  1. (C) Constitutional lawyer Tulio Alvarez_, who is leading the Coordinadora's special commission to document the alleged fraud, told reporters August 22 the mathematical phenomena would have been undetectable had it not been for the unprecedented 27 percent abstention rates. The high voter turnout, he claimed, forced many more "topes" to be imposed by the machines than what was previously planned.

From the same:

"El Tope" Some mathematicians looking at the voting machine level note an unusually high recurrence of similar numbers (affecting between 3,000 and 4,000 machines) for the "Si" votes, leading them to conclude that a cap ("tope") had been applied.

Julian Assange is still in jail.

When have we seen a wikileak in 2019 or 2020?

The leaks continue regardless of where Assange was located. Wikileaks isn't some one-man solo venture, fyi.

Show me a drop from 2019 or 2020.

That would shut me up and show I'm wrong.

I wonder if he is in jail for his protection? Maybe not.

He's not well from all the isolation.

I hope he's released before it gets really bad.

This doesn’t prove it’s true it just says a guy in venezuala thought that the same thing happened there and another statistician disagreed and it was swept under the rug.

This isn't a smoking gun. It's just a summary of "conspiracy theories". Yes, it actually says that.
