During an interview with Zenger News on Dec. 23, Attorney Sidney Powell doubled down on accusations that voting machines used during the 2020 presidential election were connected to the internet and they need to be audited. 

Powell told Zenger that she would encourage the president to “stand up a task force immediately with instructions to secure the voting machines in at least ten different major areas across the country.”

Powell noted that all the voting machines need to be seized, including Dominion Voting Systems’ machines and others in both Democratic and Republican-led counties, in order to perform a formal cyber analysis.

“I want them[federal government] to secure them and conduct a full forensic of all the entire system, the server, the tabulator, all parts of the system. Anything that is connected to the internet the night of the election broke the law, ” she continued. 

Powell also released a 270-page document on election fraud to Zenger, including affidavits, evidence, and testimony from numerous witnesses. 

“Powell contends that documents in the binder prove direct foreign interference and fraud tainted the Nov. 3 presidential election, and that President Donald Trump was re-elected,” wrote Zenger.

On Saturday, Sidney retweet a post that showed a witness in an Arizona hearing saying that some voting machines were connected to the internet on Nov. 3.

Powell filed lawsuits in crucial battleground states alleging widespread fraud and that machines from Dominion Voting Systems flipped votes from President Donald Trump to Democrat candidate Joe Biden.

Powell alleged that some Dominion machines were accessed by Chinese and Iranian agents during the election. Dominion has denied the allegations and sued Powell and other lawyers for defamation. 

Former director of the Department of Homeland Security’s Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) Christopher Krebs, who disputed President Donald Trump’s accusations of election fraud, told a Senate hearing on election security on Dec. 16 that some voting machines were connected to the internet on Nov.3.

“Some may have modems that are typically disabled but in certain states, I believe in Wisconsin, some are temporarily activated to transmit some counts. But again, when you have paper, you can conduct a post-election audit,” Krebs said.

Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe said that there was foreign election interference by China, Iran, and Russia in November and a report on foreign threats to the election would come out next month. 

During the interview, Powell confirmed that there was a discussion about her being appointed as special White House counsel, not Robert Mueller-style special counsel, but “that has not come to pass.”

“What I’ve really been trying to get to the president is evidence of foreign interference in the election particularly by China and Iran, of which there is a substantial documentation. And frankly I’ve been blocked from speaking to or communicating with the president since I left the Oval Office on Friday night, by apparently everyone around him,” she said.
