This morning, Federal Judge Kenneth Hoyt held True the Vote founder Catherine Engelbrecht and True the Vote investigator Gregg Phillips were arrested and held in contempt of court over their refusal to identify a confidential informant who helped them obtain information that led to the discovery and later, evidence that the E. Lansing, MI based election software company Konnech was storing election-related data on servers in China.
Ivory Hecker, a former Fox News reporter turned independent journalist was on the scene during the hearings in the district court.
“Judge Hoyt orders that Engelbrecht and Phillips be held in custody for a day or more until they bring forth the information they are withholding,” Hecker tweeted. She added, “Judge says he never got a straight answer on who was in the Dallas hotel room January, 2021, and he doesn’t know how many people were there. Judge says the way Phillips and Engelbrecht talked suggests True the Vote did have access to the hacked computer data, though they deny it.
