Former Trump lawyer Sidney Powell was scheduled to testify this past Thursday morning in front of the grand jury in Georgia, but simply didn’t show up. Powell had been subpoenaed, so her defiance – whether intentional or not – is definitely something that she could face criminal charges over. And maybe that’s her plan considering the evidence against her, as Farron Cousins explains.

This past Thursday morning, former Trump attorney Sidney Powell was scheduled to be in Fulton county, Georgia to testify in front of the grand jury. According to the subpoena that she had been served, it was really pretty clear. I mean, the date was there. The location was there, all the information that she needed was there. But for some reason that we still don’t know, um, Sidney Powell didn’t show up direct defiance of a legal subpoena that according to reports, there may have been some confusion about the subpoena. Now, unfortunately, as it stands right now, we don’t have any more clarification than that. That sources, I guess, close to Ms. Powell said, oh, whoa, whoa, we’re so totally confused about this piece of paper. That is legally binding document that says we have to be at a certain place at a certain time. We, we totally didn’t know what that meant.
Okay. Sidney Powell went to law school. Sidney Powell has passed the bar, uh, based on what I can tell, she’s actually passed the bar in multiple different states. This woman knows how to read a subpoena. Okay. She’s been dealing with them throughout her entire career. She knows how to read legal filings. She knows how to read court filings. She knows how grand juries work. She knows that she’s a target of the investigation. And somehow we are supposed to believe that she was confused by what the subpoena said. So she, she just didn’t show up, even if that were the case, which I don’t think for a second, that it were, that it was weird. Um, even if she was confused about it, do you know what you do in that instance? You pick up the phone and you call cuz I’m sure there’s phone numbers on there, right?
Or at least somebody, you know, to contact you, call them and say, hi, this is Sidney Powell. I’m confused. Where do you want me? Okay. When do you want me there? Great, glad we cleared that up click. That’s what you do if you’re confused. So there’s literally no excuse for her to not show up the grand jury. As far as we can tell, you know, Fulton county, da Fannie Willis, they were expecting her to be there. So we know they didn’t get any information saying, Hey, I’m so confused. I, I guess I’m lost in the back woods of Georgia, somewhere, nowhere near Fulton county. Oh man, I’m an idiot. I’m not showing up today. That didn’t happen. If you defy a subpoena, you can be held in criminal contempt and that’s what needs to happen to Sidney Powell. I don’t care what her excuse is. I don’t care if it’s, oh, my car ran outta gas. Hell uh, Rudy Giuliani said, I’m too sick to get on a
Plane. And the judge said, we’ll buy you a frigging bus ticket, get your down here. So nothing that Sidney Powell is going to be able to offer is probably going to be an acceptable excuse to anybody associated with this grand jury. The real question is going to be whether Fannie Willis wants to go ahead and go the route of also having to deal with criminal contempt charges because that’s a whole headache in and of itself, right? She’s got a very important, very serious investigation going on. Do you wanna take time away from that to put somebody that’s on your team on the issue of now we gotta file criminal charges against her for defying the subpoena. I don’t know. Maybe she does. Maybe she says, oh boy, this is the opportunity I’ve been waiting for to go ahead and put Sydney Powell behind bars for at least, you know, a couple hours till she makes bail.
So it remains to be seen. But if you or I had to fight a subpoena, we wouldn’t be talking about it. Two days later, we would’ve already been in jail. Like they would’ve immediately come and arrested us. So I don’t know why that didn’t happen to Sidney Powell, but hopefully Fannie Willis does go and do that. And uh, by the way, what the grand jury is wanting to ask Sidney Powell about is whether or not she was the main financier. You know, the funder of the little scheme with Kathy, Laham letting all those contractors in who allegedly were sent by Sidney Powell, um, to that, uh, um, coffee county elections office to copy all the material from the voting systems. If Sidney Powell
