Pro-Trump Colorado election clerk Tina Peters and her aide indicted by grand jury related to election data breach

Tina Peters, the pro-Trump elections official in Mesa County, Colorado, who has been accused of leaking sensitive voting machine data, was indicted on 10 counts by a Mesa County grand jury related to her alleged role in the election data breach, according to the county's district attorney. Her aide, Belinda Knisley was indicted on six counts related to the breach. Peters was indicted on counts of attempting to influence a public servant, criminal impersonation, conspiracy to commit criminal impersonation, identity theft, first-degree official misconduct, violation of duty, and failing to comply with the secretary of state. Her aide, Knisley, was charged with attempting to influence a public servant, conspiracy to commit criminal impersonation, violation of duty, and failing to comply with the secretary of state. Peters and Knisley turned themselves in, according to authorities. In the indictment, District Attorney Dan Rubinstein said that Peters and Kinsley attempted to convince at least four other public servants to follow a plan to disseminate confidential information from Dominion Voting Systems voting machines — which are not connected to the internet — online, following a "trusted build," which is a high-security software update for the machines.

Colorado Secretary of State Jena Griswold has sued Peters three times, but it was her August 2021 lawsuit accusing Peters of orchestrating the breach that spawned local and national investigations. A grand jury was called after Griswold's lawsuit, and the case will now go to trial. District Attorney Dan Rubinstein said that others could be charged in connection with the breach. In early February of this year, Peters was arrested for resisting a search warrant for her iPad — unrelated to her alleged election data breach. Peters also announced a run for Colorado secretary of state against Griswold during the same month. "The grand jury, randomly selected from the same pool of citizens that elected Clerk Tina Peters and chosen months before any of these alleged offenses occurred, concluded there is probable cause that Clerk Peters and Deputy Clerk Knisley committed crimes," Rubinstein and Attorney General Phil Weiser said in a statement.


Officials who conspire to compromise our election process should receive prison time. I'm sick of these GOP election fascists.
