Sidney Powell Claims No Reasonable Person Would Conclude That [Her] Statements Were Truly Statements Of Fact


The filing says that the claims Powell made in interviews on Fox News and Fox Business, and in a press conference at the Republican National Committee are not statements of fact. In particular, her claims “that she had evidence that the election result was the ‘greatest crime of the century if not the life of the world,’” or that Democrats “developed a computer system to alter votes electronically” would not be accepted by a “reasonable person” as “statements of fact.”

Powell and her lawyers go further, citing Dominion’s criticism that Powell’s claims were “wild accusations,” “outlandish claims,” “inherently improbable,” or “impossible” as evidence that “reasonable people would not accept such statements as fact but view them only as claims.”

Finally, Powell and her lawyers admit that her claims about voter fraud, stolen elections, or switched votes were “her opinions and legal theories” only.
