Ex-Trump lawyer Sidney Powell files lawsuits in Michigan, Georgia | TheHill – The Hill

Sidney Powell, the lawyer recently distanced from the Trump campaign, on Wednesday filed typo-filled lawsuits in both Michigan and Georgia alleging election fraud. 

The suits alleged problems linked to voting machines, mail-in ballots and former Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez, according to Bloomberg. Powell repeatedly made the accusations without providing evidence while she was a member of the Trump campaign’s legal team.

The new suits also included allegations about forged ballots and observers being unable to watch vote tabulation, Bloomberg reported.

Jean Carroll defamation lawsuit MORE and his allies have repeatedly alleged that the election was riddled with widespread voter fraud without providing any evidence.

Both of the cases filed by Powell were riddled with typographical issues.

The case in Michigan had a number of formatting problems that removed spacing between words, Bloomberg reported. In the Georgia suit, the word district was misspelled twice on the first page of the document: There was an extra c for “DISTRICCT,” and then it was spelled “DISTRCOICT.”

The Trump campaign distanced itself from Powell on Sunday after she made a series of increasingly convoluted and baseless allegations about voter fraud.

During the press conference, Powell alleged that Dominion Voting Systems, which supplies voting machines across the United States, used technology developed by Chávez, who died in 2013. She said votes were being manipulated overseas to favor Biden.
