The 'Kraken' Chronicles: Powell Provides Proof, Twitter Censors Immediately - Then Does This

Written By BlabberBuzz | Saturday, 28 November 2020 07:40

The link to Sidney Powell's election lawsuit was banned by Twitter before the site later reversed its decision, saying it was 'mistakenly flagged,' as its typo-laden contents was ridiculed by legal experts.

Powell, who was kicked out of Donald Trump's legal team after sprouting wild conspiracy theories at an RNC press conference, released what she termed 'the Kraken' - two lawsuits alleging 'massive voter fraud' in the presidential election.

The Texas-based attorney published the 104-page document detailing allegations about Georgia and a 75-page document looking at Michigan on Wednesday night, calling for the election results to be decertified, Trump to be declared the winner and voting machines to be impounded.

In the documents, released Thanksgiving morning, she alleged the election had been 'rigged' in favor of Joe Biden, and that foreign powers were involved.

She tweeted: 'The #Kraken was just released on #Georgia', along with the link to her website. She added: 'Exhibits to follow. Also #ReleaseTheKraken in #Michigan.'

That link was flagged by Twitter before the ban on the link was reversed a short while after.

A spokesperson for Twitter told Fox Business that 'the URL referenced was mistakenly marked under our unsafe links policy — this action has now been reversed'.

According to Twitter, such actions are taken against links if they are deemed to be malicious, spam that misleads people or violates Twitter’s rules.

Powell has pushed some of the most extreme conspiracy theories around Biden's win. But, despite allegations from her and other Trump defenders, no evidence has emerged of widespread voter fraud. The Trump legal team - which has distanced itself from Powell and her two suits - has filed over 30 suits of its own in battleground states trying to overturn the election. The majority of them have been thrown out of court.

In her filings, the lawyer spelled out claims she had previously made at a tumultuous press conference the week before - namely that Georgia and Michigan used election machinery with the express wish of rigging the vote.

She alleged that China and Iran used these voting systems to influence the US election, and that 96,000 votes cast for Biden in Georgia were illegally counted.

The lawyer also claims that officials in one Georgia county forced everyone to evacuate because of a water leak, only for counters to stay unsupervised to tamper with the votes.

However, Powell's filings were riddled with typos, with both misspelling the name of the courts they were being filed in.

In the Georgia filing, the court was named as 'United States District Court, Northern District of Georgia', while the Michigan court was named as the 'Eastern District of Michigan'.

Shortly after the filing, several legal experts and political reporters took to social media to ridicule the lawyer.

'You don’t have to read 104 page “kraken” submissions by Powell, here is a good summary Conspiracy theories & spelling mistakes litter them,' British solicitor Nazir Afzal tweeted.
