According to reporting by The Washington Post, a second firm hired by the Trump campaign to probe Trump’s claims that there was fraud in the 2020 election said all of Trump’s allegations of fraud were false.
Ken Block, the founder of Simpatico Software Systems, the company hired to investigate allegations of fraud around the country after the 2020 election, told WaPo that every allegation of fraud the company was brought on to investigate “was false.”
Block also revealed he had recently met with Special Counsel Jack Smith, who is the federal investigation into Trump’s efforts to undermine the 2020 election.
Campaign finance records show Trump’s campaign paid Block’s firm about $750,000 a few days after the election.
The Trump campaign hired a similar firm, Berkeley Research Group, to investigate the fraud allegations, and like Simpatico, Berkeley found no evidence of fraud or election theft.
A Trump spokesman did not address the allegations in the Post report but scoffed at its conclusions.
Steven Cheung, a spokesman for Trump, asserted the report was “nothing more than a targeted, politically motivated witch hunt” against Trump to stop American voters “from returning [Trump] to the White House.”
Cheung added that similar to the other “hoaxes” against President Trump, the attempt by WaPo would also fail.
Block did not specify what claims his firm investigated or what methods it used, citing the ongoing investigation by Smith as the reason he couldn’t divulge more information.
Block has repeatedly said publicly that Trump’s claims were false, and he recently sought an injunction to order MyPillow CEO and conservative Mike Lindell to pay the $5 million promise he made to the man who could prove the elections were rigged.
