What are results of Wisconsin election audit? Update and news about state forensic audit. What’s happening for Wisconsin election 2020?
Wisconsin officials asked to preserve ‘any and all’ records on 2020 election – Sept 11
The former state Supreme Court justice hired to investigate the 2020 election in Wisconsin asked the state’s elections commission to make sure “any and all” records related to the contest are preserved as he conducts the investigation.
Special counsel Michael Gableman wrote to the commission Thursday requesting the “retention of records and preservation of evidence” and asking state officials to notify local clerks of the need to preserve metadata, router information, access logs, and other materials during the inquiry.
Gableman also asked officials to forward any information about the destruction of records since Nov. 3 that may result in the obstruction of his investigation.
Republican state Rep. Janel Brandtjen, who heads the chamber’s elections committee, promised in late July to oversee a separate “cyberforensic examination” of the 2020 election.
“Voters have made it clear that they want a thorough, cyberforensic examination of tabulators, ballot marking devices, and other election equipment, which I will be helping facilitate,” Brandtjen said on July 26. “IP addresses, chain of custody on ballots, and audit trail logs must be thoroughly inspected by cyber audit technicians in order to provide confidence for voters in our elections, both completed and upcoming.”

Aug 27: ‘Special counsel’ approved to audit Wisconsin 2020 election
At the end of August, Wisconsin’s legislature has voted to approve an audit for the state’s 2020 presidential election results.
Former state Supreme Court Justice Michael Gableman has been appointed to oversee the investigation of the audit.
“With no public hearing or public meetings — using merely a paper ballot distributed by Republican leadership to members’ offices — the committee that sets the Legislature’s agenda voted along party lines 5-3 to hire staff and officially begin an election audit under the direction of Speaker Robin Vos,” the Wisconsin Examiner reported.
“The brief 5-line ballot did not specify any funding — or cost limits — on the election investigation, but Republicans have indicated they plan to spend $680,000 on ‘at least to start’ in their hunt to find fraud and a ‘steal’ of the presidential election,” the report continued.
“The actual ballot wording allows Vos to appoint someone to ‘oversee an Office of Special Counsel’ investigating the integrity of the election (Well before the vote he had already tapped former Supreme Court Justice Michael Gableman — an outspoken critic of the 2020 presidential election),” the report added.
“The Wisconsin presidential election is also being audited by the Legislative Audit Bureau, a nonpartisan legislative agency,” the report noted. “And it has been confirmed as accurate in three canvases, two partial recounts, random machine audits, the Wisconsin Elections Commission oversight and withstood various court challenges.”
The Examiner report added:
In a sign that there is still a division among Republican election skeptics, some legislators are getting lobbied to support the Brandtjen audit instead of Vos’ plan. Previously, that audit was referred to by supporters as a ‘cyber forensic audit,’ but with Vos now calling his audit by that name, Brandtjen’s supporters are now demanding a ‘Full Forensic Physical and Cyber Audit’ (or FFPCA for short) in contrast with Vos’ ‘forensic cyber audit.’
Proponents of election-fraud theories, both groups, and individuals, continue to express dissatisfaction with Vos on various message boards and email lists viewed by the Examiner. A key difference appears to be their desire to seize machines and materials.
Aug 25: House Speaker Robin Vos calls for ‘CYBER FORENSIC AUDIT’
Wisconsin’s Speaker Robin Vos on Wednesday (Aug 25) called for a “cyber forensic audit” of the state’s 2020 election results.
Earlier, Robin Vos said in a statement Saturday he was going to be keeping Trump “updated on our investigation.”
In a statement, Vos said: “It was an honor to be invited to travel by private plane with President Trump and top staff to attend his rally in Alabama.”
Vos has vowed the investigation he ordered into the 2020 election is not seeking to overturn it.
“I provided (Trump) details about our robust efforts in Wisconsin to restore full integrity and trust in elections,” Vos said in his statement. “While our attempts to make common sense election reforms to close loopholes and standardize procedures were vetoed by Governor Evers, we have doubled down on our top-to-bottom investigation by Special Counsel Justice Michael Gableman. We will do whatever it takes to help Justice Gableman uncover reports of systematic fraud in our forensic audit.”
Wisconsin grassroots leader Jefferson E. Davis sent out this list of updates from Wisconsin today.Please consider the following updates regarding the Wisconsin Full Forensic Cyber Audit (FFCA):
- Breaking News – Speaker Vos totally changes course and now calls for “cyber-forensic audit” (see attached Statement). The verdict is still out.
- Turning Wisconsin Red Map has been updated with 31 Counties in the fold and the map now has the phone numbers of Speaker Vos, Senator Kapenga and Senator LeMahieu to contact for their signature and how many days it’s been since the subpoenas were dropped for Brown and Milwaukee Counties (see attached). Washington County is the latest GOP Leadership Team to help Turn Wisconsin Red (see attached). Updates from other Counties forthcoming shortly.
- Ad-hoc Committee met in emergency session on August 24th and will have some recommendations for the County GOP Leadership Teams and affiliated groups on how to politely and professionally approach Legislators to encourage them to support the “full forensic cyber audit” that Speaker Vos is now calling for.
- Well respected and independent voting integrity non-profit organization, Look Ahead America (www.lookaheadamerica.org) , recently released their evaluation of the November 3, 2020 Federal Election in Wisconsin showing, according to their research, that some 157,000 illegal ballots were cast in the election (see attached).
- Former Chief-of-Staff to President Trump, Reince Priebus, appeared on Real America Voice (www.americasvoice.news) yesterday and is now calling for a “full forensic cyber audit in Wisconsin. This is also a change in the type of language being used by Priebus.
- One can only wonder if the atrocities occurring in Afghanistan might have been avoided if election fraud in Wisconsin would have been prevented.
August 6: Republican issues subpoenas to audit 2 counties
On August 6, the head of the Wisconsin Assembly’s elections committee has issued subpoenas for election materials, including ballots and voting machines from two counties in a “top-to-bottom” investigation of the 2020 presidential results.
Republican state Rep. Janel Brandtjen sent the subpoenas to Milwaukee and Brown counties. She said last month that she wanted to conduct a review similar to Arizona election audit.
Brandtjen and other Wisconsin Republicans traveled to that state in June to observe the review.
It’s unclear whether the Wisconsin review will happen. Two other investigations of the election results are already underway and Assembly Speaker Robin Vos signaled that he doesn’t support a third probe. The Legislature’s attorneys said in a June memo that only Vos has the power to issue subpoenas.
Brandtjen spoke at a noon rally at the state Capitol celebrating the subpoenas and promised to put questions about election fraud to rest.
“We’re finally going to put this to bed,” she said to applause and cheers.
July: Wisconsin moves forward with 2020 election forensic audit
Wisconsin State Representative Janel Brandtjen issued a press release on July 26: “Assembly Campaigns and Elections Committee to Initiate More Intensive Investigation of Fraudulent Activity.”
Rep. Brandtjen is the Chair of the Wisconsin Assembly Committee on Campaigns and Elections. She visited the Maricopa audit earlier this month. On Monday she called for an Arizona-style audit of Wisconsin’s November election.
In her statement, Rep. Brandtjen writes:
“Voters have made it clear that they want a thorough cyber-forensic examination of tabulators, ballot marking devices, and other election equipment, which I will be helping facilitate on behalf of the committee as chair… IP addresses, chain of custody on ballots, and audit trail logs must be thoroughly inspected by cyber-audit technicians… While WI is in the process of an election audit, I will be working to ensure that it is augmented with expertise and resources to ensure a comprehensive, forensic examination.”
Here is Rep. Janel Brandtjen’s complete statement.
Report on Wisconsin election audit emerges in May
Wisconsin is officially auditing the results of the 2020 Election, with the official announcement coming today according to Newsmax reporter Emerald Robinson.
Robinson announced on Twitter, “The state of Wisconsin authorized an audit of the 2020 election!”
The official audit was ordered almost three months ago by Republicans in the State Legislature, according to Newsweek. The Joint Legislative Audit Committee voted to order the audit along party lines. The audit will be run by a non-partisan body.
Republicans argue that the measure is necessary to increase transparency in the highly controversial 2020 election, as well as our election system in general. Since Biden only won Wisconsin by about 20,000 votes, it is imperative to ensure that voter fraud played no role in his victory.
“I know that this audit will help people understand our elections better and hopefully put to rest concerns, and if there are some problems with administration, I’m confident we’ll fix them,” declared State Senator Robert Cowles (R-WI), co-chair of the Audit Committee. The full forensic audit comes after Wisconsin only had a recount in two counties in the weeks following the 2020 election. Unlike the statewide forensic audit, the recount did not throw out ballots if they were found to be illegitimate, thus rendering such efforts ineffective.
The audit also comes as a similar effort in Arizona continues to uncover irregularities: ballot discrepancies in Arizona are as high as 17.5%, or one out of every six ballots. The Wisconsin audit is expected to conclude in the fall of 2021.
“The Dominoes Are Starting to Fall – The Freight Train Is Coming Across the Country”
Boris Epshteyn, former special assistant to President Trump, joined Steve Bannon on The War Room to discuss the latest developments in the Arizona forensic audit.
Boris Epshteyn: Vernon Jones press conference yesterday in Georgia, let me tell you, absolutely groundbreaking… The Dominos are starting to fall. The freight train is coming across the country…
Steve Bannon: As Dr. Peter Navarro said Georgia is the cesspool. Wisconsin is the easiest to prove. As you said, Boris, all the problems in Arizona that we’re finding and is going to flip to Trump. Mike Lindell says 80,000. Navarro says a couple hundred thousand… As bad as Pennsylvania is, and Michigan and Wisconsin, and all this, that Georgia’s the cesspool and that’s why Vernon is going for it.
Boris Epshteyn: I’m hearing rumblings out of Pennsylvania, of course, Michigan we know what’s going on there in Antrim County and Michigan broader. Wisconsin, very easy. Wisconsin, just Milwaukee, Dane County, where Madison is. We know from the audit that was already done in those two counties that they found over 200,000 unlawful ballots there in an election that was decided by 20,000.
Steve Bannon: Wisconsin will be the easiest to prove
Steve Bannon called out the left for their “complete panic” over the ongoing forensic audits. He also said Wisconsin would be the easiest to prove the election fraud.
Steve Bannon: Wisconsin’s the easiest to prove. My point on this right now is the Associated Press, The Hill, MSNBC, they are all in a panic, ladies and gentlemen! They’re in a full panic! They have seen what Michael Patrick Leahy’s reporting has done in Georgia. They see what the judge did in Georgia. They see the patriot’s progress on the Concord Bridge of the convention center in Arizona. They see what’s happening behind the scenes in Pennsylvania. They see the talk that’s going down in Michigan… So, now in Wisconsin, they do not talk about the indefinitely confined. That’s where the clerks stole it and the early voting scandal!
