I wrote briefly about HAMMER/SCORECARD before. At the time, I reserved judgement; I found the claims plausible but specific documentary evidence completely absent. While general ideas about voting machine issues were well known and have yet to be investigated, the specific claims about HAMMER/SCORECARD appear to have collapsed, and I think we can now consider them likely false at least with respect to election manipulation under those names.
One yellow flag for me was that everything about HAMMER/SCORECARD seemed to come from Montgomery or people close to him. Montgomery's claims rested basically on his personal credibility which was mixed at best, and the credibility he appropriated by association with others. Most of that credibility came from McInerney initially, and some from Michael Flynn and Sidney Powell. At the time, I noticed that Powell would speak freely about HAMMER/SCORECARD -- but then stopped, and focused instead on Dominion and an alleged whistleblower. Flynn, on the other hand, appeared as a guest on a few podcasts that also had McInerney talking about HAMMER/SCORECARD. But Flynn did not make those claims or even share microphone time with those making them. That seemed odd.
We now appear to have strong evidence that HAMMER/SCORECARD is baseless (part 1, part 2).
This does not necessarily invalidate other claims about vote-switching by machines, particularly after the forensic examination of voting machines in Antrim county turned up notable anomalies. However, the specific claims originating from Montgomery appear discredited.
