Michigan AG Says Sidney Powell’s Claim that ‘No Reasonable Person’ Would Believe Her Kraken Theories Is Exactly Why She Should Be Sanctioned

ADAM KLASFELD Apr 7th, 2021, 11:31 am

Defending herself from more than $1 billion in liabilities from Dominion Voting Machines, lawyer Sidney Powell argued late last month that that “no reasonable person” would believe that her conspiracy theories were factual. Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel (D) cited that concession to argue that the pro-Trump lawyer’s meritless litigation is sanctionable.

“These attorneys seemingly made statements they knew were misleading in an effort to further their false and destructive narrative,” Nessel wrote in a statement on Wednesday. “As lawyers, fidelity to the law is paramount. These individuals worked to further conspiracy theories in an effort to erode public trust in government and dismantle our systems of democracy. Their actions are inexcusable.”

On Tuesday, the attorney general filed a supplemental briefing on behalf of Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D), Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson (D), drawing a federal judge’s attention to Powell’s latest defense against the more than $1 billion in liabilities that she faces from Dominion Voting System’s defamation lawsuit.

Powell’s so-called Kraken lawsuits advanced outlandish theories drawing together deceased Venezuelan autocrat Hugo Chavez, multiple foreign powers, local governments across the United States, and Dominion in a supposed plot to hand President Joe Biden the election. Sued by Dominion, Powell later floated the defense that a reasonable person would not have taken her claims to be statements of fact.

2. It's about time for consequences to start

rolling down "...like a mighty stream." The Kraken et al are thinking they can get away with it. It is vital not to let this happen.

6. For Christ's sake, they still can't use the word "lie"?

"Misleading"? "false narrative"?

I can't believe we are still finessing the actions of these traitors and criminals.

We have common folk in prison for lying to cops and courts. For rich Republicans, the powers won't even use the word.

12. Sidney Powell believes she can lie with impunity

... just like her Fuehrer can.

I'd say that's a pretty good definition of defamation and slander. Good on Dominion!

15. She's a lawyer. How can she even use this defense?

Or does she see a loophole in the law to exploit that we don't see?

How can she expect to win? If she does, it means that anyone can lie about anything, no matter the consequences. People spending their savings donating to "stop the steal"? People radicalized to travel to Washington to mount an insurrection? How about a good old mass shooting?

As long as afterwards they say....."Just kidding, how could you ever think I was serious?"

Time for consequences.

18. No reasonable person attacked the capital.

They knew who they were appealing to. The deplorables.
