Trump Lawyer Sidney Powell Says GA Election Lawsuit ‘Will Be Biblical’ – Newsweek
President Donald Trump‘s lawyer, Sidney Powell said an upcoming Georgia election lawsuit “will be biblical,” as Trump’s campaign continued its efforts to prove allegations of voter fraud in the 2020 presidential election.
“Georgia’s probably going to be the first state I’m gonna blow up,” Powell said in an interview with the conservative media outlet Newsmax TV on Saturday night.
“We’ve got tons of evidence. It’s so much, it’s hard to pull it all together,” Powell continued. “Hopefully, this week we will get it ready to file, and it will be biblical.”
Jordan Sekulow, another member of Trump’s legal team who appeared on Newsmax TV earlier on Saturday, also hinted at a “shocking” lawsuit on its way to Georgia.
“I can’t tell you right now what is coming in Georgia, but what is coming in Georgia will be shocking,” Sekulow said.
Powell later claimed that Republican Georgia Governer Brian Kemp and Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger were being paid to be part of a conspiracy with Dominion Voting Systems.
“And Mr. Kemp and the secretary of state need to go with it because they’re in on the Dominion scam with their last-minute purchase or reward of a contract to Dominion of $100 million,” said Powell, alleging that Georgia law enforcement should investigate the claim.
The Dominion Voting Systems conspiracy arose following a tweet from Trump claiming that “Dominion deleted 2.7 million Trump votes nationwide,” and that the voting system switched Trump votes to favor President-elect Joe Biden.
However, these claims have since been proven false.
According to The New York Times, three Georgia counties also had issues with vote counts, but an error in the Dominion software did not change the actual vote count, and instead delayed reporting of vote tallies.
While speaking to the Times, Edward Perez, an election-technology expert at the OSET Institute, said that “many of the claims being asserted about Dominion and questionable voting technology is misinformation at best and, in many cases, they’re outright disinformation.”
“I’m not aware of any evidence of specific things or defects in Dominion software that would lead one to believe that votes had been recorded or counted incorrectly,” Perez told the Times.
Dominion Voting Systems also has published its own fact check on claims about its systems, writing that there is “no credible reports or evidence of any software issues exist.”
Trump has also motioned to an upcoming suit in the Peach State in a tweet on Saturday. “Big voter fraud information coming out concerning Georgia. Stay tuned,” wrote the president.
Amy Gardner, the national political reporter at The Washington Post, tweeted on Sunday that Trump’s statement is likely a reference to Powell’s claims. “At what point does all this become actionable as libel or frivolous lawsuits?” asked Gardner.
Kemp’s office, Raffensperger, Powell and Trump’s re-election campaign didn’t respond to Newsweek‘s request for comment in time for publication.
