Biden administration officials insist elections are fair yet object to disclosing a report that, if so, should support their message.
The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) was given a complete copy February 2 of a report analyzing Dominion Voting Systems performance in the Georgia election. The report from University of Michigan Center for Computer Security and Society Director J. Alex Halderman discusses “potential vulnerabilities in Dominion ImageCast X ballot marking devices,” according to a report in The Epoch Times.
Halderman previously investigated Dominion, in Michigan. “Misreported election results in a rural northern Michigan county drew national attention on Election night 2020 and led to the release of a false report claiming that the county’s Dominion Voting Systems equipment had deliberately introduced errors,” he opined in his report on the University website.
The 54-page report debunked claims of malfeasance by the electronic voting machine company so Halderman is clearly not biased against the company. The investigation outlined a series of human errors and cleared the company of wrongdoing in reporting false tabulations during the election.
Why, then, is the company and the Biden administration so opposed to the release of this report on the company’s performance in the state of Georgia?
Nobody at CISA was immediately available and voicemail left with a Department of Homeland Security communications office representative was not immediately returned.
An email to Dominion Voting Systems requesting clarification about why it would take ten months to refactor their code to fix vulnerabilities outlined in the report they seek to suppress was not immediately returned.
CISA gives what sounds like reasonable arguments for delaying release of the report in a Thursday filing with the United States District Court for the Northern District of Georgia.
“CISA is particularly concerned about dissemination of potential vulnerabilities — even in redacted form — before CISA and the vendor have been able to address them through appropriate mitigation action,” argues Acting Assistant Attorney General Brian M. Boyton. “Such premature disclosure increases the risk that malicious actors may be able to exploit any vulnerabilities and threaten election security.”
But Ga. Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger publicly called on Halderman to ask the judge to immediately release an unredacted copy of his report. He claims the report is not a fair analysis because the author is being paid by Dominion.
“Halderman was given full access to Georgia’s election system by the judge, the equivalent of having the keys and alarm codes to a home then claiming he found a way to break in,” Raffensperger said in his release.
