Sidney Powell claimed witnesses involved in her 2020 election legal ventures are being threatened and in one case was hurt.
The attorney, who claims to have evidence of a massive voter fraud scheme involving machines that shifted the contest in President-elect Joe Biden’s favor, talked to Fox News host Sean Hannity on Monday about some of the difficulties she is facing.
She said some people, including those who have government roles, are unable to come forward “without certain protections in place.” Powell called on the government (she didn’t say which government) to offer such protections.
Powell added that potential witnesses are in danger of losing their jobs and their “lives have been threatened.” Powell also said that one witness has been “beaten up and is in the hospital.”
Powell did not name any specifics throughout the interview, nor did she provide any evidence to support her claims about witness intimidation.
State officials and voting machine companies have repeatedly denied Powell’s claims of there being a vote-switching conspiracy in places such as Georgia.
Trump’s legal team distanced itself from Powell this month after a press conference in which she claimed that voting machines switched ballots cast for President Trump to votes for Biden.
Powell also served as an attorney for retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, Trump’s first national security adviser who received a presidential pardon last week in his case involving a guilty plea to lying to the FBI about his contacts with a Russian envoy.
