Facts:

    The website Nations In Action released an affidavit and related article alleging that the defense firm Leonardo ordered an employee to hack the US elections. The affidavit was written and signed, not by the alleged hacker, but by Italian law professor Alifio D’Urso. D’Urso testifies that during depositions, Arturo D’Elia stated that under instruction and direction of US persons at the Embassy in Italy, he was ordered to direct Leonardo’s operations satellites to switch votes from Trump to Biden. The affidavit can be seen below.

    USA Today ran a fact check on the story. They did not mention D’Urso in any form, even though it is his affidavit at the center of the conflict. Nor did USA today speak with anyone from the Italian embassy.

    USA Today did decide based upon evidence-primarily cited in November, that these allegations were not plausible.


    Right

    Those on the far right are tweeting #italydidit with gusto. At the same time, there have not been any main-stream right-wing sources that have made a determination on the credibility of the story. Right-wing figures like Angela Stanton and Lara Logan seem to be questioning if #Italydidit.

    In the wake of the Capital Protests, the Right is mostly silent in regards to these accusations, likely for fear of platform banning–as President Trump has been banned from Twitter and Facebook, and others are being purged by the totalitarian regime of technocrats.


    LUCID THOUGHTS

    We have researched the claims, as much as we can. D’Urso is a legitimate Italian law professor, but there is no video testimony of Professor D’Urso making any such statement. Lucid can find no corroborating evidence in the Italian press. If such a statement was made, it needs to be supported by video evidence of Italian public figures supporting these statements not just Americans.

    Finally, unlike the current digital book burning that is happening through Twitter and Facebook, with the cancelling of opposing view-points. We at Lucid welcome hearty debate over facts and theory. We believe that our readers are intelligent enough to make up their minds, and do not need to be treated as children. While, this theory is plausible, there is not enough evidence for us to give the claims any veracity.
