Catherine Engelbrecht, the founder of election integrity watchdog True the Vote, is bringing a new lawsuit against a major American voting software company for its alleged ties to the Chinese Communist Party. The lawsuit, filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, alleges that the company, Smartmatic, has ties to the Chinese government and is using its software to manipulate American elections.
Smartmatic is a major provider of voting software and systems in the United States, and has been used in a number of high-profile elections, including the 2016 presidential election. The lawsuit claims that Smartmatic has close ties to the Chinese Communist Party and that the company has been working to manipulate American elections in order to benefit the Chinese government.
The lawsuit was announced on Steve Bannon’s War Room: Pandemic podcast, where Engelbrecht was a guest. Engelbrecht explained that the lawsuit is an effort to ensure that American elections are free and fair, and that American citizens have the right to vote without interference from foreign governments. She also noted that the lawsuit is a way to hold Smartmatic accountable for its alleged ties to the Chinese government.
Engelbrecht also discussed the importance of election integrity, noting that it is essential for a functioning democracy. She argued that any foreign interference in American elections is a threat to democracy and must be taken seriously. She also emphasized the need for transparency in the voting process, and called on the U.S. government to take action to ensure that American elections are secure and free from foreign interference.
The lawsuit is an important step in protecting American democracy and ensuring that American citizens have the right to vote without interference from foreign governments. It is also a reminder that election integrity is essential for a functioning democracy and that any foreign interference in American elections must be taken seriously. Catherine Engelbrecht’s lawsuit is a powerful example of how citizens can take action to protect their democracy and ensure that their voices are heard.
