Powell explained to a federal court in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Wednesday that she wanted to have the identity of a witness called “Spider,” who claims to be a former military intelligence analyst, sealed, The Washington Examiner reported.

Brad Heath, a reporter with Reuters, pointed out on Twitter that the data in the lawsuit filings indicate that “Spider” is actually a man called Josh Merritt.

Spider’s affidavit has been used by Powell in her lawsuits in states such as Arizona, Michigan and Wisconsin.

“Dominion Voting system and software are accessible – and was compromised by rogue actors, including foreign interference by Iran and China,” Spider claimed in the affidavit, accoridng to the Examiner.
