In a new statement, the election voting machine supplier slammed Atty. Sidney Powell, demanding her to renounce allegations against Dominion Voting Systems.
Clare Locke, the law firm representing the voting software company, warned Powell that she is only exposing herself to “substantial legal risk for defamation” if she pursues her accusations of fraud in Dominion.
“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,” says the letter.
The letter then demands that Powell retract her “false accusations and set the record straight” immediately and publicly. It warned to view the lawyer’s statement as an “additional evidence of actual malice” should Powell refuse to retract them.
According to the Hill, Powell claimed that the voting software company used an algorithm to alter Trump’s votes to Biden. She also later said that Dominion Voting Systems paid kickbacks to conservative officials in Georgia and other states to hide the scheme.
However, Powell hasn’t taken such claims to court where she could’ve given the company a chance to refute in front of a judge. She has been on the frontlines in the campaign’s battle against the 2020 election alleged fraud activities. She announced last Friday to file emergency lawsuits in Michigan, Georgia, Arizona, and Wisconsin.
The announcement came only hours after the Supreme Court overthrew a Texas lawsuit that attempted to block the national election certification.
Meanwhile, an emergency appeal to the Georgia Supreme Court was filed by President Trump’s legal team simultaneously with Powell’s.
According to Atlanta News Now, President Trump initially filed the lawsuit on December 4. However, Fulton County Superior Court clerk initially rejected the suit due to unpaid fees and incorrect paperwork filing.
President Trump’s team corrected the errors on Monday, prompting the state officials to recertify the election results after the third tally vote. The tally showed Democrat Biden won Georgia by 11,779 votes out of about 5 million ballots cast.
The president’s campaign then withdrew an emergency motion for a TRO aimed to prevent the certification. On Wednesday, Fulton County Judge Constance Russell also issued an order stating that the suit would progress “in the normal course,” meaning that it would not be resolved sooner.
Without backing out, Trump’s campaign appealed to the Supreme Court of Georgia that Russell isn’t qualified to judge an election case under state law. The appeal said that Russel is a Fulton County resident and an active judge – not a senior judge. The appeal then asked the Supreme Court to rule on its merit before Monday.
