As President Trump’s top lawyers accuse Dominion Voting Systems of being responsible for flipping votes from Trump to Biden on election day, representatives for the company – which are responsible for a third of all voting machines in the country – have steadfastly denied that anything having to do with their machines or their software could have led to fraud or inaccuracy in the count. However, given a chance to go on record with Pennsylvania’s State Government Committee on Friday, the company instead chose to clam up, skip the hearing, and surround itself with lawyers.
That leads many to ask the obvious question: What is Dominion trying to hide?
Pennsylvania State Rep. Seth Grove, who was to oversee the hearing, was perplexed at outraged at Dominion’s decision to back out at the last minute. Grove said it’s important for the company to open itself up to public questions and clarify matters that may be confusing to voters.
“Last evening Dominion voting systems lawyered up and backed out of their commitment to the people of Pennsylvania to provide input in a public format in which 1.3 million Pennsylvanian’s entrusted. Instead of running toward the light of honesty and integrity, Dominion Voting Systems retreated to the darkness,” Grove said in a statement.
“Why?” he continued. “Why would a vendor of public goods fear discussing their products sold to the public for the public good? If Dominion’s products were successful and operated as they were supposed to why wouldn’t Dominion take the opportunity to publicly review its success?”
Grove said that Dominion’s decision to run for cover only gave further credence to the allegations against them.
“How hard is it to say our ballot machines worked exactly as promised and they are 100 percent accurate?” he wondered. “Why after weeks of accusations has Dominion Voting Systems not released any analysis of the success of their voting machines to the public in order to stop their accusers in their tracks?
“If they have nothing to hide, why are they hiding from us?” he continued. “I am sad to report to the tax payers of Pennsylvania, the 1.3 million voters who trusted Dominion Voting Systems with their ballots that Dominion Voting Systems has hung you out to dry and slapped you in your faces. Not only are Pennsylvanians more skeptical, but the actions of Dominion Voting Systems last night led credibility to their accusers accusations. To date, the secretary of state has initiated no plans to address the concerns of Pennsylvanians.”
If Dominion is fully confident in their machines, there is absolutely no reason they should not sit for questioning by lawmakers. If they aren’t…well, then that opens up the significant possibility that something really was amiss in this election.
