  • Former Trump attorney Sidney Powell has bizarrely claimed that US votes are being manipulated on a secret server.

  • There is no evidence to support this claim – Powell has shared several debunked conspiracy theories.

  • Two election technology companies are already suing Powell for libel in lawsuits totaling $ 4 billion.

Former Trump attorney Sidney Powell shared a baseless claim that all American votes are sent to a secret server where they are manipulated to rig the election result.

“What I think you really need to find out is that there is a secret server that all votes go to where they manipulate the devil,” Powell told “The Ledger Report,” a conservative talk show. , Friday.

“We need to know where their servers are and what they’re doing with them, and we need the data from them and we need the data from the machines.

“But they’re going as fast as they can, right now, wherever they can to completely reorganize the machines with new software that erases anything that shows what they’ve done.”

Powell’s comments followed his earlier claims of widespread voter fraud in the November presidential election.

She rose to prominence as a member of former President Donald Trump’s legal team after sharing bizarre conspiracy theories about voter fraud in the 2020 election, alleging that election technology company Dominion Voting Systems had secretly aided rival company Smartmatic in an attempt to steal Trump’s election.

Trump fired Powell from his legal team after she made the claims publicly.

Legal documents later showed that Trump’s staff warned Powell that his claims about the two companies were false, but did not dissuade him from repeating the claims.

Dominion and Smartmatic are now demanding large sums of libel from Powell for his claims against them. Dominion filed a $ 1.3 billion lawsuit against Powell, while Smartmatic filed a $ 2.7 billion lawsuit against Powell and other Trump allies.

Powell said in a separate interview last week that she does not have “the smallest fraction of that amount in assets,” but that she plans to pursue lawsuits to combat the lawsuits against her.

She had counterattacked Dominion in September and doubled down on some of her claims against the company.

Eric Coomer, a former Dominion employee involved in conspiracy theories against his company, is also suing Powell and others for libel.
