Phil Waldron's Possible Hand In The Draft Executive Order
We all owe Patrick Byrne a debt of gratitude for not knowing when to shut up
This is an update to a previously reported story
tl;dr: An affidavit provided by Phil Waldron, and shared by Patrick Byrne, indicates that the technical evidence provided in the draft executive order published by Politico likely came from Phil Waldron and/or ASOG.
Over the last day, I’ve done what I do best: Google excerpts from documents to see if I can gather more information about the origin of the doc, or - if I’m lucky - find related documents. My target today: that draft executive order reported by Politico.
After several dead ends, I found myself on this page. I’ve skimmed the page previously, but never paid it much attention. This time I looked closer, and noticed the match for the search phrase was in the middle of what appeared to be an affidavit. I scrolled up to the bio paragraph, but the name was redacted.
My initial hunch was that this was the bio of ASOG’s Phil Waldron, who you might know from the coup powerpoint that surfaced recently. A bit more Googling proved that hunch correct: I found a podcast that featured Waldron as a guest, and the biography they used in the episode summary closely matched the bio in the affidavit on Byrne’s site.
Before I dive into the content of the affidavit, it’s worth noting that I’m not sure it was ever included with any of the lawsuits filed after the 2020 election. Byrne’s site seems to be the only place where it’s published.
Once again, I turned to CopyLeaks to help compare the text of the draft order to the affidavit. While the overall similarity was 26%, a significant amount of the technical evidence in the executive order was either identical to wording in the affidavit, or only had minor changes.
I also compared Waldron’s affidavit to the 22 page memo I discussed in my previous post, and again, while the overall match between both documents was around 20%, they contained many identical or similar statements that I’ve been unable to find elsewhere on the internet.
This particular excerpt further helps us identify Waldron as the individual behind the affidavit. When the 22 page memo references the ASOG report on Antrim, MI, it says
The forensic report prepared for Antrim County, Michigan found that, “the
Dominion Voting System is intentionally and purposefully designed with
inherent errors to create systemic fraud and influence election results”.
The affidavit contains a similar sentence, but instead says
The forensic report we prepared found that “the Dominion Voting System is intentionally and purposefully designed with inherent errors to create systemic fraud and influence election results”.
Since Waldron had been working with ASOG at the time, and the affidavit was written in first-person, it makes sense for him to use ‘we’ when referring to the preparation of the report.
The similarities continue
Why it matters
We know that Patrick Byrne, Sidney Powell, and Phil Waldron (along with ASOG) worked together after the election to collect evidence of supposed voter fraud. We also know that much of that evidence made it into Powell’s Kraken suits.
It would be one thing if this evidence was only ever used in legal challenges, but it’s an entirely different ballpark when it’s being used to justify an executive order that will authorize the seizure of voting machines and activating the national guard. Yet that’s exactly what Powell, Byrne and Waldron tried to do.
After my previous analysis, we know that Sidney Powell was likely behind the draft executive order. And now we have a likely candidate for who was behind the technical justifications included in both the draft and the 22 page memo: Phil Waldron, and the ASOG team working alongside him.
