channel dominion voting systems answers back to all the fraud allegations against it. hello everyone, welcome to america's news headquarters i'm eric shawn. hello arthel. arthel: hello, everyone prayed i'm arthel neville. tomorrow marks 20 days since the presidential election and most of those days have been filled with voter fraud claims from the trump campaign that election officials across the country dispute and say are not backed up by actual evidence. this as president elect joe biden mulls over his cabinet picks and prepares for a transition to the oval office but let's go to david with the latest life in the justice department good. reporter: good afternoon to you both pretty senior law-enforcement official tells me that as of this morning the fbi is not investigating any widespread cases of a fraud across the country and that's been said, there may be some potential interest if the fbi would get any evidence that would come before the bureau but as of right now, it's not happening.
9:02 am
this also is the justice department has been rather silent on any potential investigations. that being said, team trump is pushing forward rate as of now, there are several lawsuits as we just heard about in different states outstanding legal challenges in georgia, nevada, michigan and pennsylvania arthel, team trump says and no intention to let these go anytime soon. big defeat for the president yesterday and penciling out when a longtime conservative republican judge actually member of the federalist society ruled against the president attempt to stop the syndication of ballots. the president team continues to argue widespread fraud specifically when referring to the dominion voting system but there is no evidence to back up that claim when we've seen pennsylvania republican senator pat toomey out with a statement yesterday quote, with today's decision by judge matthew brown a longtime conservative republican whom i know to be a
9:03 am
fair and unbiased jurors to dismiss the campaign's lawsuit president trump has exhausted all plausible legal options to challenge the results of the presidential race in pennsylvania but the president's legal team insist they will push forward and they will present evidence in front of a judge. the president's attorney jenna, sydney and rudy giuliani claimed evidence exists but we have not seen that evidence. today trump friends and close advisor christie christie made the he's not impressed with his friends legal team or listen. >> the alleged fraud outside the courtroom but when they go inside the courtroom they don't plead fraud and they don't argue fraud. this is where i was concerned about at 2:30 a.m. on wednesday nights. i've been a supporter of the president and i voted for him twice. elections have consequences. we cannot continue to act as if something happened here that didn't happen. you have an obligation to present the evidence and the evidence has not been presented.
9:04 am
reporter: someone who's been oddly silent at least publicly and on camera is attorney general bill barr. i'm at the justice department right now and he put out a memorable several weeks ago to u.s. attorneys, arthel and neville, telling them to invest eight if any evidence comes up and if there is any investigation that is warranted but largely no real movement from the attorney general on these cases. arthel. arthel: david's bond live in the justice department. eric. eric: arthel, one of the claims of election fraud that has been disputed centers on dominion voting systems. the machines are used in they've denied allegations that switched votes foreign or democratic party influence, secret tampering but its responses have done little to dampen the skeptics. even though the head of the homeland security infrastructure security agency christopher krebs was fired for reporting quote, there is no evidence that any voting system deleted or
9:05 am
lost votes, changed votes or was in any way compromised. the president's call that quote, highly inaccurate. with us now is michael steele, possible with washington dc berm strategies which is representing dominion pitt mr. steele, thank you for coming out with me today. first question people want to know, did a dominion machine change one vote from biden to trump or from trump to biden? >> no. this is a nonpartisan american company that did not physically possible for our machines to switch votes from one candidate to the other but let's be clear, our election system is run by local elected officials and nonpartisan poll watchers. we civilly provide a tool to count the ballots and prints and count ballots made there is no way such a massive fraud could have taken place and there are no connections between our company and venezuela, germany, barcelona, kathmandu or whatever the latest conspiracy theory is. eric: how do you know that could not have taken place?
9:06 am
>> it is physically impossible. one of voter votes on a dominion machine they fill out their ballots on the touchscreen and they are given a printed copy which they then give to a local election official for safekeeping. if any electronic interference had taken place the tally reported electronically when not to match the printed ballots. in every case where we've looked at in georgia, all across the country, the printed ballots, the gold standard and election security is mass the electronic tally. eric: is some of the people watching now, they don't believe you. they thank you are line will say of course you will say dominion is not guilty of anything because you represent the company. >> right, while i've got the facts on my side of the president's attorneys will go on to press conferences and on tv and make these crazy allegations and then 30 times they gone to court and they are not offered the scintilla of proof. all i can say is until we would love to see any facts and evidence they have but thus far we have seen none. eric: the president calls your company a quote, radical left company and the software created
9:07 am
for hugo chavez to steal the election of venezuela and that was imported to the united states to seal it for joe biden paid is that true? >> no, we are nonpartisan american company and we no connection to venezuela what so ever. nothing that they are saying is remotely true. eric: argue foreign funded? >> no, we are funded by american capitalists. eric: texas had problems with the machines and they weren't certified. dan patrick, lieutenant governor, called them junk. what was that? >> look, the great thing about her system is that every city gets to certify their equipment protects us being texas is different. they were afraid that our systems were too complex and they chose to go elsewhere. we accept that we don't agree with it and we agree with the 28 other states that our machines operate but we will take another crack at texas before too long. eric: let's drill down exactly how it works.
9:08 am
the poll workers they use cards and codes to access the machine. >> georgia, for example, they checked voter in on an ipad like system and we give them a one-time use card so that when they go to the machine which is basically a smart pen that prints off the responses that they enter they get the right local ballots in the right local races and then they enter their choices, take that printed paper ballot to a local elected official where it is a secured bird there is no way in this process that anyone, foreign or otherwise, could interfere in them substantial weight and change the results. eric: can a poll worker change the codes to vote for or steal the election for joe biden, for example? >> no, if they changed the code, no matter what or poll worker does or talking elected officials and nonpartisan poll watchers the paper ballots wouldn't match the electronic record. again, the gold standard of election scurry away printed paper ballots that the voter
9:09 am
reviews showing how they voted so that we need to go or if we need to go back in a tightly contested race, as we have right now, we can do an audit or a recount and we can physically match a printed ballot to a vote recorded by the electronic machine. eric: that is called the pepper trail. sidney powell is out there saying that the democrats have 35000 votes around the country and when they had a hand recount in georgia the hand recount matched your machines and the dominion of machines so let's say, a poll worker -- >> they keep talking or asking for recount in milwaukee and wisconsin or pennsylvania but we don't have machines in those jurisdictions. in fact, in pennsylvania in 14 counties were dominion machines were used the president 152% of the vote. eric: say that again. >> in the 14 counties of pennsylvania were dominion scenes were use the president one by 52%. eric: could they have been skewed by the biden or
9:10 am
democratic forces to throw their election for president trump? >> we are now in the realm of conspiracies so dark i have no idea even why what were talking about here. all i can tell you is -- they are complaining about we don't have machines. eric: sidney powell and others say they think that some drives could upload material from foreign sources. can a poll worker take a thumb drive and stick it in the machine and fill it up with thousands of votes for joe biden? >> no, the tabulator has no unlocked on drive access or usb ports and remember, these are secured by local elected officials and nonpartisan poll watchers. it is not physically possible to do what they are describing. the machines are what we held air gap and not connected to the internet and it's just not physically possible. eric: are the machines designed with an algorithm that gives more votes joe biden, cindy powell claims they give one and one quarter about to biden, three quarters of a vote to trump so are they skewed or shift votes or are they votes
9:11 am
tabulated in fractions? >> no. this is nonsense and that is not done or possible. again, if someone tried to alter the electronic record the printed paper ballots would not match. it is not possible. again, we've gone back in georgia and other places to match the balance to the electronic tally and they match. there is no widespread fraud in the way they are alleging. eric: did dominion bribe georgia governor bryant camp to throw this election to joe biden, cindy powell calls it a dominion scam? >> so, the argument is the republican governor of georgia and the republican sector of state of georgia took bribes. no, first of all, know that did not have a great second, it doesn't sound even vaguely plausible. the republican elected official, their supporter of the president so why would they want joe biden to be president? those are questions for them to answer but it doesn't strike me as remotely possible. eric: do their claims hold any
9:12 am
water? do they have any legitimacy at all? >> i not yet heard a claim that is anyway legitimate that would substantially alter a single vote. no, we had isolated errors by human actors and interim county michigan which was swiftly corrected. the take away there is the error was spotted on election night and present on the county by 2500 or so votes and i not seen any credible allegations that would impact this election substantially. eric: finally, he been around washington and they will call you a rino because you work for a john weiner and for others, including mr. ryan who was at the board of fox for example and jeb bush and as someone who works in washington and as someone involved in public policy what do these type of allegations due to the integrity and gullibility a belief in our election systems? what do they do to the very
9:13 am
foundation of the republic that we hold so deere? >> look, i'm a conservative republican i worked for conservative causes and candidates and officials for nearly 20 years. i think that allegations are not allegations against dominion voting systems. they are against our elected officials at the state and local levels bipartisan poll watchers in the very system that inspires the confidence that we have in the love of our country is under attack through these allegations and it is all our obligation to defend the truth and to defend democracy and that's what we are trying to do. eric: with those election officials try to steal the election for donald trump or for joe biden? >> i can't imagine that someone would want to be in a position of authority in our election system and in our democracy just to subvert it. i think these are public spirited people and patriots and they are doing their job to the best of their ability to make sure we get accurate,
9:14 am

virus when given to people in the early stages of infection and reduced medical visits for patients. the treatment however is not authorized for folks who are hospitalized or need oxygen. data has shown the antibody cocktail provides little relief for folks with advanced covid-19. regeneron has received $500 million from of the federal government to manufacture and distribute the drug trade health experts believe this could help hold off asserting infections and provide some relief to overwhelming medical systems. >> the pressure on hospitals is the highest it has been a since the beginning of the pandemic with about 1000 hospitals reporting this week that they are critically short on healthcare workers or will be very soon and that number will grow this week. it's a very, very serious moment for the country. reporter: the chief advisor to the trump administrations operation warp speed says it's unfortunate the vaccine process has been politicized.
9:16 am
the doctor told cnn jake tapper that he believes the american people have misunderstood the level of effectiveness the fda requires before a vaccine is approved and disturbed it to the public. >> people just need to measure that here is a problem we have in the problem we no, one-2000 people dying every day, two and a thousand people infected every day and here is the vaccine that can give you almost an insurance against that and we know it is safe. reporter: the doctor says once a vaccine is available in this country he believes enough people will take it for this country to reach herd immunity arthel. arthel: charles watson, thank you for that report. meanwhile, travelers ignoring cdc guidance to stay home for things giving and they are packing airports across the country this weekend, even as health experts warn of an alarming new stage in the corner virus outbreak. christina coleman is live at lax

9:36 am
machine. the trump campaign's legal team is insisting that the recount also include signature matching but that would be virtually impossible to do after people have already voted. that is because signature matching is done on the front end to determine if a person is eligible to vote. once georgians cast their ballots the belts become anonymous. today a biden adviser said she is not concerned the presidents challenges to the election will change the outcome based on what george is a ballot audit last week revealed. take a listen. >> we've seen the republican governor and republican secretary of state in georgia, this week, reaffirm the recount results they are. reaffirm the outcomes that joe biden won the state of georgia. reporter: yesterday supporters of the president marched in front of the georgia capital to protest unproven claims of widespread voter fraud. demonstrators also showed up to affirm georgia's certified election results at times things

filed multiple lawsuits and either been rejected in court or withdrawn those lawsuits and those lawsuits have not provided evidence of widespread fraud or irregularities that would in any way change the outcome of the election. eric: have officials seen any evidence of possible democratic conspiracy to steal the elections through the voting machines or through fake voting? >> no, i mean, the attention on the selection is focused on detroit. detroit is a democratic stronghold in wayne county, biggest county in the state has not voted for our bubbling and for president since 1928. it is no surprise that the democrats in wayne county are voting for joe biden. i mean, president trump earned roughly 7700 votes in the city in 2016 and earned more this time for hearing about 12000500 votes this time around. all of this focus on detroit that the democratic stronghold so it's not a huge supply to people of michigan that wayne county and the city of detroit voted for joe biden over donald
