Report: Sidney Powell summoned to Michigan court hearing next month, facing possible sanctions
State attorney general asked for penalties to be leveled against lawyer.
The Facts Inside Our Reporter’s Notebook
Attorney Sidney Powell has been summoned to a federal court in Michigan next month to potentially face sanctions over earlier claims of widespread fraud in the 2020 election.
Powell became well-known late last year for leveling broad allegations of voter fraud in Michigan and elsewhere, claiming that Joe Biden had actually lost the election and that then-incumbent President Donald Trump was the rightful victor.
Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel had asked a district court to sanction Powell after the latter lost a lawsuit arguing that Michigan's electors be disqualified and the state's electoral votes be given to Trump.
The court documents set a Jul. 6 date for the hearing.
