Eight election security experts wrote a letter to California’s Secretary of State Shirley Weber to demand an audit on the state’s recall election. The election isn’t for another 11 days but the risks are great enough that they are asking the secretary prepare for a post-election audit now.

“Each of us has well over a decade of continuous experience in that field and a long history of conducting technical studies of voting systems or voting-related cybersecurity, as well as writing, speaking, testifying, making media appearances on many aspects of election integrity,” the letter reads by introduction. “Several of us have served on special panels and task forces appointed by previous California Secretaries of State and have worked closely with local election officials in California.”

Their concern is that the illegal public release of images of Dominion’s electric management system (EMS) could put the election in danger. “As of August 2021, thousands of unknown people can study the code and find weaknesses to plan attacks on elections,” their letter read. “We believe it is important that a public commitment to such post-election verification be made before Election Day. Otherwise, it may appear to be a partisan decision, and there may be calls for other kinds of“audits”that are neither scientifically grounded nor probative, and that would likely undermine public confidence in the election.”

However, a spokeswoman for Weber, Jenna Dresner, said that the state will be using a different version of Dominion’s EMS. As a result, they will allegedly be protected from any election interference.“California has the strictest and most comprehensive voting system testing, use, and requirements in the country, and it was designed to withstand potential threats,” Dresner told the AP.

California voters will decide on Sept. 14th whether to recall current Governor Gavin Newsom and elect conservative Larry Elder, or let Newsom finish his term.

PJ Media report: SHOCKER! WaPo Update About Mar-A-Lago Raid Doesn’t Fit the Narrative

PJ Media’s Kevin Downey Jr. has dissected a Washington Post report regarding findings from the raid of former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate. “Shocker! WaPo Update About Mar-A-Lag0 Raid Doesn’t Fit the Narrative” Downey Jr.’s report is titled.

“Remember when the FBI raided Trump’s home supposedly looking for “nuclear secrets” a few months back? Guess how that turned out?” the article begins.

I’ll let the quislings at the Washinton Post spell it out:

Federal agents and prosecutors have come to believe former president Donald Trump’s motive for allegedly taking and keeping classified documents was largely his ego and a desire to hold on to the materials as trophies or mementos, according to people familiar with the matter.

In other words, Trump was keeping souvenirs, as everyone else does.

Funny how WaPo sat on that story until after the midterms, right?

But wait, there’s more!

That review has not found any apparent business advantage to the types of classified information in Trump’s possession, these people said. FBI interviews with witnesses so far, they said, also do not point to any nefarious effort by Trump to leverage, sell or use the government secrets. Instead, the former president seemed motivated by a more basic desire not to give up what he believed was his property, these people said.

The WaPo also found no evidence that Trump was looking to “leverage, sell or use the government secrets.”

They threw the idea in near the very end that they still might come up with something juicy:

The people familiar with the matter cautioned that the investigation is ongoing, that no final determinations have been made, and that it is possible additional information could emerge that changes investigators’ understanding of Trump’s motivations. But they said the evidence collected over a period of months indicates the primary explanation for potentially criminal conduct was Trump’s ego and intransigence.
