(JustPatriots.com)- Last Monday, Dominion Voting Systems filed paperwork in a Pennsylvania court asking that any inspection of its voting machines as part of the Pennsylvania lawmakers’ “forensic investigation” into the 2020 election be conducted by a federally-accredited lab.
Dominion is asking the court to order that the inspection of their machines either be done by a federally-accredited voting system test lab or by the national laboratory used by the Department of Homeland Security’s Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency.
In December, a Commonwealth Court allowed the inspection of the Dominion voting machines in Pennsylvania’s Fulton County. The inspection was initially scheduled for December 22, but Democrat Attorney General Josh Shapiro and Democrat Secretary of the Commonwealth Veronica Degraffenreid sued to block it, but they lost.
The judge ruled the investigation must go forward, but he delayed it until January 10 to give both sides time to determine the formal protocol for the inspection.
According to a lawyer representing Fulton County, the Republican senator in charge of the forensic investigation wants to determine if the county’s voting system was the same equipment that was certified by the state for use in the 2020 election.
However, the papers Dominion filed in court is not an effort to block the inspection; Dominion simply wants the inspection to be done by a lab that is accredited to conduct it. It’s a perfectly reasonable request.
But of course, not everybody thinks it is.
This past week, The Gateway Pundit alleged that Dominion asking that an accredited lab conduct the inspection is somehow proof that Dominion is “panicking.”
The Gateway Pundit alleges that the reason Dominion is “panicking” is because their voting machines “may not” have been “hardened” to prevent system intrusion and hacking.
Note the use of the word “may.” The Gateway Pundit does not provide evidence that the voting machines were vulnerable to hacking. Instead, it simply says that “may” be the case.
In other words, it may not be the case.
The Gateway Pundit also claims that Dominion is trying to “prevent” an inspection of its machines. But it isn’t trying to “prevent” it; it’s asking that the inspection be conducted by an accredited lab.
