This tweet is not getting nearly enough attention. There's a lot going on here:
1) Oltmann admits he leaked the draft that said the election should not be certified 2) Logan says he would not participate in another audit not "because of the left, it's because of the right"

This was really a great catch. I went back and looked at the first place I saw the "decertify" draft pop up: Ann Vandersteel's Telegram channel.
9 minutes before she posted the draft, she welcome's Oltmann as an admin of her channel.
6 minutes later, Oltmann posts the document himself. Note, he didn't forward Vandersteel's message, he posted it directly himself, followed by a message that says "they have been blocking me from sending it"
Something else worth reiterating: Oltmann acknowledges what he shared was a draft multiple times on his podcast.
That did not stop him from claiming that was a "final" copy of the report that had been watered down.
I’ve got a bit more to say about point #2 above but it’s my dogs 16th birthday so my in depth analysis is going to have to wait
Oltmann's out with a new video where he clarifies who leaked what (in a filthy hoodie - Joe, do some laundry my dude). He says there's a "leftist piece of trash" inside Doug Logan's team that leaked the first draft on 9/23.
He then goes on to admit, again, that on 9/24, he leaked the draft that said the election should decertified. Oltmann says that he referred to this as a draft during his appearance at the Reawaken America tour that same day.
Thing is, he shared that draft on 9/24 to his Telegram and referred to it as "the real Arizona election audit report". The filename also says "versionfinal"
tl;dr: the version of the report that calls for decertification was "real" in the sense that it seems to have been a legitimate draft that was written by someone associated with Cyber Ninjas. However, it doesn't seem like it was ever the "final" report as he and others claimed.
Clement’s somehow understands Logan’s statement that he was never aware of the draft to mean “Logan was threatened into watering down the report”. He ends by calling Logan a “squish”.
I love that these guys will basically call for a civil war but refuse to swear.
RE: #2 in the OP - the pattern we've seen so far is that you either fall in line with the pro-audit influencers, or you suffer their wrath.
We've already seen it happen with Karen Fann, and now it's happening to Doug Logan.
Even Wendy Rogers isn't safe.

Maybe Fann and Logan really believed that they were going into the AZ Audit without a predetermined outcome, but that obviously wasn't the case for most of the pro-audit crowd. They thought they were buying a ticket to Trump getting reinstated. And now they want their money back.
The frustrating thing is that Logan earnestly talks about the threats he's received from the right.
But what the pro-audit crowd hears is: "the left are sending him threats as a false flag"
Meanwhile on Telegram...
So let's name names. If you piss off one of these audit influencers, you piss them all off, and they'll sic their crowds after you:
- David Clements
- Joe Oltmann
- Lin Wood
- Jovan Pullitzer
- Matt DePerno
- Ron Watkins
Clements, Wood, and Oltmann are the main offenders.
Collectively they have over 796,000 followers on Telegram, and they frequently forward messages across one another's channels. It almost as if they coordinate messaging...
Like I was saying about Wood…
