Scytl Frankfurt servers containing ballot data seized; Trump expected to overturn state results

Recommended Posts

Fact check: Story of Army raid to seize election servers in Germany is false

The claim: The military performed a raid in Germany to seize servers that show Donald Trump won the election

Joe Biden is the president-elect, after winning key battleground states and securing enough electoral votes to win the White House on Nov. 7. A few more state calls brought his total number of electoral votes to 290 — significantly over the 270 votes required to win.

In contrast, President Donald Trump has claimed 232 electoral votes. There are 16 votes remaining, in Georgia, pending a recount — though Biden is in the lead and the result will not change the outcome of the election.

But some users on Facebook claim the military has seized servers in Frankfurt, Germany, that show very different results.

Most of the posts on Facebook reference a post on Parler, a social media platform that has recently grown in popularity among conservatives.

"So our military does a little raid in Germany to retrieve the server where our voting info was routed," the posts read. "After analysis of the server, they discover that this is what the voting outcome actually looks like."

The map attached to the posts shows Trump with a whopping 410 electoral votes and Biden at just 138 electoral votes.

Users on Facebook also shared clips of Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, speaking about the purported raid last week.

"I don't know the truth, I know that there was a German tweet, in German, saying that on Monday, U.S. Army forces went into Scytl and grabbed their server," Gohmert said.

Scytl is a software company based out of Bacelona, Spain, that specializes in election technology.

Earlier in the clip, Gohmert said that its servers contained information that could help establish "how many votes were switched from Republican to Democrat."

Travis Pope, the user who posted the video of Gohmert, told USA TODAY that "Louie Gohmert is about as honest as they come" and that he believes him over "fake news."

George Papadopoulos — a former Trump campaign adviser who was sentenced to 14 days in prison for lying to the FBI — also wrote about the incident on Twitter. But he misstated the company Gohmert had referred to, claiming instead that the servers belonged to Dominion Voting Systems.
