steel, appeared on “America’s News HQ,” and said, “This is a nonpartisan American company. It is not physically possible for our machines to switch votes from one candidate to the other.”
“This is a nonpartisan American company. It is not physically possible for our machines to switch votes from one candidate to the other.”
He added, “Let’s be very clear, our election system is run by local elected officials and nonpartisan poll watchers. We simply provide a tool to count the ballots and to print and count ballots. There is no way such a massive fraud could have taken place and there are no connections between our company and Venezuela, Germany, Barcelona, Kathmandu, whatever the latest conspiracy theory is.” Michael Steel, Dominion Voting Systems
Trump campaign attorneys have alleged multiple baseless claims of voter fraud including the allegations that Dominion Voting Systems were connected to Venezuela.
When Fox News’s Eric Shawn asked how Steel was sure that the voting machines were secure, Steel said,
“When a voter votes on a Dominion machine, they fill out their ballot on the touchscreen, they are given a printed copy which they then give to a local election official for safekeeping.”
“If any electronic interference had taken place, the tally reported electronically would not match the printed ballots… And in every case where we’ve looked at in Georgia, all across the country, the printed ballots, the gold standard in election security, has matched the electronic tally.”
President Trump certainly hasn’t helped the situation by constantly sharing conspiracy theories about the company with zero evidence- including the claims that the company switched votes from him to Biden.
Trump recently fired top U.S. cybersecurity official Christopher Krebs, who fired back about the allegations against Dominion, tweeting, “On allegations that election systems were manipulated, 59 election security experts all agree, ‘in every case of which we are aware, these claims either have been unsubstantiated or are technically incoherent.’ ”
