I just got this opinion on the Sidney Powell mystery
Here is the skinny on Sydney Powell “not being on Trump’s legal team.” No one on Trump’s team can file any lawsuit against Joe Biden. That’s the technicality. Sydney Powell is not on a personal retainer from Trump or his campaign. So she can file any lawsuit she wants and that’s how it works! She can go into Detroit, Philly, Milwaukee, or any other city where voter fraud was perpetrated and take affidavits as to the voter fraud there. Then she can file on behalf of those voters against those election officials. She can file on behalf of GOP officials tasked with counting who were wrongfully thrown out of being able to count. She can file a lot of Mr vs Mrs type of lawsuits. She just can’t directly file any CRIMINAL lawsuits against Joe Biden on behalf of Trump. Get it? She works on behalf of Trump and his voters but not on behalf of Trump vs Biden. So she can go after Election officials or poll workers or Dominion.
Is this opinion correct? To my untrained legal mind it seems plausible. Please let me know what you think.

UPDATE: Sidney Powell toldTheBlaze TV host Glenn Beck: “We will start putting documents online and sending them to people like you, as soon as we possibly can. I would hope that we could start that by this weekend.”
The Trump campaign has charged voting irregularities in dozens of lawsuits since Election Day in a bid to slow the certification of state vote counts.
Two days ago on Thursday, November 19, 2020, at a press conference at the Republican National Convention headquarters in Washington, D.C., President Trump’s legal team presented a summary of the evidence they’ve collected thus far on a “massive, well-funded, coordinated effort to deny” U.S. voters their constitutional rights in the 2020 presidential election.
None of the national MSM, except for FoxNews, covered the press conference.
Representing Trump’s legal team were:
Rudy Giuliani, Trump’s personal attorney and former New York governor.
Sidney Powell, a federal appellate attorney who has fought so valiantly for Gen. Michael Flynn.
Jenna Ellis, senior legal advisor to the Trump 2020 Campaign.
Here’s a video of the press conference (h/t FOTM reader BoyDownTheLane):
As reported by Washington Examiner‘s White House correspondent Katherine Doyle, in the press conference, Ellis pointed out if the voting irregularities are not investigated and corrected, “no election will be secure from here on out.”
Citing sworn affidavits and allegations of election fraud in several states, including Pennsylvania, Giuliani (who is now mocked for hair dye dripping down his face during the presser — can’t he afford a better hair dye?) said the team had “enough to overturn any election” and that “If you count the lawful votes, Trump won Wisconsin” because about 100,000 absentee ballots in Wisconsin were tallied that should not have been. He also said the campaign was “about to file a major lawsuit in Georgia,” with more litigation ahead, possibly in New Mexico and Arizona.
The legal team linked voting irregularities across the country to a “centralized” conspiracy helmed by George Soros, the Clinton Foundation, Joe Biden, and the deceased Venezuelan leader Hugo Chavez. Powell also claimed there is evidence of the “massive influence of communist money through Venezuela, Cuba, and likely China, and interference with our elections.”
The Trump attorneys leveled their most inflammatory charges at the computer technology of Dominion Voting SystemsCorporation which was used by some states to count votes. Powell said:
“The Dominion Voting Systems, the Smartmatic technology software … were created in Venezuela at the direction of Hugo Chavez to make sure he never lost an election after one constitutional referendum came out the way he did not want it to come out.
We have one very strong witness who has explained how it all works. His affidavit is attached to the pleadings of Lin Wood and the lawsuit he filed in Georgia. … As soon as he saw multiple states shut down the voting on the night of the election, he knew the same thing was happening here.”
According to Powell, although the Dominion software was rigged to “yank” votes from Trump by a pre-arranged ratio, Trump was winning so massively on election night that the Democrats went into a panic and stopped counting votes in the battleground states, so as to give themselves time to “readjust” the Dominion software to ensure a Biden win. Powell said:
“Trump won by a landslide, and we are going to prove it, and we are going to reclaim the United States of America for the people who vote for freedom.”
Note: Attorney Lin Wood filed an affidavit from ex-GOP congressional candidate Russell Ramslad which reportedly showed more votes were cast in at least 19 precincts in Michigan during the 2020 presidential election than the entire population of eligible voters in those precincts. Below is a screenshot of the 19 precincts taken from the affidavit (source: Powerline):
In other Michigan precincts/twonships, the number of votes cast was 96% to 100% of the number of voters, which meant the voter turnout rate was a hard-to-believe 95% to 100%.
But according to John Hinderaker of the legal blog Power Line, who claims to have seen the affidavit, some of the precincts are actually located in Minnesota and other parts of the Midwest, not Michigan. Hinderaker writes:
Here’s the problem: the townships and precincts listed in paragraphs 11 and 17 of the affidavit are not in Michigan. They are in Minnesota. Monticello, Albertville, Lake Lillian, Houston, Brownsville, Runeberg, Wolf Lake, Height of Land, Detroit Lakes, Frazee, Kandiyohi–these are all towns in Minnesota. I haven’t checked them all, but I checked a lot of them, and all locations listed in paragraphs 11 and 17 that I looked up are in Minnesota, with no corresponding township in Michigan. This would have been obvious to someone from this state, but Mr. Ramsland is a Texan and the lawyers are probably not natives of either Minnesota or Michigan.
Dominion has “categorically” denied charges of fraud, such as vote-switching and software errors. On Nov. 11, a panel of voting technology companies, including Dominion, issued a joint statement with Christopher Krebs, director of the Department of Homeland Security’s Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Security Agency, vouching for the reliability of the 2020 election. “There is no evidence that any voting system deleted or lost votes, changed votes, or was in any way compromised,” the statement reads.
Six days later on Nov. 17, Trump fired Krebs in a tweet, saying that Krebs’ defense of the security of the election was “highly inaccurate.” Indeed, without having seen the evidence amassed by Trump’s legal team, how would Krebs know that the election had not been compromised?
Honest people do not fear transparency.
Despite its denial of any wrongdoing, on Thursday night after the legal team’s press conference, Dominion Voting Systems abruptly backed out of attending a fact-finding hearingthat was set for Friday morning with the Pennsylvania House State Government Committee “to help identify and correct any irregularities in the election process.”
Committee Chair Seth Grove said he wants to know why a company with nothing to hide would back out, and that the 1.3 million Pennsylvanians who used Dominion’s voting machines have been “hung out to dry and slapped in their faces.” (ZeroHedge)
Additionally, tweeter Rosie memos discovered that over 40% (100+) of 243 Dominion employees have deleted their profiles on LinkedInsince election day.
Umm why are all the Dominion people deleting their profiles on LinkedIn AND looks like all their software engineers are in Serbia. Nothing could go wrong 🥴 pic.twitter.com/TUfkSvzo0Z
On October 22, 2018, asked for their thoughts about the “caravans” of tens of thousands of impressively healthy and well-dressed, mainly young, military-age male “migrants” marching/trucking/bussing across Guatemala and Mexico toward the U.S. border, a panel of independent voters surprised “Fox & Friends” co-host Steve Doocy by expressing sympathy for the “migrants” because, as the panel put it, the poor “migrants” are just fleeing poverty, oppression and violence.
One independent voter said:
“I think our immigration laws need to be modernized and updated. But this country is founded on immigration. And all of us come from immigrants.”
“There’s a humanitarian crisis taking place in Central America. And yet, this issue gets turned into a complete political football. There’s very little honest discussion about what’s actually happening, it gets turned into talking points.”
Yet another independent voter, when asked how he would feel if the “migrant caravan” reached 20,000 people, grandly said:
“This is the mightiest country on the planet, I think we can handle a caravan of people, unarmed, coming to this country.”
The unexpected sympathetic reaction from the panel of independent voters was celebrated by the Hate America Media (HAM). Washington Post praises the panel as heroic “rebels”; Salon commends the panel for rejecting Fox News‘ “fearmongering”; while The Hill snickeringly calls Fox News’ assemblage of the panel as an “epic fail”.
But it’s not just the panel of independent voters.
On October 22, 2018, Fox News co-host Brian Kilmeadesaid about the “migrants”:
“I imagine these are good people. Most of them are good people. I’m sure some are up to no good. I’m sure they just want a better life. I get that.”
On October 29, supposedly conservatie Fox News host Lou Dobbstook issue with his guest, Sidney Powell, for saying the “migrants” heading toward our southern border will bring into the United States diseases like polio that the U.S. hadn’t seen in decades. Dobbs defended the invading horde, calling them “illegal immigrants”:
“You can’t very well blame that disease on illegal immigrants. We don’t know the cause of it…I don’t think that’s fair.”
Just remember that the above examples are not from the overtly-Leftwing media. It’s supposedly conservative Fox News.
Bishop Jaime Calderón Calderón of Tapachula, Mexico even claims to know God’s mind — that God will reward those who assist the “caravan” invaders. He said:
“I am deeply grateful to my brother priests and all those people from our parishes who have gone far beyond their means to be able to provide for others. Know that God will always reward that goodness which you have shown.”
These are the disease-free, “unarmed”, “good” “immigrants” who are just fleeing “inhumane” conditions in their home countries, and whom the good bishop urges us to help:
(3) On October 29, 2018, in a town in Chiapas, two Honduran “migrants”, one of them a minor, “attacked with firearm” the Mexican Federal Police. As recounted by the Mexican Ministry of Interior, police arrested the two “foreign nationals” — Carlos “N”, 17, and Jerson “N”, 22. They shot at police with a 38 mm Glock pistol, containing “9 useful cartridges”. “Fortunately, the assailants’ weapon failed, so they could not hurt any element of the FP.”
(4)Hours after the shooting in Chiapas, a group of Central American “migrants”facing deportation set fire to an immigration facility in Chiapas in an apparent attempt to escape. As reported by Breitbart, Oct. 30, 2018:
The fire was reportedly started at a facility dual-purposed as a checkpoint and makeshift detention center for Mexico’s National Migration Institute (INM) in Pijijiapan, Chiapas, when a group of migrants housed there set fire to their mattresses, Televisa Noticias reported. According to local public safety director Jaime Marroquin, authorities were housing 21 men, five women, and three children which were in the process of being deported. The migrants reportedly set fires to give cover to their escape.
Firefighters responded to the scene while Mexican Federal Police officers detained the alleged runaways and moved them to a large immigration facility in Tapachula, Chiapas.
The caravan began its journey earlier this month in Honduras and publicly announced its intent to reach the U.S. border. The Mexican government offered the caravan temporary jobs, health care, and education if they agreed to stay in southern Mexico and follow the country’s legal procedures for requesting asylum. The group largely turned down the offer, however, according to the INM, 111 migrants agreed and requested Mexican identification documents.
