My VIPs for this week are Catherine Engelbrecht and Gregg Phillips of True the Vote. They have been in the forefront of the fight to prove fraud in the 2020 presidential election and to help secure future elections. They were instrumental in the effort to show that “mules” were used to drop illegal ballots into ballot boxes and throw the election to Joe Biden.
Now Engelbrecht and Phillips have been sent to jail for contempt by Federal Judge Kenneth M. Hoyt in Houston, Texas. The action was taken because the two people would not give up the name of one of their sources, someone that they say is a confidential FBI informant. Joseph MacKinnon at The Blaze posted the following information.
According to the duo, the unnamed informant helped provide them with proof that the scandal-plagued election software company Konnech had compromised and stored American data in China.
The overarching case in which the duo is embroiled concerns their alleged defamation of Konnech.
True the Vote accused Konnech of colluding with the Chinese communist regime, of storing confidential American data on servers in China, and of other wrongdoing.
An interesting item of interest in this whole matter is that Eugene Yu, the founder and CEO of Konnech, was arrested on October 4 and charged on suspicion of data theft. The reason given is that he had allegedly stored “critical information that [US election] workers provided on servers in China.” He was also hit with additional charges for grand theft by embezzlement of funds exceeding $2.6 million. In other words, he was arrested and charged for committing some of the crimes that Engelbrecht and Phillips accused him of doing. I think that the judge should have recognized this fact.
Konnech filed the defamation lawsuit against True the Vote on September 12, approximately three weeks prior to the arrest of Yu. True the Vote accused Konnech of being “owned by the Chinese Communist Party” as well as being involved in “subversion of our elections.” There appears to be a problem for Konnech because the company has contracts to “provide election logistics software for voting districts across the country” in the 2022 midterm elections. Who wants to hire a company that is owned by Communist China?
Engelbrecht and Phillips were sent to jail on Monday and will remain there until they are willing to give up the name of their informant. They do not seem willing to do so. Therefore, it looks like a standoff. They are of the same patriotic caliber as Nathan Hale who was captured and sentenced to death for spying against Great Britain. His last words were, “I only regret that I have but one life to give for my country.”
