Powell argues "no reasonable person" would believe her lies

Former Trump lawyer and conspiracy theorist Sidney Powell moved to dismiss a lawsuit filed against her by Dominion Voting Systems Monday, arguing her earlier claims that Dominion was involved in an orchestrated voter fraud effort were so outrageous that “reasonable people would not accept such statements as fact.”


So, this is funny.

I think she is trying to make a nuanced argument here - she was just asking questions…

But that is at odds with how she presented her ‘questions’ on various tv programs and radio shows.

I hope this does all go to court and goes through the discovery process to thoroughly examine whether Dominion played a role in voter fraud. If some say they have “proof”, it should be heard in a courtroom and either exposed as the truth…or a lie?

Any thoughts on Powell’s argument? No reasonable person would conclude her claims are facts…

Would a reasonable person believe that Jbiden got 80 million votes?

No…and now add Trump’s votes to the total and it’s totally unreasonable.

In what way is the total number of votes not reasonable?

No, but a reasonable person who isn’t gakked out on conspiracy fodder would believe and accept Biden got 81.2 million votes.

There are 328 million people in the United States (as of 2019) - including under voting age.

159 million adult people voted?

In 2018, there were 153.07 million people registered to vote in the United States.

What do you know - I actually agree with Powell for once.

I certainly don’t believe her lies.

That was the figure in 2018. What was the number of registered voters in the USA at the time of the 2020 presidential election?

159 / 230.
0.691304347826

2018 50.30% 49.70%
2016 60.20% 59.30%
2014 36.70% 36.00%
2012 58.60% 58.00%
2010 41.80% 41.00%
2008 62.20% 61.60%
2006 41.30% 40.40%
2004 60.70% 60.70%
2002 40.50% 50.10%

So what it seems like is more people vote in Presidential election years than they do mid terms.

That’s a what your chart says.

What do you think it says?

Purged dead people from voter rolls?

It indicates a potential fraudulent election.

I don’t know what the accurate figure is. I saw one figure of upwards of 220 million. What I do know is there was an active programme to recruit those in the 18-29 age demographic to register and to vote.

There was a significant increase in that age demographic of those who voted in the 2018 midterms compared to the 2014 midterms. Given the recruitment drive to register voters in that demographic it is reasonable to extrapolate that the total number of people who voted in 2020 would be high in relative terms compared to 2016. Particularly, when taken into account that the turnout for Trump would be higher in 2020 compared to 2016.

Also, on those figures there was a significant increase between 2014 and 2018 midterms.
