A 2021 documentary by former Overstock CEO Patrick Byrne dives into the allegations of election fraud during the 2020 presidential election.

The film titled The Deep Rig was based on Byrne’s book The Deep Rig: How Election Fraud Cost Donald J. Trump the White House, By a Man Who did not Vote for Him: (Or what to send friends who ask, “Why do you doubt the integrity of Election 2020?”). The documentary evaluates the reasoning behind the arguments that election fraud may have been possible during the election.

Byrne claims in the film that to sway the election result, election fraud would only be necessary in six cities: Atlanta, Detroit, Las Vegas, Milwaukee, Philadelphia, and Phoenix.

He notes that shutdowns occurred in many of these cities during the ballot counting process, with large amounts of ballots being “found” during the shutdowns that favored President Joe Biden.

“To steal the nation, you don’t really need to cheat across the nation. By cheating in those cities, you’re flipping the swing states, which flips the electoral college, which flips the country. So, to steal the country, you don’t really need to cheat across the country. You just need to cheat like crazy in these six cities,” he claimed.

In the film, constitutional attorney Matthew DePerno read through a report by Allied Security Operations Group discussing the 2020 election and the use of Dominion Voting System polling places in Michigan.

“We conclude that the Dominion Voting System is intentionally and purposefully designed with inherent errors to create systemic fraud and influence election results,” the report reads. “The system intentionally generates an enormously high number of ballot errors. The electronic ballot errors are then transferred for adjudication. The intentional errors lead to bulk adjudication of ballots with no oversight, no transparency, and no audit trail. This leads to voter or election fraud.”

However, while suggesting that voter fraud was possible, the documentary did not provide any evidence that it had occurred.

In addition to discussing the events of the 2020 election, The Deep Rig also evaluates what steps can be taken to avoid election fraud in future elections. The most substantial step someone can take is getting involved, as former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn said in the film. Volunteers can help to oversee the voting process to ensure its integrity.

Despite the claims made by Byrne and director Roger R. Richards in the film, there has reportedly been no substantial verified evidence proving fraud was committed during the 2020 presidential election.

For example, an audit of Maricopa County, performed by the Florida-based cybersecurity company Cyber Ninjas Inc., claimed that there were irregularities in the 2020 election, but investigators with the Arizona Attorney General’s Office allegedly debunked those claims.

A memo sent to Division Chief John Johnson from the Special Investigations Section of the Arizona Attorney General’s Office claims that Cyber Ninjas CEO Doug Logan used unreliable publicly available databases that are “known by law enforcement agencies to be unreliable and prone to error to collect and report his data.”

The investigators claimed that members of the team spent more than 10,000 hours evaluating allegations made by Cyber Ninjas and other high-profile companies and elected officials, but there was no evidence of fraud found based on the claims made.

“In each instance, the information provided by [Cyber Ninjas] was inaccurate and false. Of the dead voters list, no one on the list of dead voters was dead, nor had they voted. With regards to double voting, there was one instance out of the thousands of alleged instances,” the memo reads.

“In each instance and in each matter, the aforementioned parties did not provide any evidence to support their allegations. The information that was provided was speculative in many instances and, when investigated by our agents and support staff, was found to be inaccurate,” the memo adds.
