A Pennsylvania poll watcher testified to a Senate GOP Policy Committee hearing in Gettysburg Wednesday that he witnessed numerous Election Day irregularities.
Gregory Stenstrom, a former commanding officer in the Navy and a forensic computer scientist with expertise on security and fraud issues, alleged that 47 USB cards used during the Nov. 3 election have gone missing and estimated that as many as 120,000 votes cast in the election should be questioned.
Stenstrom told the committee that he witnessed a number of violations during his time working as a poll water in Delaware County, PA, all of which he said broke rules defined by the Delaware County Board of Elections and the election process review, as reported.
“In all cases the chain of custody was broken,” Strenstrom said. “It was broken for the mail-in ballots, the drop-box ballots, the Election Day USB card flash drives. In all cases they didn’t follow any of the procedures defined by the Board of Delaware County of Elections.”
Strenstrom said in his testimony that he witnessed a warehouse supervisor upload data from USB cards on to voting machines without being observed by a poll watcher, which he said he saw happening at least 24 times.
“I personally observed USB cards being uploaded to voting machines by the voting machine warehouse supervisor on multiple occasions,” Stenstrom testified. “This person is not being observed, he’s not a part of the process that I can see, and he is walking in with baggies of USBs.”
Strenstrom notified law enforcement of his observations, but no action was taken.
“I literally begged multiple law enforcement agencies to go get the forensic evidence from the computers. It’s a simple process. It wouldn’t have taken more than an hour to image all 5 machines. That was never done despite my objections and that was three weeks ago.”
Stenstrom said he was told by an attorney that it’s normal for several USB cards to be left in voting machines and then brought back by the warehouse manager for input into tally systems. When he asked U.S. Attorney General William McSwain and law enforcement officers, he was told it is unusual for more than two drives to be left in voting machines.
“As a computer scientist, an American and a patriot, it doesn’t matter who those votes were for. It was shocking to me that that could even happen,” Strenstrom said. “There is no cure for this, no remedy for this. I don’t believe as a citizen and an observer to this, anyone can certify this with a good conscience.”
Pennsylvania certified its election results on Tuesday, declaring Joe Biden the winner of Pennsylvania’s 20 electoral votes.
The hearing was arranged the next day to address allegations of possible voter fraud following the election.
President Trump was initially planning to attend Wednesday’s hearing, but instead met with his legal advisors in Washington. Trump’s attorney, Rudy Giuliani, appeared at the hearing.
“Your election – because of these two counties, and maybe one other – is a sham,” Giuliani said.
He added that he knew “crooks”, and accused election officials of deliberately rigging the election.
Giuliani said that the type of election irregularities witnesses described in Pennsylvania also occurred in other battleground states.
“What we’re going to describe to you, with these witnesses, happened in roughly the same way in Michigan, Wisconsin, Nevada, and Georgia—the primary device was mail-in ballots.”
Giuliani said he does not want to disenfranchise anyone.
“We want to disqualify 672,000 votes so 72 million people are not disenfranchised, because that’s what happened by the cheating that went on here,” Giuliani said.
Trump’s legal battle in Pennsylvania will continue. A letter was filed with the Third Circuit Court of Appeals on Wednesday, calling for oral arguments as the campaign fights against a dismissal of their case challenging Pennsylvania’s certification of votes.

Ranking GOP Member Exposes Pelosi’s Obstruction to Jan 6 Security Records
As the one year anniversary of the January 6th riots on the U.S. Capitol approach, more information comes to light, particularly with regard to Democrats’ desperate attempts to prove something sinister was planned.
However, Ranking Member for the House Administration Committee Rodney Davis (R-IL) has unveiled new evidence that Pelosi is obstructing access to records relating to the security preparedness of the Capitol on that infamous day.
Davis wrote a letter to speaker Pelosi on January 3, 2022 laying out the timeline as proof for his accusations against Pelosi’s obstruction:
“In the immediate aftermath of January 6th, Republicans began an examination of the Capitol’s security vulnerabilities. On January 13, 2021, as the Ranking Republican Member of the House Administration Committee, I sent letters to the Acting House Sergeant-at-Arms, the House Chief Administrative Officer, and the Acting Chief of the U.S. Capitol Police (USCP) asking them to preserve all records relating to January 6th” the letter states.
“Although the USCP immediately complied with my request to preserve and produce relevant documents, the House Sergeant-at-Arms and Chief Administrative Officer—the two House officers who report directly to you—responded jointly that they were ‘unable to comply with the request at this time.’ Now, nearly a year after this request, the House Sergeant-at-Arms and Chief Administrative Officer have yet to comply with my request.”
“Mr. Irving’s attorneys informed the Senate that ‘the relevant records are the property of the U.S. House of Representatives, and we have therefore referred the Senators’ request for records to the House Office of General Counsel for transmission to the appropriate House officials.’”
“I subsequently wrote to Douglas Letter, the House General Counsel appointed by and responsible to you, to request that he produce Mr. Irving’s communications. However, like the other two House officers who report directly to you, Mr. Letter has not complied—or even responded—to my request for Mr. Irving’s records.”
“Republicans again sought relevant records from House Sergeant-at-Arms and the House Chief Administrative Officer in March 2021 and, once again, the House officers who report to you ignored our requests. At that time, as various federal entities began to produce January 6 material to several House committees, Republicans made requests—including to the House Sergeant-at- Arms and the House Chief Administrative Officer—that all such material be shared equally with Democrats and Republicans. Both the Sergeant-at-Arms and the Chief Administrative Officer failed to produce any documents to Republicans pursuant to our requests, suggesting that these House officers may be providing documents only to Democrats on a partisan basis.”
“As Speaker of the House, you are the most senior elected official in the House of Representatives and therefore ultimately responsible for all House operations, not just those of your party. You appoint all House officers, who serve at your pleasure. You yield enormous institutional power over how Congress operates, including the security posture of the Capitol complex.”
“There is irony in the fact that at the same time House Democrats are holding witnesses in criminal contempt of Congress for raising genuine questions of legal privilege, you continue to obstruct Republican access to House records relating to the security preparedness of the Capitol complex on January 6th, 2021. This double standard only adds to the evidence that Democrats are weaponizing events of January 6th against their political adversaries.”
