On Monday night, Fox News host Sean Hannity appeared to gullible acceptance of former Trump attorney Sidney Powell’s apology for why she was unable to publicly reveal the so-called evidence which she said would show widespread electoral fraud.
Earlier this month, Powell was criticized by Fox News star Tucker Carlson for failing to provide any evidence to back up his far-fetched claims of a nefarious international plot to transfer millions of votes from Trump to President-elect Joe Biden. Days after Carlson called her, and after she accused Republican Gov. of Georgia Brian Kemp of being in the alleged scheme, Trump’s legal team ditched Powell.
Yet she continued to advance her wild and baseless conspiracy theory that Dominion Voting Systems worked in conjunction with late Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez, liberal philanthropist George Soros, Chinese Communist money, and the CIA to steal money. elections to Trump using corruption. software to move votes. Even though Powell no longer represents Trump in an official capacity, she recently filed faraway lawsuits in Georgia and Michigan and says she will be filing more soon.
While legal experts note that her lawsuits largely recycle affidavits and testimony from previous cases that have already been withdrawn and dismissed, Powell reassured her supporters in right-wing media – including at Fox – that she would “release always the Kraken ”. Hannity, for his part, appeared optimistic on Monday.
“And I asked you today, you told me that there were people watching real time internet connection, but they can’t speak publicly and didn’t sign affidavits about it.” . Why? ”Hannity wondered aloud.
“There are a number of reasons,” insisted Powell. “Some are in government. Some may have different roles that require confidentiality. And they are not able to come forward without certain protections in place. And this is something the government really needs to give them if they are to find out the truth about all the issues, which we are collecting more evidence with every day.
Pro-Trump star Fox, meanwhile, reaffirmed with Powell that these witnesses could not come forward or sign affidavits without protection, then asked the former federal prosecutor if anyone had forensic examination one of the voting machines in question.
Powell claimed they had “only been allowed access to a few of them,” adding that they “will be collecting a lot more evidence” in the near future and that they already have “evidence. of corruption throughout the country and in countless districts. . “
She also once again alleged that the voting machines used an algorithm to assign votes to Biden and destroy Trump’s votes, all without providing any evidence to back up her explosive claims.
Hannity eventually stepped in, not to express his skepticism about his unproven claims, but to question why Democrats weren’t ready to lend a helping hand.
“I thought the Democrats were telling us we love whistleblowers. You say these people cannot speak because they are going to lose their jobs. I think they would get protection, ”he said.
“They’re going to lose their jobs, their lives have been threatened,” Powell replied. “A witness we know was beaten and is in hospital. There have been all kinds of repercussions against people who have come forward to tell the truth. And no, Democrats don’t like whistleblowers. They only like liars who claim to be whistleblowers!
Hannity noted that Democrats only like “hearsay whistleblowers,” before proposing to question Powell’s witnesses when “these people can speak”, adding that “we should be able to hear them.”
