Former Trump Lawyer Powell Defends Himself Against $2.5 Billion Lawsuit

Sidney Powell, a former Trump attorney, is defending her remarks about Smartmatic when attempting to reverse the outcome of the 2020 presidential election and is asking the courts to dismiss the $2.5 billion defamation suit brought against her by the election technology firm.

“Smartmatic’s desperate effort to implicate me in a civil scheme to injure the company is not only baseless, but it also precludes me from being sued in New York,” Powell said in a statement on Thursday. “Smartmatic makes no claim that I was involved in any kind of plot. And, for the record, I was not one of them.”

“In the absence of a real villain, defendants created one.” According to NBC News, “Defendants wanted to make Smartmatic the villain of their story,” Smartmatic says in at least one of the suits.

Powell claimed in a recent motion to dismiss the case that she couldn’t be prosecuted in New York, where Smartmatic brought the lawsuit, because he didn’t have enough contacts with the state.

She also argued that the state would not have authority over her because of her appearances on Fox News.

Powell also claims that her remarks are not defamatory because the details she revealed about the Smartmatic voting machines is “supported by sworn affidavits, expert studies, and other corroborating evidence.”

She also claims that her comments about Smartmatic are protected by the First Amendment because they are “political expression made in connection with ongoing litigation.”

Powell said, “I stand by my comments about Smartmatic today.”

“Every allegation I’ve made about Smartmatic and the machines’ insecurity is correct in my opinion. This case is without merit and should be dismissed entirely.”
