Federal judge summons several attorneys to face possible sanctions over misleading election results
A federal judge in Detroit is summoning several attorneys who falsely claimed Donald Trump won the most recent presidential election to a hearing where they face possible sanctions.
Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel wants the court to sanction Texas lawyer Sidney Powell and three Michigan attorneys for suing to overturn the presidential election based on claims Nessel says they knew were misleading.
She notes that in a case filed by a voting-machine company against Powell over allegations that ballots were switched from Donald Trump to Joe Biden, the Texas attorney defended herself by saying, quote, “no reasonable person would conclude that the statements were statements of fact.”
The sanctions hearing is set for July 6th.
