One month after Donald Trump’s 2020 presidential defeat, a draft executive order from the White House ordered the country’s top military official to seize election machines across the United States, according to documents released by the store on Friday.
The document, which explodes from the National Archives, highlights the radical actions of the former Republican leader who was ready to cling to power.
“As of today, the Minister of Defense must capture, collect, retain and inspect all machinery, all equipment, and all information stored electronically.” Related to the election, the three-page draft was not signed. It also ordered the appointment of a special prosecutor responsible for filing complaints on fraud charges arising from the confiscation, dated December 16, 2020.
In order to justify this plan, the document lists conspiracy theories about the fact that election machines have been hacked – repeatedly denied. It is not known by whom this was written.
A “stolen” election, according to Trump
This is one of more than 750 documents handed over to the House of Representatives investigating the Capitol storm attack, following the Supreme Court’s rejection of Donald Trump’s appeal to block their disclosure. The Commission did not respond to AFP’s requests.
The group, which consists mainly of elected Democrats, seeks to establish responsibility for Donald Trump and his entourage in the January 6, 2021 attack on the Congress seat.
One year after officially leaving power, Donald Trump says the 2020 election was “stolen” from him. According to opinion polls, more than half of Republican voters agree with him.
