No one wants to say they own Dominion voting machines or affiliated with them – that is TOO FUNNY!
Is Dominion ‘Subsidiary Smartmatics’ Chairman Peter Neffenger on Biden’s Transition Team? I think the answer is YES!
In 2018, Dominion was acquired by its management and Staple Street Capital, a private equity firm. Is this the same Staple’s that Mitt Romney founded and was on the board? Is he still affiliated – on the side – with Staples?
(Is this so?)
Who, I wonder who?
Dominion Voting Systems Corporation was founded in 2002 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, by John Poulos and James Hoover. The company develops proprietary software in-house and sells electronic voting hardware and software, including voting machines and tabulators, in the United States and Canada. The company maintains headquarters in Toronto and in Denver, Colorado.
In May 2010, Dominion acquired Premier Election Solutions (formerly Diebold Election Systems, Inc.) from Election Systems & Software (ES&S). ES&S had just acquired Premier from Diebold and was required to sell off Premier by the United States Department of Justice for anti-trust concerns. In June 2010, Dominion acquired Sequoia Voting Systems.
In 2018, Dominion was acquired by its management and Staple Street Capital, a private equity firm.
Poulos, President and CEO of Dominion, has a BS in electrical engineering from the University of Toronto and an MBA from INSEAD. Hoover, Vice President, has an MS in mechanical engineering from the University of Alberta.
Democratic senators warned of potential ‘vote switching’ by Dominion voting machines prior to 2020 election.
Dominion Voting Systems tore into Sidney Powell’s lawsuit accusing it of a vast conspiracy, calling it ‘baseless, senseless, physically impossible’
Dominion Voting Systems, a provider of election infrastructure, responded on Thursday to the pro-Trump lawyer Sidney Powell’s accusations that it took part in vote rigging.
Powell released two lawsuits on Wednesday alleging “massive election fraud” in Georgia and Michigan.
The company is not a defendant in either lawsuit, but its products are mentioned. It responded to dozens of claims made about it in the Georgia suit.
In a point-by-point rejoinder, Dominion said Powell was “alleging a bizarre election fraud conspiracy” that would be impossible to carry out.
Powell was until recently part of President Donald Trump’s legal team. She was unceremoniously dropped after criticism of her outlandish claims.

Dominion Voting Systems, the company that President Donald Trump’s supporters have accused of enabling vast voter fraud in the US, on Thursday released a blistering point-by-point rebuttal to allegations from the attorney Sidney Powell.
Powell on Wednesday published two lawsuits challenging the election results in Georgia and Michigan that accused Dominion of being part of “massive election fraud.”
The company is not a defendant in the lawsuits; governors and local election officials are listed. But allegations about it were scattered throughout, with mentions on 30 pages of the 104-page Georgia lawsuit.
The Michigan case has been filed. But as of Friday, Business Insider had not been able to verify the status of the Georgia complaint in federal court.
Dominion Voting Systems described the allegations in the Georgia suit as “baseless, senseless, physically impossible” and said the events that Powell claimed happened “simply did not occur.”
It said Powell’s document “appears to be a very rough draft” of a lawsuit “alleging a bizarre election fraud conspiracy that — were it possible — would necessarily require the collaboration of thousands of participants.”
The company said that the allegations against it led to harassment and death threats to its staff.
Powell’s lawsuit — which was peppered with typos — claimed that President-elect Joe Biden’s victory in Georgia is fraudulent and should be overturned because of physical and digital vote tampering.
She accused Dominion Voting Systems of being one of two companies “founded by foreign oligarchs and dictators to ensure computerized ballot-stuffing and vote manipulation to whatever level was needed to make certain Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chávez never lost another election.”
She claimed that in Georgia, votes for Trump were “switched” to votes for Biden in such a way as to be undetectable.
She also claimed the voting software “was accessed by agents acting on behalf of China and Iran in order to monitor and manipulate elections.”
Many of her claims have been independently debunked, according to CNN. None of the allegations has been given credence by a judge.
Dominion Voting Systems said the fact that it was founded in Canada is a matter of public record, and it denied any connection to Venezuela or Chávez.
It also said the manipulation Powell described was not possible — “not on a machine-by-machine basis, not by alleged hacking, not by manipulating software, and not by imagined ways of ‘sending’ votes to overseas locations.”
“But even if it were possible, it would have been discovered in the statewide handcount of votes,” it said.
The company’s statement addressed many other points.
Biden was certified as the winner in Georgia after an audit that included a hand recount of more than 5 million paper votes. The Trump campaign has nonetheless requested another recount.
(Hand counts are of no value – just counting the same cheating sheets.)
Dominion Voting Systems had already issued a lengthy rebuttal to a wide range of theories floated by Powell and others about its role in numerous states’ elections.
The company did not immediately respond to Business Insider’s questions about whether it planned to write a rebuttal to charges in the Michigan case, which are similar.
Powell was a prominent part of the Trump campaign’s legal team, but it disowned her after she made claims similar to those in her lawsuits at a press conference with Rudy Giuliani last week.
