Congressional investigators looking into the Jan. 6, 2021 riots on Capitol Hill have uncovered a drafted, but never issued, Executive Order directing the U.S. military to seize all voting machines nationwide and appointing a special counsel to investigate whether the 2020 presidential election was stolen.

It does not appear from initial reports Trump ever approved, saw or even knew of the draft document, which mirrors claims by attorney Sidney Powell, who briefly represented Trump in election-related lawsuits and wanted to be appointed to investigate alleged mass voting fraud using computer algorithms.

Read the draft Executive Order: https://www.politico.com/f/?id=0000017e-7db3-d1fc-ad7f-fff3fd720000

The draft Executive Order cites a disputed audit of election results in a Michigan county to claim the election results some Biden-won states was fraudulent, and accuses the voting software company Dominion of altering election results to benefit Biden.

Dominion is suing Powell and others for making that claim, arguing it is false and defamatory.

The Order directs the U.S. military to “seize, collect, retain and analyze all machines, equipment, electronically stored information, and material records required for retention,” so the Defense Secretary could issue an “assessment” of the election after 60 days – after the established Jan. 20 date for inaugurating Biden.

It also orders the “appointment of a Special Counsel to oversee this operation and institute all criminal and civil proceedings as appropriate based on the evidence collected and provided all resources necessary to carry out her duties consistent with federal laws and the Constitution.”

That is presumed to be a reference to Powell, who suggested such an appointment and may have drafted the Order.

The Order also makes reference to a top-secret memorandum.  POLITICO reports that “suggests that [the author] had access to information about sensitive government secrets.”

POLITICO reports investigators also found a draft speech titled “Remarks on National Healing,” which condemned the actions of Trump supporters on Jan. 6.

“Together, the two documents point to the wildly divergent perspectives of White House advisers and allies during Trump’s frenetic final weeks in office,” POLITICO reports.
