Sidney Powell has just sent a shock wave through America.
Powell, whom Sara Gonzales calls the “most outspoken one” regarding election fraud, pleaded guilty to six criminal counts in a deal with the Fulton County prosecutors that gave her a reduced sentence and no jail time.
Just a couple of years ago, Powell is recorded telling a Fox News host that “there needs to be a massive criminal investigation, and it’s going to affect millions of voters in elections, and it’s been organized and conducted with the help of Silicon Valley people, the big tech companies, the social media companies, and even the media companies.”
“And,” Powell continued, “I’m going to release the kraken.”
“Well, that never happened,” Gonzales says.
“You have to wonder what she gave in exchange for that reduced sentence.”
BlazeTV contributor Jaco Booyens is “surprised” but notes that she’s also been sued by Dominion “for something insane like $3 billion, which they know she can’t pay.”
Booyens believes this is “a victory for the other side,” because “now what does Jenna Ellis do in this situation? What does Rudy do?”
Pat Gray is also surprised.
“I thought she was going to produce something, you know, the smoking gun, and then she had nothing,” Gray says, adding, “I’m surprised that you were so emphatic and then it was a lie.”
Meanwhile, Douglass Mackey has been sentenced to seven months in prison after being found guilty of election interference because he made a meme about Hillary Clinton.
The meme featured the slogan “Vote for Hillary” and directions to “avoid the line, vote from home” by texting the word “Hillary” to 59925.
“I mean they’re literally throwing people in prison for memes,” Gonzales says.
