Ouch! Trump lawyer Sidney Powell slapped with $1.3 billion defamation suit over voting lies

January 08, 2021

According to a report from the Washington Post, pro-Trump attorney Sidney Powell has been hit with a $1.3 billion lawsuit for lying about Dominion Voting Systems.

Papers were filed early Friday morning by the voting machine firm alleging that the attorney -- who was representing outgoing President Donald Trump at the time -- indulged in "wild" and "demonstrably false" claims that the company participated in stealing the election from the president.

According to the Post, "In a 124-page complaint filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, Dominion said its reputation and resale value have been deeply damaged by a 'viral disinformation campaign' that Powell mounted 'to financially enrich herself, to raise her public profile, and to ingratiate herself to Donald Trump.' The defendants named in the lawsuit include Powell, her law firm and Defending the Republic, the organization she set up to solicit donations to support her election-related litigation."

The post goes on to note that none of Powel's claims were taken seriously by the courts and that the attorney had been dismissed from the president's legal team after making a series of unfounded allegations.

2. That's a kraken of a lawsuit.

She's going to have to wash a whole lot of dishes to pay that off.

4. You want to unleash the Kraken...

...let us show you how it's done!

The nice thing is that Dominion has made it clear that they are NOT interested in any settlement. They want a full trial.

7. Since she's still a lawyer she can defend herself

at least until she's disbarred.

11. Even if disbarred, she could probably still defend herself...

and she might have to anyway. Didn't her firm can her? Or did she "resign" from it the other day?
