Huge story, very early days.

Our nation's survival as a free Republic demands we get to the bottom of this.


While we do not know who is speaking the truth in this messy story, the FBI does — and its silence is horrifying.

Please click through to read this in its entirety.


Developments over the last month in two cases, one criminal and one civil, involving the election-management software company Konnech and its CEO Eugene Yu, reveal the FBI remains mired in malfeasance.

Either the FBI has abandoned multiple confidential human sources and discarded an 18-month investigation into evidence that Yu maintained the personal information of tens of thousands of American election workers on a server in China, or the bureau has allowed Yu to be arrested for crimes he did not commit and permitted the innocent American to be branded a felon and traitor.

While at this point the public cannot tell which scenario is true, the Department of Justice and the FBI know, and their failure either to charge Yu (or provide the L.A. district attorney’s office with confirmation of the alleged crimes) or to clear him represents another blot on the disgraced agency’s name.

Here’s what you need to know to understand the brewing scandal.

Konnech Provides Election Logistics Software


Konnech is a Michigan corporation founded by Yu, a Chinese national but an American citizen. According to court filings, “Konnech provides governmental entities in the U.S. with an election logistics software product called PollChief which those governmental entities use to recruit, train and schedule poll workers; coordinate the distribution of equipment and supplies to polling places; and dispatch support personnel to address technical and other issues.” The PollChief system “requires that workers submit personal identifying information, which is retained by the Konnech.”

Because Konnech obtains sensitive personal information for election workers, it is bound by contract to safeguard that data including — in some contracts, such as one entered with Los Angeles County — by storing the data physically in the United States and not providing individuals outside the country access to that data.


True the Vote Investigates Konnech


True the Vote is a nonprofit headquartered in Texas that describes itself as “the nation’s leading voters’ rights and election integrity organization.” Catherine Engelbrecht founded True the Vote, and Gregg Phillips, a former board member, works closely with her.

According to Engelbrecht, after 2020 she became “interested in the fundamental underpinnings” of the “nuts and bolts” of staging and deploying an election cycle. So, True the Vote began to file open records requests with counties and discovered that Konnech provided the PollChief software to scores of municipalities via contracts that required safeguarding of the election workers’ data.


True the Vote Claims Konnech Data Maintained on Chinese Server


Engelbrecht claims she asked Phillips “to take a deeper dive doing some basic tests … around the very basic security of the software itself and how it was managing the highly private and secure or sensitive data that it was responsible for.” Phillips claims True the Vote used some open-source tools, specifically one called Binary Edge, and soon realized that one particular IP address related to all of the software.

Phillips further claims that all the information on the PollChief software is rolled into a webpage. For instance, for Fairfax County, Virginia, the website would be “voteforfairfax.com,” or for Boston, “voteforboston.com.” These webpages were all over the country, Phillips says. And what Binary Edge does, Phillips claims, is “not only tells you what URLs resolved there,” but also “tells you where it lives.”

Phillips claims he tracked down the server and discovered it “lives” “on the main Unicom backbone in China.” True the Vote claims that data from this company and the Konnech app’s URLs live there too.


January 2021 Meeting with CHS in Dallas


In addition to discovering the URLs purportedly “living” on a server in China, Phillips says an individual named Mike Hasson contacted him about data Hasson claimed to have accessed from an unsecured server in China. Phillips further claims Hasson “approached” True the Vote with his discovery, although Phillips portrayed the source of the China server data differently during a podcast, claiming “it came to me from some of my analysts.”

Phillips testified in court proceedings that he met with Hasson and another unnamed third party in a Dallas hotel in January of 2021 and that, during that meeting, Hasson hooked his laptop to a TV screen and displayed “enormous amounts of data (he was told 350 TB) on a server located in China, some of it including sensitive data on American poll workers.” Among other data, Phillips claims “there are 43,000 records of Los Angeles poll workers that are on this list” of data found on the China server.


DNI and FBI Provided Evidence Related to Konnech


Phillips maintains that the morning after the meeting with Hasson and another unnamed individual in Dallas, Phillips drove to Houston to meet Engelbrecht. Believing the data proved significant “from a national security perspective,” they “immediately made a complaint to the DNI,” or the director of national intelligence. Then, on Monday, they filed a formal complaint with the FBI.

Phillips claims he provided the FBI with the data he and True the Vote had pulled regarding URLs and the results of the Binary Edge research. According to Phillips’ testimony, he did not provide the data downloaded from the Chinese server to the FBI; rather, “Mike [Hasson] subsequently transmitted the information to the FBI.” Phillips also attested in an affidavit that to the best of his knowledge the only individuals with “possession, custody, or control” of the server data, beyond Hasson, were FBI agents Bobby Nyugen and/or Kevin McKenna.

While Phillips testified in court documents that Hasson provided the Chinese server data to the FBI, his original attorney — since replaced — represented that Phillips had given that data to the FBI. Phillips also admits he does not remember if Hasson provided him with a copy of the China server data.
