If you haven’t heard of this woman, she is one of the lead lawyers for Donald Trump’s election-overturning campaign of odd lawsuits. She is an actual lawyer with a long resume of doing legitimately lawyery things.
Powell’s claims regarding the election are, even by the grim standards of today’s discourse, lunacy. Today she id an interview on Newsmax in which her interviewer openly told her her claim was “nuts,” and for Newsmax to call a Trumpist nuts takes some nuttery.
It’s going to be hard for me to sum up Powell’s theory, such as it is - well, it’s impossible, because it’s just batshit. I believe her position is that some 7,000,000 votes were switched from Trump to Biden using “algorithms” in Dominion voting machines, at the behest of George Soros, Hugo Chavez (yes, I know Hugo’s been dead for awhile now) the Clintons of course, and literally thousands of other people. Many Republicans, including Georgia governor Kemp and Georgia SOS Raffensberger, are secretly on Dominion’s payroll and doing their nefarious bidding. Bernie Sanders was robbed of the 2016 nomination by Dominion, and knows it, but is also on their payroll.
I’m just scratching the surface here. Even by Trumpian standards it’s bananas. It’s sub-Alex Jones. It’s QAnon stuff, and to be honest, Powell does not look or sound like she is bullshitting (whereas her counterparts Rudy Giulani and Jenna Ellis are obviously bullshitting.) She looks and sounds like she is emotionally disturbed. What’s going on with this lady?
