2020 ELECTION/TRUMP PEOPLE: “Sidney Powell and other conservative lawyers who sued to overturn President Joe Biden’s 2020 victory in Michigan asked a U.S. appeals court on Thursday to overturn an order sanctioning them for pressing ‘frivolous’ election claims.

During oral arguments that lasted more than two hours, the 6th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals pressed Powell to defend her November 2020 Michigan lawsuit, which sought to declare then-President Donald Trump winner of the state’s presidential election…

U.S. District Judge Linda Parker in Detroit rejected Powell’s lawsuit in December 2020, saying it was filled with ‘speculation and conjecture that votes for President Trump were destroyed, discarded or switched.’

Parker sanctioned Powell, L. Lin Wood and other lawyers in December 2021 for bringing the case… She fined them $175,000 and ordered them to complete 12 hours of continuing legal education classes.”
