During an interview on MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell’s media venture on Saturday, “Kraken” lawyer Sidney Powell slammed Fox News.
Powell slammed the network on “Lindell TV” after MyPillow pulled its ads from Fox News over the network’s refusal to run ads promoting the debunked conspiracy theory that Donald Trump won the 2020 election.
Powell, who is facing legal consequences for her efforts to repeal the election, increased her hyperbole during her appearance on Lindell’s podcast.
“Fox has become part of the propaganda arm of the Democrat Socialist Communist Party, just like all the other mainstream media outlets are,” Powell argued.

To be clear, there is no Democrat Socialist Communist Party.
“Again, it’s just pure fascism,” she added, despite her role in attempting to abolish democracy in order to keep a right-wing demagogue in power.

Powell and Lin Wood’s lawyers Julia Haller, Howard Kleinhendler, and Donald Campbell tried their best to explain why their clients didn’t correct any false information in their Michigan election documents during the Monday sanction hearings for the two pro-Trump attorneys.
STORY CONTINUES BELOW...
Detroit lawyer David Fink accused Powell and Wood, with a simple google search, of being reckless in making quotes in the court document. In Detroit, Fink claimed Powell and Wood had a vote count of over 100%. Fink said anyone would search and find the correct percentage on the county clerk’s website for the actual election results.
A November 6 report revealed that a software configuration error caused the numbers to miscalculate but was corrected. Nevertheless, that ‘more than 100%’ claim was brought in the court filing and Fink said that those numbers were then employed in Georgia Republican Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger by former President Donald Trump.
“All it took was 30 seconds for me to look on the internet to find the answer,” said Fink about the claim.
Powell and Wood’s lawyers said these lawyers are not “statisticians” and in the court filing, they wrote that they quoted more than 100% of the voters in the report.
Fink has argued that as lawyers in court, they have due diligence to confirm their documents. Powell and Wood’s lawyer explained they cited the “report” correctly and that they had not the statistical knowledge they had for a better knowledge, which is over 100%.
Fink continued that everyone in the affair appeared to blame all others, but it had a duty not to make false statements in court under the Michigan court rules.
The lawyers of Powell and wood have claimed that if the Court allows them to hold the hearing or a trial and appeal to the testimony referred to in the court document, they could defend their court filed.
According to a forthcoming book by Michael Wolff, tensions with Rudy Giuliani arose as Powell became one of the faces of then-President Donald Trump’s campaign legal team.
Wolff detailed the showdown in his book, “Landslide: The Final Days of the Trump Presidency.”
Giuliani, who was Trump’s personal lawyer and has backed up many of the former president’s debunked election claims, reportedly called Powell “crazy” during an outburst.
Giuliani retaliated against Powell after the former New York City mayor questioned some of Powell’s most bizarre election theories.
“I didn’t come here to kiss your f—ing ring,” she reportedly said.
The book goes on to describe how Powell and Giuliani went into separate rooms to try to resolve the situation, while Trump campaign lawyer Jenna Ellis sought out the former president.
“The two of them [Powell and Giuliani] ended up in separate rooms sulking, with Ellis calling the president to moderate. The president made clear that he wanted Powell on the team. He was embracing everybody (or anybody) who agreed that the election had been stolen from him.”
Powell’s conspiracy theories were amplified on a much broader scale as she became more entrenched in Trump’s circle.
“In the days immediately following the election, she was the author on Fox of operatic new conspiracies, going much further out than anything the president had yet reached: computer systems had been programmed to switch Trump votes to Biden votes, with the CIA in on it. Now she had been telling Giuliani and the team that the conspiracy ran even deeper: Trump’s landslide victory was upended by an international plot.”
Powell falsely claimed in interviews with the media that Dominion Voting Systems skewed the US presidential election in favor of now-President Joe Biden.
She claimed that Dominion secretly aided a rival election-technology company, Smartmatic had ties to late Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, and then offered no evidence to prove the allegation.
The consequences of her unsubstantiated accusations had taken a toll over time.
After being purged from the campaign team, Giuliani and Ellis announced in late November that Powell was “practicing law on her own.”
However, The New York Times reported just weeks later that Trump was considering appointing Powell as a special counsel to investigate voter fraud.
The plan was opposed by the majority of Trump’s advisers, including Giuliani, according to The New York Times.
Dominion is suing Powell for $1.3 billion in defamation over her debunked election claims, and the election technology supplier is also suing Giuliani and MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell.
Wolff also wrote that Trump campaign lawyer Jenna Ellis received an email last November that forwarded a note from Republican National Committee (RNC) chief counsel Justin Riemer, with the GOP official questioning the former president’s election claims.
Riemer reportedly wrote to his RNC colleagues in the note, questioning why they were supporting Trump’s unfounded claims of election fraud, while also stating that the organization raised more money fighting Democrats than challenging election results.
Grifters gotta grift.

Ellis, who was at dinner with Rudy Giuliani and former New York City police commissioner Bernie Kerik, shared her phone for everyone to see the message, which left them “stunned.”
It was just another example, according to the assembled group, of Trump having to fight the GOP establishment, as Wolff details in “Landslide: The Final Days of the Trump Presidency.”
