US stock market speculator George Soros has appointed a new director to head his Open Society Foundations. Lord Mark Malloch-Brown, a British national, served as chairman of Smartmatic, a company now accused of voter fraud. Many say Smartmatic has links to Dominion, another company involved in the making of electronic voting technologies. Although the left-wing media is trying to refute these claims, Malloch-Brown’s earlier statements suggest otherwise.
Sidney Powell, a former member of US President Donald Trump’s legal team, has repeatedly talked about of a link between Dominion Voting Systems and Smartmatic, two companies that provided electronic voting technology for the US presidential race on 3 November.
“I’m sure they are trying to distance themselves from each other, but the fact is that the Dominion machines run the Smartmatic software or parts of the key code of it, and that is what allows them to manipulate the votes,” Powell told Fox news.
Rudy Giuliani, Trump’s personal attorney told Fox News, that “Dominion is a Canadian company, but all of its software is Smartmatic software.”
The leftist media sought to refute Powell and Giuliani’s claims with so-called “fact-check” articles.
Citing Smartmatic’s communications director, Reuters wrote that “Smartmatic has never provided Dominion Voting Systems with any software, hardware or other technology.” The director also wrote that Dominion is “a fierce competitor to Smartmatic.”
According to CNN, there is no evidence that the voting machines used software developed by Smartmatic. However, the same fact-checking article also describes that there was a relationship between the two companies in the past. The channel refers to an annoucement by Dominion and writes that Smartmatic licensed Dominion machines for use in the Philippines in 2009, but the contract ended in a lawsuit.
Dominion has issued a statement concerning the issue.
“Dominion and Smartmatic are two separate companies that make electronic voting systems. Dominion does not use or license Smartmatic software. Smartmatic has also refuted such claims. Dominion did not acquire Smartmatic and/or its software from Sequoia,” the statement says.
However, statements former Smartmatic chairman Lord Mark Malloch-Brown made years ago appear to go against these leftist media claims.
The British diplomat, a close friend of US stock market speculator George Soros, has recently been appointed to the helm of Soros’s Open Society Foundations.
Open Society Foundations will be guided into the future by Lord Mark Mallock-Brown, an old ally and friend of US stock market speculator George Soros….
Malloch-Brown unveiled the relationship between the two companies in a morning show broadcast on Philippine ABS-CBN television in 2015.
“The fact is, yes, part of our technology is licensed from Dominion, but you tell me a large technology company which isn’t using, in part, licences from other companies. We have a licence for the international use of that particular piece the technology that we employ,” he said.
“So the licence issued by Dominion for you to use as proprietary software, that is a live licence, it’s an active licence, it hasn’t been revoked?” the reporter asked, and received three confirmatory replies from Malloch-Brown.
The claim that the two companies are rivals also appears rather questionable. According to documents obtained by The National Pulse news portal, the the two firms have signed a non-competition agreement, making it – in effect – illegal for the two companies to compete with each other.
