Yesterday’s post featured top lawyer L Lin Wood Jr’s work for President Trump’s campaign team to prove voter fraud in Georgia.

Today’s post features another top lawyer, Sidney Powell, who is also working on the voter fraud issue for Team Trump. She is well known to Trump supporters for her continuing tireless work representing Gen Michael Flynn.

Of Ms Powell, Lin Wood says:

I mentioned Sidney Powell earlier this week in my summary of Judge Jeanine Pirro’s Fox News programme of Saturday, November 14.

Like Lin Wood, Powell is a redoubtable Southerner.

Breitbart’s John Nolte wrote about both lawyers on Monday, November 16 — ‘Nolte: Sidney Powell and Lin Wood Promise There’s a Ton of Voter Fraud’.

Of Powell, Nolte writes (emphases mine):

Sidney Powell is no joke. She served as a federal prosecutor for ten years and earned a national reputation as the attorney who swooped in, convinced Ret. Gen. Michael Flynn to withdraw his guilty pleas, and successfully pressured the Justice Department to drop its charges. She was a stalwart and regular presence in exposing the Russia Collusion Hoax, and by my count, everything she said was going to happen did happen.

This is a serious woman. There’s no circus atmosphere around her. And she is pledging, as she did over the weekend on Maria Bartiromo’s Sunday Morning Futures, that they have the goods, that they can prove there was enough voter fraud to overturn Joe Biden’s lead.

“There has been a massive and coordinated effort to steal this election from we the people of the United States of America, to delegitimize and destroy votes for Donald Trump, to manufacture votes for Joe Biden,” she said.

I posted the link to that interview in my Judge Jeanine post. Here it is. Breitbart‘s copy has been removed:

Sidney Powell has been examining voter fraud in several states, including the swing states so important to Trump’s results (see the Lou Dobbs video in this link).

On Friday, November 6, three days after the election, she told Lou Dobbs that the voting machines are partly to blame. The operation referred to below is one that US intelligence agencies use in foreign countries when they want to influence an election result. This operation was never intended to be used against the American people. And yet …

Sky News Australia were already on to this before the election — Saturday, October 31. Their seasoned commentator Alan Jones is fearless:

It is hard to fathom how much the Democrats have done and are doing:

On Monday, November 9, Powell tweeted about Georgia’s results, which are currently being recounted:

On Wednesday, November 11, she picked up on a detailed thread from TheDonald.win alleging voter fraud in several instances:

On Friday, November 13, she told Lou Dobbs that she will soon be ready to ‘release the Kraken’. I can hardly wait:

Highlights of the interview follow:

On Sunday, November 15, Powell gave an interview to Maria Bartiromo. She said that information has been coming in so quickly and in such volumes that she is struggling to ‘process it all’. She explained the connection between the voting machines and a member of Joe Biden’s transition team, a retired Navy admiral:

Hmm:

This is how a machine-driven voting anomaly might have worked on Tuesday, November 3:

Real Clear Politics has more on Powell’s interview with Bartiromo. Powell said that CIA director Gina Haspel should be dismissed:

President Trump’s lawyer Sidney Powell told FNC’s “Sunday Morning Futures” with Maria Bartiromo that CIA director Gina Haspel should be fired for ignoring warnings about the Dominion voter software ahead of the 2020 election.

“It should never have been installed anywhere and we are going to show the public exactly how rotten the entire state is,” she said.

“Why Gina Haspel is still there in the CIA is beyond my comprehension,” Powell said. “She should be fired immediately.”

Wow.

What exactly, though, does ‘releasing the Kraken’ mean in terms of the election?

Clarice Feldman, a regular contributor to American Thinker, reminds us that, on September 12, 2018, Trump issued an Executive Order (EO) prohibiting foreign influence in American elections:

it cannot be doubted that two years ago he anticipated foreign interference with our election process and issued in an Executive Order a means to investigate and punish any person, group or country which engaged in such international election fraud

It’s a lengthy order and I’ll try to note some of the most significant portions of it. It tasks the DNI with preparing a report of the investigative results of such interference no later than 45 days after an election

Clarice Feldman goes on to elaborate on the contents of the EO. She says:

Did this Executive Order set in place a means to investigate computer manipulation overseas to affect our election and did such an investigation reveal that this occurred and significantly affected the election in several key states? If so, the reported results must be amended substantially to discard the false count, or other measures taken to prevent certifying fraudulent results dependent on the manipulated reported final tallies. That is the issue I think Powell and Wood are hinting at.

To be sure, there is a great deal of evidence of regular old-timey ballot stuffing and standard election fraud, but computer and internet generated mischief has the potential to far exceed that and seems to Trump’s lawyers in fact to have done so.

Feldman then describes what has happened with Georgia’s results and discusses the voting machines involved.

She concludes:

At the Department of Defense, General Michael Flynn’s aide Ezra Cohen-Watnick has been made acting undersecretary of intelligence. Previously he was the U.S. strategic policy coordinator for all intelligence programs, “including, among other things, covert action, human intelligence, electronic surveillance.”

Are Trump’s lawyers onto something big or not? We’ll have to see

Sidney Powell went so far as to say:

On November 17, Newsmax reported that Michigan’s Wayne County refused to verify election results, which could send the decision to their state’s legislature. Powell told Newsmax presenter Greg Kelly that this was good news. She had more to say about the voting machines, which allegedly have a ‘back door’ for manipulation — ‘a feature’ not a bug. She says she has it on good authority (a former Venezuelan military officer) that it worked successfully for Venezuela’s Chavez and Maduro. The presenter said it’s no wonder Biden didn’t campaign. She is still in the process of gathering more information and hearing from more people every day who want the fraud revealed and stopped:

Jan Jekielek from The Epoch Times has more on that story:

The next six tweets are particularly important:

Powell told Newsmax’s Greg Kelly (see video above) that Trump received 80m votes in a clear landslide. The voter fraud, she says, is ‘very serious’ and involves ‘trillions of dollars of worldwide wealth’.

Powell is still putting together evidence and testimony, but millions await her ‘release of the Kraken’ with great anticipation.

President Trump praised Sidney Powell, Lin Wood, Joseph diGenova and all the other lawyers working for his campaign:

Remember:

Also:

On Thursday, November 19, Sidney Powell participated in a press conference with former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani and attorney Jenna Ellis, who also helped to defend John MacArthur’s Grace Community Church against lockdown rules in Los Angeles County.

Howie Carr’s audio from November 19 has excerpts of what Powell said. She sounded disgusted and saddened, in equal measure. She said that she will continue to pursue the voter fraud.

When you hear her allegations in that audio, it is difficult to comprehend just how appalling it must be to discover voter fraud on such a massive scale.

I wish Sidney Powell all the very best as she pursues the truth not only for President Trump but also America, the Great Republic.

Stay tuned for more developments in the days to come.

Last week, Jeff Sessions resigned as attorney general.

He left the Department of Justice (DoJ) on Wednesday, November 7, 2018.

Asking Sessions to resign was President Trump’s first action after the mid-terms on November 6.

Finally!

Now, maybe, justice can be done!

The acting attorney general (AG) was formerly Sessions’s chief of staff. His name is Matt Whitaker.

Trump was clever and did not promote Rod Rosenstein, deputy attorney general, to the post. Because Sessions had recused himself, Rosey had been overseeing the Mueller probe. Now that Whitaker has been given the responsibility of overseeing Mueller, the Left — Democrats and the media — have said that the United States is experiencing a ‘constitutional crisis’.

Fox News’s Howard Kurtz explains why (emphases mine):

Whitaker is a former prosecutor, as well as a conservative activist, but he is obscure. He is a Trump loyalist, once described as the president’s “eyes and ears” at DOJ.

What’s more, as a CNN contributor and at other times, he has trashed the Mueller investigation that he will now be overseeing. He’s suggesting that Justice could curtail the special counsel’s probe by cutting his funding.

“The truth is there was no collusion with the Russians and the Trump campaign,” Whitaker once said. As for the left, “the last thing they want right now is for the truth to come out, and for the fact that there’s not a single piece of evidence that demonstrates that the Trump campaign had any illegal or any improper relationships with the Russians. It’s that simple.”

So Whitaker has, to put it mildly, a rather dim view of the investigation. And his associates are telling reporters he has no intention of recusing himself. Of course not — that’s why Trump wants him.

So it’s a big deal that oversight of the Russia probe is moving from Rosenstein, who likes the job Mueller is doing, to a man who’s been so critical of the investigation. And criticism from House Democrats who’ll soon be in a position to scrutinize these matters is fueling the story.

Rumour has it that Robert Mueller might be wrapping up his investigation soon, possibly next week. If true, whether that is related to Sessions’s resignation is unclear.

As acting AG, Whitaker can stay in that position for up to 210 days. Whitaker was appointed to his former chief of staff role in 2017, therefore, he requires no Senate confirmation.

Whitaker quickly protected his Twitter account, which was all about sports, although you can see a photo of him lifting weights. He’s no pencil-necked geek. He’s a big man with a shaved head (similar to Mr Clean). One of Whitaker’s tweets featured a similar photo with the caption:

What I do in my free time. #powerclean #CrossFit…

VA Online News has an interesting article about Whitaker and how he got the AAG job. The article purports that White House aides thought Rod Rosenstein’s resignation was imminent, so they went about finding a replacement:

Convinced that the deputy attorney general, Rod J. Rosenstein, was ready to resign after the revelation that he suggested President Trump was unfit for the job, senior White House aides got to work last weekend installing a replacement.

Whitaker received a phone call on Saturday, November 3:

Matthew G. Whitaker, the chief of staff to Attorney General Jeff Sessions, would become the acting No. 2 official at the Justice Department, his White House counterpart, John F. Kelly, told him over the phone on Saturday morning, according to two people briefed on the call. To the White House, he was an obvious choice: a confident former college football player and United States attorney whom Mr. Kelly has privately described as the West Wing’s “eyes and ears” in a department the president has long considered at war with him.

By Monday, Rosenstein had decided to stay at the DoJ for the time being, therefore, Whitaker could not be moved into his slot.

Interestingly, had Whitaker become DAG, replacing Rosenstein, he would not have been able to supervise the Mueller probe:

thanks to complex department rules, Mr. Whitaker would not assume control of the inquiry if he ever replaces Mr. Rosenstein.

Some think that Whitaker could become the permanent AG if he performs well as AAG. Even if he doesn’t, there are other roles open to him:

Administration officials have also mentioned Mr. Whitaker as a possible successor to Donald F. McGahn II, the White House counsel who plans to leave in the fall.

Justice Department and White House spokespeople declined to comment. The back-and-forth between the White House and Justice Department were described by more than a half-dozen administration officials and others briefed on the discussions who spoke on the condition of anonymity to describe internal conversations.

President Trump is said to have an easy rapport with Whitaker, who disapproves of Mueller potentially probing the Trump family finances.

In 2016, he was critical of Hillary Clinton’s server situation:

A reasonable prosecutor may ask, if on numerous occasions, an unknown State Department employee had taken top secret information from a secured system, emailed that information on a Gmail account, and stored the information on a personal server for years, would that individual be prosecuted? I believe they would.

Eighteen US AGs have demanded that Whitaker recuse himself from overseeing the Mueller probe. On Friday, November 9, Fox News reported:

More than a dozen U.S. state attorneys general signed a document Thursday calling for Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker to recuse himself from overseeing the Russia investigation, a role he assumed following his temporary appointment following the resignation of Jeff Sessions …

As part of Whitaker’s new role as the head official at the Justice Department, he will oversee the Russia probe and the agency’s other federal investigations, including the New York prosecutors’ look into the finances of Trump and his former aides.

In an op-ed Whitaker wrote last year, he argued that “any investigation into President Trump’s finances or the finances of his family would require Mueller to return to Rod Rosenstein for additional authority under Mueller’s appointment as special counsel.”

“It is time for Rosenstein … to order Mueller to limit the scope of his investigation to the four corners of the order appointing him special counsel,” Whitaker wrote. “If he doesn’t, then Mueller’s investigation will eventually start to look like a political fishing expedition. This would not only be out of character for a respected figure like Mueller, but also could be damaging to the President of the United States and his family — and by extension, to the country.”

And separately, in July 2017, Whitaker told CNN, “I could see a scenario where Jeff Sessions is replaced with a recess appointment, and that attorney general doesn’t fire Bob Mueller, but he just reduces his budget to so low that his investigation grinds to almost a halt.”

Whitaker is adamant about refusing to recuse.

The Left — Democrats and the media — are in a right tizz at the moment.

Whitaker’s DoJ could look at all types of left-wing scandals from the past several years.

He could get a lot done in 210 days, especially as he has the little-known but brilliant Ezra Cohen-Watnick, 32, working at the DoJ. Cohen-Watnick formerly worked for HR McMaster, who fired him from the National Security Council. Trump fired McMaster earlier this year.

Trump and his son-in-law Jared Kushner think highly of Cohen-Watnick, who has an intelligence background. In April 2018, Trump personally told the DoJ he wanted Cohen-Watnick to work with Jeff Sessions. That did not sit well with the Left, either, because it was rumoured he had shown Rep. Devin Nunes classified documents relating to Nunes’s FISA investigation of the 2016 election.

With Whitaker and Cohen-Watnick working together, who knows what the near future might hold? We could well see some sunlight disinfecting the Swamp.
