Sidney Powell’s evidence undermines yet another crucial Trump claim

by Jessica

Veteran ally of Donald Trump, Sidney Powell, an attorney known for promoting election conspiracy theories alongside a woman who claims to communicate with the wind, has entered into a plea agreement in the Georgia election racketeering case.

As part of this agreement, Powell admitted that the former president had called her multiple times to inquire about the progress of her legal endeavors aimed at overturning the 2020 presidential election.

This development poses a challenge, observed Washington Post reporter Aaron Blake on X, as it contradicts a defense put forth by the former president on his Truth Social platform, where he attempted to distance himself from Powell.

In a social media post on December 14, 2020, Trump welcomed Powell, along with Jenna Ellis and Rudy Giuliani, as part of a “truly great team” working on the “legal effort to defend OUR RIGHT to FREE and FAIR ELECTIONS.”

This suggested, at the very least, that he had engaged Powell for legal services. Earlier reports also indicate that Trump contemplated appointing Powell as a special counsel to investigate fraud, a move Giuliani reportedly prevented.

These revelations unfold amid an ultimatum from Judge Tanya Chutkan in the federal 2020 election case, urging Trump to declare whether he plans to rely on an “advice of counsel” defense.

Such a defense might shift responsibility to his attorneys for his actions but could also jeopardize attorney-client privilege, potentially exposing his communications with legal counsel to scrutiny.
