There's just one problem: There is no Edison County in Michigan, the Detroit Free Press pointed out.

In fact, there is no Edison County in the entire United States of America.

The claim comes from Navid Keshavarz-Nia, who describes himself in the affidavit as a cybersecurity expert working at a defence contractor and has received training from several government agencies. The affidavit is included as an exhibit appended to a lawsuit filed last week by people working with Sidney Powell, a former member of the Trump campaign's legal team.

Keshavarz-Nia's nonsensical claim about Edison County drew widespread attention with a tweet from Jonathan Oosting, a reporter at the nonprofit news organisation Bridge Michigan.

The typo-peppered lawsuit makes many of the same wildly conspiratorial arguments Powell made at a press conference that led to her ouster from Trump's legal team: That the now-dead Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez used voting machines to manipulate election results in his own country, and the very same machines are now being used to manipulate 2020 election results. There's no evidence of the claim, and the companies named in Powell's lawsuits have debunked the arguments made in her lawsuits.

The witness says he hasn't actually looked at the voting machines

In the affidavit, Keshavarz-Nia sais he has not analysed any of the voting machines used in the 2020 election but argued there's "evidence of fraud" based on his analysis of election data.

Much of that data is simply false or based on a misunderstanding of how election data is reported.

Sidney Powell published 2 misspelt election lawsuits against Georgia and Michigan, even after the Trump campaign publicly disowned her

  Sidney Powell published 2 misspelt election lawsuits against Georgia and Michigan, even after the Trump campaign publicly disowned her Sidney Powell, the attorney formerly working with the Trump campaign, has released legal documents challenging election results in Georgia and Michigan. Business Insider found that the Michigan suit had been lodged in federal court, but could not verify the status of the Georgia one. Powell was dropped from Trump's legal team after making outlandish claims that a vast communist conspiracy stole the election from him. Her legal claims repeat many of those allegations, including of Chinese and Iranian interference and digital vote-switching with machines linked to Venezuela's Hugo Chavez.

Attorney Sidney Powell speaks to the press about various lawsuits related to the 2020 election Powell shot back at Carlson during a Friday interview with Fox Business anchor Maria Bartiromo. The lawyers claimed numerous witness statements provided evidence of voter fraud , including

Sidney Powell was among those lawyers who supported Trump in filing lawsuits attempting to challenge the projected results of the US election that saw Joe Biden as the winner and claiming "massive election fraud ".

It's not clear if Keshavarz-Nia had another county in mind when referring to a vote count of more than 100% in "Edison County," but some internet sleuths have made claims about more than 100% of particular counties voting by relying on outdated voter record information or simply using the wrong datasets, USA Today and Reuters have reported.

In another part of the affidavit, Keshavarz-Nia writes that President Donald Trump's lead in Pennsylvania dropped at a rate faster than votes can be counted. But the votes were simply reported by precincts in the timespan he indicates, not actually counted at that time.

Even though Keshavarz-Nia testified to not analysing the machines used in the 2020 election, Powell's lawsuit cites his affidavit to argue that "hundreds of thousands of votes that were cast for President Trump in the 2020 general election were transferred to former Vice-President Biden" â€" which is not true.

Dominion Voting Systems Says It Will Hold Sidney Powell 'Accountable for Any Harm' Connected to Voter Fraud Claims

  Dominion Voting Systems Says It Will Hold Sidney Powell 'Accountable for Any Harm' Connected to Voter Fraud Claims "These assertions in the Powell filing are non-sensical and unsupported by any presentation of evidence," the company said in a statement on Thursday.The company, which provides voting equipment and software to 28 states, gained an elevated public presence this election cycle, in large part due to disputed claims that President Donald Trump and his associates have made about the company over the last few weeks.

The lawsuit ultimately asks a federal judge to force Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer to ignore voters and "transmit certified election results that state that President Donald Trump is the winner of the election."

Michigan has already certified its election results, granting its 16 electoral votes to Biden. The Trump campaign itself withdrew a federal lawsuit trying to challenge the state's election results, and three other lawsuits filed by Republican-aligned groups failed, with the judges overseeing the cases finding no evidence of fraud.

Keshavarz-Nia couldn't be reached for comment, and Powell did not immediately respond to Insider's request for comment.

Judges striking down and dismissing Trump's election lawsuits keep asking: Why'd you wait so long? .
President Donald Trump and his allies keep filing new election lawsuits more than a month after the November 2020 election ended. Many of them challenge voting laws or rules that have been on the books for months - and sometimes years - before the challenges were brought. For example, failed lawsuits that ex-Trump lawyer Sidney Powell has filed are premised on conspiracy theories that purportedly took root in Venezuela over a decade ago. Several judges have issued exasperated orders admonishing Republicans for trying to retroactively disenfranchise voters. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories.
