Sydney Powell Claims that Trump Can Simply Be ‘Reinstated’ as President if They Found Errors in Vote

One of the very few things we knew coming out of the 2016 election, the one in which Trump had to thread a needle through three states by 70,000 votes to win, and the one in which we heard that there had been Russian interference throughout, was that it didn’t matter if the FBI proved without a doubt that the Russians tweaked the election and put Donald Trump in office, there was no constitutional way to move Hillary into office.

The election was over. Trump would be in office until 2020 unless he was impeached. Period.

The MAGAs aren’t bothered by the Constitution and that has been clear for quite some time. Sydney Powell, the woman who lost a prominent partnership in a good Milwaukee firm believes that there is a way to put Trump back into office. An easy way, right Newsweek?

Attorney Sidney Powell, who filed baseless 2020 election challenges on behalf of former President Donald Trump, insisted on Saturday that the Republican politician “can simply be reinstated”—continuing to promote conspiracy theories and misinformation about President Joe Biden‘s victory.

Powell made the remarks during the “For God & Country Patriot Roundup” conference in Dallas this weekend. Also speaking at the event was retired general Michael Flynn, the former Trump national security who has also repeatedly pushed false claims about the 2020 election.

Flynn gives the event an air of credibility because he attained such a high rank within the military and was briefly in the Trump administration.

“He can simply be reinstated,” Powell said of Trump during the conference. The crowd cheered loudly in response to her groundless claims.

Do You Think Kyle Rittenhouse Will Be Found Guilty or Innocent?

By who? Serious question. By who? The Chief Justice? He is not going to hear a case at this point. The Electoral College is going to go back, against the Constitution for a “do over” based on private counts done by organizations favorable to Trump?

Does the crowd really believe this? Or is it more just what they want to hear?

Peace, y’all
