Today, Judge Kevin A Elsenheimer of the Michigan 13th Circuit Court granted Attorney Matthew Deperno permission to release the findings from their forensic examination of 16 Dominion Voting machines in Antrim County.
“We believe that public interest in seeing what we discovered and what we say in the report would outweigh any potential harm to Dominion software,” DePerno told the court.
In this case, he argued that verifying the accuracy of the electoral process is of greater public importance than any possible problems related to Dominion software and that the company had an opportunity to interfere but did not do so.
Erik Grill, an assistant attorney general, criticized the lawyer for giving an interview late last week in which he asserted Benson lied.
“The secretary of state has been prejudiced by the premature disclosure of the preliminary report. We just wanted to review the preliminary report and present a counterargument at the same time that the preliminary report was issued,” Grill said. “That is no longer possible as a result of Mr. DePerno’s interview.”
County officials initially said Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden received more than 2,000 votes over President Donald Trump, but later changed the results to show Trump received nearly 4,000 more votes than Biden.
Benson and Antrim County Clerk Sheryl Guy have said what happened was due to human error.
During the interview with Newsmax, Attorney DePerno said: “The Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson said it happened by human error. We discovered that’s not true, that’s a lie. It didn’t happen by human error. It happened by a computer program called Dominion Voting System. And through our lawsuit we were able to get access to the Dominion Voting System program and my team went on last Sunday and we took forensic images on that computer system, 16 CF data cards, 16 thumb drives, and we got the forensic image of the actual tabulation machine in the Antrim County clerk office.”
