A recently uncovered filing from the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) exposed Dominion Voting Systems’ troubling financial connections with Chinese investors. The SEC filing was signed in October by Hootan Yaghoobzadeh, who represents the issuer, Staple Street Capital.
The SEC filing shows the details of Staple Street Capital’s sale to UBS Securities LLC, a Chinese Investment Bank. Thus, the private equity firm owning Dominion Voting Systems means it’s under Chinese ownership.
UBS Securities was established in 2006 in China’s capital city of Beijing, and it’s become enormous with direct government assistance from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).
Sadly, this is not the first hint of Chinese involvement with Dominion Voting Systems.
US election law prohibits foreign activity in various parts of the electoral process. Strict rules about fundraising disallow foreign donations to campaigns. Laws such as these were made to stop foreign lobbying of US political systems and “retain domestic control and oversight of our electoral process.”
President Trump signed an executive order on November 12 that “addresses the threat of Chinese Communist Party malicious cyber-enabled actions against the United States and its people.” The executive order focuses on any Chinese military’s financial investment to make inroads against US interests.
States need to certify their elections to satisfy the State and Federal laws for the electors to be accepted into the electoral college. On December 14, the Electoral College will meet and cast their votes.
The first candidate to receive 270 electoral votes will take the Presidency. Any failure to satisfy either the State or Federal requirements for electors could lead to a failure to reach 270 votes for either candidate.
The outcome of the 2020 Presidential Election is not finalized and remains to be decided by the electoral process.
