    There's a case for Sidney Powell's circumstantial evidence

    There has been much speculation since Sunday as to why the Trump legal team would throw attorney Sidney Powell under the bus. The suggestion has been made, not only by left-leaning media outlets, but also those formerly seen as trusted news sources, that Powell's contention that the election was stolen largely through the manipulations of Dominion voting machines employed in battleground states are the ravings of a crazed conspiracy theorist.
    ...
    Ms. Powell's summary of the facts, as presented at last Thursday's press conference and as expounded upon during the past few days, is the kind and quality of substantial evidence, which, if presented to a jury, would easily result in a unanimous verdict by all twelve jurors, beyond a reasonable doubt, that the re-election of Donald J. Trump was stolen through the use of the Dominion voting software systems installed in states throughout our country.
    ...
    In my work as a prosecutor, many of my cases were won solely on "circumstantial evidence." A seminal rule of criminal law and one of which every juror in a criminal case is instructed informs the jury that "[ b]oth direct and circumstantial evidence are acceptable types of evidence. ...

    The jury is further informed that if you are presented with two interpretations of circumstantial evidence, one of which is reasonable and the other is unreasonable, "you must accept only reasonable conclusions and reject any that are unreasonable."

    Rally attendance isn't a metric for election results. None of my friends or relatives attended any Biden rallies, but we sure as heck voted for him.

    What a load of absolute nonsense.

    Putting all of your eggs in the "circumstantial evidence" (dubious, at best, circumstantial evidence) basket a) seems like insanity and b) is wholly unsurprising coming from right wing media.

    We'll know soon enough.

    Sidney Powell stated this weekend that her case isn't under time pressure. Her stated intention is to clean up election fraud involving the voting machines, whether or not it reverses the 2020 election result.

    I hope she is successful in her mission. The problems with Dominion machines and Smartmatic software have been well documented. The problems are not "circumstantial". In fact, many high-profile Democrats are on record denouncing Dominion machines. Some states have documented the flaws with Dominion machines and refuse to use them.

    Some in the Trump orbit have indicated that Sidney Powell is pursuing a "criminal case". Again, I hope Sidney Powell is successful running this to ground, getting the guilty convicted and the system cleaned up.

    The Epoch Times provided a nice summary of what is known about Sidney Powell's efforts as of this afternoon:
    Sidney Powell Filing Georgia Lawsuit on Wednesday, Says Attorney Lin Wood

    Powell said in a news conference that “American patriots are fed up with the corruption from the local level to the highest level of our government,” asserting that voting technology companies were involved in a multi-national conspiracy fueled by “communist money” to overturn the election.​

    Oh joy, another speculative “here’s what the jury would do” argument. And I thought this would be an actual logical argument I’d read.

    I'm not sure what this is a more searing indictment of, the intelligence of the American public or the US legal system in general.

    Robert Kirk is also clearly psychic and should claim the JREF $1 million prize.

    There's a case for her "evidence" -- it's round, it's metal, and it's on the side of the house.
