Some of you may remember that we were reporting on this late last year….
An Italian defense company known as “Leonardo” came under fire last year for allegedly taking part in the massive voter fraud which occurred here in The U.S. during the 2020 election.
The fraud is said to have taken place remotely, through the defense satellites owned by this company.
According to some, this was a very hot topic in Italy at the time, and it was even mentioned as one of the reasons in the long list of complaints which eventually led to a new government in Italy.
No mention of it here on mainstream media though!
New reports are now alleging that former Trump Chief of Staff Mark Meadows wanted The DOJ to investigate this claim, but they refused to do so.
They didn’t really give any reasons other than the claims being ‘baseless’, but we have all heard that line used before.
I wonder why The DOJ refused to investigate this issue, it would seem like this would be a huge deal, right?
Here is what was recently revealed:
Look who was the first person to react to Italygate. The Romans would say "excusatio non petita, accusatio manifesta", which means unsolicited excuse, manifest accusation. However, Renzi is just the tip of the iceberg. 1/2 pic.twitter.com/VHuP7X5g3c

Trump supporters did NOT invent "Italygate", it was all on the news! Why don't you come back when you know actually know who did?

The Hill reports:
The Times said that it obtained five emails from December and January between Meadows and Jeffrey Rosen, the acting attorney general at the time, showing Meadows pressing the DOJ head to look at multiple election fraud claims that were circling on the internet.
The debunked theories Meadows reportedly asked Rosen to investigate in the emails included one that said voting machines were remotely controlled by people in Italy with military technology that were able to switch votes from former President Trump to Biden.
According to the emails cited by The Times, Rosen said he refused to entertain the theories and refused to set up a meeting between the FBI and a man who was pushing the Italy conspiracy theory, known as “Italygate.”

The Guardian gave the typical left wing perspective:
The academic and author Norman Ornstein said pushing the Italygate conspiracy theory made Meadows an “unAmerican traitor to our fundamental values [who] does not belong in a civil and democratic society or political system.”
The emails were discovered by the Senate judiciary committee.
In a statement, the Democratic committee chairman, Dick Durbin of Illinois, said: “This new evidence underscores the depths of the White House’s efforts to co-opt the department and influence the electoral vote certification.
“I will demand all evidence of Trump’s efforts to weaponize the justice department in his election subversion scheme.”
