Sidney Powell Seeks Controversial Dismissal of Dominion Lawsuit

Her reasoning is a bit strange…

Those who legally aligned themselves with Donald Trump in the late weeks of 2020 are having a rough go of it in the early stages of the new year, as they face a number of massive lawsuits stemming from their actions.

Trump and these litigious surrogates believed that the 2020 election was stolen from the incumbent Republican President, possibly via some electronic trickery being perpetrated by Dominion Voting Systems.  Those who were of this impression demonstrated quite ferociously a number of alleged pieces of evidence that they believed proved their point.

Dominion believes that this “evidence” was actually just defamation, and have targeted a number of Trump’s vocal supporters with billion-dollar-plus lawsuits on account of it.

Sidney Powell has now asked a judge to toss the suit against her, but her reasoning isn’t exactly what we’d expect.

Sidney Powell, a lawyer who advised President Donald Trump’s campaign, asked a judge on Monday to throw out a $1.3 billion lawsuit accusing her of spreading false conspiracy theories about the November presidential election.

Powell said in a filing in federal court in Washington that there was a “no basis” for the lawsuit brought by Dominion Voting Systems Inc in January.

Powell, represented by three lawyers, argued that claims she made about Denver-based Dominion were protected by the right to free speech under the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.

She said her claims about Dominion were meant to be hyperbolic, and that “reasonable people would not accept such statements as fact but view them only as claims that await testing by the courts through the adversary process.”

Powell had been quite close to the Trump legal team at the beginning of the election fraud campaign, but the President’s lawyers would later look to distance themselves from her as their own investigations wore on.
