US elections stolen? I'll explain why everything is unclear: Dominon Voting Systems Software

 The President of the United States Donald Trump insists on denouncing fraud and irregularities that would have stained the elections of last November 3, whose victory was attributed by the major U.S. media to the Democratic candidate, Joe Biden. 

 Some social media users have tried to connect Dominion and Smartmatic through a company owned by both companies. 

Smartmatic bought the voting machine company Sequoia Voting Systems in 2005, but sold it two years later after objections were raised about its partnership with a company in which the Venezuelan government had invested. 

Three years later, Dominion acquired Sequoia. 

 Electoral security experts say that it is difficult to know for sure whether a Sequoia code can be used in Dominion's software due to the limited transparency of the industry but in fact the link exists.

Both Dominion and Smartmatic say they do not use each other's software, but it is their word.

 Dominion Voting Systems, one of the most used election technology companies in the United States, is owned by Smartmatic through an intermediary company called Indra.

Dominion Voting Systems, a Canadian company that produces the software used to count ballots in 28 states, including some decisive for the outcome of the election. 

 Dominion is a company owned by another company called Smartmatic through an intermediary company called Indra," Giuliani told Fox Business presenter Lou Dobbs in an interview on November 12.

 "Dominion is a Canadian company but all its software is Smartmatic.

 "Dominion, for example, is not a Canadian company. Since 2018 it is majority owned by Staple Street Capital, a private equity firm in New York. And both Dominion and Smartmatic have made statements that Smartmatic does not own Dominion or provide any software or equipment.Dominion Voting Systems has rejected the accusation of manipulating the elections to win Biden and has also denied having among its owners the husband of the Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi, Paul, as claimed by the Republicans.

 Dominion's software had already been the subject of controversy during the June 9 primary in Georgia, one of the key states that ended up at the center of legal challenges by Trump's election committee. 

Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger announced the purchase of the system for $106 million in July 2019, despite the fact that several critics already observed that the system presented some vulnerabilities related to the security of the ballot. 

Among them is Harri Hursti, an expert on the subject who described the problems encountered in the primaries on August 24, more than two months before the presidential election.

 According to Hursti, "the configuration of the software for scanning and tabulation of votes, to determine which ballots to count, is likely to intentionally exclude some votes from the ballot"; Dominion denies the contacts with Smartmatic and alleged Venezuelan origins of its systems. 

According to the Washington Times, however, Smartmatic was actually founded by three Venezuelan engineers in Delaware, based in Boca Raton, Florida.

 In 2004, the company acquired control of Bizta, a company specializing in electronic voting, owned by the Venezuelan government. The following year Smartmatic acquired Sequoia, one of the leading US companies in the automated voting systems sector.

 As early as May 2006, Democratic Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney from New York wrote to then Treasury Secretary John Snow to investigate the Venezuelan government's influence in US voting systems.
