Look at the court filings. You can do that. Carlson can do that.
Several have been posted here and the transcripts of the actual court findings. Guess what there is no evidence to present and cases are being dismissed, it is why the original large lawfirms represent trump have walked away, they still have reputation to maintain. And just so you know, many if those judges throwing these cases out are Conservative judges.
I do hope you do finally realize that the fact of the matter is Biden beat trump in a fair and square election, the American People voiced their opinion and that is what we should want, win or lose.

Doesn't matter. The Supremes will have the final word.
Sorry to burst your bubble but simply will not happen, well unless trump can find a way to steal the vote by turning Electors against the People of their State and yes then the SC will be involved, especially since many States have their own laws forbidding Electors voting against the majority of their People.
So no, the SC is not going to save trump, unlike him, he never will admit he lost, but you should know better.

Nonsense. I don't think you've actually looked at any of the court filings.

Here is just one piece of evidence from one court filing:

121. In Centre County, a poll worker reported that persons appearing at the
polls and admitting that they were New Jersey voters, rather than Pennsylvania
voters, were nonetheless provided provisional ballots on which to vote.
That is evidence presented in a court filing.

Seriously...telling a lie over and over doesn't make it true.

These hucksters have been laughed out of courts across the country.

The coup is failing.
No, the coup is still very much on. They're just abandoning Plan A is all. Plan B...turn the electors...is happening right now, and if that fails then there's always Plan C: military coup.

Gonna be a long two months.

“How quickly we turn on our own,” said Bo Snerdley, Limbaugh’s producer, in a Twitter post that was indicative of the backlash against Carlson. “Where is the ‘evidence’ the election was fair?”

The backlash against Carlson and Fox for daring to exert even a moment of independence underscores how little willingness exists among Republicans to challenge the president and his false narrative about the election he insists was stolen. Among conservative media voices and outlets, there’s generally not just a lack of willingness — they have proved this month to be Trump’s most reflexive defenders. . . .The same fear that grips elected Republicans — getting on the wrong side of voters who adore Trump but have little affection for the Republican Party — has kept conservative media largely in line. And that has created a right-wing media bubble that has grown increasingly disconnected from the most basic facts about U.S. government in recent weeks, including who will be inaugurated as president Jan. 20. In the hours after Carlson’s monologue, word of which spread quickly across social media, Trump’s supporters went after not only Carlson but also Fox News. The network has become a source of particular frustration with many on the right after taking a more skeptical view of Trump’s claims about voter fraud and refusing to reconsider its call on election night that Biden would win Arizona. . . . . .

Roosh Valizadeh, a writer and podcast host who supports the president, summed up the anger aimed at Fox by many on the right, saying, “As long as Tucker Carlson works for Fox News, he can’t be fully trusted.”

Ain't NO WAY IN HELL Tucker should be allowed to jump off a train he helped build in the first place, a train he shoveled coal on for five years, a train he laid the tracks for, a train he sold tickets for.
I'm strapping his dumb ass to the front of the locomotive and jamming the throttle to MAX and sending him straight into the ravine a la Back to the Future.

Why are you asking me? Do you think I'm a lawyer?
It doesn't take a lawyer to know that when someone's lawyers tell a judge they have no proof of and are not even alleging fraud, that there is no proof of fraud.

Look at the court filings. You can do that. Carlson can do that.
The court filings that keep getting dismissed? Those?



It must suck to have to keep posting this idiotic crap.

Tucker is one of the biggest proponents of conspiracy BS on Fox so this is significant. However, Trump supporters are so bought into this election conspiracy theory carp he will lose ratings . Trump supporters need to hear "their" truth. Time to switch to Newsmax and OAN !
I really hope the monster that ****er created totally screws over his career.

I don't know if she is usually a nervous talker, but the whole time she spoke I kept wondering if in the back of her mind she's thinking, "This shit better work out or my career is done for."
You're giving her too much credit. She's a wackado. She's in QAnon territory. Only the best on Trump's legal team.

There you go again. Courts still do not decide who our leaders are. The voters do and "The Supremes" wouldn't touch this with a 1000 foot pole either.

Is that the case the judge just tossed out? Or is trump suing her for other stuff too?

A federal judge in Pennsylvania on Saturday dismissed a lawsuit by the Trump campaign that sought to block the certification of Pennsylvania's election results. The Trump campaign said Saturday they plan to appeal.

1. Carlson needs to get over his inflated sense of self-importance and his resulting butt-hurt for being dismissed. 2. He can do like everyone else can do...his job. Examine the lawsuits. Examine the evidence contained in the suits. Investigate the allegations. He doesn't need Powell to come on his show and spoon feed stuff that is already available to everyone.3. He should also remember...‘You Are Not Unbiased Jurors’.
Wow tRumpists eating their own... :oops:

Tucker is doing his job- hosting an opinion forum that routinely brings talking heads in to lay out their 'investigations'. Examine what lawsuits??? The dozen or so lawsuits that don't survive a day in court? The ones where no facts are presented by the tRump team???

Powell is the one claiming 'testimony' and 'proof'. Why reinvent the wheel when the one claiming to have to have the best tire is available to 'sell' those tires to the choir???

Perhaps Tucker did investigate the empty allegations and decided they are a stinking pile of nothing burgers. Perhaps he wants Powell to show her 'proof' that so far dozens of legal teams have failed to produce once legal penalties are attached to lying under oath.

Perhaps tRumpists are just desperate for people to attack, to blame for any loss of faith in the cult of the fat orange guy... ✌

I think you should probably keep away from your Emotional Support Boa Constrictor for a few weeks.

Apparently, even Tucker Carlson has a breaking point with Trump's lunatic defense team. To summarize, Tucker's people contacted Sidney Powell to provide evidence of vote switching and to possibly come on the show. When continuously pressed for evidence Powell got angry and told them to stop contacting her. The smell of bullshit is strong with this woman.


Side note: Hey Trucker, where's your proof of rampant authoritarianism in American government since you rant daily on your show about the rampant authoritarianism present in American government? Or mebe, are you just ranting that it's real important that there be no authoritarianism in American government (like Powell thinks it's real important that there are free and fair elections in the US)? Hum?:rolleyes:

2nd Side note (to everyone): Why is demanding an investigation into the freeness and fairness of the 2020 election w/o facts not allowable since, for over 2 years, there was an investigation into the freeness and fairness of the 2016 election w/o any facts being presented?

Attorney Sidney Powell is a conspiracist running amok.

This is how she earns her handsome retainer checks from the Trump campaign.
The silver lining in this cloud is she'll be retiring after this sh** is over. No one in their sane mind would ever hire her. Ditto with Rudy Hair Dye.

There are no lawsuits alleging Powell's claims.

Tucker is totally wrong as a journalist and commentator for demanding that minor claims like “every single American election for the past 16 years is illegitimate as millions of votes are altered by algorithms” have at least some circumstantial evidence.

Well, let's see, Trump literally begged Russia, in front of the media, to commit a crime against his opponents. If Biden begged Dominion in front of the cameras to rig the election then I'd fully expect an investigation in that, too.

He reminds me of the Branch Davidians who helped prop David Koresh... and then they began to question things after Koresh starting sleeping with their wives.

So the Elites actually wanted Trump as president in 2016? How interesting.
