Dominion 'Server Crash' Locks Officials Out of Georgia Recount
Software problems cause delays as December 2 deadline looms
A Dominion "server crash" has reportedly locked officials out from continuing with the Georgia recount, causing delays as the December 2 deadline approaches.
The mobile server for the newly purchased Dominion Voting Systems crashed and delayed the state's third recount of the presidential election, officials in Georgia’s Fulton County told a local news outlet Sunday.
Technicians from the company “have been dispatched to resolve the issue,” they added.
The Georgia Secretary of State’s office is aware of the efforts to “resolve the problem,” 11Alive.com reported.
The report shows that about 88 percent of the ballots in the state's largest county have been counted and the recount will resume again on Monday.
Democrat nominee Joe Biden appeared to defeat the president by about 13,000 votes in the Peach State, but Trump and his legal team have challenged the results.
President Trump has expressed frustration with state leaders over how both the election and vote count were handled and has been vocal in his criticism of top Republicans in the state.
Trump told Fox News on Sunday that Gov. Brian Kemp has done “absolutely nothing” to question the results and has also called Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger an “enemy of the people” for allowing what he called a “fraudulent system” to persist in the state.
Raffensperger certified the election result on Nov. 2, and Kemp signed off on it.
WSB-TV pointed to an op-ed that Raffensperger wrote last week where he said the election seemed as though it was “wildly successful” and "smooth.”
“This should be something for Georgians to celebrate, whether their favored presidential candidate won or lost,” he wrote.
"For those wondering, mine lost — my family voted for him, donated to him, and are now being thrown under the bus by him."
The 11Alive report said the server that crashed was newly purchased but additional details were not immediately clear.
Trump and his supporters have insisted that he won the election and it is only due to widespread fraud that Biden was declared the winner by the media.
Trump's critics say he clearly lost and has yet to provide evidence to suggest the contrary.
Trump said in an interview Sunday that his Department of Justice has been “missing in action.”
He also questioned the whereabouts of the FBI.
“You would think if you’re in the FBI or Department of Justice, this is the biggest thing you could be looking at,” he said.
"Where are they? I’ve not seen anything."
Last week, rockstar attorney Sidney Powell finally released her hotly-anticipated "Kraken" in the form of two bombshell lawsuits in Georgia and Michigan.
The suits are loaded with evidence of alleged voter fraud from several states and include sworn affidavits from expert witnesses and whistleblowers.
The Texas-based lawyer has released what she termed "the Kraken" - two lawsuits alleging "massive voter fraud" in the presidential election.
Late on Wednesday night, Powell published a 104-page document detailing allegations about Georgia and a 75-page document looking at Michigan.
In the documents - released online at midnight on the eve of Thanksgiving - she alleged the election had been "rigged" to favor Joe Biden, and that foreign powers were involved.
"The #Kraken was just released on #Georgia," Powell tweeted along with a link to the documents on her website.
