Dominion Voting Systems Threatens Powell With Legal Notice

( Dominion Voting Systems, the company behind the voting machines used in the 2020 presidential election, is trying to claw back its reputation and has demanded that pro-Trump lawyer Sidney Powell retract her statements about the voting machines and how they appear to have miscalculated the election.

In a letter from Clara Locke LLP, Powell was accused of pushing a “reckless disinformation campaign,” despite obtaining information about the Dominion voting machines from employees of the company and professionals in the industry. Locke claims that Powell’s lawsuits and public statements are “predicated on lies that endangered Dominion’s business and the lives of its employees.”

“We write to demand that you retract your most serious false accusations,” it continues.

Only “the most serious”? Interesting.

The letter specifically references claims made by Powell about the company’s connections to Venezuela and Hugo Chavez, the former dictator of the socialist country. The company also wants Powell to walk back her claims that Dominion paid “kickbacks” – unethical reward payments – to the state of Georgia to receive a “no-bid” contract to use their voting machines in the 2020 election.

Naturally, the company also asked that Powell would stop making claims that Dominion helped manipulate the 2020 election by “installing and using an algorithm” and “manipulating votes.”

If Dominion stands so firmly in opposition to these claims, why did representatives of the company cancel their appearance at evidentiary hearings in front of state legislatures in recent weeks?

That would have been a good time to defend themselves.

Locke suggests that Powell, who President Trump is reportedly considering appointing a special counsel to investigate the election, has “knowingly or recklessly” made false claims about the firm and done so “with actual malice.”

The company claimed that Powell has exposed herself and the Trump campaign to “substantial legal risk of defamation.”

“We demand that you immediately and publicly retract your false accusations and set the record straight,” it continued.

Powell’s office has not responded to the letter, but if she does, it’s unlikely going to confirm her compliance. The high-profile Texas attorney has faced off against big business and even federal agencies in the past and is unlikely to back down now.

This month, Powell claimed that the level of foreign interference in the 2020 presidential election “is more than sufficient to trigger the President’s executive order from 2018 that gives him all kinds of power…from seize assets to freeze things, demand the impoundment of the machines,” and more.
