7/ "I think we all have been worried about the hacking of voting machines. But what this story suggests is the potential for HACKING the [Florida] VOTE TABULATION SYSTEMS, where the votes are tallied & how the results are displayed. " - Jeremy Bash, 7:43  https://www.msnbc.com/11th-hour/watch/are-we-ready-for-russia-in-2020-and-what-was-dep-ag-rosenstein-up-to-for-trump-1508790851903

12/ Remember when a forensic analysis found that an ES&S voting system in Pennsylvania had been "remotely accessed" on "multiple occasions" by an unknown computer, and then ES&S & the county shut down further analysis?  https://truthout.org/articles/forensic-analysis-finds-venango-county-pa-evoting-system-remotely-accessed-on-multiple-occasions-by-unknown-computer-2/ 

13/ In 2004, the US CERT released a Cyber Security Bulletin re: Diebold’s GEMS central tabulator, stating that “'a vulnerability exists due to an undocumented backdoor account, which could [allow] a local or remote authenticated user [to] modify votes.'”  https://legacy.tyt.com/2018/08/17/kobachs-kansas-victory-tainted-by-kobachs-election-system/

At 5:00 PM, “Trump was down in eight of the 11 states by five to eight points. The news was devastating. A kill shot.” - 12/6/17 #RemoteAccess  https://www.politico.com/story/2017/12/06/abc-data-trump-campaign-reprimand-284327

21/ ”One of my sources died in a plane crash last night... Mike was getting ready to talk. He was frightened. I am not saying this was a hit nor am I resigned to this simply being an accident either. I am no expert in aviation & ...  https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/northamerica/usa/3885913/George-Bush-aide-dies-in-plane-crash.html

24/ @jhalderm is the cybersecurity election expert who explained again & again that outsiders need not attack individual voting machines bc the centralized election management systems, which include the central tabulators, connect to the internet.

25/ This is the potential scenario that Jeremy Bash spelled out a few days ago on @MSNBC & corroborates at least part of @AlexandraChalup’s bombshell statement.
