FBI Raids Home of Colorado County Clerk In Election Data Breach Investigation

It’s been a busy trip to Colorado for the FBI. As reported earlier, Rep. Lauren Boebert’s former campaign manager’s home was raided by the Bureau. But they also had time to swing by for a raid at the Mesa County Clerk’s house as well in connection with the same investigation.

ColoradoPolitics.com is reporting the FBI carried out a court-ordered search of Tina Peters’ home early Tuesday morning, leaving her “terrified,” Peters said Tuesday night in an appearance on “Lindell TV”, an online channel run by MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell, a Trump supporter and proponent of discredited claims the 2020 election was stolen.

“We executed four federally court-authorized operations today to gather evidence in connection with the investigation into the Mesa County Clerk and Recorder’s Office,” District Attorney Dan Rubinstein told Colorado Politics. “We did so with assistance from the DA’s office from the 21st Judicial District, the Attorney General’s Office, and the FBI.”

As reported by Colorado Politics, Peters is a Republican serving her first term as the county’s chief elections official who was prohibited last month by a Mesa County judge from overseeing the election in a ruling on a lawsuit filed by Colorado Secretary of State Jena Griswold. Griswold alleges Peters and her deputy were involved in an election security breach when they allowed an unauthorized person to participate in a routine update of the county voting system software and then allegedly lied about it as part of a scheme to expose alleged election irregularities.

Griswold ordered Mesa County to replace its voting equipment in August after system passwords showed up in a video posted to right-wing websites. Days later, exact digital copies of the county’s election system hard drive were posted online after Griswold’s staff discovered that 24-hour video surveillance of the election equipment had been turned off, Colorado Politics reports.

Peters is fully immersed in the QAnon conspiracy cult and maintains connections with several high-profile Trump cronies besides Lindell.
