“It reads more like a memo to the “all we have to do is get the case to SCOTUS and unleash our secret evidence” crowd.”
But even a shitty lawyer inexperienced with election law like Sydney Powell knows that you don’t provide new evidence to a case appealed to SCOTUS. They work strictly off the lower court record. Since she didn’t want to go to the lower court, where her fictitious, inadmissible nonsense evidence would be subjected to court scrutiny, it was a complete waste of time for her.
The Appeals Court in GA flat out said that this is the wrong way to do this, and their evidence is too sketchy and disputed to bother with.
Behold the Kraken:
Not a complete waste of time. Trump owes her money now.
Although trying to get trunp to pay someone what he owes would be a complete waste of time
Nothing cute about the Trump Kraken. Once they discover a pathetic octopus we might have an animal to compare it to.
He doesn’t care. This blitz of lawsuits is not about winning, it’s about collecting more money from the idiot donors, which goes mostly into his pockets.
It’s also serving as a distraction for his other democracy destroying acts, like replacing the Pentagon leaders with more sycophants, pulling out of Somalia, and pardoning his co-conspirators.
True. The Trump Kraken is just a scam to raise money off of right wing rubes and waste the time of various state Courts. Its the reason hacks like Sydney Powell and Rudy Guiliani are running them.
Everyone who knew what they were doing fled once the judges started getting annoyed. Lawyers didn’t want to piss off the judges they see on a regular basis for this frivolous garbage.
Trump always said he would be the only person to make money running for president. But apparently that is nothing to how much he can make by losing.
It’s also baffling branding. Most people think of a Kraken as something bad, not something heroic—and in most stories it is eventually defeated.
I assume they were going for the menacing specter of the “RELEASE THE KRAKEN!” scene from Clash of the Titans when they coined the phrase but they seem to have forgotten that the monster was vanquished with a withering stare.
Do you think that “And there’s more.” line is a slightly misquoted “My Cousin Vinny” reference?
It goes with their pattern of picking huge menacing villains who are defeated by plucky liberal types.
Its like we were invaded by Tod Spengo’s planet and didn’t realize it.
This country’s biggest con ever.
Most people would… but we’re talking Team Trump here.
Their whole strategy is to make these lawsuits intentionally bad so that they’ll be laughed out of court. That way, they can then turn around and say that the courts are part of the Big Conspiracy, which they are bravely fighting against thanks to donations from Real Patriots like you. Our phone operators are ready and waiting for your credit card information. Don’t let these Deep State, GOP-appointed judges steal the election from the minority of people who voted for Trump, act now!
