President Donald Trump’s defense team put on a nutty press conference earlier today. As they appeared at Republican National Committee Headquarters in Washington, D.C. To give an update on their efforts in challenging reported results of the presidential race.
Attorney Sidney Powell made some staggering claims during this event. She called out ex-Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez for his alleged role in U.S. election fraud. Even though Chavez passed away in 2013.
Powell argued a “massive influence of communist money through Venezuela, Cuba, and likely China” worked to influence the voting process. She also named software and hardware used to manipulate the counts.
“The Dominion voting system, the Smartmatic software and the software that goes in other computerized voting systems as well, not just Dominion, 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.”
She added, “We have one very strong witness who has explained how it all works…It is a stunning, detailed affidavit because he was with Hugo Chavez being briefed on how it worked. He was with Hugo Chavez when he saw it operate. To make sure the election came out his way. [The] expressed purpose for creating this software.”
The conservative counsel is known for her client former National Security Advisor Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn. Powell is now taking a lead role in Trump’s legal challenges with Giuliani is in charge after two major law firms recently had stopped representing Trump.
Plus Powell went on drawing further connections to a series of right-wing boogeymen: George Soros, the Clinton Foundation, the Venezuelan government, Antifa, and others. In addition, Giuliani grabbed headlines for his performance. By quoting the movie ‘My Cousin Vinny’ and having hair dye stream down his face.
A key figure who helped tip the 2000 presidential contest in favor of Pres. George W. Bush has spoken out. Attorney Theodore Olson, who successfully argued Bush’s case before the Supreme Court in 2000’s election shared his view on this contest.
While making it known he thinks that Democrat Joe Biden will be certified as the winner. Olson reportedly said during a panel hosted by the Federalist Society, “The Framers, they separated the powers because they knew that individuals would be flawed. They put in lots of checks, and we just experienced one, the election.”
Plus he added, “To the extent that the citizens of this country did not like the manner in which President Trump spoke, or the manner in which he threatened people or the manner in which he executed the laws, they exercised their franchise. And we have — I do believe the election is over — we do have a new president.”
Trump has rejected calls for him to admit defeat. Even as multiple news outlets called the presidential race in Biden’s favor last Saturday. But nothing is for certain yet.
However, behind the scenes, one major player on Trump’s legal team is convinced the results will be reversed.
Powell says, “We’re fixin’ to overturn the results of the election in multiple states, and President Trump won by not just hundreds of thousands of votes but by millions of votes that were shifted by this software that was designed expressly for that purpose.”
In addition, “We have sworn witness testimony of why the software was designed. It was designed to rig elections. He was fully briefed on it. He saw it happen in other countries. It was exported internationally for profit by the people that are behind Smartmatic and Dominion.”
“They did this on purpose. It was calculated and they’ve done it before. We have evidence from 2016 in California. We have so much evidence I feel like it’s coming in through a fire hose.” This could get interesting.
