President Donald Trump has a number of high-profile lawyers on his payroll who are currently waging election-related legal battles in numerous swing states, but perhaps none as high-profile as Sidney Powell, who claims to have bombshell evidence that will literally overturn the results of the election.
According to Breitbart, Thursday on Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” host Tucker Carlson called out Powell and her claims of massive evidence of voting software-related fraud, informing viewers that he invited the lawyer on his show to make her case and provide proof, but said she eventually backed out in a less-than-polite manner.
“But she never sent us any evidence despite a lot of requests, polite requests, not a page. When we kept pressing, she got angry and told us to stop contacting her,” Carlson said, which elicited a fiery and negative response toward Carlson on social media by thousands of Trump supporters.
Backing up a bit, many times in Carlson’s questioning of Powell’s claims included Carlson providing compliments for the distinguished, Texas-based lawyer, saying that if she does, in fact, have such evidence, it would result in exposing one of the largest crimes in American history.
“Now, to be perfectly clear, we did not dismiss any of it. We don’t dismiss anything anymore, particularly when it’s related to technology. We’ve talked to too many Silicon Valley whistleblowers and we’ve seen too much after four years on the air,” Carlson said, according to Fox News.
The Fox News host went on to say that he would have afforded Powell an entire night — or an entire week — to provide even a sneak peek of evidence that would lend credibility to her claims that corrupted voting software stole an election from an American president.
Unfortunately, that didn’t happen and as Breitbart reported in an updated story, Powell later made an appearance on Fox Business Network and told host Maria Bartiromo her side of the story, calling Carlson “insulting, demanding and rude.”
Carlson didn’t address her response directly in his Friday evening show, but did say that Powell’s claim on FBN that proof of the mass fraud would be coming within two weeks was “great news.”
Only time will tell if Powell has the level of proof it would take to overturn a presidential election, but until then, as frustrating as it might be, it’s probably wise to let her work her magic and construct the most convincing case possible for the courts.
