Sidney Powell Files Lawsuit in Georgia Alleging ‘Massive Election Fraud’

BY MIMI NGUYEN LY

Attorney Sidney Powell filed a federal lawsuit late Wednesday alleging “massive election fraud” and multiple violations of the Constitution and Georgia’s state laws in the 2020 general election, as well as issues pertaining to Dominion Voting Systems.

The civil action alleges that the purpose of the scheme was for “illegally and fraudulently manipulating the vote count to make certain the election of Joe Biden as president of the United States.” A similar separate suit was filed in Michigan.

The Georgia suit (pdf) was filed in the U.S. District Court Northern District of Georgia Atlanta Division against Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp, Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, and other election officials.

The suit seeks to compel the court to invalidate the election results in Georgia. It was filed on behalf of plaintiffs including Republican Party nominees for the electoral college, the chairman of the Cobb County Republican Party Jason Shepherd, and the Assistant Secretary of the Georgia Republican Party, Brian Jay Van Gundy.

The 104-page complaint argues that “incontrovertible evidence Board of Elections records demonstrates that at least 96,600 absentee ballots were requested and counted but were never recorded as being returned to county election boards by the voter. Thus, at a minimum, 96,600 votes must be disregarded.”

According to the suit, fraud was also allegedly “executed by many means” but the “most troubling, insidious, and egregious” way was the “systemic adaptation of old-fashioned ‘ballot-stuffing.’” It alleges computerized ballot-stuffing and manipulation by software created and run by domestic and foreign actors. The complaint cited affidavits from multiple witnesses, documentation, as well as expert testimony that raised “sheer mathematical impossibilities” in the election results supporting the claims.

“Especially egregious conduct arose in Forsyth, Paulding, Cherokee, Hall, and Barrow County,” the complaint read. “This scheme and artifice to defraud affected tens of thousands of votes in Georgia alone and ‘rigged’ the election in Georgia for Joe Biden.”

In particular, the suit took issue with election software and hardware from Dominion Voting Systems, which it noted was recently purchased and “rushed into use” by Kemp, Raffensperger, and the Georgia Board of Elections.

Plaintiffs allege that the design and features of the Dominion software do not allow for a simple audit to see whether votes were misallocated, redistributed, or deleted, pointing to a Jan. 24 decision by the Texas secretary of state to deny certifying the software “because of a lack of evidence of efficiency and accuracy and to be safe from fraud and unauthorized manipulation.”

“First, the system’s central accumulator does not include a protected real-time audit log that maintains the date and time stamps of all significant election events. Key components of the system utilize unprotected logs,” the filing reads. “Essentially this allows an unauthorized user the opportunity to arbitrarily add, modify, or remove log entries, causing the machine to log election events that do not reflect actual voting tabulations—or more specifically, do not reflect the actual votes of or the will of the people.”

The suit also alleges “incontrovertible physical evidence that the standards of physical security of the voting machines and the software were breached, and machines were connected to the Internet in violation of professional standards and state and federal laws.”

Part of the suit mentions a delay in voting at State Farm Arena in Fulton County, where video on Nov. 3 shows that election workers “falsely claimed a water leak required the facility to close.” It adds, “All poll workers and challengers were evacuated for several hours at about 10:00 PM. However, several election workers remained unsupervised and unchallenged working at the computers for the voting tabulation machines until after 1:00 AM.”

Another part of the complaint said that cybersecurity expert Navid Keshavarz-Nia testified that “U.S. intelligence services had developed tools to infiltrate foreign voting systems including Dominion.” Pointing to vulnerabilities in the Dominion’s software, he claims that “hundreds of thousands of votes” were transferred from President Donald Trump to Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden in battleground states.

The complaint also cites a former electronic intelligence analyst under the 305th Military Intelligence Battalion, who declared that the Dominion software was accessed by agents acting on behalf of China and Iran to monitor and manipulate elections, including the 2020 U.S. general election.

A former U.S. Military Intelligence expert had analyzed the Dominion software system and concluded that the system and software “were certainly compromised by rogue actors, such as Iran and China,” according to another part of the complaint.

“By using servers and employees connected with rogue actors and hostile foreign influences combined with numerous easily discoverable leaked credentials, Dominion neglectfully allowed foreign adversaries to access data and intentionally provided access to their infrastructure in order to monitor and manipulate elections, including the most recent one in 2020,” the filing said.

The lawsuit also claims: “Georgia’s election officials and poll workers exacerbated and helped, whether knowingly or unknowingly, the Dominion system carry out massive voter manipulation by refusing to observe statutory safeguards for absentee ballots. Election officials failed to verify signatures and check security envelopes. They barred challengers from observing the count, which also facilitated the fraud.”

The Georgia secretary of state and Dominion Voting Systems did not immediately respond to The Epoch Times’ requests for comment on the suit.

Dominion released a statement on Wednesday saying: “Claims that Dominion deleted or switched votes are completely false. Dominion systems are 100 percent auditable.”

The lawsuit comes after election results were certified for Georgia on Nov. 20. At the time, Kemp did not clearly endorse the results but said the law required him to “formalize the certification, which paves the way for the Trump campaign to pursue other legal options and a separate recount if they choose.”

And so it goes.
TRUMP Campaign Officially Loses by 132 More Votes in Milwaukee County After $3 Million Recount

The Trump campaign’s recount strategy in Wisconsin has not exactly paid off. In fact, its $3 million investment to re-tabulate the votes in two of that state’s most-populous counties has only netted it 132 more votes so far — for President-elect Joe Biden.

According to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, the requested recount in Milwaukee County has now been completed and resulted in 125 additional votes for Donald Trump, but 257 more for Biden. The process of recounting the county’s nearly 460,000 votes took nearly a week.

“Before the recount, Biden had 317,270 votes in Milwaukee County to Trump’s 134,357. The recount boosted the totals to 317,527 for Biden and 134,482 for Trump,” the Journal-Sentinel reported. “The counties must complete the recount by Tuesday, in time for the state Elections Commission to certify the results by a deadline for that day set in state law.”

Rather than challenge the vote in the entire state, which would’ve cost millions more, the Trump campaign paid for a partial recount that targeted  Milwaukee County, home of the state’s largest African-American community, and Dane County, home to the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Final results from the Dane County recount are not expected until Sunday. But any changes in the net total would be minimal and not come close to changing the final outcome in the state.

In all, Biden won Wisconsin by nearly 21,000 votes, nearly the exact same margin of victory that Trump enjoyed over Hillary Clinton in 2016.

The patience that has been shown to these idiots is amazing.

Hold on just a minute. “Citizen Reporter”, who apparently is too embarrassed to use his own name, claims “it’s now obvious that it was a very crooked election”. If Citizen Reporter says so it MUST be true. Impossible that Citizen Reporter could be the fool so I guess the Trump-appointed judges must be in on the vast conspiracy.

Hopefully Citizen Reporter can step away from his keyboard and do some self reflection.

If they keep up with outrageous theories and accusations you’d have to think it’s got a really good chance of turning Georgia voters blue for the run offs.

When are you going to come back to reality? Sidney Powell just makes this stuff up. Can you show evidence of the MASSIVE voter fraud that STOLE the election? If not then stop publishing Sindney’s attempts to muddy the water for that portion of the population that isn’t able to think for itself.

Whether you file this garbage under “opinion” or “column” or whatever, you’re doing a disservice to your readers. Try living up to your tag line of real news. It’s not hard.

It is NEWS that she filed cases in two states, with many of the allegations backed up by affidavits from eyewitnesses. That is hard news. Thousands of citizens have reported similar allegations in multiple swing states. Watch the the PA legislators hearing before commenting further. At this point, it requires either legislative action or adjudication, which will be reported when it happens.

It’s soft news and a complete absence of evidence – courts don’t throw cases out if they have merit. They are just wasting everyone’s time and making the GOP look stupid.

Tell you what – I’ll keep an open mind to this Quack, if you agree to admit how very, very wrong you are when the courts allow PA to cast its electoral votes for Biden. Deal? Or are you too closed minded to admit you might actually have bought into a bogus conspiracy theory conducted upon those unable to think for themselves?

Sounds like you’re the close-minded one. I don’t know if they will get approval for enough votes to swing it, but it’s now obvious that it was a very crooked election. Put away your keyboard for a while and read the complaints, complete with exhibits, watch the PA legislative hearing. More of those coming up soon in other swing states. There have been thousands of complaints, hundreds of eyewitness affidavits with more coming.
