Nov. Nov. 26 (UPI) – Prominent attorney Sidney Powell, whom the Trump campaign recently distanced itself from, filed typo lawsuits in Georgia and Michigan, asking the courts to confirm that President Donald Trump won her election on widely discredited allegations of electoral fraud.
Complaints filed late Wednesday, citing witnesses, experts and “statistical anomalies and mathematical impossibilities” state that a widespread scheme was carried out with the intent to fraudulently manipulate the number of votes to target Trump’s Democratic challenger, former Vice President and the current Elected President Joe Biden to elect.
“The fraud was carried out by many means, but the most fundamentally disturbing, insidious, and outrageous ploy was to systematically adapt the old-fashioned ‘ballot box’,” both complaints state.
Powell names Michigan’s Democratic Governor Gretchen Whitmer and Georgia’s Republican Governor Brian Kemp, along with their administrations and interested electoral officials, as defendants in a case that depends heavily on states’ use of voting software and hardware supported by Dominion Voting Systems Corp. getting produced.
Widely discredited claims are cited in court cases that devices and software used in the states helped former Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, who died in 2013, never lose an election and manipulate votes in Biden’s favor.
On Thursday, Dominion vehemently denied all of Powell’s allegations of typing and spelling errors in what he described as “very gross” legal proceedings, stating that it was not possible for the machines to gain votes by hacking, tampering with the software, or manipulated by other means.
“The allegations contained in the draft complaint are unfounded, pointless, physically impossible and are not supported by any evidence,” the Denver-based company said in a statement. “We stand with the elected officials of the state and local authorities as well as the volunteers of the non-partisan elections that this suit is maliciously malicious.”
Dominion also states that it has no ties to Venezuela and did not vote in any of its elections. It has also been said that it was founded in Toronto, Canada, not by oligarchs and dictators as the lawsuit claims.
The Trump campaign revealed that Powell was no longer on her legal team, where she made similar claims about the voting machines, on Sunday days after she appeared alongside Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani.
Trump has not yet conceded the election defeat and continues to spread widely discredited claims of electoral fraud, even after a coalition of government and election officials said earlier this month that “the November 3rd election was the safest in American history.”
“There is no evidence that a voting system deleted or lost votes, changed votes, or compromised in any way,” said a statement from the Department of Homeland Security’s Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Agency.
The lawsuits, filed late Wednesday, ask the courts to instruct states to de-certify their election results and name Trump the winner of their elections, as well as to confiscate all voting machines used and not certify any votes they tab.
