The Riddle Report 11 23 2020
Did Trump Campaign cut ties with Sidney Powell?
NO! That’s what the media wants you to believe. The statement by Giuliani was issued to clarify things.
What the statement did was clarify that she was not a part of the Trump Campaign Legal Team. The former prosecutor is still there and still in take-no prisoners mode as she continues to pursue illicit voter fraud. What they did was simply state the existing relationship as her being independent of the Legal Team.
I can thing of at least two reasons.
The first reason is to clear up any misunderstandings people may have. Some apparently thought she was part of the Legal Team rather than a lawyer acting in conjunction with but not part of the team.
Secondly, there is the matter of fundraising. I got the impression that she has her own fundraising site, and they are simply making sure the lines are clear.
A third reason may be that she wants to remain independent. Her focus is on voter fraud while the Legal Team could be broader. This is just a guess on my part, but it makes sense.
Do They Still Stand with Her?
I will let you decide.
Other than the clarification, there has been no disavowal of any of her charges or statements. In fact, the Federal Election Commission chairman seams to be echoing them. The fact that he and others are supporting the challenges is a testament to the seriousness of the charges and the confidence they have in the evidence. My personal opinion is that yes, they still stand with her.
What happens Next?
So far, everything seems to be going as expected. I’m not a lawyer, but it seems logical to think that there needs to be a legal trail to the Supreme Court where I think this will all end up. So, it was necessary to go through the lower courts (state courts) which are generally liberal. The Trump Team knew that these courts would take a liberal stand and their expectations were verified.
It looks to me like these cases will soon be in the lower Federal courts and begin working their way upward to the Supreme Court where the majority take a serious view of the U.S. Constitution and will likely take the case. Because of the seriousness and limited time, the Court would also need to prioritize the case.
Meanwhile there are still other opportunities for President Trump to win.
According to Alan Dershowitz, a Harvard Law professor emeritus, there are at least three avenues that the President can get re-elected by. These are:
- In Pennsylvania, the courts changed what the state legislature, which the U.S. constitution has given ultimate authority regarding Presidential elections, can do about counting ballots. He thinks this is a winning issue before the Supreme Court.
- The second path or argument is called the ‘equal protection’ of voters. In this case, some Pennsylvania counties allowed flawed ballots to be cured where others did not.
- The third path has already been mentioned and that is the computers and/or software, either fraudulently or by glitches, literally changed thousands of votes.
Without legal expertise I can only guess, but in my opinion, it is possible that the path is not limited to just one. It appears to me that all three paths could be used.
There is still a way to go, but that covers the existing paths as far as I know. Meanwhile the news media continue to confuse the public by calling Joe Biden the President-Elect. The truth is there is no President-Elect until the government makes that determination. It is never the news media; their declaration is just informative and not official.
This means that President Trump is under no obligation to concede to Biden nor is Biden in any way a legal representative of the government. This also means Joe Biden is not eligible to receive transition money. If he is ever officially called the winner, then he can receive the money.
In compiling this report I have used outside sources and not just my opinion.
