Wisconsin Governor Tells Judge to Sanction Sidney Powell without Re-Litigating Her’Mish-Mash Mess’ of a Lawsuit

Facing a billion-dollar lawsuit from Dominion, several sanctions moves, and bar complaints, attorney Sidney Powell requested a federal judge last month to establish an evidentiary hearing in Wisconsin on election-fraud claims that were rejected by every court that discovered them. Lawyers for Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers (D) portrayed that gambit too unnecessary and distressed in a brand fresh legal brief asking the judge to sanction her without all of the fuss.
“The movement isn’t a car for re-litigating this court’s numerous rationales for ignoring the amended complaint,” the governor’s lawyer Jeffrey A. Mandell composed in an eight-page brief on Wednesday. “Nor can it be a petition to get a guided excursion via the scattershot of supposed evidence that they flung at the wall here, in the vain expectation that something might stick, or perhaps leave a mark. The question at the heart of Governor Evers’s motion for fees would be whether their litigation was filed in a suitable way for a proper function. It wasn’t.”
U.S. District Judge Pamela Pepper, that presided over Powell’s situation, ignored the suit last December in a judgment characterizing it as an effort to reach throughout the judiciary exactly what Donald Trump’s supporters could not during the ballot.
“Federal judges do not appoint the president in this nation,” Pepper composed in 45-page judgment late last year. After a week of sometimes strange and frequently harried lawsuit, the courtroom isn’t any closer to answering the’why.’ But this federal court has no authority or jurisdiction to grant the relief the rest of the plaintiff seeks.”
Founded on behalf of would-be Trump elector William Sheehan, Powell’s team analyzed their direct plaintiff’s name as”Meehan,” but they insisted that their complaint could have been a winner in case Judge Pepper only permitted the case to get to the values.
Scoffing at that proposal, Gov. Evers noticed that Powell’s theories rely on a supposed plot by Dominion voting machines to install Joe Biden as president via electoral shenanigans throughout the nation, including Wisconsin’s Milwaukee and Dane counties. One of the holes with this theory is neither of those counties utilized Dominion technology, the governor stated.
“The amended complaint was a mish-mash mess,” the sheriff’s brief states.
Feehan, Powell and another attorneys”might now insist that the amended complaint was pleaded, but their ipse dixit doesn’t make it so,” it continues, using the Latin to their say-so.
Styling her lawsuits since the”Kraken” — named after the mythical creature given the Hollywood treatment since the octopus-like monster murdered in”Clash of the Titans” — Powell had a legal team with several arms. Some of its representatives have responded to the sanctions moves, and Gov. Evers states that this puts them on the hook for legal fees, too.
“By failing to submit any response or connect with any filed response over the appropriate time allotted, Julia Z. Haller, Brandon Johnson, Emily P. Newman, and L. Lin Wood have surrendered the Court can impose fees and that Governor Evers’s fee request is reasonable,” the brief states.
Rattling off”egregious” highlights of Powell and Feehan’s complaint, the governor’s brief claims that they progressed a”crazy conspiracy theory” to assert the judge should”unilaterally and counterfactually” declare Trump won Wisconsin. They waited several months after the election to file suit and also comprised a supposed plaintiff that disclaimed any knowledge of a lawsuit filed in their own name. The Washington Post identified just two of the anonymous”expert” witnesses and reported that their declarations seemed to add false statements, along with the judge found that they seem to have”made up” a quote by her priests.
