Powell was one of the main people pushing the theory that Dominion voting machines were used to rig the 2020 presidential election in favour of Biden. The allegation emerged in light of a "glitch" in the Dominion machines, which flipped several thousand GOP votes to the Democrats in one Georgia county.

Dominion Voting Systems CEO John Poulos has revealed in an interview with the Axios Re:Cap podcast that his company is preparing a lawsuit against Sidney Powell over her claims that Dominion machines were used to alter the results of the presidential election, as well as other statements regarding the company.

"It's imminent. She is, by far in our opinion, the most egregious and prolific purveyor of the falsities against Dominion. Her statements have caused real damage, and they're demonstrably false", Poulos said.

Dominion's CEO clarified that claims about voting machines purportedly being rigged are not new and are routinely used by candidates who lost. However, Poulos argued, Powell was deliberately "spreading false information […] with malicious intent". He added that Dominion could be filing lawsuits against members of Donald Trump's legal team peddling such theories too, but failed to specify any names or indicate whether POTUS will be among them.

Powell, an election lawyer supporting President Donald Trump's claims of voter fraud but who is not officially included in his legal team, claimed that Dominion voting machines manipulated votes in the presidential election in favour of Biden. She went on to claim that foreign governments had a hand in developing and producing the machines. Powell alleged that Hugo Chavez, the late president of Venezuela who died in 2013, had specifically ordered the production of Dominion voting systems, but failed to back up her claims with evidence.

Dominion machines were indeed used in several of Georgia's counties, as well as in other states. In one of Georgia's counties, these machines experienced what was described as a glitch that flipped several thousand Republican votes to the Democrats. Following the revelation of the incident, US President Donald Trump and his lawyers demanded that recounts and checks be conducted in states and counties where such machines were used, accusing Dominion of conspiring with the Democratic Party to rig the election in favour of Biden, whose victory POTUS continues to deny.

The president and his legal team filed dozens of lawsuits in several battleground states to challenge the election results on the grounds of election law violations and voter fraud, including with the use of Dominion machines. However, all of these suits have been systematically rejected in courts, mostly over a purported lack of evidence proving the wrongdoing. Despite this, Trump has not abandoned his claims that the election was "stolen" from him.
