The Trump campaign celebrated a legal victory after Circuit Judge Kevin Elsenheimer said he would allow investigators to proceed a forensic examination of 22 Dominion voting machines used on Election Day in Antrim County, Michigan.
“Our team is going to be able to go in this morning at about 8:30 and will be there for about eight hours to conduct that forensic examination and we’ll have the results in about 48 hours, and that’ll tell us a lot about these machines,” Trump election attorney Jenna Ellis told Fox News.
“A judge actually granted our team access … to conduct a forensic audit,” Ellis added.
Ellis was referring to a ruling from a judge in Antrim County, Michigan, who authorized the audit of 22 Dominion Voting Systems machines, said Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani.
Rudy Giuliani called the order a “big win” for honest elections. Judge Elsenheimer’s order start from a challenge by a voter who claims that ballots were damaged during a recount of a village marijuana proposal that just barely passed.
Antrim County infamously showed Joe Biden as the winner of the county before a “human error” was discovered and Trump was revealed the true winner of the county by several thousand votes.
The Michigan GOP noted in November that voting machines in Antrim County incorrectly switched 6,000 votes to Joe Biden from Trump. The secretary of state’s office said it was due to a technical error and non-updated software, adding that the issue was later corrected.
Jake Rollow, a spokesman for Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson, told the Detroit News that the judge’s order isn’t clear.
“However, what we know, and has been previously explained on numerous occasions, is that a human error by the Antrim County Clerk prompted results to be reported incorrectly,” Rollow told the publication. “Reporting errors are common, have no impact on tabulation, and are always caught and corrected in the county canvass if not before, as was the case in Antrim County.”
Lawsuits allege that nearly 300,000 votes were manipulated in Michigan. Dominion “is responsible for “the injection or fabrication, of 289,866 illegal votes in Michigan, that must be disregarded,” says expert witness Russell Ramsland Jr.
Dominion, in numerous statements, has vigorously denied that its machines can switch votes from one candidate to another and also has denied ties to other vote-tabulation software companies or foreign governments.
