The Kraken Lawsuit, As The French Would Say, Le Fails
The much hyped and epically flawed “Release the Kraken” lawsuit from Sidney Powell has been laughed out of court:
A federal judge in Georgia has dismissed the so-called “Kraken” lawsuit filed by lawyer Sidney Powell over election results, according to Politico. It was called the “kraken” lawsuit after Powell said she would be releasing the “kraken” in a suit in Georgia.
The lawsuit was dismissed for lack of standing and the federal judge overseeing the case saying, “They want this court to substitute its judgment for two and a half million voters who voted for Joe Biden. And this, I am unwilling to do.”
Powell, who filed the suit on behalf of some voters, is best known for at one time representing the Trump Campaign. The campaign then distanced itself from her after a rambling press conference from the campaign that saw Powell talking about international conspiracies even involving dead Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez.
Or, to use a pop culture reference:
