While it has been made clear by the White House that Sidney Powell is not an official member of the Trump legal team, the well-known attorney continues to work to uncover evidence of potential voter fraud in a number of major battleground states.
Powell, who rose to fame within the MAGA ranks as the firebrand lawyer representing former national security adviser Michael Flynn, her focus over the course of the last several weeks has been on the 2020 election, and her belief that a massive and widespread effort to defeat Donald Trump was at play.
Several of these lawsuits have already been tossed out by state and local judges, but Powell has pressed on, now introducing a hellacious effort in Arizona.
Supporters of President Trump filed suit in federal court Wednesday in their latest bid to throw out the certified popular vote results that awarded Arizona’s 11 electors to Joe Biden.
The lawsuit alleges “widespread ballot fraud,” due in part to Dominion Voting Systems machines used in Maricopa County, which they assert were designed purposely to take votes away from Trump.
Attorney Sidney Powell specifically blames that on Eric Coomer, an executive with the company, and “his visceral and public rage against the current U.S. president.” She said it is part of a criminal conspiracy.
Dominion officials have repeatedly said the company’s software and hardware are secure.
The lawsuit, filed on behalf of Arizona GOP Chairwoman Kelli Ward, among others, also claims poll watchers were unable to adequately monitor that the signatures on envelopes of mail-in ballots were verified. It refers to “biased and partisan Maricopa County poll referees.”
Powell is also part of an effort in Georgia to promote a boycott of the Senate runoff races set for January 5th, insinuating that the Republican candidates involved in that contest haven’t done enough to shed light on the alleged issues of voter fraud in the Peach State.
