Hillary Clinton may still actually have a chance at beating Donald Trump and becoming the next President, as new claims have emerged from a group of “experts” who have come forward claiming to have irrefutable evidence that proves the Presidential Election results were rigged in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania.
The group includes attorney John Bonifaz and University of Michigan Center director for Computer Security J. Alex Halderman. They claim that the votes were manipulated by hacking these three states and that there are other states that have probably been hacked too.
If the evidence proves to be legit, the entire Presidential Election results will be over turned.
The Express reports:
The Democratic nominee could still snatch the US Presidency away from Donald Trump after being told to demand a recount in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania by election lawyers and computer scientists in the latest twist to the Presidential race.
The activists – including voting rights attorney John Bonifaz and University of Michigan Center director for Computer Security and Society J. Alex Halderman – called Clinton’s campaign chairman John Podesta and campaign general counsel Marc Elias to talk about their findings last Thursday.
Clinton received seven per cent fewer votes in counties in Wisconsin which used electronic voting machines as opposed to optical scanners or paper ballots, according to the group’s findings.
The former Secretary of State could have lost as many as 30,000 votes in the state if the pattern is to be believed. The 69-year-old lost the vote by just 27,000.
Although it is not proof that the election was rigged, it is a pattern that should have been looked into, the group claim.
Time is running out for Clinton if she were to make a last-ditch bid for the White House, as the deadline to file a vote recount in Wisconsin is Friday; in Pennsylvania is Monday; and in Michigan is next Wednesday, according to the New York Magazine.
Before his stunning victory over Clinton, Trump reportedly claimed the election was “rigged” in favour of his opponent and even admitted may not accept the result of the election – something which is against US Presidential tradition.
During the election, the Russian government hacked the Democrat party’s computer network in a bid to dig up information on Donald Trump in case he becomes the next US President, officials claimed.
Hilary Clinton also reportedly suffered an online attack from Moscow, as Russia tried to bolster its intelligence arm ahead of the Presidential election.
DNC chairman Debbie Wasserman Schultz said: “When we discovered the intrusion, we treated this like the serious incident it is.
