Far-Right Group Determines Trump Actually Did Better In Counties That Used Dominion Voting Machines

The Wisconsin Institute for Law and Liberty (WILL), a far-right nonprofit legal firm, determined former Republican President Donald Trump did better during the 2020 general election in counties that used Dominion Voting machines.

WILL found "no evidence of fraud" despite accusations from MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell—a prominent Trump acolyte—that Dominion rigged the election to favor Democratic President Joe Biden.

"Donald Trump won communities that used Dominion voting machines with 57.2%, an increase from 2016," the firm said in a statement, adding:

"WILL could not access voting machines as a part of this review, but we did model the various machines to evaluate their effect on the outcome of the election. Just 14.7% of Wisconsin jurisdictions employ the Dominion voting machines, maligned by many as a culprit in changing votes for Joe Biden." ...
“There was no evidence of widespread voter fraud. In all likelihood, more eligible voters cast ballots for Joe Biden than Donald Trump.We found little direct evidence of fraud, and for the most part, an analysis of the results and voting patterns does not give rise to an inference of fraud.”

The firm's findings dealt a further blow to Trump's efforts to overturn the election results in Wisconsin, a crucial swing state, noting its review of vote counts "closely matched" those reported by the Wisconsin Elections Commission (WEC).

"The review found no evidence of fraudulent ballots. The wards WILL reviewed came from: Milwaukee, Madison, Green Bay, Fox Crossing, Mequon, Waukesha, and West Bend."
"In many of the wards examined, WILL found a significant number of voters who voted for Biden and a Republican for Congress, while far fewer voters split the other way. This is consistent with the explanation that a key driver of Trump’s loss was a segment of traditional Republican voters choosing not to support him."

News of the firm's findings quickly spread on social media.

Many mocked both Lindell and Trump for their futile crusade to delegitimze the election results.










Lindell attracted considerable attention when he held a three-day "Cyber Symposium" he billed as an arena in which he would unveil definitive proof the 2020 election was stolen. Instead, it crashed and burned when he failed to produce any evidence of fraud.

Lindell also made headlines during his own event when he dashed off stage after news outlets reported a judge allowed a $1.3 billion defamation lawsuit filed against him by Dominion to proceed.

In February, Dominion sued Lindell for $1.3 billion, arguing Lindell defamed the company by promoting the baseless conspiracy theory falsely claiming Dominion conspired with foreign powers to rig voting machines to stop former President Trump from winning the 2020 election.

The company seeks more than $651 million in punitive damages as well as a further $651.7 million in compensation from Lindell.

Dominion's claim is about four times MyPillow's annual revenue.

All of these claims essentially ignore Trump's own intelligence agencies determined the election was both free and fair.

In fact, a statement from the Trump administration's own Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), part of a joint statement from the Election Infrastructure Government Coordinating Council and the Election Infrastructure Sector Coordinating Executive Committees, affirmed the agencies found "no evidence that any voting system deleted or lost votes, changed votes, or was in any way compromised."
