Sidney Powell had two petitions in Arizona and Wisconsin, challenging the Nov. 3 U.S. presidential election results, denied by the Supreme Court. 

Powell, one of the main players taking legal action to uncover election fraud, had already had her cases rejected by lower courts for lack of substantial evidence. In Michigan, her Supreme Court case was also rejected, and she withdrew her case in Georgia just before Biden’s inauguration in January. 

The Supreme Court denied two mandamus petitions that Powell filed in late December. “A submission directly to this Court seeking an extraordinary writ of mandamus is unusual, but it has its foundation. While such relief is rare, this Court will grant it ‘where a question of public importance is involved, or where the question is of such a nature that it is peculiarly appropriate that such action by this Court should be taken,’” her petitions said.

“The Supreme Court’s failure to date to address the massive election fraud and multiple constitutional violations that wrought a coup of the presidency of the greatest country in world history completes the implosion of each of our three branches of government into the rubble of a sinkhole of corruption,” Powell said in an email to Forbes Monday. “It is an absolute tragedy for the Rule of Law, the future of what was a Republic, and all freedom-loving people around the world.”

In December, Powell started an independent movement called Restore the Republic Super PAC, which gives her the right to raise funds and engage in limitless spending, as long as it is not directed towards any particular campaign or candidates. The Restore, the Republic Super PAC website, says that it “was established to defend and protect the integrity of elections in the United States,” and that “We are STILL working on your behalf. Thank you for trusting us. We must simply work harder now.”

Powell’s Twitter account suspended

After the events on Jan. 6 at Capitol Hill, Powell and many other conservatives had their accounts suspended by Twitter. She told the Epoch Times that she was surprised by the ban, as Twitter gave her “no warning at all.”

Powell is also facing Dominion Voting Systems lawsuits. They are suing her $1.3 billion for defamation, including Smartmatic, which has filed a joint $2.7 billion lawsuit against Powell, Rudy Giuliani, and multiple Fox News stars for trying to push conspiracy theories about their voting machines.

Powell’s lawyer Lin Wood claimed that Dominion “made a mistake suing Sidney,” that they were going “to pay a heavy price,” and that he and Powell “will not go quietly into the night.”

The Maricopa County audit that was authorized on Jan. 27 has found that Dominion machines were not switching votes from Trump to Biden as Powell had claimed. The official audit team’s report stated: “Maricopa County Elections Department’s configuration and setup of the tabulation equipment and election management system provided an accurate counting of ballots and reporting of election results.”
