Donald Trump’s Election Expert Debunks Election Fraud Claims, Says Lies ‘Hardens People’s Hearts’

Ken Block, the founder of the analytics company used by the Trump campaign to investigate their claims of voter fraud benefiting President Biden in the 2020 election, refuted Trump’s continued claims. Block also revealed that his findings were subpoenaed by investigations into Trump’s alleged election interference.

Ken Block, the election technology expert hired by former President Donald Trump’s 2020 campaign to find alleged voter fraud, again debunked Trump’s claims in a withering op-ed in USA Today.

Block, the founder of Simpatico Software Systems, the analytics company used by Team Trump in the wake of the 2020 election, recently said that after extensive research, his company found no evidence that election fraud benefited President Joe Biden.

But Team Trump still cries fraud

Block blasted Trump’s “steady diet of lies and innuendo.” “The cries that the 2020 election was lost or stolen due to voter fraud continue with no sign of stopping. But if voter fraud had impacted the 2020 election, it would already have been proven,” Block wrote.

In his op-ed in USA Today, Block writes that he was hired shortly after the election to investigate the former president’s claims, with a contract that “obligated us to deliver evidence of voter fraud that could be defended in a court of law.”

Findings were insufficient to challenge the election result

However, the fraud his company found was bipartisan and small, disproving Trump’s claims and failing to “provide a solid basis for a legal challenge to an election result in any of the states we evaluated.”

Block has recently been questioned by the Department of Justice and has previously told news station WPRI-TV of his initial payment of $750,000 by Trump’s campaign to analyze fraud in Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, and Wisconsin, but said his project was broadened to investigate other claims.

Block said in his op-ed that he found “no evidence of voter fraud sufficient to change the outcome of any election” and communicated his findings to Mark Meadows, the former White House Chief of Staff.

Block acknowledged his analysis was also subpoenaed by Special Counsel Jack Smith and Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis, who are investigating alleged election interference by Trump in separate federal and state cases, respectively.

“Those emails and documents show that the voter data available to the campaign contained no evidence of large-scale voter fraud based on data mining and fraud analytics,” Block wrote. “More important, claims of voter fraud made by others were verified as false, including proof of why those claims were disproven.”

Giuliani’s continued lies

“And yet, the cries that the election was lost or stolen due to voter fraud continue with no sign of stopping. Whether a stump speech, outrageous lawsuits like the so-called Kraken cases filed by Sidney Powell, Rudy Giuliani’s lies or the ongoing misguided efforts of people determined to prove the election was stolen, the constant drumbeat hardens people’s hearts and minds to the truth about the 2020 election.”

Trump’s team had honest factions

Block did acknowledge that while many in the campaign pressed ahead with wild conspiracy claims, “the non-reckless side of the campaign did conduct due diligence, wanted to know the honest truth about the data and what it told us, and they did the right thing in communicating that information up the chain.”

Difficult to prove either way

The election technology expert said even if he had found enough fraudulent votes to question Biden’s victory in key battleground states, there would have been no way to determine whether the fraudulent ballots were cast for Biden or Trump.

“We vote anonymously − with good reason. No candidate can credibly claim that a fraudulent vote was credited to their opponent unless the person who cast that vote tells us,” Block wrote. “This means that a candidate trying to use voter fraud as the reason to change an election result cannot show that the fraudulent votes caused their election loss.”
