Attorney Sidney Powell released a statement tonight on CBS News clarifying that she “will continue to defend the foundations of this great Republic” and that she will be “filing suit soon” against Dominion and Smartmatic for allegedly electronically switching of millions of votes from President Donald Trump to Joe Biden, in what she describes as “massive fraud.” This comes after the Trump Campaign announced that she was not a member of the Trump Legal Team on November 22, 2020.
Rudy Giuliani’s official statement from the Trump Campaign reads as follows: “Sidney Powell is practicing law on her own. She is not a member of the Trump Legal Team. She is also not a lawyer for the President in his personal capacity.”
The statement sparked confusion and concern among Trump supporters, who took to the internet to voice their opinions on the new developments. Bryson Gray, a popular Christian, conservative, Trump-supporting musical artist went on Twitter today and said this:
Personally, I think it was dumb to release a statement like that with no context. It’s just gonna bring down the morale of the base because people are gonna think too much of it. Very dumb move IMO.

Dinesh D’Souza, creator of the pro-Trump documentary “Trump Card” had this to say:

While various discussions ensued on what could possibly be going on with the controversial, swamp-angering Sidney Powell, former National Security Advisor and “Spygate” victim, General Michael Flynn gave Americans an update to the situation when he tweeted this:
Flynn was not the only deep state target to put out a tweet amid the drama. Former 2016 Trump Campaign foreign policy advisor, George Papadopoulos, tweeted this cryptic message:
We have the numbers. We have the power.

For Powell’s part, she issued a response to CBS News over the weekend.
“I understand today’s press release. I will continue to represent #WeThePeople who had their votes for Trump and other Republicans stolen by massive fraud through Dominion and Smartmatic, and we will be filing suit soon. The chips will fall where they may, and we will defend the foundations of this great Republic. #KrakenOnSteroids”
While Powell has brought national attention to Dominion and Smartmatic for potentially undermining the integrity of the 2020 Presidential Election, this is not the first time these companies have faced scrutiny or criticism. Documents found on Wikileaks have outlined several concerns that the U.S. State Department had with Smartmatic in 2006. The documents state this:
Smartmatic is a riddle. The company came out of nowhere to snatch a multli-million dollar contract in an electoral process that ultimately reaffirmed Chavez’ mandate and all-but destroyed his political opposition. The perspective we have here, after several discussions with Smartmatic, is that the company is de facto Venezuelan and operated by Venezuelans. The identity of Smartmatic’s true owners remains a mystery. Our best guess is that there are probably several well-known Venezuelan businessmen backing the company who prefer anonymity either because of their political affiliation or, perhaps, because they manage the interests of senior Venezuelan government officials.
The 2006 Wikileaks papers are still available online.
Dominion voting machines have also been known to be easily hacked and manipulated, as was reported on during a segment on MSNBC in 2019. The video was uncovered by Jack Posobiec and subsequently posted on his Twitter account. Watch the video on Twitter here:
Powell claims that President Trump was fraudulently cheated out of victory in the 2020 Presidential Election as a result of companies like Dominion and Smartmatic electronically manipulating the vote count in various states across America. If she can successfully prove that President Trump won the election by millions of votes, of which were lost due to widespread voter fraud, she will have uncovered the largest criminal scandal in the history of the United States.
For now, the country awaits, but as Powell noted on Sunday Morning Futures with Maria Bartiromo, she does not have a record of making claims she can’t prove.
