UBS Securities LLC is an investment bank based in Beijing, affiliated with the Swiss financial institution UBS. 75.01% of its capital belongs to four business groups owned by the Chinese political power.


Staple Street Capital, a New York company that acquired Dominion Voting Systems in 2018, received $ 400 million a month before the election, from UBS Securities LLC, controlled by the Chinese Communist Party.


According to data from the United States Securities and Exchange Commission, the SEC, on October 8, Staple Street Capital completed a form by which it became the recipient of an amount of 400 million dollars, through a recipient of sales compensation identified as UBS Securities LLC, which had already carried out a similar transaction in December 2014 worth 200 million.


UBS Securities LLC is an investment bank based in Beijing, affiliated with the Swiss financial institution UBS, which owns a quarter (exactly 24.99%) of its capital. The remaining 75.01% is distributed by four business groups owned by different levels of Chinese political power. The main shareholder is Beijing Guoxiang (33%), state-owned, joined by Guangdong Comm. Group (14.01%), controlled by the Guangdong provincial government, China Guodian (14%) and COFCO Group (14%), both under the direct supervision of SASAC, the State Council Asset Management and Supervision Commission .


When it comes to Dominion's ties to China, UBS Securities LLC's millionaire payment to Staple Street Capital isn't the first connection to come to light in recent weeks. A few days ago, it was known that Andy Huang, the company's infrastructure manager, had previously worked for China Telecom, the telecommunications giant dedicated to controlling the lives of the Chinese that serves as a bad example for some of its Western counterparts.


The importance of Dominion


Whichever way you look at it, Dominion has become a linchpin in the judicial process that led to the US elections. If on November 3, it managed voting systems in 28 states, including Pennsylvania, Georgia, Wisconsin, Michigan, Arizona or Nevada, a month later, together with other companies such as the Barcelona-based Scytl, it is the center of suspicions of fraud, both in strict terms of recount, such as possible foreign interference in the elections, leading to unprecedented criminal consequences in the United States.

CLIFF NOTES OF LETTER


Over the last two decades, the election technology industry has become highly concentrated, with a handful of consolidated vendors controlling the vast majority of the market. In the early 2000s, almost twenty vendors competed in the election technology market.4 Today, three large vendors-Election Systems & Software, Dominion Voting Systems, and Hart InterCivic-collectively provide voting machines and software that facilitate voting for over 90% of all eligible voters in the United States.


Election security experts have noted for years that our nation's election systems and infrastructure are under serious threat. In January 2017, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security designated the United States' election infrastructure as "critical infrastructure" in order to prioritize the protection of our elections and to more effectively assist state and local election officials in addressing these risks. However, voting machines are reportedly falling apart across the country, as vendors neglect to innovate and improve important voting systems, putting our elections at avoidable and increased risk.11 In 2015, election officials in at least 31 states, representing approximately 40 million registered voters, reported that their voting machines needed to be updated, with almost every state "using some machines that are no longer manufactured."12 Moreover, even when state and local officials work on replacing antiquated machines, many continue to "run on old software that will soon be outdated and more vulnerable to hackers


In 2018 alone "voters in South Carolina [were] reporting machines that switched their votes after they'd inputted them, scanners [were] rejecting paper ballots in Missouri, and busted machines [were] causing long lines in Indiana."14 In addition, researchers recently uncovered previously undisclosed vulnerabilities in "nearly three dozen backend election systems in 10 states."15 And, just this year, after the Democratic candidate's electronic tally showed he received an improbable 164 votes out of 55,000 cast in a Pennsylvania state judicial election in 2019, the county's Republican Chairwoman said, " [ n ]othing went right on Election Day. Everything went wrong. That's a problem."16 These problems threaten the integrity of our elections and demonstrate the importance of election systems that are strong, durable, and not vulnerable to attack.
