The disbarment trial of former President Donald Trump’s former attorney and constitutional legal scholar, John Eastman, continued on Tuesday into its fifth week. Eastman’s attorney, Randy Miller, questioned expert witness Garland Favorito, co-founder of Voters Organized for Trusted Election Results in Georgia (VoterGA), who has extensive experience with electronic voting machines and investigating election fraud in Georgia.
Miller first discussed Favorito’s background with electronic voting machines, which goes back to 2002 and includes advising the Georgia General Assembly on them from 2006 to 2019. But much of the day was spent dealing with California bar attorney Duncan Carling objecting to his testimony and documents he was speaking about, Judge Yvette Roland immediately sustaining the objections and frequently objecting herself.
At one point, when Miller asked Favorito (pictured above) to discuss a report authored by the Georgia Legislature, which merely discussed testimony and evidence the officials had received, she asked Carling if he was going to object. Favorito said he relied upon it for his investigative work, but Carling still objected, stating that it could contain hearsay.
Roland refused to allow a report authored by the government’s own witness, Professor Alex Halderman, into evidence. Favorito said he’d relied on it for his own work and reports, but Roland said that wasn’t enough. The report is titled “Security Analysis of Georgia’s ImageCast X Ballot Marking Devices” and was submitted as an exhibit in the lawsuit Curling v. Raffensperger. That lawsuit was based on concerns about the use of electronic voting machines.
