(Nov. 6, 2022) — A three-minute recorded message from True the Vote contractor Gregg Phillips, who has been imprisoned in a federal institution in Texas since Monday at the order of Senior Judge Kenneth M. Hoyt, announces a new “Locals” channel and thanks supporters for having “reached out to us in prayer, reached out to us with kindness, and even a few people that reached out to us with a little bit of their own brand of hate; we actually even appreciate you.”

“This week has been incredible,” Phillips says in the recording. “We’ve been held political prisoner. We are in jail. We are in solitary confinement in jail. Our voices have been silenced…and we believe that Marxism and communist America is in full swing,” Phillips said.

“The American left has conspired with the media,” he continued, “and they’ve conspired with a rogue political government to silence the right. Whether it’s Donald J. Trump, whether it’s Roger Stone, whether it’s Paul Manafort, whether it’s General Mike Flynn, they’re doing everything they can do to silence us, but it won’t happen. We will not be silenced, period.”

At a show-cause hearing Monday morning, Hoyt ordered U.S. Marshals to take Phillips and True the Vote founder Catherine Engelbrecht to prison for defying his order to produce the name of a witness present during a demonstration last year in a Dallas hotel room indicating that an American election-related software company, Konnech, Inc., appeared to have sent the personal data of U.S. election workers to servers located in Communist China.

Konnech denies the claim and in September sued True the Vote for defamation, later obtaining a temporary restraining order (TRO) and prevailing in its motion to hold Engelbrecht and Phillips in contempt of court, resulting in their current incarceration.

On October 4, Konnech’s CEO, Eugene Wu, was arrested in Michigan at the request of Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascon after an investigation revealed evidence that poll workers’ personal data had been compromised by Konnech, whose software the county employs.

On Wednesday True the Vote’s attorneys filed a motion for Phillips and Engelbrecht’s release from detention to the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals, with the court issuing an order to Konnech to respond by 5:00 p.m. Saturday.

The new Locals channel is available at a free level or by subscription, Phillips explained, with a discount applied to those choosing to support with an annual membership. The channel’s name is based on Phillips’s podcast, “Patriot Games.”

On Sunday TTV thanked 45th President Donald J. Trump for mentioning Engelbrecht and Phillips’s plight at a rally for U.S. Senate candidate Dr. Mehmet Oz in Latrobe, PA.

Digital Strategy Ltd. CEO Brian Glicklich has been serving as TTV’s spokesman, having conducted interviews on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” and “War Room” over the weekend.
