Powell was one of the main people pushing the theory that Dominion voting machines were used to rig the 2020 presidential election in favour of Biden. The allegation emerged in light of a “glitch” in the Dominion machines, which flipped several thousand GOP votes to the Democrats in one Georgia county.
Dominion Voting Systems CEO John Poulos has revealed in an interview with the Axios Re:Cap podcast that his company is preparing a lawsuit against Sidney Powell over her claims that Dominion machines were used to alter the results of the presidential election, as well as other statements regarding the company.
“It’s imminent. She is, by far in our opinion, the most egregious and prolific purveyor of the falsities against Dominion. Her statements have caused real damage, and they’re demonstrably false”, Poulos said.
Dominion’s CEO clarified that claims about voting machines purportedly being rigged are not new and are routinely used by candidates who lost. However, Poulos argued, Powell was deliberately “spreading false information […] with malicious intent”. He added that Dominion could be filing lawsuits against members of Donald Trump’s legal team peddling such theories too, but failed to specify any names or indicate whether POTUS will be among them.
Powell, an election lawyer supporting President Donald Trump’s claims of voter fraud but who is not officially included in his legal team, claimed that Dominion voting machines manipulated votes in the presidential election in favour of Biden. She went on to claim that foreign governments had a hand in developing and producing the machines. Powell alleged that Hugo Chavez, the late president of Venezuela who died in 2013, had specifically ordered the production of Dominion voting systems, but failed to back up her claims with evidence.
