Rudy Giuliani, attorney for President Donald J. Trump, along with attorney Jenna Ellis of the Trump Campaign on Sunday issued a release announcing “Sidney Powell is practicing law on her own. She is not a member of the Trump Legal Team. She is also not a lawyer for the President in his personal capacity.”
Sidney Powell issued a response statement:
“I understand today’s press release. I will continue to represent #WeThePeople who had their votes for Trump and other Republicans stolen by massive fraud through Dominion and Smartmatic, and will be filing suit soon.”
“The chips will fall where they may, and we will defend the foundations of this great Republic #KrakenOnSteroids.”
General Michael Flynn posted later on his Parler account that Powell had “been suspended from Twitter for 12 hours.”
“She is staying on course to prove the massive deliberate election fraud…”
Powell defended General Flynn when James Comey and Special Counsel Robert Mueller falsely charged Flynn, who was President Trump’s National Security Adviser, with lying to FBI agents during a White House interview on January 24, 2017.
This weekend, prior to the Giuliani-Ellis press release, Powell read part of an affidavit from a high-ranking military witness who was present at the creation of Smartmatic. He testifies that the system was created to throw elections in countries like Venezuela:
“…designed in a way that the system could change the vote of each voter without being detected. He wanted the software to function in such a manner that if the voter were to place their thumbprint or a fingerprint on a scanner, then the thumbprint would be tied to a record of the voter’s name and identity as having voted, but that voter would not be tracked to the changed vote.
He made it clear that the system would have to be setup but not leave any evidence of the changed vote for a specific voter, and that there would be no evidence to show and nothing to contradict that the name or the fingerprint or thumbprint was going with a changed vote.
Smartmatic agreed to create such a system and produce the software and hardware that accomplished the result for President Chavez.”
Powell said this was used by Maduro to win his election in Venezuela. Since she is a military specialist, she may be pursuing retired vice admiral Peter Neffenger, the chairman on the board of directors at Smartmatic since 2018. He is currently in Joe Biden’s presidential transition team.
Neffenger also served as Barack Obama’s Assistant Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security and Administrator of the Transportation Security Administration (TSA).
Smartmatic released a statement last we seeking claiming they have nothing to do with Dominion Voting Systems:
“Smartmatic has never owned any shares or had any financial stake in Dominion Voting Systems. Smartmatic has never provided Dominion Voting Systems with any software, hardware or other technology. The two companies are competitors in the marketplace.”
Last Friday, Powell said the computer and software “system even admits, their own training manual admits that people can go in and do that. That people can go in and put all kinds of votes in a ‘trash’ folder and then ‘trash’ them. There are devices on the internet that can be used to see it and we have multiple people who actually saw it as it was happening.”
“We essentially have some pictures of it and it is terrifying and it is a huge national security issue,” Powell continued. “Why the Department of Justice and the FBI have not done something on this immediately…”
…Powell stated she had videos and “all kinds of” evidence being sent to her team, who she said was having trouble keeping up with allegations of rampant electoral fraud in several key battleground states.
“The information is coming in at a faster rate than our little team can even process it,” Powell said. “Americans are fed up with the corruption, they are starting to report it and come forward and give evidence.”
This is not the first time Twitter has restricted Powell’s account. In June 2020, the social media company said she was suspended for “unusual activity.”
Powell told investigative reporter Sara Carter that she “actually went on a Twitter rampage yesterday to stand up for America, to stand up for honesty, for respect, for decency, to protect our statues and our culture, to protect our freedoms, individual property rights, everything that America was built on. And that’s what comes of it?”
She continued, “We also destroyed the New York Times article that came out yesterday. That was a bunch of abject lies about our case and how we conducted it. Molly McCann, my associate, did a brilliant rebuttal of that on Twitter, and of course, I retweeted that so I don’t know. I also tweeted that black lives matter is a Marxist organization, which you can see by the video of their founder.”
Within hours after her appearance on “The Sara Carter Show,” Powell’s Twitter account was running.
Powell has been lead counsel in more than 500 federal appeals—350 of them as an Assistant United States Attorney and Appellate Section Chief in the Western and Northern Districts of Texas.
She is a past president of the American Academy of Appellate Lawyers and the Bar Association of the Fifth Federal Circuit, and a member of the American Law Institute.
There will be much commentary and opinion this week, but this move may be strategic in that it allows her opportunity to file separate cases, independent of both the Trump Campaign and Trump personally.
The reasons could be many, including keeping media and legal heat off the Trump teams as they pursue their endeavors.
Weekends and especially Sundays are usually when things like this occur, because of less initial news coverage.
The legal team has some big suits being filed in the next couple of days and through November 30th.
This allows Powell to represent others and thereby release the Kraken.
