In a statement made on Thursday by the LA County District Attorney’s (DA) Office, LA DA Attorney George Gascón dropped all criminal charges levied against Eugene Yu, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the election management software company Konnech Inc,.
Yu was arrested on October 4th and charged with conspiracy to commit a crime and embezzlement of public funds after it was discovered that election data was stored on servers located in China.
An investigation into Yu has revealed that the Michigan-based CEO, originally from China, has direct connections to the People’s Republic of China (PRC), the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the Department of Defense (DOD), Blackrock Investment Institute, and the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).
The Director of the Bureau of Communications for the LA County DA Office, Tiffany Blacknell, spoke with National File on Thursday.
“We have asked the court to dismiss the case against Eugene Yu without prejudice. We are concerned about both the pace of the investigation and the potential bias in the presentation and investigation of the evidence. As a result, we have decided to ask the court to dismiss the current case, and alert the public in order to ensure transparency in this process,” Blacknell said.
It was announced in January 2020 that Tiffany Townend Blacknell is part of Los Angeles District Attorney George Gascón’s Public Policy Committee.
“We have assembled a new team with significant cyber security experience to determine whether any criminal activity occurred. We have also engaged an independent expert to continue to review the evidence. Our office has an ongoing obligation to continually reassess the case in light of all the available evidence,” Blacknell asserted.
Gascón is one of several district attorneys nationwide who are financially backed by Jewish multi-billionaire, George Soros.
“We currently have an immense volume of digital data that will define this case, but the processing of the data will take months. We would not be able to fairly and accurately process and present all of that evidence within the statutory timeframes,” Blacknell added.
“For all the aforementioned [reasons], it is in the interest of justice to dismiss the current prosecution until all of the available evidence can be processed and understood,” she said.
