Powell's Legal Defense: ‘Reasonable People' Wouldn't Believe Her Election Fraud Claims 1

Ex-Trump attorney Sidney Powell’s weekslong campaign to invalidate the results of the 2020 election was not based in fact, her lawyers said Monday.

Powell, who for a time was part of former President Donald Trump’s legal team fighting the election results, repeatedly and baselessly claimed that votes were illegally switched on Dominion voting machines.
