What Occurred To Sidney Powell And Rudy Giuliani? Fox Drops Attorneys Amid Lawsuits – Thebritishjournal

Sidney Powell and Rudy Giuliani, once staples of Fox News, abruptly disappeared from the airways after Fox received legal warnings for their disinformation. Now the pair are embroiled in legal battles and political strife as former allies turn on them.

Powell and Giuliani spent months pushing Donald Trump’s election fraud narrative with cable network Fox News as one of their most frequent outlets. Right up until Dec. 10, Powell was welcomed onto Maria Bartiromo’s shows with the promise of “groundbreaking new evidence” of a “cyber Pearl Harbor.” 

It was around that time, however, that Fox started receiving legal notices. 

The voting companies that Powell and Giuliani’s “Kraken” accused of stealing the presidential election weren’t about to take the allegations sitting down, and they sent a wave of legal threats to those involved.

On Dec. 10 an attorney for Smartmatic sent Fox a letter accusing them of “[publishing] and [republishing] dozens of false and misleading statements regarding Smartmatic,” demanding an apology and retraction of the false information.

Powell never returned to the network, and Giuliani made a final appearance two days later before vanishing. Lou Dobbs aired a 20-minute retraction, debunking the theories his own show had pushed. Fox received a second letter from Dominion Voting Systems, ordering them to preserve documentation ahead of legal action.

Consequences for Powell and Giuliani didn’t stop with the loss of their platform: Powell faces a $1.3 billion lawsuit from Dominion for her “demonstrably false” accusations and has been largely abandoned by her former allies after her typo-ridden “kraken” failed to impact election results.
