The FBI has intensified efforts in its investigation of people who contest the results of the 2020 election as the midterm elections are just a few days away.
The FBI is looking into those who claimed that Trump was the real winner and that the election results couldn’t possibly be accurate. The FBI is acting secretly against some Republicans on the grounds that there was a plot on the part of Trump supporters.
One of the actions taken by the FBI was the previously unheard-of search of former President Donald Trump’s Florida property. While the case is currently in court, the former president has not been accused of any wrongdoing.
FBI investigators seized Rep. Scott Perry of Pennsylvania’s phone in August. In a statement sent by his office, Perry stated, “This morning, three FBI agents visited me and took my cell phone while I was traveling with my family. They made no attempt to get in touch with my attorney, who could have arranged for them to use my phone if they had wanted to. According to Reuters, Perry also expressed he is “outraged” at the incident.
Perry is a “person of interest” in the DOJ investigation into whether former President Trump objected to the electoral results since he has supported his fellow Republican, Trump.
Mike Lindell said in September that the FBI had taken his cell phone from a Minnesota Hardee’s fast food outlet. The agents interrogated Lindell regarding a Mesa County clerk and his relationship to Doug Frank, an Ohio professor who has been outspoken about the idea that voting machines have been rigged.
Fox said at the time, “The circumstances of the investigation were unclear. The Justice Department did not immediately respond Tuesday night to a request for comment about the seizure or investigation.”
Fox continued, “The Mesa County breach is just one of several around the country that have concerned election security experts. Authorities are investigating whether unauthorized people were allowed to access voting systems in Georgia and Michigan.”
The FBI then took Doug Frank’s phone, a Cincinatti-based mathematician, chemist, and teacher, in September. In addition to working for Lyndell, Frank claimed to have found the algorithms utilized to manipulate the 2020 election.
In response to inquiries from the Washington Post, Frank texted the newspaper, “I did nothing illegal,”

The Post reported that Frank told the outlet he had met with the Mesa County clerk and “showed her how the election was hacked.” He said he told her that an upcoming Dominion software update could erase data needed to show that the election was stolen, and he relayed to someone in Lindell’s circle her request for technical help in copying that data.
Now, Michael McDonald, the chairman of the Nevada Republican Party, has confirmed to NBC News that federal law enforcement officials seized his phone as part of the probe.
McDonald also said that he recently testified before the House Select Committee investigating the January 6th Capitol riots, although he would not elaborate on what he told the committee. CONTINUE READING…
