(Jul. 5, 2021) — Matthew DePerno, an attorney representing Antrim County, MI resident and registered voter William Bailey in an election-based lawsuit claiming malfeasance on the part of local and state officials, told Steve Bannon of “War Room” Monday he has discovered that reaches occurred in the voter-registration databases in three states on November 3, 2020 which could have altered the outcome of the election.
DePerno appears during the last four minutes of Bannon’s show here.
“In Michigan, Georgia and Arizona, in all of them, we have found anonymous user remote-access logons that would have elevated privileges in the Election Management System, which means anyone who does that through a remote logon with elevated privileges can access the actual database and change results, so that’s pretty significant that we found it in three states now; it is a pattern, and it is significant,” DePerno told Bannon.
On his YouTube channel Monday, Bailey described a brief phone call he had with DePerno in which DePerno communicated those findings just before his appearance on Bannon’s show.
“This is massive news, guys; I just got off the phone with Matt DePerno…He just got back from Arizona,” Bailey told his audience. “We now know, and this is from Matt DePerno; this is breaking news on the War Room, that the qualified voter registration list at the Arizona secretary of state was breached on November 3, that the secretary of state knew this, that Maricopa County knew this, and it’s been covered up.”
Through his lawsuit, DePerno claimed that Antrim County’s November 3 election results were “subverted,” from the presidential race down to local races for school board, accusing Antrim County Clerk Sheryl Guy and Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson of “fraud.”
In late April, in the face of considerable opposition, Maricopa County, AZ launched a forensic audit of the November 3, 2020 election which is nearly completed. According to the Republican state senators and others supportive of the audit, the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors has not provided all materials subpoenaed by the senators and approved by a circuit judge in February.
The Supervisors claim that state senate leader Karen Fann has defamed them by accusing them of deleting an election database, calling her allegations “demonstrably false.”
“I got some other news,” Bailey continued Monday’s YouTube broadcast. “Plus there’s been three anonymous remote logins in three different states, different times they did it in each state…Arizona being one of them,” Bailey continued. “We just keep learning more and more.”
DePerno, as did Bailey, announced the startup of a fund to continue the Maricopa County audit, although the website indicates that donors may direct funds to specific causes such as “Civil Rights/Litigation,” “Georgia/Litigation,” “Michigan/Litigation” and “Pennsylvania/Litigation.”
While some reports have suggested the three other states will conduct Maricopa-style audits, none has officially begun one.
As his third news item, DePerno told Bannon in an exclusive, “Our team also discovered the following: that Maricopa County and the secretary of state in Arizona have known for quite some time, since November third, that there was a security breach of the voter-registration servers and they have hid this from the American public, and we are releasing it right now on your show for the first time.” [sic]
In response to Bannon’s question as to when he will release “evidence” of his claims, DePerno said, “We are working on it; we just found out about it yesterday, so we’re working on that today, tomorrow; we’ll get that data out.”
In a spirited rally on Friday, 45th President of the United States Donald J. Trump, who has insisted he won the election over Democrat Joe Biden, told his audience, after recounting that all indications were that he would win handily but was declared the loser, “But a lot of things are happening; watch; just stay tuned. I want to thank so many of the states; you look at what’s going on in some of the states; it’s incredible what they’re doing because they get it. And I’m far more popular now than on Election Day because the people have watched what the h*** has happened to our country in just a very short period of time…”
During the 91-minute address, Trump stressed items about which he has been proven “right” but which were denied by the press, his detractors, and political opponents. “I wonder what I will be proved right about next; perhaps it will be the election.”
Update, 7:41 p.m. EDT: The Post & Email contacted Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs for comment on DePerno’s allegation and will report any response received.
