"Nichols, who was appointed by former President Donald Trump, ruled there was no abuse of process because that would require showing “a perversion of the judicial process,” which Powell didn’t prove."


These are not good days for those around the ex-president.

Man, she just can't catch a break, eh?
There's somebody on Twitter that has come up with another new lie for her and a ton of people are just retweeting it with no comments. It's almost like it's the same person/bot.

So when are all these Trumpists going to stop filing frivolous lawsuits to try to cover their traitorous actions?

If there is a more spectacular way to throw away a law career, there is a horserace between Sidney Powell and Rudy Giuliani to take that prize.

D’Amato was mobbed up, as I recall. He was certainly no stranger to the Archie Bunker style race baiting that would become trump’s hallmark.

So much winning. I can't take it. I'm sick of all this winning.

She didn't show up for trial after being served a subpoena and I'm trying to figure out where she is and why they haven't arrested her yet. I can't find anything.
Well, it has been 160 Days since Catherine Engeelbrecht, Gregg Phillips and other TTV agents were served 4 subpoenas by the Georgia State Elections Investigative Division and they still haven't complied so it would seem that the State of Georgia is willing to molycoddle THE BIG LIE boys and girls for Trump.
