Pro-Trump activist said he was working to hack Dominion machines

But antifa is not an organization — it’s a term for anti-fascist activists who embrace confrontational and sometimes violent tactics at street protests — nor was there any recording of such a conversation. Powell, Giuliani, and Oltmann have all been sued for defamation over the claim. Those comments were based on the testimony of Oltmann, who said that in September 2020 he had managed to infiltrate an “antifa” conference call with Coomer. But in his January 22 email to Powell, released as part of that defamation lawsuit, Oltmann said he was working on another project. “You also need to be aware of what we are doing in Colorado in gaining access to the Dominion systems under the radar,” he wrote. “We have several county clerks cooperating. Need to settle down the chaos so you can get a grasp on all of the information.”

At a November press conference alongside Rudy Giuliani, Powell said Coomer had been “recorded in a conversation with antifa members saying that he had the election rigged for Mr. Biden.”  In an email to Sidney Powell — a lawyer who helped the Trump campaign try to overturn the former president’s November loss, work for which she has since been legally sanctioned — Joe Oltmann, a businessperson who founded the activist group FEC United, wrote that it would be a “good idea to connect” to further discuss his claims about Eric Coomer, an employee at Dominion Voting Systems.

“A vicious, vicious man,” Giuliani added. Two days after President Joe Biden was sworn into office, a pro-Trump activist from Colorado was not giving up on the hunt for evidence that there was a conspiracy to steal the 2020 election. And he was going to prove it, he said, with a vast right-wing conspiracy of his own.

The Colorado Times Recorder was the first to connect Oltmann’s purported conspiracy with Peters. But Oltmann denied that she was one of the clerks he was referencing. “I will come for you and the rest of your shill Antifa terrorists,” he wrote in an email to the outlet. If Oltmann collaborated with anyone, he’s not saying. He didn’t respond to a request for comment. Insider

In an email sent on January 22, Joe Oltmann told Sidney Powell he was working with county clerks in Colorado to gain “access” to Dominion voting machines. That assertion has raised eyebrows in the wake of one Colorado county clerk appearing to do just that. Mesa County clerk Tina Peters is under investigation over the unauthorized access of a Dominion voting machine. Source code from the machine was posted online by a QAnon conspiracy theorist, and Peters herself traveled to an election-conspiracy conference hosted by Mike Lindell, MyPillow’s founder, where she boasted of having uncovered fraud in a state that President Biden won by a 13.5% margin.
