Sidney Powell And Rudy Giuliani Ambushed In Surprise Attack

Smartmatic is pursuing its defamation lawsuit against Sidney Powell — just in a different court than it initially planned.

Powell was named in a defamation suit filed by the election technology company in February 2021. According to the lawsuit, Powell, fellow 2020 election conspirator Rudy Giuliani, Fox News, and several Fox News hosts were sued in New York state court. Powell brought several failed lawsuits alleging that Smartmatic and rival company Dominion manipulated the results of the 2020 election to benefit now-President Joe Biden and against then-President Donald Trump.

On March 8, Judge David B. Cohen of New York State Supreme Court tossed out parts of the case. He dismissed the accusations against Powell, chiefly on jurisdictional grounds, holding that her claims about Smartmatic’s rigging of the election were insufficiently linked to New York. (Cohen still sustained some of Smartmatic’s claims against Giuliani and Fox News; Fox News indicated its intentions to appeal.)

Nonetheless, Smartmatic filed a second lawsuit against Powell in federal court in Washington, DC in November. The company stated that it was filing in case a New York court dismissed its case for lack of jurisdiction.

Smartmatic’s spokesperson told Insider earlier this month that the company was considering appealing the New York decision or proceeding with the case in federal court in Washington, DC. They have now made their decision. Smartmatic’s lawyers filed a document on Tuesday to request Powell respond in DC.

“Plaintiffs do not intend to pursue an appeal of Powell’s dismissal from the New York Action for lack of personal jurisdiction,” they stated. “The parties respectfully recommend that this Court set a schedule for Ms. Powell to answer or otherwise plead to the complaint in this matter.”

The filing states that Powell is expected to respond by May 6.

The competing election technology company, Dominion Voting Systems, has also sued Powell in federal court in Washington, DC. Similarly, Smartmatic is suing Powell for claims about the 2020 election.

A little over two weeks ago, a Texas judge was asked to discipline Powell for ‘filing frivolous lawsuits supporting his false claims of electoral fraud’. Clearly, the left is abusing their positions to target anyone who supported former President Trump.

The disciplinary action is a significant step in what has become a nationwide campaign to punish pro-Trump lawyers who attempted to overturn the November 2020 presidential election result. However, it does not represent the end of the investigation.

The matter will be heard by a Texas state court judge who will determine whether sanctions should be imposed and if so, what those sanctions might be.

In its decision published on March 8th, the Texas State Bar Commission for Lawyer Discipline said Powell “had no reasonable basis” for suing to overturn Biden’s victories in key battleground states.

“Beginning in or about November of 2020[,] respondent filed multiple federal lawsuits in different jurisdictions (including the District Court of Arizona, the Northern District of Georgia, the Eastern District of Michigan, and the Eastern District of Wisconsin) alleging, inter alia, election fraud has occurred in the national presidential election in 2020,” the lawsuit began.
“Respondent (Powell) had no reasonable basis to believe the lawsuits she filed were not frivolous,” the complaint alleged. The suit cited a federal ethical rule requiring attorneys to exercise due diligence before asserting claims.

According to the Detroit Free Press, “Powell is licensed to practice law in Texas. She led the so-called “Kraken” legal team that filed a lawsuit in Michigan asking a court to order state officials award the state’s Electoral College votes to former President Donald Trump despite his loss to Joe Biden by more than 154,000 votes. The State Bar of Texas zeroed in on this lawsuit in arguing that she violated the state’s rules governing lawyers’ professional conduct, including those prohibiting lawyers from knowingly making false statements of fact or using false evidence.”

In a statement, Powell said that she looked forward to presenting evidence that would clear her name.

“The Texas bar decision was totally expected, but it is an unfortunate and poor decision by the Bar,” Powell commented. “No lawyer could practice law under the rule they would set for me.”

In an attempt to overturn the election result, Powell represented Trump’s campaign. After Powell claimed at a Nov. 19 news conference that electronic voting systems had swapped millions of votes to Biden, his campaign distanced itself from Powell.

Powell filed an election lawsuit in Michigan in August, and a federal judge there dismissed it as frivolous.

“This lawsuit represents a historic and profound abuse of the judicial process,” U.S. District Judge Linda Parker wrote in her decision. She went on to explain that the lawsuit “was never about fraud – it was about undermining the people’s faith in our democracy and debasing the judicial process to do so.”

In response to that decision, Powell and lawyers with whom she worked have appealed, saying the actions were ethical.

The Free Press quoted Powell as saying she wasn’t surprised by the decision to pursue sanctions by the Texas agency. ‘I look forward to presenting our evidence in court. It will likely be the first time any judge in the country has heard testimony from one of our witnesses. It will be eye-opening to the public,’ Powell predicted.
