For four years, conservatives and Republicans were forced to repeat the same thing when it came to any and almost every allegation made against President Donald Trump: “Can you imagine the outrage had this (Russia collusion, impeachment based on an anonymous whistleblower, FISA warrants improperly obtained, etc.) happened to a Democrat…?”
Accomplished former federal attorney Sidney Powell made remarks during a Trump 2020 Campaign press conference that most media channels refused to air. Now, had Joe Biden “lost” the election and were alleging massive voter fraud, we all know broadcast and social media would be citing the very incidents they currently find “no evidence” of ever happening. Had an accomplished former federal attorney representing the Biden campaign, he or she would’ve received wall-to-wall coverage and excerpts would be on near auto-play everywhere you look.
Of course to be consistent, the media is dismissing the remarks of the press conference participants.
To be clear: Rudy, Jenna Ellis, and the rest have nothing. Zero. They’re not serious. They’ve got plenty of hot, nonsensical rhetoric but not nearly enough on the facts and they’re just straight making up the law. This isn’t what real lawyer, decent lawyers, do.

Unfortunately, as Rudy begins to sweat, his hair coloring is streaking down the sides of his face.

Mike Flynn’s attorney Sidney Powell is now making allegations about voting systems and Hugo Chavez, who died in 2013, during this press conference.

Rudy Giuliani, Jenna Ellis, a Trump campaign legal adviser & Sidney Powell, a lawyer on Trump’s election legal team, have been talking for more than an hour making unproven claims of mass voter fraud and insisting they will be “reclaiming” the election that they claim Trump won.

The president has been obsessed with the Dominion machines, asking one person after another about the conspiracy theory that Sidney Powell has floated about them, according to multiple Trump advisers.
— Maggie Haberman, NY Times White House correspondent
“In the middle of the night, after they’ve supposedly stop counting, and that’s when the Dominion operators went in and injected votes” — the conspiracy theories about “globalists dictators” being pushed by Sidney Powell would make Alex Jones blush. They are absolutely insane.
— Aaron Rupar, Vox
So much of what he said was simply not true or has already been thrown out in court, and Giuliani, he opened by making this really bold and baseless claim that a lot of this alleged nationwide voter fraud that he is referring to all came from one centralized place. He called it a nationwide conspiracy. And yet he failed to provide any hard evidence to back up that one specific claim especially when you’re dealing with a claim that really cuts to the core of our democratic process.

Dana Perino is now urging Dominion to sue Sidney Powell and Rudy Giuliani in the latest edition of “Watch our Ratings Burn”

Had any of the Trump team’s allegations happened to Joe Biden, the media would do more than reflexively and smugly shoot them down. They’d actually take the time, look into them, and put their assertions in bold caps.
