"The grand jury found that there's plausible information that Konnech is storing data on servers in China allegedly," Pedersen said on the Oct. 6 episode of "The Matrixxx Grooove Show" on Brighteon.TV. "The total that we have is 1.8 million. That is the total [amount] of information of individuals that were actually in that Chinese server apparently."
InTheMatrixxx also cited the Oct. 4 arrest of Konnech founder and CEO Eugene Yu in Michigan. The head of the election technology firm was nabbed on suspicion of stealing data on hundreds of Los Angeles County poll workers. Alongside Yu's arrest, computer hard drives and other "digital evidence" were seized by investigators, Fox News reported.
According to the Ingham County Prosecuting Attorney's office, Konnech was required to keep the data in the U.S. with only citizens and permanent residents having access to it. However, the East Lansing, Michigan-based firm stored the data on servers based in China.
He noted that Yu's "damning" arrest is not a conspiracy theory at all. "This should concern every American. It is very damning is this is true, and we think it is allegedly true. You should be scared shaken to your core," Pedersen said.
Townsend agreed, commenting that some people do not understand the gravity of the issue because they are desensitized to what Hollywood and the media feed them. He added that people need to stand back and take a closer look at what is happening to be able to see everything from a different perspective.
Concerned citizens must inform their election board and counties about Konnech
Pedersen mentioned that concerned citizens must inform their election board and counties that use Konnech products about Yu's arrest and the company's use of China-based servers. He also noted that with the poll worker software compromised, this could lead to a poll worker being used to steal the vote for a particular party or candidate.
Townsend stated that they already got video evidence and similar things are already happening. He urged concerned poll workers to call their counties to ask why their poll worker data are in China and show their frustration.
Pedersen also called out Colorado, Florida, California, Indiana, Michigan, Virginia, Montana, Missouri, Texas and Washington D.C. on the program due to their continued use of Konnech election software. He added that Georgia just signed up with Konnech for its elections and called for the deal to be scrapped amid Yu's arrest.
Moreover, Pedersen blasted the New York Times for painting Konnech and Yu as targets of conspiracy theories. Pedersen stressed that this is not a conspiracy or a theory since it is now becoming a fact, because a grand jury found evidence about the data theft. According to the Brighteon.TV host, the data theft involving Konnech is a massive story that the mainstream news cartels will not be able to squish.
