The Sidney Powell 'kraken' is nothing more than crackpot, tinfoil hat nonsense.

Her affidavits are full of already debunked conspiracies, allegations that have already been dismissed by courts across the country, and absolutely no substance.

Here's one sentence from her Michigan affidavit:

denialofRepublicanchallengers’ righttoparticipateandobservetheprocessingofballotsviolatesMichigan’sElectionCode


She managed to misspell 'district' three different times in three different ways - Distrct, Districct, and Distrcoict.

Her footnotes sourcing her claims link to Tweets, YouTube videos, and a DuckDuckGo search result (See https://duckduckgo.com/?q=colorado+signature+rejection+rate&t=osx&ia=web last visited November 25,2020).

Both filings are hilariously bad.

1. Oh, it's a little more than that.

She actually filed this garbage in federal court. I think the only way Rule 11 sanctions aren’t in her future is if the judges become convinced she’s nuts, and really does have a good faith belief this nonsense is real.

6. I'm guessing they (the Cobb County GOP) will ratify this

filing, but that is a major ethical violation. You don’t file on behalf of a party who is not your client. She should have a written agreement with each of the plaintiffs setting out the scope of the representation, and how she is to be compensated ( it’s probably pro bono).

She may escape sanctions for this massive fuck up, but her malpractice carrier is likely to take notice.

3. ten years ago

a client gave me a bottle of "Kraken" rum. It was a dark rum with a giant squid on the label. Maybe she's been sampling the goods

5. Meanwhile, people with legitimate grievances cannot get their day in court

Yet, her filings are so filled with errors she should be disbarred. But, she gets court access.
