(FreedomBeacon.com)- Sidney Powell, a prominent attorney, filed a lawsuit on Wednesday evening that alleges “massive election fraud” in Georgia that ultimately changed the outcome of the state’s vote in the presidential election.
Among the defendants named in the case are Brian Kemp, the state’s Republican governor, and Brad Raffensperger, Georgia’s Republican secretary of state who’s also the chair of the Georgia State Election Board. The suit alleges various violations of the Constitution, and says the fraud impacted tens of thousands of votes.
The suit cites expert witnesses, statistical impossibilities as well as fact witnesses. The number of votes the suit alleges were impacted would be enough to switch the outcome of the election from a victory for President-elect Joe Biden to a victory for President Donald Trump.
The filing reads:
“The scheme and artifice to defraud was for the purpose of illegally and fraudulently manipulating the vote count to make certain the election of Joe Biden as President of the United States.”
Georgia certified its election results Friday, which showed that Biden defeated Trump by only 12,670 votes. That’s a margin of victory of only 0.25%.
The lawsuit says the law provides no appropriate remedy. It therefore suggests setting the votes set aside for both the presidential election and for congressional elections in Georgia.
The “massive fraud begins” with the election software that Georgia used for its elections. That was produced and distributed by Dominion Voting Systems Corp. The suit alleges that the features and design of the software don’t allow for a simple audit of “misallocation, redistribution and deletion of votes.”
The suit claims there’s “incontrovertible physical evidence” of a breach of security systems. Voting machines also apparently were connected to the internet, which would be a violation of both federal and state laws.
The machines and software that the state of Georgia purchased from Dominion happened in July 2019. Back then, Democrats in the state said the machines were susceptible to being tampered with. The group arguing this was led by Stacey Abrams, a former candidate for governor.
What’s more, Texas decided in 2018 that Dominion’s voting system wasn’t good enough for their state. They said it was vulnerable to having manipulation go undetected.
Some of these vulnerabilities include barcodes that can be scanned to override votes, the lawsuit claims. Other claims include the machines being connected to the internet without the voting jurisdictions knowing about it.
For their part, a spokesperson for Dominion told Fox News this week that the claims included in the lawsuit have no merit.
What’s more, the lawsuit contains affidavits that say there’s no way to tell if the state’s hand recount of votes was proper or accurate. Those affidavits came from two Republicans who monitored the count, Maria Diedrich and Amanda Cohen.
Affiant Carlos Silva, an observer who is a Democrat, even said he witnesses absentee ballots that were clearly marked for Trump be placed in the voting pile for Biden.
It’s violations of election law like this that the lawsuit is seeking to reconcile — in some way.
