And the latest bombshell, reported eons ago and now coming back into focus after the voting machine memo:

On an evening in December of 2020, Patrick Byrne (former Overstock CEO & BF of Maria Butina), Michael Flynn, and Sidney Powell manage to sail past WH security by blind luck, then end up in the Oval Office having screaming matches with other WH staff/lawyers about forcibly overturning elections in six states.
