Many of these unsubstantiated claims come from a case in Antrim County, Michigan, when a reporting typographical error resulted in the county initially giving a landslide vote in favor of Mr. Biden. The bug was soon fixed, but conspiracy theorists have settled on the incident as evidence that the vote was rigged.

Files “have been deleted from the Dominion system in Antrim County. We know for sure, ”Matt DePerno, an attorney who fought to investigate the incident, told Mr. Lindell in the film. “Wow,” replied Mr. Lindell.

There is no evidence that the votes were rigged in the county, and a hand-counted review of the votes in December confirmed the result there.

Mr. Lindell interviewed retired Lieutenant Colonel Phil Waldron, another member of the movement that was struggling to overthrow the elections. Mr. Waldron, who said his military background was related to “information warfare,” made the unsubstantiated claim that the Chinese government invested money in Dominion and therefore has access to its files and data.

“Lots of votes, direct access to Pennsylvania constituencies, county tabulation centers, Wisconsin, Michigan, Nevada, Arizona, Georgia, all direct from overseas, with China being the predominant,” Waldron said.

He also claimed that overseas servers in Germany, Spain, and the UK somehow played a role in manipulating the results. The manipulation, Waldron said, was “part of a coup d’état supported and facilitated by a foreign-threatened nation-state, a hostile nation-state: China.”

Election officials and cybersecurity experts said there was no credible evidence that China helped Mr Biden win the election.
