(Jacob Bruns, Headline USA) Konnech, a China-linked election software company out of Michigan, has withdrawn its lawsuit against an election integrity watchdog group, the Blaze reported.
Konnech, which licenses election softwares across the country, initially sued Gregg Phillips of the Texas-based voter integrity group True the Vote, but has since dropped the suit.
True the Vote is an election integrity group that helped conservative pundit Dinesh D’Souza create his documentary 2000 Mules, which noted the coordinated vote fraud efforts during the election.
However, Konnech, without explanation, asked Judge Kenneth M. Hoyt to dismiss the case “without prejudice.”
Hoyt initially had both True the Vote founder Catherine Engelbrecht and Phillips thrown in jail on October 31 after they refused to turn over one of their confidants, but he ultimately recused himself from the case in February.
Their source had leaked to them Konnech’s connections to Eugene Yu, founder and CEO of Konnech, Inc., who was arrested with extradition to Los Angeles County on Oct. 5 last year.
Specifically, the source gave True the Vote evidence that the scandal-plagued election software company Konnech had compromised and stored American data in China.
True the Vote released a statement following Konnech’s withdrawal, noting that the meritless lawsuit served only to inconvenience their company.
“Konnech’s litigation was meritless and intended to harass this organization. They have failed. We are evaluating our options with regard to holding them accountable for their unwarranted actions. We believe Konnech dismissed its lawsuit because it saw that it would lose.”
Phillips added that Konnech’s case was “unfounded” from the start.
“While it is encouraging to see progress being made, the serious issues surrounding the spread of misinformation, improper detainment, and judicial misconduct cannot be overlooked,” he added. “Our commitment to seeking justice remains steadfast.”
