Hopefully, he traveled to see how not to conduct an audit.

"Hopefully, he traveled to see how not to conduct an audit."

Let's hope so. Who on earth could come away from a meeting with Crackhead Mike and think, "Oh yeah, that makes a lot of sense!"

Lindell's symposium exposed him to be total fraud. I don't know how anyone can continue to support Lindell's claims after his own analysts came out and said they've got nothing.

From the article:

" ... cyber expert Josh Merritt, who is on the team hired by Mr. Lindell to interrogate the data for the symposium, told The Washington Times that packet captures are unrecoverable in the data and that the data, as provided, cannot prove a cyber incursion by China. "So our team said, we're not going to say that this is legitimate if we don't have confidence in the information," Mr. Merritt said on Wednesday, the second day of the symposium.
Ouch. That burn has got to hurt.

I wonder if the Cyber Ninjas in Arizona will be as forthcoming?

Wait.
Gabelman went to Arizona in the middle of the summer? And followed that trip with a visit to South Dakota? His choices in travel and those with whom he associates is certainly in question...

Didn't you hear? He was inaugurated as the 19th President of the New Reformed Republic. Why else would he have a cabinet?

Hopefully he learned the fraudheads are all crazy. And hopefully, that he likes turds.
Or maybe he just wanted to see a circus because by all reports, including in the rightwing Washington Examiner, that's what it was.

A federal judge denied motions from Sidney Powell, Rudy Giuliani, and Mike Lindell to dismiss Dominion's lawsuits against them

...A federal judge in Washington, DC, on Wednesday denied motions from Sidney Powell, Rudy Giuliani, and MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell seeking to dismiss defamation lawsuits brought against them by Dominion Voting Systems.

Dominion sued Giuliani, Powell, and MyPillow, alleging $1.3 billion in damages in three separate lawsuits filed in January and February, saying they made defamatory claims about the company's role in the 2020 election by promoting false election conspiracy theories.

Each of the defendants asked US District Judge Carl J. Nichols to dismiss the lawsuits. Nichols heard arguments over the matter at a marathon 4-hour hearing in June.

The ruling means that all of the multibillion-dollar defamation lawsuits from Dominion Voting Systems will proceed in full against Giuliani, Powell, and Lindell....

Nichols ruled that == if the cases went to trial as Dominion requested -- a jury could reasonably find that Powell, Giuliani, and Lindell acted recklessly in claiming Dominion "flipped" election results from Trump to now-President Joe Biden....

Nichols also pointed out that Powell may have fabricated sections of some affidavits, and that one "expert" she cited in her lawsuits was clearly a conspiracy theorist....


fwiw, Judge Nichols is a Trump appointee.

..."It used to be fun to be an election clerk, but it isn't any more," he added.

On Friday, an orange prison jump suit was delivered to offices of the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors, addressed to the five-member board, which has strongly denounced a recount of 2020 ballots commissioned by the GOP-led state Senate as a sham.

Threats against the Republican-majority board have picked up in recent weeks, particularly after it refused to comply with the Senate's most recent demand for access to local computer routers and internal logs, said Maricopa County Supervisor Bill Gates. The board's stance led some members of the state Senate to call for the supervisors to be jailed and even held in solitary confinement.

Last week, Gates said, the board received a voice mail in which a caller threatened to kill each member and their families....
