A group of Republicans represented by attorney Sydney Powell are asking the Supreme Court to review the results of a forensic audit of Dominion Voting Systems machines in Antrim County, Michigan.
Powell and her team sent a letter to the Supreme Court on Sunday asking to file the results of the audit and other materials with the court under seal. The attorneys requested the materials remain out of public view “primarily because of the protective order under which it was obtained,” according to a copy of the letter obtained by The Washington Examiner.
“This evidence is crucial to a just resolution of the cases pending before this court,” the attorneys wrote to the Supreme Court in a letter obtained by the Washington Examiner. “The petitioners stand ready to provide the evidence to the Court under the procedures it deems appropriate.”
Powell’s team has appealed its case to the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals after a district court judge rejected an emergency request to block certification of Michigan’s election results on Dec. 7. Powell also filed an emergency appeal with the U.S. Supreme Court ahead of any action on the case by the 6th circuit.
On Dec. 7, District Court Judge Linda Parker ripped Powell’s lawsuit in the decision denying the attorney’s requests and asserting that Powell could not back up claims of rampant voter fraud and miscounted votes due to Dominion systems.
“The closest plaintiffs get to alleging that election machines and software changed votes for President Trump to Vice President Biden in Wayne County is an amalgamation of theories, conjecture, and speculation that such alterations were possible,” Parker wrote.
Circuit Judge Kevin Eisenheimer allowed a forensic audit of Dominion machines in Antrim County on Dec. 4, stemming from a lawsuit over an incident that flipped thousands of votes from President Trump to Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden. The mistake was caught but caused an uproar among GOP officials and the Trump campaign, which alleged that the discrepancy could have been fraud or a systemic problem with Dominion machines.
Antrim County election officials must “maintain, preserve and protect all records in its possession used to tabulate votes in Antrim County, to not turn on the Dominion tabulator in its possession and to not connect the Dominion tabulator in its possession to the internet,” the order said. The audit was conducted two days later on Dec. 6.
The Michigan Secretary of State blamed the Antrim County switch on human error in November following the election on Nov. 3.
“The erroneous reporting of unofficial results from Antrim county was a result of accidental error on the part of the Antrim County Clerk,” the Secretary of State’s office said in a statement. “The equipment and software did not malfunction and all ballots were properly tabulated. However, the clerk accidentally did not update the software used to collect voting machine data and report unofficial results.”
