Dominion Voting Systems lashed out at attorney Sidney Powell in a newly sent letter, demanding that she retract her allegations against the voting software company.
The letter was sent from the law firm Clare Locke, warning Powell that she is exposing herself to “substantial legal risk for defamation” if she doesn’t stop accusing Dominion of fraud.
“As a result of your false accusations, Dominion has suffered enormous harm, and its employees have been stalked, have been harassed, and have received death threats,” the letter says. “We demand that you immediately and publicly retract your false accusations and set the record straight. If you refuse to do so and instead choose to stand by your defamatory falsehoods, that will be viewed as additional evidence of actual malice.”
Check out what The Hill reported:
Powell has claimed that Dominion used an algorithm to flip some votes from Trump to President-elect Joe Biden. She has also claimed that Dominion paid kickbacks to GOP officials in Georgia and elsewhere to keep quiet about the scheme, among many other allegations.
The former Trump attorney has not taken those claims to court, where she would have to provide proof and where Dominion would be given a chance to refute her claims in front of a judge.
Powell has been on the front lines of the legal battle surrounding the 2020 election. Last Friday, Powell announced that she was making emergency filings in the states of Georgia, Michigan, Arizona and Wisconsin.
The announcement from Powell came just hours after the Supreme Court shot down Texas’s lawsuit where they attempted to block the certification of the 2020 election results.
“Pay attention!” Powell tweeted. “We made emergency filings in #SupremeCourt tonight for #Georgia & #Michigan. Will be filing #Arizona #Wisconsin shortly. These cases raise constitutional issues and prove massive #fraud. Our plaintiffs have #standing #WeThePeople will not allow #rigged elections.”
At the same time as Powell, President Trump’s team simultaneously filed an emergency appeal to the Supreme Court in Georgia.
Atlanta News Now reports:
Trump initially filed the lawsuit Dec. 4. But the Fulton County Superior Court clerk’s office initially rejected it, saying the president’s attorneys didn’t pay the proper filing fee or fill out the paperwork correctly.
Trump’s attorneys corrected that on Monday – the same day state officials recertified the election results following a third tally of votes. The vote showed Biden won Georgia by 11,779 votes out of some 5 million ballots cast.
With the certification done, Trump’s campaign withdrew an emergency motion for a temporary restraining order to prevent the certification. With the emergency motion withdrawn, Fulton County Judge Constance Russell issued an order Wednesday stating the lawsuit would proceed “in the normal course” – which means it will not be resolved any time soon.
On Friday, Trump’s campaign appealed to the Georgia Supreme Court.
The appeal says Russell is not qualified to judge an election case under state law because she is a resident of Fulton County and an active judge – not a judge on senior status. Because of that and other miscues it says occurred at the county court, the appeal asks the Supreme Court to rule on the merits of its case before Monday.
