Harrisburg, Pennsylvania (AP) —Dominion Voting Systems has a voting machine inspection of specific Pennsylvania credentials as part of a Republican lawmaker’s investigation into the 2020 elections in Pennsylvania.
The Democratic majority’s state Supreme Court ruled 5-2 in line with party policy to overturn the January ruling of the lower federal court by Republican judges.
The judge ruled that Dominion could not intervene in a broader proceeding in the 2020 elections, including inspections of equipment heavily used by Republican Fulton County.
The Dominion proceedings are nothing more than a tentacle of a Republican business in Pennsylvania, inspired by the groundless allegations of former President Donald Trump’s fraudulent elections.
Monday’s decision reinstates Dominion’s request to inspect equipment by a federal-approved voting system test lab or national lab used by the Department of Homeland Security’s cybersecurity and infrastructure security agencies.
Republicans are now fighting in court and using contractors of their choice to download “digital data” from Dominion’s election computers and hardware used by Fulton County in the 2020 elections.
Dominion was the subject of some of the most enthusiastic right-wing conspiracy theories about elections believed to have been stolen from Trump. Since then, he has filed numerous defamation proceedings against Trump allies and right-wing broadcasters.
