Fox News’ Tucker Carlson fabricated some sort of snit with one of President Trump’s attorneys last week. Since then, many of Carlson’s own viewers have turned on him. This is not a time for fair-weather foxhole mates. It’s a time for Americans to stand firmly with President Trump if they want to keep our Republic. Some other prominent Republicans are now jumping on the Bash-Sidney-Powell bandwagons as well. To all of those people, here’s a suggestion: Underestimate Sidney Powell at your own peril.
Sidney Powell is not on the President of the United States’ legal team because she’s some ambulance-chasing fraud. She’s on the president’s team because she’s the real deal.
A lot of Americans had never heard of Sidney Powell before she became Gen. Mike Flynn’s attorney. The Russian collusion plot was hatched in January of 2017, before President Trump had even been sworn in. A meeting took place in the White House with Barack Obama, then-Vice President Joe Biden, Sally Yates, James Comey, Peter Strzok and possibly others. After spying on Gen. Flynn as part of Trump’s transition team, they concluded that he had done nothing illegal – but they were going to get Flynn anyway.
Comey and Strzok set up the infamous White House meeting with Flynn, in which they caught him in a perjury trap. They removed Flynn from the picture by charging him with lying to the FBI. They didn’t want Flynn – as Trump’s National Security Advisor – to uncover the fact that the Obama administration had been spying on the Trump family and campaign.
The Department of Justice railroaded Flynn into entering “guilty” plea by threatening to go after his son. Flynn’s first team of attorneys were in on the fix with the DOJ. It was only after Flynn fired them that he hired Sidney Powell to represent him.
Gee, does anyone remember what happened next?
Sidney Powell walked into that den of vipers and convinced Flynn to withdraw his guilty plea. She took on the US Department of Justice, the FBI and the CIA at the same time… and got the Department of Justice to recommend that the case be dropped. Sidney Powell uncovered the explosive memo that ultimately proved the Russian collusion hoax was hatched in the Oval Office, with Joe Biden and Barack Obama working as active participants in the entire illegal scheme.
Flynn is still sort of in limbo today, because an unruly federal judge refuses to dismiss the case. Even though the prosecution has basically walked away after asking for the case to be dropped, the judge is trying to figure out a way to prosecute and sentence Flynn all on his own. That judge will be lucky to still be on the bench when that gets sorted out.
But don’t lose sight of what Sidney Powell accomplished in that case. She took on the FBI, the Department of Justice and the CIA… and proceeded to kick their asses.
And now we’re supposed to throw her under bus, just because Tucker Carlson had some sort of argument with her? Should we “diss” the woman who almost singlehandedly destroyed the Deep State’s fraying hopes of ever convincing anyone that maybe there was something to that whole Russian collusion hoax?
Sidney Powell has made some really big claims about the 2020 election that she says she’ll be able to prove in court. In this case, she’s fighting some local election officials, the Post Office, a shady voting software and hardware company (Dominion Voting Systems and others), and the media. With that lineup of enemies, I like her chances – especially after the way she thumped the CIA and the FBI in the Flynn case.
Meanwhile, Tucker Carlson’s ratings are finally starting to take a hit and he’s being hammered relentlessly on social media. No lightweights in the foxholes, please. This is a serious fight for serious adults.
If Sidney Powell is gaslighting all of us, that would be an extremely odd choice for an attorney to make. If she’s lying and can’t prove her claims in court, and ultimately costs Trump the election, she would go down as one of the most hated figures in American history. Why would anyone commit that level of career and reputation suicide? The Joe Biden campaign is taking her seriously enough that they jump-started their fundraising apparatus; they’re asking for $30 million in donation to help battle against Sidney Powell.
If the Biden campaign takes Sidney Powell that seriously, the rest of us should, too.
