Dominion Voting Systems, which is at the center of the #Glitchgate scandal in the contested 2020 election, was acquired by private equity firm Staple Street Capital in July 2018.
Staple Street Equity was founded by former members of the George Soros-funded Carlyle Group. Executive Director of Carlyle Group, William Kennard, is director of Staple Street Capital.
Kennard was appointed FCC chairman during the Clinton administration and was appointed Ambassador to the European Union during the Obama era. On Nov. 6, Bloomberg reported that Kennard was named as the next chairman of AT&T Inc.
“Team Obama literally bought the voting machines and software being used to count the votes in this election,” an independent media member noted.
Former federal prosecutor Sidney Powell said in a Fox News interview that Democrats had invested in the use of Dominion Voting Systems to commit “fraud” on elections.
“They have invested in it for their own reasons and are using it to commit this fraud to steal votes. I think they’ve even stolen them from other Democrats in their own party who should be outraged about this also,” Powell said.
Dominion has links to companies with deep ties to the Washington, D.C. deep state.
A 2014 State of California document indicated that Dominion’s agent of record at that time was Boston lawyer Michael Bevilacqua of Wilmer Hale. Former special prosecutor Robert Mueller works for that firm.
A 2020 filing lists Dominion’s registered agent as Florida-based Cogency Global. Its directors were listed as Hootan Yaghoobzadeh of Staple Street Capital, Stephen Owens, also of Staple Street, and Benjamin Humphreys. Yaghoobzadeh and Owens have past ties to the Soros-backed Carlyle Group.
Federal Election Commission records show Dominion Voting Systems employees donated almost exclusively to Democrats in the 2020 election, with the majority of those donations going to ActBlue, a nonprofit technology organization established in June 2004 that enables left-leaning nonprofits.
Dominion has a lock on a third of the voting machine market in the U.S., including all the battlegrounds states. The firm has come under scrutiny in the days following the Nov. 3 vote with voting problems reported in Michigan and Georgia. The glitches reported thus far only switched votes from Republican to Democrat.
