Dominion Voting Systems was ripped on Friday by Republican members of a Pennsylvania House committee after the company canceled a scheduled appearance at a hearing to examine allegations of election irregularities.
The last-minute cancellation was panned by Republicans on the State Government Committee who had hoped to ask questions regarding allegations made by President Donald Trump’s legal team that the company used software developed in Venezuela that is designed to steal elections.
“Transparency is key for our election security. Dominion Voting Software is asking us to give them only blind trust. We’re very disappointed in Dominion’s last minute cancelation in today’s hearing,” the Pennsylvania House Republicans tweeted out, quoting Rep. Dawn Keefer.

In a press conference following Dominion’s cancellation, Keefer went through some of the questions she and other Republicans have about the software.
“Were test runs done, conducted before the election? Were they done after the election? Keefer asked. “How do we know?”
“Does Dominion use open-source software so that observers can go in and see exactly what switches are being turned on and turned off? We don’t know,” she continued.

“Transparency is key so if they’re doing this, if they used open-source software, right, we would know what’s going on there. The average observer could take a look to see what that process is,” Keefer said.
“Moreover, how tightly controlled is the source code, and who has control of that source code?” she pressed.
Committee member Rep. Seth Grove also blasted Dominion, noting that had officials showed up at the hearing they could have dispelled growing allegations of vote fraud.
“Instead of running towards the light of honesty and integrity, Dominion Voting Systems retreated to the darkness,” Grove told reporters. “Why?”
“Why would a vendor of public goods fear discussing their product sold to the public for the public good? If Dominion’s products were successful and operated as they were supposed to, why wouldn’t Dominion take the opportunity to publicly review its success?” Grove continued.
“How hard is it to say ‘our ballot machines worked exactly as promised and they are 100 percent accurate’?” he asked, noting that despite being accused of voting irregularities, the company has not released any post-election analytical reports proving tallies were accurate.
“If they have nothing to hide, why are they hiding from us?” Grove said, alleging that the company has disenfranchised the 1.3 million Pennsylvania voters who cast ballots using Dominion machines.
The company “has hung you out to dry and slapped you in your faces,” he continued.
“Not only are Pennsylvanians more skeptical, but the actions of Dominion voting systems last night have lent credibility to their accusers’ accusations,” Grove said, noting further that “to date” Democratic Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar has no plans “to address any concerns” about election integrity.
Sidney Powell and Rudy Giuliani, both lawyers for President Donald Trump’s campaign, have accused Dominion of using software originally designed on behalf of the late Venezuelan leader Hugo Chavez to steal elections.
Both laid out their stunning claims in a Thursday press conference, with Powell claiming that the campaign has several sworn affidavits from witnesses, statisticians, and Dominion whistleblowers to substantiate their allegations.
“I can tell you that the company was started with Venezuelan money in Venezuela for the express purpose of rigging elections for Hugo Chavez,” Powell told Fox Business Network host Maria Bartiromo Friday morning. As of yet, these claims remain unverified.
