Flashback: Democrats Warned of Voting Machines ‘Switching’ Votes Last Year

By

On Thursday, President Trump sounded the alarm about Dominion Voting Systems, claiming as many as 2.7 million Trump votes were deleted and switched to Biden in Pennsylvania and other states using the software.

Twitter predictably flagged the claim, and the media rushed to dispute it. Even Snopes fact-checked the claim as false.

But last year, three Democrat senators, including former presidential candidates Elizabeth Warren (Mass.) and Amy Klobuchar (Minn.), sounded the alarm about the vulnerabilities of voting machines.

In a December 6, 2019, letter, Warren, Klobuchar, Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.), and Rep. Mark Pocan (D-Wisc.), issued a formal complaint about these three companies, which they said “threaten the integrity of our elections.”

This may not prove Trump’s claim of votes being switched, but it proves that these allegations of problems began long before he was saying they were a problem.
