In another setback for Attorney Sidney Powell, a judge in Wisconsin has dismissed another “Kraken” lawsuit which sought to overturn the results of the election in the state due to allegations of voter fraud and irregularities.
U.S. District Judge Pamela Pepper wrote in her decision that she did not have the jurisdiction to appoint the president.
“One wonders why the plaintiffs came to federal court and asked a federal judge to do so. After a week of sometimes odd and often harried litigation, the court is no closer to answering the ‘why.’ But this federal court has no authority or jurisdiction to grant the relief the remaining plaintiff seeks,” the judge wrote.
This decision came hours after a federal judge in Arizona made a similar decision regarding Powell’s lawsuit in her state, finding that the claims of voter fraud were unsupported.
“Not only have Plaintiffs failed to provide the Court with factual support for their extraordinary claims, but they have wholly failed to establish that they have standing for the Court to consider them. Allegations that find favor in the public sphere of gossip and innuendo cannot be a substitute for earnest pleadings and procedure in federal court. They most certainly cannot be the basis for upending Arizona’s 2020 General Election,” U.S. District Judge Diane Joyce Humetewa said.
Earlier this week, federal judges in both Michigan and Georgia came to the same conclusions.
After this defeat in Wisconsin, every piece of Sidney Powell’s legislation has been dismissed, though she and her co-counsel Lin Wood are pursuing appeals for both the Georgia and Michigan cases.
Carelessness in the lawsuits have left many on the right believing that they will not go very far. For example, in the Wisconsin case, Powell requested that the judge order the disclosure of 48 hours of surveillance footage at the “TCF Center,” which is in Detroit, Michigan.
Though conservatives may have lost faith in Sidney Powell, they are now feeling hopeful because of a new case: the Texas lawsuit against four states: Michigan, Georgia, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania. This lawsuit, which has not been accepted by the Supreme Court yet, seems to be President Trump’s last chance at victory.
