City of Detroit wants Sidney Powell fined, banned from court, and more over ‘Kraken’ lawsuit
The City of Detroit is now going after attorney Sidney Powell with a vengeance. They want Powell and her team to face sanctions for “frivolously undermining ‘People’s faith in the democratic process and their trust in our government.’” This comes about after Powell filed her ‘Kraken’ lawsuit that was dismissed.
A federal judge was asked to fine the involved lawyers, ban them from practicing in the Eastern District in Michigan, and refer them to the Wolverine State’s bar for grievance proceedings.
“It’s time for this nonsense to end,” Detroit’s lawyer David Fink stated.
“The lawyers filing these frivolous cases that undermine democracy must pay a price,” he added in an interview with Law & Crime.
“Plaintiffs and their counsel understood that the mere filing of a suit (no matter how frivolous) could, without any evidence, raise doubts in the minds of millions of Americans about the legitimacy of the 2020 presidential election,” Fink’s 9-page motion states. “As this Court noted, ‘Plaintiffs ask th[e] Court to ignore the orderly statutory scheme established to challenge elections and to ignore the will of millions of voters.’”
Marc Elias, an attorney for Democratic legal firm Perkins Coie, who has regularly intervened in these cases on behalf of the Democratic Party and the Biden campaign, is probably not far behind in all this. According to a legal filing posted by Elias, Powell is facing charges of bringing a lawsuit for “improper purposes,” including harassing the City of Detroit and frivolously undermining “People’s faith in the democratic process and their trust in our government.”
U.S. District Judge Linda Parker dismissed Powell’s litigation: “The People have spoken.” Fink quoted from her ruling.
“The right to vote is among the most sacred rights of our democracy and, in turn, uniquely defines us as Americans,” Parker stated in her 36-page ruling. “The struggle to achieve the right to vote is one that has been both hard-fought and cherished throughout our country’s history. Local, state and federal elections give voice to this right through the ballot. And elections that count each vote celebrate and secure this cherished right.”
Both Sidney Powell and Lin Wood have filed three other similar suits in Wisconsin, Arizona, and Georgia. All have been dismissed.
Powell is adamant in her accusations concerning a plot involving Dominion voting machines, dead Venezuelan strongman Hugo Chavez, bipartisan government officials, and election workers in counties across the United States. She firmly believes that massive election fraud occurred and the voting machines and their software were manipulated to result in a Joe Biden win in the 2020 presidential election.
Powell has touted a list of anonymous and confidential witnesses, including a purported military intelligence expert code-named “Spyder” who later allegedly admitted to the Washington Post that he was actually an auto mechanic named Joshua Merritt with no such work experience.
Detroit and other liberal stronghold cities across the nation have quickly dismissed Powell’s cases. Now, they are looking for revenge.

“This abuse of the legal process at the expense of states should not go unpunished,” Fink said.
If Powell chooses to continue her legal fight in Michigan, she may have to pony up a $100,000 bond. There may also be other penalties at play.
Fink claims that the ongoing legal battles involving Trump’s attorneys remind him of Bill Murray’s “Groundhog Day.” Only he claims it is a deadly serious version that amounted to an effort to bring about what he called a “court-ordered coup d’état.” He has sought to sanction pro-Trump lawyers before for a campaign of “lies” and “frivolous” litigation.
“This is not a legitimate lawsuit; it is a public relations weapon being used to advance the false narrative that our democratic system is broken,” Detroit’s motion declares. “This abuse of our legal system deserves the strongest possible sanctions.”
Brought by the Election Integrity Fund, the case was one of several lawsuits filed across the country by the Thomas More Society and supported by the Amistad Project.
“This is not a minor lawsuit; it is a dangerous attack on the integrity of the democratic process for the election of the President of the United States,” Fink wrote. “The parties and their attorneys should be held to the highest standards of factual and legal due diligence; instead, they have raised false allegations and pursued unsupportable legal theories. Then, after being corrected by the defendants and the Courts, they refuse to dismiss their lawsuit. Apparently, this frivolous lawsuit continues because it serves other, more nefarious, purposes. While the pending complaint cannot possibly result in meaningful relief, it does serve the purpose of conveying to the world the impression that something fraudulent occurred in Detroit’s vote count.”
