Former Donald Trump campaign lawyer Sidney Powell asked the Supreme Court to overturn Joe Biden’s election victories in Michigan and Georgia, continuing with a flurry of long shot litigation despite repeated rejections in the courts.
The latest requests appeared on the court’s online docket Tuesday, a day after the Electoral College confirmed Biden’s victory. Although Trump hasn’t conceded, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell congratulated Biden as president-elect on Tuesday.
The Supreme Court has already spurned two efforts to nullify Biden victories, first a challenge to his Pennsylvania triumph and then a Texas lawsuit that sought to reverse the results in four pivotal states.
