2022 will not be a good year for those who are hoping Trump will get them a win.

 

New York state investigation into Trump is now a criminal probe

The probe is “no longer purely civil in nature,” a spokesperson for state Attorney General Letitia James confirmed to POLITICO.

The New York state attorney general’s examination of the Trump Organization is now also a criminal investigation, a spokesperson for the attorney general said on Tuesday night.

The investigation is “no longer purely civil in nature,” Fabien Levy, the spokesperson for New York Attorney General Letitia James, confirmed to POLITICO by email. “We are now actively investigating the Trump Organization in a criminal capacity, along with the Manhattan D.A. We have no additional comment at this time.”CNN was the first to report the news on Tuesday night.

James’ office is undertaking a sweeping probe of former President Donald Trump and his family over allegedly misstating property values to get tax benefits. In February, the Supreme Court paved the way for Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr.’s team to get eight years of Trump’s tax returns and financial records as a part of Vance’s criminal probe into potential tax, insurance and bank fraud.

The new development appears to expand the potential liability for Trump, who is now facing separate criminal probes from prosecutors in New York, and also suggests collaboration in the two investigations.

James’ inquiry started in 2019 after former Trump attorney Michael Cohen said in a congressional hearing that Trump had inflated the value of assets to banks to get better loans and insurance, while undervaluing them to cut his tax liability. Vance's investigation has also appeared to be focused on allegations from Cohen, who has also claimed Trump committed fraud while dealing with insurance companies, which Trump and the Trump Organization have denied.

James' office has focused on Trump properties that include the Trump International Hotel and Tower in Chicago and 40 Wall Street in New York City.

James pledged to hold Trump accountable, and she spearheaded or joined into dozens of efforts to challenge the Trump administration on a number of issues when Trump was in office. Last fall, a judge ordered the former president’s son Eric Trump to answer questions under oath as part of the investigation.

“The court’s order today makes clear that no one is above the law, not even an organization or an individual with the name Trump,” James said in a statement at the time.

Jen Weisselberg, former daughter-in-law of Allen Weisselberg, chief financial officer of the Trump Organization, has said she is cooperating with both probes.

Both James and Vance are Democrats. Trump has previously called the investigations a politically motivated "witch hunt."

Vance is stepping down Dec. 31, as he said in March that he won't be running for reelection. Vance's probe has also scrutinized possible hush-money payments to women for Trump.

A spokesperson for Vance’s office declined to comment Tuesday night.

The New York Times has reported that Trump has paid little in taxes, including just $750 in federal taxes in 2017, a report which Trump called “fake news.” Their reporting also indicated he has gotten some hefty refunds.

Law enforcement officials in Florida have been preparing for the scenario in which Vance could potentially indict Trump while he’s at his Mar-a-Lago club in Florida, sources have previously told POLITICO.

Potential extradition of Trump could be complicated, as Florida law allows Gov. Ron DeSantis, a prominent Trump ally, the ability to step in and investigate if anyone indicted “ought to be surrendered” for an out-of-state indictment. If Trump were at his golf club in Bedminster, N.J., when indicted, it would likely be different, as the state has laws similar to Florida’s on extradition but also has a Democratic governor.

Representatives for Trump and the Trump Organization did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

HaHa, what a circle jerk! Arizona auditors admit they have the database. It was not deleted. 

Auditors hired by the Arizona state Senate backtracked Tuesday from claims that a key database had been deleted from Maricopa County's elections servers -- admitting in a hearing held by the Senate Republicans overseeing the audit that the data is intact and they'd been looking the wrong way.

A typical outcome from any entity that does not know how to operate an audit.

It appears one purpose of this "audit" is to intermitantly generate "little leaks of incomplete findings of controversy" that attempt to sustain a "position" held by some.

It seems to be working.

Then it seems to be failing.

Waiting for Dominion et al to sue a sitting congresswoman. 

Meanwhile, if they've nothing to hide, why did the Entire election supervisors dept refuse to be interviewed by the state Senate? Why did they immediately file lawsuits to evade the subpoenas? Why have they "lawyered up" since the beginning, and why are those 60-100 lawyers all being paid for by the DNC if these supervisors are Republicans? Why did they refuse to allow the audit to occur in place and demand that everything be moved? Why did they push the process back as far as possible, allowing plenty of time for things to be changed? Why don't they have the admin passwords to the equipment they bought and paid for with taxpayer funds? 

What innocent person does that?

Good grief, get a grip. Nothing was deleted, nothing was overwritten. The audit morons just didn't know what they were doing. They found the data once the county told them how they had screwed up: https://www.maricopa.gov/DocumentCenter/View/68971/Final-Technical-Response-Letter-with-Exhibits-5172021

Item 3: Election Management System Databases Election Officials from the Elections Department, the Recorder’s Office IT Team along with assistance from subject matter experts from the Office of Enterprise Technology reviewed the screenshot provided in Senate President Fann’s letter and the incorrect assumption that the entirety of the database directory from the Drive and the main database for the election had been spoiled or deleted. The analysis below confirmed that the original database folder on the “EMSPrimary” server was not deleted or otherwise tampered with during packaging and delivery to fulfill the Arizona Senate’s subpoena.

1. Significance of April 12, 2021 and Drive Directory Files On April 12, 2021, the Recorder Office’s IT Team, shut down the server to be packed up and made ready for delivery to the Senate. At no point was any data deleted when shutting down the server and packing up the equipment. The screenshot shows the program used by the Senate was R-Studio Data Recovery Technician. It shows a modified date of 4/12/2021 (see Image 4 and Exhibit D) which corresponds to when the server was shut down. Microsoft SQL (MSSQL) Services will often change the “metadata” (additional data on files such as creation date, access date, modified date, owner, etc) on MSSQL database files based on MSSQL actions that are needed to run the databases. The modified dates on the files are identical for all files included in the screenshots (see Image 4) because that is when the MSSQL services were shut down, causing the server to update the metadata on all the files to the MSSQL services shutdown time.

We tested the functionality of the R-Studio program by creating new databases on a test system. In every instance when the SQL services were started and shut down, the database file metadata was modified to that date and time of the system state change. This testing confirms the April 12, 2021 modification dates correspond to when the “EMSPrimary” server was turned off and services halted.

2. Scan Configuration Files and Databases It appears the Senate performed the R-Studio scan on the subpoena servers RAID storage array drive, referenced on the “EMSPrimary” server as the Drive. RAID storage array configurations maintain data integrity in the event of a hard drive failure and are standard in most enterprise servers. Although the RStudio Data program has many useful features, it is important for the auditors to configure the scans and parameters properly to create viable results. If scan parameters are misconfigured, file associations may not be followed and may be missed entirely. When creating “forensic clones” of RAID arrays, it is critical to understand the source servers parameters for the RAID array’s data to be successfully reproduced. There are several indicators on the R-Studio screenshot that the auditors did not properly reconstruct the “EMSPrimary” servers RAID array. This could result in the R-Studio Data Recovery Technician program not being able to accurately translate the parameters of server’s RAID array partition schema. This is evident in four different ways.

A. First - The Dominion EMS application uses three different database files to function during an election period. o ElectionStore o TabulationStore_Electionname_Date o AdjudicableBallotStore_Electionname_Date If the entire Drive Database directory was deleted, as Senate President Fann’s letter stated, there would be additional deleted databases in the R-Studio list from the screenshot provided (see Image 4 above). The ElectionStore database is not present in the alphabetical ordered screenshot. The fact that the ElectionStore database is not included on the screenshot indicates the screenshot is not representing the complete partition schema within the Drive database folder on “EMSPrimary”.

B. Second - The R-Studio log section of the screenshot (see Image 5) shows signs of significant partition degradation based on improperly configured parameters in the (assumed) reconstruction of the RAID storage array. Image 5: Screenshot of R-Studio log section provided in Senate President Fann’s Letter

C. Third -Additionally, there are two database files named “AdjudicableBallotStore_20201103_General_2020-1” showing 0 bytes in the R-Studio screenshot (see Image 4). This is an indication of a corrupted data retrieval process. Deleted Microsoft SQL database files would have a size associated with them even if the database’s contents were deleted. This corrupt file observation is also supported by the same R-Studio log section of Senate President Fann’s screenshot by showing the program’s inability to properly reconstruct the RAID storage array’s partition mapping and subsequent file associations (see image 6) Image 6: Screenshot of R-Studio provided in Senate President Fann’s Letter

D. Fourth - R-Studio also utilizes the red “X” icon descriptor to indicate three different file states. The red “X” indicates the presence of a deleted file, a corrupted file or a missing (unreachable) file. It is a mistake to assume the red “X" signifies the deletion of a file within a corrupted partition directory. Additionally, the “EMS Primary” server was originally created on August 6, 2019. The Recorder’s IT staff confirmed that backups of the “EMS Primary” server that was delivered to the Senate still show this same creation date. This is evident that the original database folder on the “EMSPrimary” server was not deleted or otherwise tampered with during packaging and delivery to fulfill the Arizona Senate subpoena.

3. Dominion EMS Application Archival Policy and Procedures In the January 15, 2020 published version of the “Democracy Suite Use Procedures” guide, Dominion outlines the proper utilization of database archival processed to maintain the healthy operation of the Dominion EMS system. Section “12.6.3.3” outlines the archival and restoring process. The Elections Department and Recorder’s IT Teams performs actions that are in compliance with guidelines to create archival backups of the full Dominion EMS system databases that would support restoration. Section “12.7” provides guidance on the justifiable moving of election databases to backup storage devices upon setup of a new election. “The purpose of moving election databases and results from RTR [Results Tally & Reporting] is to clear results from a previous election before starting a new election.” It is a legitimate practice to move database files within the Dominion EMS application to backup storage devices prior to creating new election configurations to allow efficient operation during each election cycle. In accordance with the standard database archival processes, the data files (MDF file type) were moved to a backup hard drive in February to ensure the server had sufficient space to perform the statutory mandated March Jurisdictional Election. When this occurred, the SQL Log Files (LDF file type) demanded by the Subpoena were retained on the primary server. These files were not removed and were stored on the server when it was provided to the Senate on 4/21/2021

In a May 15 statement on his website, Trump said corruption has plagued the recount and that "presidential election fraud" should be "one of the biggest stories of our time."

"The entire Database of Maricopa County in Arizona has been DELETED!" the statement says. "This is illegal and the Arizona State Senate, who is leading the Forensic Audit, is up in arms."

 

What a moron, Trump babbles BS more than his idiot supporters who post here.

Republican-led board demands an end to Arizona election audit 'sham' - while GOP official slams theory that ballots were 'shredded and eaten by CHICKENS'

  • Republican-controlled Maricopa County Board of Supervisors slammed the 'sham' recount of the 2020 presidential results 
  • The audit 'has become a spectacle that is harming all of us. Our state has become a laughingstock,' the board wrote to state Senate President Karen Fann
  • Arizona state Senate, controlled by Republicans, ordered the audit
  • Conspiracy theories have grown up around it, including one where officials shred ballots, fed shreds to chickens and then killed the chickens 
  • Maricopa County Recorder Stephen Richer, a GOP official, blasted the theory as 'pretty top of the charts'

The Republican-controlled Maricopa County Board of Supervisors slammed the 'sham' recount of the 2020 presidential results, calling it 'political theater' backed by 'grifters and con-artists.'

The members of the board didn't hold back when it came to expressing their disgust for the audit, which is examining 2.1 million ballots in Arizona's most populous county during the election between Joe Biden and Donald Trump

It has become subject to numerous conspiracy theories including one that state elections officials shredded ballots, fed them to chickens, and then had the chickens incinerated to cover up the evidence.

Judge dismisses Antrim County election fraud lawsuit

Clara Hendrickson
Detroit Free Press May 18, 2021

An Antrim County judge dismissed an election fraud lawsuit Tuesday that has served as a vehicle to advance the unfounded conspiracy theory that tabulators manufactured by Dominion Voting Systems switched votes last fall from Donald Trump to Joe Biden.

More than six months after the election, the lawsuit sought an audit of Michigan’s election results. Michigan election officials already undertook a statewide audit of the presidential election starting in January in which more than 18,000 randomly selected ballots from more than 1,300 jurisdictions were reviewed by clerks.

The Bureau of Elections found that the tabulators counted ballots properly and uncovered no evidence of widespread issues with the machines.

The judge declared the case moot, ruling Central Lake Township resident Bill Bailey, who brought the lawsuit, had already been granted the forensic imaging of the election equipment he requested and there had also been a lawful election audit.

"There is no reason to do it twice," 13th Circuit Court Judge Kevin Elsenheimer said during the Tuesday hearing.

Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson, a defendant in the lawsuit, praised the ruling. 

"The dismissal of the last of the lawsuits attempting to undermine democracy in furtherance of the Big Lie affirms that despite intense scrutiny, and an unprecedented misinformation campaign, the 2020 election was fair and secure, and the results accurately reflect the will of the voters," she said in a statement.

Attorney General Dana Nessel said the ruling "should be the nail in the coffin for any remaining conspiracy theories surrounding the outcome of the Nov. 3 general election." 

The lawsuit was filed Nov. 23, 2020, the same day that the Board of State Canvassers certified Michigan's election results.

It alleged that tabulators used in Antrim County were preprogrammed to switch votes. But in fact, a human error led to inaccurate election night reporting of the unofficial results, which showed Biden winning the GOP stronghold.

The error was caught and corrected the next morning, the results were certified and a hand recount of the ballots affirmed Trump's victory. Trump won the county with more than 61% of the vote. 

More:No, Michigan hasn’t requested full forensic audit of election results

There is no evidence of widespread fraud in the Nov. 3 election. Judges across the country dismissed lawsuits filed in battleground states across the country seeking to delay and derail the certification of election results. The lawsuit against Antrim County seemed to be the only one alleging election fraud that remained active. Meanwhile, Dominion has filed defamation lawsuits against Trump allies and news organizations that peddled misinformation about its machines. 

Matthew DePerno, the Portage attorney who represented Bailey, warned that dismissing the lawsuit would leave a cloud over all future elections.

"How can anyone trust the system in the future?" he asked.

Bailey did not vote in the recent May 4 election because he no longer trusts Dominion's voting machines, DePerno said during a May 10 hearing in the case. 

In December, Elsenheimer authorized a forensic examination of the tabulators used in Antrim County.

The investigation resulted in a flawed report by a self-proclaimed cybersecurity expert who mistook voting jurisdictions in Minnesota for Michigan and made wildly inaccurate claims about voter turnout in Michigan in two other election lawsuits that sought to overturn the results.

More:Fact check: No, an algorithm did not manipulate Michigan’s election results

Another analysis filed in support of the Antrim County lawsuit falsely claimed that an algorithm was deployed in Michigan's election system to manipulate the results.

In making the case against the lawsuit's dismissal during the May 10 hearing, DePerno said that Bailey's request for an independent audit of Antrim County's election hadn't been granted. Elsenheimer ruled Tuesday that it had. 

A newer provision of the Michigan Constitution enacted when voters backed no-reason absentee voting gives voters the right to have the results of statewide elections audited.

But it does not give Bailey the right to a custom audit, Elsenheimer said Tuesday.

More:Antrim County hand tally affirms certified election results

During a news conference Monday in Traverse City hosted by DePerno, a crowd cheered on the lawsuit and DePerno's call for an audit in Michigan like the one being carried out in Maricopa County, Arizona.

The audit in the state's most populous county has breathed new life into Trump's baseless claim that the election was stolen from him. 

Jack Sellers, the Republican chairman of the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors, which oversees the county's elections, called the work carried out by the Florida-based firm Cyber Ninjas hired for the job "a grift disguised as an audit" during a meeting Monday.  

"One should be more concerned about what this exercise is costing us in time and money and why the ninjas can't even find files that were already given to them by Maricopa County," Sellers said. 

Cyber Ninjas provided analysis to support the fraud allegations leveled in the Antrim County lawsuit and the firm's CEO has promoted election fraud claims, the Arizona Republic reported.

Of course that decision was unjustified.. It was based on the SOS conducting an "audit" composed of hand  waving and spitting out the prior number. There is a reconsideration letter DiPerno filed to the judge referencing new info putting in doubt the legitimacy of the State's "audit". 

That is just angering the Rep legislature who are going to call for a statewide audit.

Doesn't sound like the Rep legislature wants anything to do with him:

100 Percent Fed Up Reports – With the exception of one brave patriot, Rep. Matt Maddock (R), every sitting MI state lawmaker has refused to respond to DePerno’s request to sit down with him and go over the information he and his team forensic experts have obtained in their investigation into Antrim County’s November election, where over 5,000 votes were flipped from President Trump to Joe Biden.
