Sidney Powell Says She's Not Guilty of Defamation
Because 'No Reasonable Person'
Would Have Believed Her 'Outlandish'
Election Conspiracy Theory

Former Trump campaign lawyer Sidney Powell yesterday responded to the $1.3 billion defamation lawsuit that Dominion Voting Systems filed after she repeatedly accused the company of participating in an elaborate international conspiracy to deny Donald Trump his rightful victory in last year's presidential election. Her defense, more or less, is that she did not really mean what she said.

Comments:

So Sydney Powell said she was basically making stuff up when she talked about the evidence she had and about releasing the Kraken. Why oh why didn't the Trump Administration prepare a crack, experienced legal team without attracting these loons? Everyone knew the Dems would do anything and everything. Gah. The Administration needed a plan and instead, flailed around.

She doesn’t have the money to fight the law suit. Neither did American Thinker. Mike Lindell does, so let’s see what happens there. And we haven’t heard from Rudy yet.

IDK, I believed her. I'm one of the most reasonable people I know. If s he lied about her info, she deserves to go down. I don't want my 'side' to BS me either. That said - it often seems WTP are being lied to from all directions. The Powers That Be are pushing our nation in a direction it would not go on it's own. We are being driven. There's a cliff in the darkness up ahead and we're heading straight for it.

Reason is wrong. This is a hard core legal point between fact and opinion. Suing for ones opinion is a dead end legal fight. That is Powells argument. Her opinion yet to be proven in a court of law is not grounds for the corrupt Dominion law suit.

This Reason article seems to have the effect of disorienting the reader. I'm taking this with a grain of salt. I don't believe my eyes deceived me. Thousands upon thousands showed up at Trump rallies, while a scant few showed up for Biden. And sometimes all we "saw" at Biden's rallies were cars honking. Give me a freaking break!! Trump had the wind behind his back and beneath his wings going into the 2020 election. We are being "gaslighted" every single day by the media. They are trying to disorient us. This "Reason" article is more of it, IMHO. Accept this article's validity at your own peril. Unless, of course, there is something I just don't understand.

Ok, Sydney Powell is a fraud. Always thought that might be the case what with her non-existent Kraken. It doesn't change the fact that the election was stolen. What's sad is Trump had to rely on turkeys like Powell because good help was so hard to find in Washington.

The biggest financial backer of Reason is Koch, who worked hard against Trump mainly because of his wall and policies on illegals. Take anything from this rag with a large grain of salt

Click the link to Powell's site and read her Motion to Dismiss. This story is at best misleading, but I see a lie. I'm no fan of Powell's, as many know. Her Motion is interesting to read. The core questions, besides jurisdiction and other "technicalities", is whether Dominion is a "public figure" under various precedents, and whether Powell's statements are protected political speech. I saw nothing that indicates she didn't mean what she said in various forums.

I see some folks here that have already condemned Sydney Powell. I, for one, will not. I also understand that there are some states that are dumping Dominion. It is my sincere hope that they lose all of their business and lawsuits.

Wait...I don't doubt that Sidney Powell may have stretched some facts or overemphasized them. But did we not hear hear that something like 9,000 votes for Trump were flipped to Biden in some district in Michigan in the wee hours of Nov. 4th? And we heard that they have hard copes of time-stamped vote tabulations to prove it. And didn't we hear about how Dominion's software caused a rejection rate of ballots that was huge, and that those votes had to be "corrected" by poll workers, where they changed the vote to Biden? This whole thing stinks like dead fish. Funny how Trump said pretty much the same things as Powell, but Dominion didn't try to sue Trump

People, PLEASE!!! Before you accept anything regarding this issue at face value, or accuse a well-respected attorney/s of lying, do some research. Read the entire pleading or at least the part that this article is deliberately misconstruing. One sentence was lifted from her attorneys' defense and is being used to slander her case and pretend there was no fraud in the 2020 presidential election and other elections held across the country . Here is an article shedding light on the other side of this issue: https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2021/03/washpost-lies-sidney-powell-voter-fraud-court-claims/ . Don't trust the Gateway Pundit? Read her defense for yourself: https://assets.documentcloud.org/documents/20519858/3-22-21-sidney-powell-defending-the-republic-motion-to-dismiss-dominion.pdf . NOTHING in the political news media is what it appears to be and EVERYTHING must be questioned/investigated to determine the truth. Attorney Powell is not a fool. And neither is her legal team. And while you are at it, Regent University conducted a 7-hour video conference this week (March 23, 2021) on Election Integrity. Some of the claims made by Att'y Powell and cases she filed are briefly discussed. Here is a link to see/hear the conference: https://www.regent.edu/misc/analyzing-american-election-integrity/ It has been broken down into 8 parts representing the words of each speaker. Listen while surfing or working. Do your own research. Then, make up your own mind.

The legal world is not a normal world. It is technical, obscure, ruthless and lethal. Powell is employing an obvious legal strategy of turning the plaintiff's words against himself. You cannot simultaneously say that a claim is unbelievable plus sue on the grounds that the claims may be believed. Powell is right: Dominion is undermining their own mines. Let them defend against that first. The suit, itself, proves her claims are credible by the plaintiff's own admission. Dominion is trying to bludgeon her. She is lawyering to win. God bless you, Sydney Powell

I still subscribe to Reason, but find each issue about half disgusting or foolish and half informative. Guess that is part of being Libertarian. At least is isn’t ninety percent disgusting, like National Review, or 99% like NYT or CNN. I continue to believe Powell, her honesty and evidence.

I clicked on sixteen links embedded within the Reason article and do not see that Reason is in any way "gaslighting." They link directly to Powell's website, which is the opposite of writing one-sided hit piece. I see attacking Reason as a way to deflect for yet another Trump choice that turned out to be more of a liability than an asset, like the curious case of Fauci's tenure within the administration. Just below the Powell article are four other articles, each one highly critical of Biden's and other progressive governmental actions.

This case with Dominion is like the case of a wife who discovers her husband's car parked outside his girlfriend's house, he swears he wasn't there, then files a restraining order against his wife for stalking him.

Images taken during President Joe Biden's first press conference on Thursday showed him using cheat sheets. The 78-year-old Democrat is seen holding one sheet that showed the headshots of journalists at the press conference that he planned to call on. 'The United States now ranks 13th globally in infrastructure quality, down from 5th place in 2002,' one bullet point reads. Despite having the cheat cards, Biden was forced to correct himself after mistakenly saying the US ranked 85th in the world in infrastructure, according to the New York Post.

Civil rights leader and MSNBC host Al Sharpton threatened to accuse Sens. Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona of "supporting racism" over their approval of the Senate filibuster. "The pressure that we are going to put on Sinema and Manchin is calling [the filibuster] racist and saying that they are, in effect, supporting racism," Sharpton told Politico. "Why would they be wedded to something that has those results? Their voters need to know that."

A vehicle mileage tax could be on the table in talks about how to finance the White House’s expected multi-trillion-dollar infrastructure proposal, according to Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg. Buttigieg, who spoke with CNBC’s Kayla Tausche on Friday, also contended that President Joe Biden’s forthcoming plans to rebuild the nation’s roads, bridges and waterways would lead to a net gain for the U.S. taxpayer and not a net outlay. “When you think about infrastructure, it’s a classic example of the kind of investment that has a return on that investment,” he said.(Snip) “I’m hearing a lot of appetite to make sure

President Joe Biden’s administration is weighing the idea of declaring gun violence as a public health emergency, in order to take dramatic executive action to tackle gun rights.Biden officials and gun control activists discussed the idea, according to the New York Times, as well as other executive actions that could tackle gun rights nationwide.If Biden declared a public health emergency, he could shift more funding to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives to increase their inspections of gun dealerships. It would also loosen up available funds for community gun violence programs.The administration is also exploring a way to classify gun kits (including 80 percent uppers/lowers) as firearms,
