The Trump lawyer who advocated for an election fraud conspiracy should be held accountable for her domestic actions.
At the beginning of this month, a local judge flatly refused to reinstate a case against Sidney Powell, a former ally of Donald Trump and “Kraken” lawyer. This was yet another unfortunate defeat for the State Bar of Texas in court.
The Dallas lawyer, who once proudly used the name of the multi-armed sea monster to describe her nationwide legal attacks alleging widespread voter fraud in the 2020 presidential election, should continue to fight for sanctions.
Naturally, the monster’s mythology served as the foundation for her lawsuits.
This is why, since last year, the Texas bar has been seeking Powell’s possible disbarment, claiming that Powell abused her law license and acted unethically by filing frivolous lawsuits against Michigan, Georgia, Arizona, and Wisconsin.
Powell fought that a trick between Domain Casting a ballot Frameworks and unfamiliar tyrants brought about countless false votes cast for President Joe Biden in those states. None of the cases was effective.
Sadly, neither has been the state bar’s case up to this point. The sanctions case was initially dismissed by State District Judge Andrea Bouressa of Collin County in February, and on May 4, she refused to reconsider her decision.
Even more disappointing is the fact that Bouressa has relied on the bar’s clerical and procedural errors rather than the merits of the case to make her decisions. She criticized the bar’s attorneys in one ruling for not properly ordering their exhibits attached to a filing.
Regardless, we hope that the bar submits an appeal to the Dallas-based 5th District Court of Appeals challenging Bouressa’s most recent order and that it is remanded to the trial court for a thorough investigation of the facts. That much is due to the case.
The U.S. House Jan. 6 committee’s investigation found that Trump led a “multi-part” conspiracy to overturn the election, fueled in part by Powell. Powell played a significant role in that investigation.
Additionally, Powell was at the center of Dominion’s most recent defamation lawsuit against Fox News because the network repeatedly broadcast her claims despite questioning them. Last month, Fox agreed to pay $787.5 million to settle the case.
Powell faces professional misconduct sanctions from a number of states, including Texas. The Michigan Lawyer Complaint Commission on May 1 recorded a grievance against her with the state’s legal counselor discipline board regarding the political race extortion case there.
However, Powell is a local attorney who maintains a location on Turtle Creek Boulevard. Texas residents have a right to see firsthand the evidence against her in open court, close to home.
