“Trump Lawyer Sidney Powell Says Team Will Sue Officials ‘To Invalidate’ Election Results”

By Jack Phillips

Excerpts from this article:

Hours after claiming that President Donald Trump won the election by a landslide and that there is evidence to overturn it, campaign lawyer Sidney Powell said her team will sue more election officials in key states.

While the campaign will not sue election software manufacturing companies, “the suits will be against the election officials to invalidate the results of the election and force it to the legislatures and the Electoral College and then the Congress if necessary,” said Powell, a former federal prosecutor who successfully defended Gen. Michael Flynn in court, in an interview with Fox Business’ Lou Dobbs.

Powell was likely referring to Article One, Article Two, and the 12th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution about contested or contingent elections. Some legal experts and Congress members, including Harvard professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz and Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.), have suggested that Congress can reject a state’s Electoral College votes…

Powell did not say what officials will be sued.

Earlier Thursday, Powell described an alleged transnational conspiracy using “communist money” from Cuba, Venezuela, and possibly China to overturn the election.

“American patriots are fed up with the corruption from the local level to the highest level of our government,” she said in a news conference. “We are not going to be intimidated. We are not going to back down. We are going to clean this mess up now. President Trump won by a landslide. We are going to prove it. And we are going to reclaim the United States of America for the people who vote for freedom.”

Powell, in the news conference, brought up alleged connections between SmartmaticDominion Voting Systems, and Venezuela’s regime under long-dead strongman Hugo Chavez. She made reference to an affidavit filed this week that cited testimony from an alleged whistleblower and former Venezuelan military member, who claimed Smartmatic, Dominion, and other election software companies used technology that was developed in Venezuela under Chavez many years ago.

Over the years, Venezuela’s government has been accused of election-rigging schemes on behalf of Chavez and current leader Nicolas Maduro.

A 2006 diplomatic cable leaked by Wikileaks years ago, titled, “Caracas’ View of Smartmatic and its voting machines,” written by former U.S. Embassy counselor Robert Downes, noted that Smartmatic was formed by engineers in Venezuela and was used in the country for years. The cable at the time described Smartmatic as “a riddle” and “came out of nowhere to snatch a multi-million dollar contract in an electoral process that ultimately reaffirmed Chavez’ mandate and all-but destroyed his political opposition.” The company’s software is used in the Philippines, various African countries, and several Latin American countries.

Smartmatic and Dominion have not responded to a request for comment.
