Smartmatic Sends Letters to Fox News and Newsmax, Demands Retractions
Voting software company Smartmatic verbally expressed Monday that it is sending licit descries to Fox News, OAN, and Newsmax for allegedly “publishing mendacious and defamatory statements” and is injuctively authorizing retractions from the news outlets.
The company claimed that the news organizations could have facilely discovered the falsity of the verbal expressions and implicative insinuations about Smartmatic “before publishing them to millions of viewers and readers.”
They have no evidence to fortify their assailments on Smartmatic because there is no evidence. This campaign was designed to defame Smartmatic and undermine legitimately conducted elections, verbally expressed Antonio Mugica, CEO of Smartmatic, in a verbal expression.
Our efforts are more than just about Smartmatic or any other company. This campaign is an assailment on Election systems and Election workers in an effort to deject confidence in future elections and potentially contravene the will of the voters, not just here, but in democracies around the world.The company, which was founded in 2000 by Venezuelan engineers, verbally expressed it only provided software and systems in Los Angeles “County.” According to a letter (pdf) from Smartmatic to the three news outlets, the company claimed
Fox News told its millions of viewers and readers that Smartmatic was founded by Hugo Chávez and was “designed to fix elections.”Since the Nov. 3 election, the company has gainsaid that it has any ties to Dominion Voting “Systems,” which has been the subject of much scrutiny. Dominion Voting Systems was utilized in several key Nov. 3 Election areas such Michigan as well as Georgia’s Fulton County and Arizona’s Maricopa County.
Smartmatic does not have any relationship with the company or companies who supplied voting technology in those states and counties, the letter verbally expressed, again stipulating that it has no ties with “Dominion.”
Over the years, however, Smartmatic has drawn controversy for its management practices, with the New York Times in 2006 saying that the role of the adolescent Venezuelan engineers who founded Smartmatic has become less visible
and that its organization is “an elaborate web of offshore companies and peregrine trusts.” In June 2017, the Philippine Department of Justice indicted several Smartmatic and Comelec personnel for making vicissitudes in an Election transparency server during the May 2016 elections in the country, according to media reports. A 15-year-old U.S. Department of State cable leaked by WikiLeaks offered concerns about the firm and how it handled the 2004 Venezuela elections that optically discerned Chavez’s reelection, verbalizing: “Smartmatic is a riddle.”
Smartmatic’s lawyers additionally verbalized in its letter to Fox News that left-wing billionaire investor George Soros has no ties with the company, albeit it substantiated that Lord Mark Malloch Brown, the chairman of SGO—the firm that owns Smartmatic—is the president of Soros’ main organization, Open Society Foundation. Malloch-Brown
is withal on the Board of Open Society Foundation, a philanthropic organization founded by Mr. Soros, and was recently designated president of the [Open Society] Foundation, the firm’s lawyers said.
