Judge Parker

A federal judge on Monday excoriated a group of Republican-aligned lawyers including Sidney Powell and L. Lin Wood over their legal efforts to review the 2020 election results. The Michigan attorney general wants them to face sanctions over their actions on the failed Kraken.

US District Judge Linda Parker made the comments at a contentious hearing on Zoom whose purpose was to determine whether the lawyers should face sanctions, Business Insider reported.

Parker repeatedly criticized the attorneys as failing to do “minimal” research on the “evidence” they presented as part of their multipronged effort — which Powell called the “Kraken” — to nullify the election results in Michigan, Georgia, Wisconsin, and Arizona.

“The court is concerned that these affidavits were submitted in bad faith,” Parker said.

After the so-called Kraken failed, Michigan and the city of Detroit filed complaints with the bar seeking punishment for Powell, Wood, and the lawyers who had signed on to their lawsuits.

Parker also said the lawyers had filed affidavits without adequately investigating their claims.

“I don’t think I’ve ever really seen an affidavit” like this, Parker said after reading through one whose author speculated at length about whether the US Postal Service had tampered with mail ballots in the 2020 election.

“This is really fantastical,” Parker said. “How can any of you, as officers of the court, present this type of an affidavit?”

The court could refer the lawyers to the bar for disbarment.

Sidney was asked What the Kraken was. She replied it was Her. So, all the reports of the Kraken being some evidence is “fake-news”.

The Kraken actually refers to a fictitious multi-tentacled sea creature. What Powell was referring to were the many independent confirmations of the various illegal acts the Democrats committed to steal the 2020 elections, including those provided to her by those who said they had witnessed them firsthand. In any case, she simply filed them in good faith and has no legal liability for their veracity. Even a liberal judge can’t just shoot the messenger every time she doesn’t like the message!

You know that both the system and that Democrat judge are TOTALLY corrupt when they refuse to even interview the sworn statements of the witnesses, and instead use the Deep State to try to intimidate their legal representation!

I think this bitch Judge should be impeached. She must think Americans don’t see the double standard. There is clear evidence of everything that Lin Wood and Giuliani and Sidney Powell have said, as evidenced by the Arizona Audit and the audits which will follow. IMPEACH THIS bHUSSEIN appointee!!

Pretty sure I’ve read news articles about ballots thrown in the trash by postal workers. How is this a problematic affidavit?

She never said the affidavits were false. She just didn’t like what was in them. Somebody needs to be disbarred and it’s not Sydney.
