President Donald Trump’s concerns about Dominion Voting Systems, the election management software system used to tabulate votes in some counties, appear to have some merit.

Democrat Rep. Mark Pocan and Democrat Sens. Elizabeth Warren, Amy Klobuchar and Ron Wyden raised somewhat similar concerns less than a year ago.

Last December the senators sent a public letter to the managing directors of the Staple Street Capital Group concerning their investment in Dominion Voting Systems Corporation, the company behind the election software.

“Some private equity funds operate under a model where they purchase controlling interests in companies and implement drastic cost-cutting measures at the expense of consumers, workers, communities, and taxpayers,” they wrote.

“Recent examples include Toys ‘R’ Us and Shopko. For that reason, we have concerns about the spread and effect of private equity investment in many sectors of the economy, including the election technology industry — an integral part of our nation’s democratic process.”

Regarding election companies like Dominion, the senators were “particularly concerned that secretive and ‘trouble-plagued companies,’ owned by private equity firms and responsible for manufacturing and maintaining voting machines and other election administration equipment, ‘have long skimped on security in favor of convenience,’ leaving voting systems across the country ‘prone to security problems.'”

Does any of this sound familiar? It should.

The senators then proceeded to provide numerous examples of voters being effectively disenfranchised because of improperly maintained election software.

“In 2018 alone ”voters in South Carolina [were] reporting machines that switched their votes after they’d inputted them, scanners [were] rejecting paper ballots in Missouri, and busted machines [were] causing long lines in Indiana.’ In addition, researchers recently uncovered previously undisclosed vulnerabilities in ‘nearly three dozen backend election systems in 10 states,'” they wrote.

“And, just this year, after the Democratic candidate’s electronic tally showed he received an improbable 164 votes out of 55,000 cast in a Pennsylvania state judicial election in 2019, the county’s Republican Chairwoman said, ‘[n]othing went right on Election Day. Everything went wrong. That’s a problem.’ These problems threaten the integrity of our elections and demonstrate the importance of election systems that are strong, durable, and not vulnerable to attack.”

Notice how they quoted a Republican chairwoman …

Less than a year later, another Republican chairwoman — Republican National Committee chair Ronna McDaniel — is facing attacks from Democrats and their media allies for joining the president in also raising concerns over the 2020 election.

At a press conference last week, she and Michigan Republican Party chair Laura Cox claimed that a technical glitch linked to Dominion had caused Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden to receive 6,000 votes in the Great Lakes State that were actually for the president.

In response, Democrats and their media allies began denying the allegation and claiming that the voting discrepancy had occurred because “of an accidental error” by a human being. However, cybersecurity experts like University of Michigan computer science professor J. Alex Halderman cast doubt on this unproven claim.

“[I]t’s plausibly human error, but if a simple screw-up could cause these problems, that sounds like a technical design flaw,” he reportedly said.

He added, “It’s natural to wonder whether similar problems could have occurred in other jurisdictions that use the same machine.”

One would think that discrepancies such as these would at least merit an investigation. Part of the problem though is that conspiracy theorists have taken the actual facts and twisted them to reach conclusions that aren’t actually based in fact — such as the conclusion that millions of Trump votes were deleted. This is false.

What’s not false is that there are some issues with Dominion that need to be addressed. What remains unclear is who exactly is willing to actually address them.

For the time being, one person who has shown a willingness to “check out” Dominion is regular Fox News contributor Geraldo Rivera.

In tweets posted Friday morning, he revealed that he’d just spoken with the president by phone and promised him he’d “check out” Dominion.
