It’s about time the President listens to Sidney. Rudy Guiliani’s head is probably exploding about now.
President Trump and attorney Sidney Powell met for a Friday night huddle in the Oval Office, according to the New York Times – which claims they discussed the idea of Powell becoming a special counsel to investigate voter fraud “according to two people briefed on the discussion” (and how were they privy?).
The report goes on to claim that Rudy Giuliani, Trump’s personal lawyer who publicly distanced their legal team from Powell’s efforts to prove widespread election fraud through rigged Dominion Voting Systems machines, opposed the idea – despite rumors that the former NY Mayor sought to have the Department of Homeland Security to seize voting machines to analyze them.
Mr. Giuliani joined the discussion by phone, while Ms. Powell was at the White House for a meeting that became raucous at times, according to one of the people briefed on what took place. Other administration officials drifted in and out of the meeting, two of the people briefed said, and the White House counsel, Pat A. Cipollone, pushed back on the ideas being proposed.

The notion of Powell becoming a special counsel reportedly “sent shock waves through the president’s circle,” as Trump has been in contact with her in recent days despite the campaign’s public distancing. According to the Times, her claims that Dominion machines were used to rig the election are ‘baseless’ – despite claims to the contrary.
The Times also notes that President Trump has pushed outgoing Attorney General William Barr to appoint a special counsel to investigate election fraud, as well as a separate one to investigate Biden family corruption centered around Joe Biden’s son, Hunter – whose laptop contained evidence that Joe was involved in Hunter’s Ukrainian and China dealings. These claims were backed up by two former Biden family business associates in both sworn affidavits and electronic evidence.
Does any of this matter if the Supreme Court won’t even look at the evidence?
