“The Minister of Defense must immediately seize, collect, retain and analyze all machines, equipment, electronically stored information and material documents required for storage,” it says in the draft presidential order, Politico reports on Friday.

The draft was written weeks after Donald Trump's controversial election defeat in the 2020 presidential election against Democrat Joe Biden, when many reports of election fraud were received from several sources.

However, the order was never signed.
