The star witness in one of President Donald Trump's many voter fraud lawsuits went wild in a Michigan courtroom. On Election Day, Melissa Carone claims to have worked a 24-hour shift in IT support for Dominion Voting Systems. A few days after her shift, she filed an affidavit claiming that some ballots were illegally scanned and other ballots were hidden in vans.
After weeks of waiting, Carone arrived in court with a few things to get off her chest. Rocking a blonde updo, librarian like glasses and red lipstick, the Michigan woman began a two-minute lecture for the courtroom. Going back and forth with members of the court, she began making claims of voter fraud without presenting any evidence to back up her statements. At one point, things got so hectic that Rudy Giuliani attempted to intervene, but she wasn't having any of it.
“I know what I saw,” Carone said.
“Everything that happened at that TCF Center was fraud. Every single thing."
Despite her claims that 30,000 ballots were illegally counted, there is no evidence to support that statement. In fact, government officials have said that this election was the most secure in history.
“The November 3rd election was the most secure in American history. There is no evidence that any voting system deleted or lost votes, changed votes, or was in any way compromised," the Department of Homeland Security said.
"To date, we have not seen fraud on a scale that could have affected a different outcome in the election," U.S. Attorney General William Barr said.
Several swing states like Georgia have also recounted ballots within their states and came to the same conclusion as previously reported. As the year comes to a close, Trump's diatribe against the election results is seemingly fading as courts deliver responses to his bevy of lawsuits.
