Federal Judge reverses original order stopping Georgia from resetting and wiping voter machines

Federal Judge Timothy Batten issued an emergency order Sunday notifying defendants involved in a Georgia election lawsuit that the voting machines and servers must remain intact and not tampered with pursuant to the court order but then reversed his decision several hours later.

The earlier order by Batten, which stated that the defendants ‘maintain the status quo & are temporarily enjoined from wiping or resetting any voting machines in the State of Georgia until further order of the court” was welcomed by Georgia attorney Lin Wood, former federal prosecutor Sidney Powell and others fighting what they say is extensive voter fraud in the 2020 election.

Within hours, however, Batten reversed the order that directed the state to cease and desist wiping or resetting election machines. He reason: the defendants are not in possession of the machines.

Batten’s order stated that the plaintiffs’ request failed “because the voting equipment that they seek to impound is in the possession of county election officials. Any injunction the Court issues would extend only to Defendants and those within their control, and Plaintiffs have not demonstrated that county election officials are within Defendants’ control. Defendants cannot serve as a proxy for local election officials against whom the relief should be sought.”

The new order came alongside an affidavit submitted by a GOP poll worker that stated “because the plan on Monday is to wipe the voting machines clean, and start from 0 so that we can recount using those machines, I’m concerned by what I am reading online. I am seeing lots of notices from lawyers about possibly impounding the machines. Lawyers are now saying that the machines should be confiscated immediately before this happens to protect forensic data. They are saying those machines need to be impounded ASAP. Yikes. Maybe I’m being overly paranoid but let’s be sure this is what we’re supposed to be doing.”

Wood, one of the many attorney’s fighting the alleged voter fraud, condemned Batten’s reversal writing on Twitter, “What??? Judge reversed order based on Defendants’ claim that GA Counties control voting machines.

“What??? Judge reversed order based on Defendants’ claim that GA Counties control voting machines,” Wood wrote on Twitter, adding that the machines are owned by the state and that the Georgia secretary of state administers elections.

“Machines are owned by State & @GASecofState administers state laws on elections,” he added.

DOJ says FBI informant on Biden had ‘high-level’ contacts with Russian intelligence

In a memorandum filed with the U.S. District Court for the District of Nevada to support Alexander Smirnov’s continued pre-trial detention, the Department of Justice(DOJ) wrote that he claimed to have had “contacts with multiple foreign intelligence agencies…[who] could resettle Smirnov outside the United States if he were released.”

Smirnov, a dual citizen of the United States and Israel, was arrested and charged on Feb. 14 with making false statements to the FBI about Biden’s connections to the Ukrainian energy company Burisma Holdings Limited, which employed his son Hunter Biden as a member of the board with a monthly salary of $50,000 during his term as vice president.

“During his custodial interview on February 14, Smirnov admitted that officials associated with Russian intelligence were involved in passing a story about [Hunter Biden],” wrote special counsel David Weiss in the filing. “Smirnov apparently attended a separate meeting with Russian Official 1, [an] individual who controls groups that are engaged in overseas assassination efforts.”

The Daily Caller News Foundation reports that Smirnov was a confidential human source who provided information that was used to prepare a report, known as an FD-1023, about Joe Biden’s alleged connections to the Burisma business partners of Hunter Biden. That report has previously served as evidence contradictingJoe Biden’s claim that he knew nothing of his son’s business dealings; a notion at the center of an impeachment inquiry against him.

The FD-1023 detailing Smirnov’s claims was released by Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa on July 20, 2023, after it was provided to him by government whistleblowers. “[The] indictment confirms several points Senator Grassley has made repeatedly. The informant behind the FD-1023 was, indeed, a long-serving, trusted FBI source used by the agency for criminal investigations since the Obama administration. In fact, he was so trusted that the FBI provided him authorization ‘to engage in illegal activity for investigative purposes’,” a spokesperson for Grassley told the Daily Caller News Foundation.
