There was a lot of speculation on Sunday when the Trump campaign released a statement clarifying that Sydney Powell is not a part of the formal Trump legal team.
Of course, the media ran with this as evidence that Sydney Powell was “fired” for making false and outlandish accusations and that the rest of the claims made by Trump’s team are equally false.
However, that’s not the case at all and a simple look at the legal strategy being used makes it obvious.
As it stands, there are two main pathways for Trump to be victorious. The most immediate one is via the Supreme Court involving Pennsylvania.
There are two complaints regarding Pennsylvania the Supreme Court will end up deciding on. The first one is under the equal protection clause.
Because Republican poll observers were treated differently than Democrat poll watchers, this falls under the equal protection act. According to noted legal expert Alan Dershowitz, this is most likely a winning case as Trump’s team has ample evidence to show how poll observers were forced out of voting centers. There is written as well as video evidence of this taking place.
The second complaint has to do with the legislature changing the rules as to how votes are counted after election day. As Alan Dershowitz once again points out, this is another winning case for Trump.
In an interview with Fox Business on Sunday, Dershowitz said the following:
“For example, in Pennsylvania, they have two very strong legal arguments. One, that the courts changed what the legislature did about counting ballots after the end of Election Day. That’s a winning issue in the Supreme Court. I don’t necessarily support it, but it’s a winning issue in the Supreme Court,”
He then went on:
“a winning issue in the Supreme Court on equal protection, that some counties flawed ballots to be cured while others didn’t. Bush v. Gore suggests that an Equal Protection argument can prevail.”
So with all this being said, let’s not forget there is a very tight time frame here. December 14th is the date that these issues need to be settled by.
The two Pennsylvania cases above are the quickest and easiest to get in front of the Supreme Court. Trump’s team already has the evidence and the there is precedent on their side in regards to Bush vs Gore in 2000. So these cases should be as close to a slam dunk as Trump’s team will get.
This leads us to the second pathway involving Sydney Powell. Powell is going after Dominion software and the fact that votes mysteriously appeared or were counted incorrectly. Whether this was by design or by a software glitch, this the case that Powell is heading up.
The Dominion case is much more complicated. It requires experts to comb through an enormous amount of data as well as unraveling how Dominion software actually functions and who programmed it. This will not be done by the December 14th deadline, so there is no reason to put Trump’s team solely on this case at the moment.
So in essence, that’s what’s going on and that’s why Trump’s campaign has split their legal cases into two specific paths. One is path via the Supreme Court which is their quickest avenue for legal relief. Second, is the Dominion issue, but that will take longer and will not be finished by December 14th, so the Trump team needs a win before that date in order to keep the investigations going.
