***UPDATE: Two high-level officials with the Georgia secretary of state’s office and a state elections board monitor said that their investigations revealed nothing suspicious in the video.***
A video from Fulton County’s State Farm Arena allegedly shows that on Election Day after poll watchers left, four election officials stayed behind to count ballots. You don’t want to miss this.
CCTV video footage of State Farm Arena in Atlanta, Georgia, allegedly shows that after poll monitors and media were told counting was done, four workers stayed behind to count ballots, according to Trump’s legal team.
In the video, the workers are seen pulling out suitcases allegedly containing ballots from underneath a table. The room is where absentee and military ballots were being tabulated.
Georgia elections officials have since said those were not suitcases but container boxes that are used to store ballots.
Gabriel Sterling, the head of Georgia’s voting system implementation manager, told a fact-checking website after the footage was released that “if you look at the videotape, the work you see is the work you would expect, which is you take the sealed suitcase looking things in, you place the ballots on the scanner in manageable batches and you scan them.”
Frances Watson, the chief investigator for the Georgia secretary of state, also disputed some of the claims: “There wasn’t a bin that had ballots in it under that table. It was an empty bin and the ballots from it were actually out on the table when the media were still there, and then it was placed back into the box when the media were still there and placed next to the table.”
Watson said that the area was still open to the public and that nobody told poll observers to stay or leave. But her claim and similar ones made by Fulton County officials have been disputed by Georgia GOP Chair David Shafer, who on Thursday, wrote that the assertion that an observer was present during the process is “untrue, as the video shows. Our position is unchanged. Ballots were counted unlawfully and in secret.”
“Even had state monitors been present, the law still requires that ballot counting be open to partisan monitors and the public. But state monitors were not present, as the @GaSecofState now acknowledges and the video shows,” Shafer said.
The video starts at 8 am on Election Day, but it’s not until after 10 pm that the suspicious event occurs.
We can see a room full of activity, and the Trump attorney presenting the video says GOP poll watchers and media are still present until approximately 10:25 pm.
“According to the witnesses, the Republican observers, there’s a lady who has blonde braids who comes out to announce ‘we’re going to stop counting,’ and ‘everyone go home'” the Trump attorney said. “And in fact, we see that and we see everyone clears out including the Republican observers and the press—but four people stay behind.”
“Who continue counting and tabulating well into the night from that point, which is going to be about 10:25 when they all clear out or 10:30,” she adds. “And they will continue counting unobserved and unsupervised out of public view as your statue requires until about one in the morning.”
The female Trump attorney goes on to claim that the GOP observers were suspicious so they went to the central tabulation center and got word from a news crew that counting had continued. So, not “everybody left according to plan,” the attorney alleged.
This shocked the Republican observers, so they returned at about 1 am.
“We see four people who stayed behind consistent with our affidavits,” the Trump attorney says as she narrates the video at the Georgia hearing. “So when the coast is clear around 11:00 o’clock they are gonna pull ballots out from underneath a table…watch this table.”
“They pull ballots from underneath a table hidden by a table cloth,” she adds. “So what are these ballots doing there separate from all other ballots? And why are they only counting it then when the place is cleared out from all other witnesses?”
“That table was placed there at about 8:22 am by the lady with the blonde braids,” the attorney said. “So, she put that table there. The same person who cleared the place out is the person who put the table there.”
“Yeah, I saw four suitcases that come out from under that table,” she declares. “These machines can process about 3,000 ballots an hour. You have multiple machines there. And they’re there for two hours so you do the math.”
The attorney said that during the day the ballots were brought in from one door and were never pulled out from under a table. She also said they only obtained this video the night before the Georgia hearing.
They decided after watching the key parts over and over and comparing how votes were tabulated during the day, that these “suitcases of ballots” were highly suspicious.
Here’s the video evidence from Fulton County that was played before the Georgia Senate Oversight Committee, members of the Press, and President Trump’s legal team:
The attorney provided a video that should be investigated by forensic election examiners. If the allegation is true, these election workers were tabulating votes without GOP poll watchers or press present.
At the very least, the Georgia legislature should not certify the election for Joe Biden. Americans who feel their vote was violated by these states must continue to put the screws to their elected officials. Swamp creatures, as most politicians are, will not act unless We the People demand it.
