Sidney Powell, a lawyer who advised President Donald Trump’s campaign, asked a judge on Monday to throw out a $1.3 billion lawsuit accusing her of spreading false conspiracy theories about the November presidential election.
Powell said in a filing in federal court in Washington that there was a “no basis” for the lawsuit brought by Dominion Voting Systems Inc in January.
She said her claims about Dominion were meant to be hyperbolic, and that “reasonable people would not accept such statements as fact but view them only as claims that await testing by the courts through the adversary process.”
Dominion’s lawyer, Tom Clare, said in a statement that the company is eager for the case to move forward, adding that “Powell’s attempt to dismiss the case contradicts her claim that she wants to present her evidence in court.”
Powell, appearing with longtime Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani, charged without evidence at a November news conference that Dominion’s electronic voting systems had switched millions of ballots to Democrat Joe Biden.
