This week, the Georgia secretary of state called on Michigan Cyber Security Professor Dr. J Alex Halderman to release an alleged secret report showing voting machines from the company Dominion Voting had serious flaws. The secretary claims the report proves the 2020 election results should be questioned.

That report has already been released publicly, but was entered as “sealed” in the case this week. The report says that while there are red flags about certain areas of security, there is no reason to question whether the 2020 presidential election was stolen or was filled with fraud.
