UPDATE: Sidney Powell’s Michigan case officially on SCOTUS docket
by Jon Fleetwood | December 17, 2020
One of Sidney Powell’s cases has finally made it to the Supreme Court of the United States:
Case number 20–815.
Powell is seeking to overturn Joe Biden's election victory in Michigan.
The case involves the forensic audit done in Michigan showing fraud committed through the Dominion Voting System.
The following conclusion by Allied Security Operations Group (ASOG), who conducted the court-ordered forensic audit, is included in the lawsuit:
We conclude that the Dominion Voting System is intentionally and purposefully designed with inherent errors to create systemic fraud and influence election results. The system intentionally generates an enormously high number of ballot errors. The electronic ballots are then transferred for adjudication. The intentional errors lead to bulk adjudication of ballots with no oversight, no transparency, and no audit trail. This leads to voter or election fraud. Based on our study, we conclude that The Dominion Voting System should not be used in Michigan. We further conclude that the results of Antrim County should not have been certified.
The case says that the Interim Report by ASOG also shows that the voting “software inexplicably produced wildly different results from the election day version.”
ASOG found “evidence of tampering” and “destruction of evidence and a violation of state law.”
The Interim Report also found that “an unauthorized user unsuccessfully attempted to zero out election results.”
“Compelling evidence and expert analyses show convincingly that the results of the Dominion system cannot be trusted and should not have been certified.”

Dominion was used in at least 24 states in the 2020 presidential election, according to Reuters. Although Dominion's website says they have "customers in 28 states." Here is an image from the site depicting their "U.S. Footprint":
President Donald Trump has maintained that Dominion conspired to help Joe Biden steal the election.
The company has denied "ties to Venezuela and that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s family and the Clinton Global Initiative had ownership stakes," according to Bloomberg.
It has also denied connections with Smartmatic, which Rudy Giuliani–Trump's lawyer–claims has ties to billionaire progressive George Soros.
The Epoch Times reported earlier this month that Soros had promoted a former Smartmatic chairman to head up the Open Society Foundations.
"George Soros announced that Mark Malloch-Brown, the former chairman of Smartmatic and current chairman of Smartmatic parent company SGO Corp., will lead Open Society Foundations," wrote Epoch Times. "SGO is an investor group whose leading business owns Smartmatic election systems. The company’s relationship with Dominion Voting Systems is drawing attention and scrutiny as numerous voter fraud allegations against Dominion emerge in the wake of the 2020 U.S. election."
Epoch Times spoke with a CIA official claiming Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez used Smartmatic to win the 2004 recall referendum.
The CIA official also corroborates Powell's claim that Dominion machines were equipped with Smartmatic-designed software, according to Epoch Times.
According to Business Insider, Dominion is currently threatening Sidney Powell with a defamation lawsuit.
"Dominion Voting Systems has sent a letter to the lawyer Sidney Powell threatening to sue her for defamation if she does not retract her baseless claims about the company," writes Business Insider.
The company wrote in a letter to Powell, "Your reckless disinformation campaign is predicated on lies that have endangered Dominion's business and the lives of its employees."
Dominion claims that Powell has made "wild, knowingly baseless, and false accusations" on "behalf of the Trump Campaign as part of a coordinated media circus and fundraising scheme."
Powell's Georgia case (no. 20–816) also made it to the Supreme Court.
Powell confirmed in a tweet yesterday that both the Michigan case as well as the Georgia case have been docketed by SCOTUS.
Powell says ordered responses from the states are not due until Jan. 14.
The 41-page Georgia case asserts that its contents have "direct implications for the outcome of the election nationwide."
The Interim Report findings and expert testimony conclude that "at least 96,000 mail-in ballots were fraudulently cast" and that "136,098 ballots were illegally counted as result of improper manipulation of the Dominion software."
The case points out that each of these numbers is "several times larger than former VicePresident Biden’s margin of victory in Georgia (10,457 votes)."
Both the Interim Report and the Georgia Board of Registration and Elections (BRE) analysis confirm the vulnerability of the Dominion voting system to manipulation. "[B]allots going to adjudication can be changed on a wholesale basis by the operator with no oversight, controls or accountability, an extremely serious
vulnerability," according to the case.
The case also discusses the implications under Article III of the US Constitution whereby the actions of the competing slates of electors, the so-called 'alternate' GOP electors, "creates a very live 'case or controversy.'" The case adds, "These matters are far outside the subject matter jurisdiction of state courts under local election contest statutes. It is a case or controversy presenting federal questions that must be squarely faced by the federal court system."
The case reasons that Joe Biden's election win is therefore illegitimate. "If the results of the Dominion system cannot be trusted, neither can the appointment of the Biden electors in Georgia, Arizona, Michigan and Wisconsin, or any jurisdiction using Dominion systems."
This means that the results of the election in Georgia, Arizona, Michigan, and Wisconsin demonstrate a "statistical impossibility" which according to expert analysis "is highly probative of fraud or irregularity and provides compelling justification for further investigation and for the equitable and extraordinary relief sought in these Petitions," according to the case.
The Petition concludes that "Allowing a fraudulent result to be enforced would threaten the legitimacy of two branches of the federal government, not just one. The Court is called to its duty by the ghosts entombed on the other side of the Potomac River."
