One month after the 2020 presidential defeat of Donald Trump, an unsigned draft White House executive order ordered the Pentagon to seize voting machines across the United States, according to documents released Friday. fair (21).
The text, published by the National Archives and obtained by Politico, highlights the steps Trump may have taken to stay in power after Joe Biden’s victory.
It also ordered the appointment of a special prosecutor to register complaints of fraud allegations arising from the confiscation, dated December 16, 2020.
The three-page draft states that “with immediate effect, the Secretary of Defense will capture, collect, retain, and review all machinery, equipment, electronically stored information and material records.”
To justify this plan, the document lists a series of conspiracy theories about the hacking of election machines – again and again deleted. It is not known who wrote the text.
It was one of more than 750 documents submitted to the Special Committee of the House of Representatives investigating the Capitol Hill attack on January 6, 2021, after the Supreme Court rejected the former president’s appeal to block its release.
The commission, consisting mainly of Democrat lawmakers, is seeking to establish the responsibility of Trump and his allies in the attack on Congress headquarters in an attempt to block Biden’s victory.
Attorney Sidney Powell, one of the investigators’ targets, told reporters that “communist money came through Venezuela, Cuba and probably China.”
Powell and former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani failed in their attempts to get courts to overturn election results in key states just weeks after the Republican mogul was defeated.
The former president and his allies have spent months making false allegations of widespread fraud, despite members of his own administration claiming it was the safest vote in American history. These allegations were also denied by Trump-appointed Attorney General Bill Barr.
One year after officially stepping down, Trump says the 2020 election was “stolen” from him. According to opinion polls, more than half of Republican voters agree with him.
