BizarreMan: She put her grift ahead of trumps grift.


Among rich people, the one unforgivable sin is to steal rich people's money (see also: Theranos, Pharma Bro, etc.)

Among grifters, the unforgivable sin is to horn in on somebody else's grift (see also: Steve Bannon)

She said Brian Kemp was corrupt, that he'd taken money from Venezuela or some shiat. There are lots of Kemp voters in GA that the GOP needs to vote for Perdue & Loeffler. That's what I think crossed the line.

Yup. She attacked the GOP machine and threw a wrench in their plans to keep the Senate.

Ironically, the removal of her seems to be confirming the swampitude of the GOP and Kemp, further pushing Trump cultists away.

She said the quiet part out loud and accused Kemp of rigging elections (one of which may have gotten him into the governor's seat)
 
2020-11-23 2:20:36 PM  
She's got a uterus.

Trump prefers lawyers who don't bleed from their whatevers.

She took K2, and added an extra K, which was just too obvious.

Kraken sounds like a furriner name and Trump don't want no furriners being let loose in this country.
 
2020-11-23 2:22:57 PM  
Between the landscaping press conference and whatever the hell was leaking out of his head last week, Trump probably keeps him around for entertaining purposes...or the very least, having someone below him on the tote pole who will essentially do anything the boss man asks of him.

The opposite, actually. Since Powell is a huge QMoron, her removal has caused some to think Trump has fallen in the swamp and is now as corrupt as the RINOs and communists.
 
2020-11-23 2:25:03 PM  
She included Republicans as part of her conspiracy.

The end.

Ah, yes, Trump, the only man in the universe both capable of playing 4D chess to own the libz, and simultaneously vulnerable to the machinations of fourth string of attorneys that only take cash up front.
 
2020-11-23 2:26:47 PM  
This woman is insane! The Twitter and Parler right wingers are all talking about how she's this legendary lawyer, she's world renowned for her lawyering and all that. They are absolutely convinced that she's representing the American People or "we the people" and it'll end up in some military tribunal where thousands of Democrats will be frog marched into court and summarily executed by volunteers from Vanilla ISIS.

I have found absolutely no evidence to suggest that she's a good lawyer, to say nothing of a legendary legal mind. But, given her stance on making wild claims without evidence, that probablly means she's the best lawyer in history.

GardenWeasel: libel


This was my guess. Some of her bullshiat was too specific and will likely be the subject of a defamation lawsuit or two, so pushing her out is an attempt to shield themselves from that (unless Barr comes through and claims this was part of Trump's official duties as president or some such, but time's running short to get that done).
 
2020-11-23 2:30:37 PM  
That linked twitter breakdown of her actions in the Flynn case is hilarious.
 
2020-11-23 2:31:32 PM  
She committed libel with malice when accusing Kemp of throwing the election.  Most of the First Amendment shields people who make claims about public officials from being prosecuted, but when it's done with malice and forethought, that becomes injurious and subject to legal action.

She should be disbarred for that, and also sued into poverty.

Trump didn't bet on losing states that have Republicans at the helm.  This whole line of argument only works among the non-Trump cult Republicans if it follows on the last 4 years of Trump accusations that certain states are trying to undermine him because they're run by Democrats.  Now that his mouthpieces like Powell are accusing Republican leadership of cheating, the Republicans are going to start pushing back, because that's how you lose in the individual states.  That's how you lose two seats in a runoff in a state that just went for Biden.

The best part is the person who releases the kraken always loses.
 
2020-11-23 2:36:22 PM  
This line was saying that the GA Governor Kemp was in on the conspiracy and saying Doug Collins won the runoff.

She said Hugo Chavez was behind the "fraud", the same Hugo Chavez who has been dead since 2013.

You know when a good time for presenting strong evidence is? Before you get thrown out of court for having no evidence.

It's very, very simple: she showed Rudy up by 1) sounding even more over-the-top than him, and 2) Showed that she could remain calm and cool and not sweat up a storm and bleed hair dye.

This one is good, too.

In federal court, Sidney Powell demanded the judge recuse himself, because (in her words) "a random sample of tweets of citizens" prove the judge is biased.

emptywheel - Sidney Powell has become no more than a channel for the fevered rantings of her twitter followers

Trump needs a patsy. Rudy will be the one to reap all the blame. Renfield personified.
 
2020-11-23 2:59:30 PM  
Well, it can't be "crazy" or "stupid," because Rudy 9/11 locked both of those down long ago.

My guess is the line she crossed was "libel" or "slander."
 
2020-11-23 3:01:41 PM

During her press conference last week she said "President Biden" around 2:05

Trump doesn't care what's being said about anyone but him. And he doesn't care about Republicans and their needs in Georgia. The Republican party exists to serve him, not the other way around.

Sydney Powell was soliciting donations on her own website. As far as Trump is concerned, that's his money, it belongs under his control, and she's stealing from him. That's why she's gone.

Just my opinion, obviously, but I think it's ridiculous to say Trump got rid of her because she hurt the chances of Republicans in a runoff election. He's spent his entire life, especially the last four years, demonstrating that he cares only about himself. You think he's going to make campaign appearances for them? Hah. He's more likely to tell Republicans in Georgia to not vote to get back at the Republican Governor and SoS who betrayed him by letting the votes be counted and the results certified.
