Lawyers working to prove President Trump’s claims of “widespread voter fraud” have claimed more than 1.5 million ballots were manipulated in three states — enough to change the outcome of the Nov. 3 election.
Sidney Powell, who is not on the president’s legal team but is filing pro-Trump lawsuits, sued officials in Michigan on Wednesday alleging Dominion Voting Systems software switched tens of thousands of votes for Mr. Trump to presumptive President-elect Joseph R. Biden.
The software manipulation, according to the complaint, was coupled with other fraud such as backdating absentee ballots.
“While this complaint, and the eyewitness and expert testimony incorporated herein, identify with specificity sufficient ballots required to overturn and reverse the election results, the entire process is so riddled with fraud, illegality, and statistical impossibility that this court, and Michigan’s voters, courts, and legislators, cannot rely on, or certify, any numbers resulting from this election,” said the 75-page lawsuit.
Hundreds of pages of exhibits were attached to the complaint, including affidavits from expert witnesses.
The crux of their claim in Michigan is there’s “incontrovertible physical evidence” that the security of the voting machines was jeopardized by the software being connected to the internet, which the lawyers say violated federal election law.
The lawsuit claims the software was developed by individuals with ties to the late Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez and has been used to fix elections in other countries.
