The two investigators behind the “2000 Mules” election fraud film have been arrested by U.S. Marshals, according to reports.
On Friday it was reported that Gregg Phillips and Catherine Engelbrecht were threatened with jail time if they refused to name one of their sources.
The courts are demanding that Phillips and Engelbrecht identify the confidential informant in the Konnech investigation.
As Slay News previously reported, the CEO of the software firm Konnech, Eugene Yu, was arrested by California authorities in early October in connection with “theft of personal data.”
Yu was charged in connection with an investigation of sensitive election worker data being held on servers in China.
The Konnech chief is accused of stealing personal data from LA County election workers.
He is currently in custody in Michigan.
The alleged stolen data belonged to poll workers and was the subject of TrueTheVote’s “PIT” in Arizona last August, where Catherine Engelbrecht and Gregg Phillips singled out the company.
During the PIT conference, Phillips and Engelbrecht alleged they were cooperating with the FBI in Michigan about data being sent overseas by this company.
The investigation quickly started to turn on them after the FBI started to distance itself from the investigation.
On Sunday night, Phillips issued a statement on Truth Social:
This morning Phillips and Engelbrecht were arrested by U.S. Marshals and put in jail.
They are being charged with a process crime – obstruction of justice.

They will be in custody for at least 24 hours.
The documentary “2000 Mules” investigates evidence of widespread voter fraud in the 2020 presidential election.
The movie, by conservative activist Dinesh D’Souza, premiered in May at President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort.
The film makes a number of ballot fraud allegations, including that there was cellphone data showing evidence of the purported “mules” near drop boxes on Election Day.
