A SETBACK FOR POWELL IN MICHIGAN, BUT A GLIMMER OF HOPE REMAINS
Julio Gonzalez, M.D., J.D.
The Sidney Powell team suffered a dramatic defeat in Michigan on Monday morning when a lawsuit her team presented before Federal District Court Judge Linda V. Parker was summarily dismissed.
The lawsuit alleges, through Russell Ramsland, one of its expert witnesses, that the Dominion software alone was responsible for "the injection or fabrication, of 289,866 illegal votes in Michigan that must be disregarded." The complaint also brought forth the fraudulent activities at the TCF Center in Wayne County, which included the harassment of Republican poll workers, the denial of meaningful access to oversight, the fraudulent addition of new voters to accommodate unaccountable ballots, the changing of Trump votes to Biden, double voting, the counting of ineligible ballots, and the loading of unsecured ballots without corresponding envelopes and appropriate chain of custody provisions from a truck on November 4, among other accusations.
But on Monday Judge Parker disagreed, calling the lawsuit "stunning in its scope and breathtaking in its reach." Among other comments, she discounted the Equal Protection Clause arguments based on the differential treatment of ballots throughout the state. Specifically, according to Judge Parker, the reason she was dismissing this case was because, in her opinion, there was no definitive demonstration of votes being switched. The most the plaintiffs offered, Judge Parker wrote, was a belief or a suspicion that these alterations had taken place. There was no way, according to the judge, that she was going to rule in favor of the plaintiffs based on suppositions.
But despite the dismissal, the Trump legal team is still harboring hope of a favorable resolution. In an interview with Charles Payne, Trump Senior Legal Advisor, Jenna Ellis made note of an ongoing forensic audit of the Michigan voting machines whose results may become available on Tuesday. It is hoped that the examination will determine whether the machines were connected to the internet and that it may help explain the nature and scope of the reported "glitches."
No doubt, millions of Trump voters are eagerly awaiting the result of these evaluations.
