The firm charged an upfront retainer fee for each state, one of which was $26,000, to breach voting machines made by Dominion and Election Systems & Software, according to The Washington Post.

And every executive at this firm who had any involvement in or knowledge of this, even if it involved nothing more than reading a summary email of the plan, should be immediately arrested and put on trial.

Every accusation...

Old man easily flimflammed by con men, news at 11!

That dumb F-er got the official totals for free and still hired Scams-r-Us to "break into" all of the things.

$26k?  that's a pretty low sum to sell out one's country and land yourself in jail.

If they just took his money and didn't actually pen...they'd only be guilty of a little fraud.

/ you've got to be REAL sure that your client is on the up-and-up before you agree to break into or pen test something

Because of course he did...

Breaching the machines isn't that hard. Doing it on any effective scale is. The machines aren't networked or on the internet and you would have to do it to every single machine. Thats going to take thousands of hacks where you physically walk up to a voting machine and do something that is obviously not allowed. I mean if the machine has a handy usb port in an easy to access place then its as simple as inserting a flash drive loaded with a program designed to hack the machine.

I'd be surprised if this firm has executives.

$26,000 retainer to commit election fraud? That sounds really cheap.

Guessing this "firm" is probably 10 people or less.

Because of course he did. Of course he did. And of all the "Ain't nutin' gun happens" that ever didn't happen this story is going to be the most nothings that ever happened. It's outright criminal but he has too much deniability for anything to come of it. First they would have to prove and prosecute against the company they hired, then prove that the guy hired them for that purpose, and then finally prove the link that TFG ordered his lackey to do it.

Unless those charges are already filed, it's another years long investigation just to get the company who actually did the thing, and if that were underway, I feel like we'd have heard about it by now.

Just add it to the list of things that if you or I did we'd be arrested almost immediately afterwards but Trump gets to do without any criminal charges at all.

Its not election fraud. Its hacking a single machine and accessing its data.  You can't hack every single machine in the state or even in a single voting site. Its just not practical.  These machines don't have a wireless connection and aren't connected to the internet. They probably use a flash drive to update the machine. If the designer has any kind of intelligence the machine will make all kinds of noise when its reset or in the process of updating to make it obvious someone is doing something they shouldn't.

Terrible and we know Russian election interference was worse than we first thought as well  But it it was all just a warm up to what they are going to try and pull in 2024.

The level of Election Fraud required to win an election in this day and age would be on such a massive scale that its going to be noticed immediately. In any kind of real close race when they look back at the votes they are going to discover it pretty quickly.

Is "We were doing so much criming we literally forgot we crimed this crime." a valid legal defense?

So the machines were actually hacked... just not by Hugo Chavez

Yeah, makes sense

GoldSpider: It was Cyber Ninjas, wasn't it?


If it was, you'll never know... they're Ninjas after all

Of course, knowing these bozos, they probably recorded themselves doing it on HD video

For 2024, the goal is to make it so state legislatures can just declare the election "suspect", and assign their own electors. And it will be perfectly legal, and defended by all the Lawful Stupid people here.

These the guys who went around to small towns and demanded to inspect voting tabulars on behalf of the government? With no authority and for some reason they actually got some. That news has been out for a while. I assume they took them apart poked them with multimeters while saying "enhance enhance visual basic."

Lock em up already

Several states already have the laws in place, and are working to get willing Secretaries of State elected to carry out the plan.  2022 mid-terms will be bad, but I have a feeling the 2024 presidential race will be a shiatshow of monumental proportion

I bet they were unsolicited bids at first...some cryptcel hakkker extroardinaire in some subreddit that imeric was opining about being robbed "I can so hack those machines for you bro...I'll do it for, oh, 'a jamillion dollars."  "How's about $26K?"  "Done.  Hey Dad...you'll love (me for) this..."
