Attorney Sidney Powell said Monday she expects “to get relief” in the U.S. Supreme Court after suffering two losses earlier in the day in her challenge of election results in Michigan and Georgia.
Appearing on Newsmax TV’s Greg Kelly Reports, the Trump advocate said the case in Georgia was prejudged, resulting in the federal judge granting leftist “interveners’” motions of dismissal. Powell named the Democrat National Committee as one of those interveners.
“The court wouldn’t pay any attention to any of it,” Powell said of her complaint alleging fraud. “It’s obvious the judge had made up his mind before he hit the bench, and he read from prepared notes when he granted the motion to dismiss.”
“So, we had an oral argument, but I would say it was essentially meaningless, except to the extent the public got to hear another federal judicial proceeding that didn’t turn out the way it should have,” she added.
U.S. District Court Judge Timothy Batten, appointed by President George W. Bush, ruled the plaintiffs did not have standing to bring the claims, that the case belonged in state court and that overturning the results of the election would be “judicial activism,” according to WSB-TV.
“They want this court to substitute its judgment for the 2.5 million voters who voted for Biden,” Batten added. “This I’m unwilling to do.”
In Michigan, U.S. District Court Judge Linda Parker ruled that it was too late to grant an injunction because the election has taken place and its results have been certified, Fox News reported.
“The time has passed to provide most of the relief Plaintiffs request in their Amended Complaint; the remaining relief is beyond the power of any court. For those reasons, this matter is moot,” Parker wrote.
The judge said granting relief “would disenfranchise the votes of the more than 5.5 million Michigan citizens who, with dignity, hope, and a promise of a voice, participated in the 2020 General Election.”
In pointing out that the Electoral College meets next week, Newsmax TV host Greg Kelly asked Powell what’s next.
“We’re going to proceed immediately with an emergency appeal, and we expect to get relief in the Supreme Court,” Powell said.
A big part of her claim centers around “a systemic problem” with Dominion voting machines, as Powell claimed the vote for Biden was 5% higher where these machines were used.
When pressed on the timing of getting to the nation’s highest court, Powell replied, “There should be at least three states before the Supreme Court with enough electoral votes to change the outcome before the end of the week.”
“We’re determined to win because the American people have been defrauded from their lawful votes in this election, and that cannot stand,” she concluded.
