ITN Show Article: Files Freedom of Information Act With US State Department - 2.2.21
Updated: Feb 5, 2021
An employee by the name of Stefano Serafini is accused of helping facilitate vote manipulation in the Nov. 3 U.S. presidential election. Serafini, along with others, is accused of remotely switching votes from President Trump to Joe Biden on Election Day.
ITN has requested the start date of Serafini’s employment, his end date and whether he is currently collecting a pension from the U.S. government for his work at the Department.
Maria Zack and her organization Nations in Action, a government accountability group, is spearheading efforts to expose the details of the operation. Zack says she knows others who hold the proof Serafini participated in the plot along with officers from various global intelligence agencies, and that operation took place in part at the U.S. Embassy in Rome.
Zack also says Serafini retired shortly before Election Day in a bid to safeguard his pension.
ITN has previously reported that an employee with the same name was entered into the Congressional record in 1997 as beginning with the U.S. foreign service, partially confirming Zack’s claims. A U.S. State Department employee named Stefano Serafini is also listed as having graduated from the National Defense University in 2017 with a concentration in Cybersecurity Leadership.
The discipline trains graduates in advanced cybersecurity functions such as risk analysis, security incident management, continuity of operations, and disaster recovery.
ITN has not been able to confirm whether those two individuals are the same person, nor have we been able to confirm the current employment status of an employee by the name Stefano Serafini with the State Department.
Numerous attempts to contact a Stefano Serafini whose records seem to match the description have gone unanswered.
This story will be updated as developments warrant.
