Sen. Mike Lee Encouraged Trump to Hire Sidney Powell, Backtracked After Her Insane Press Conference

Even before he lost the 2020 election, Donald Trump had a team of lawyers set to contest the results. After seeing that Trump lost decisively and fearing retribution from clients, those lawyers and firms dropped out.

The former president was left with bottom-of-the-barrel lawyers like Jenna Ellis and Rudy Giuliani. It has now been revealed that Senator Mike Lee had been pushing Trump to hire Sidney Powell. After she proved that she was as unstable as Giuliani, though, the Utah Republican had second thoughts.

Texts from Meadows to Trump Cheif of Staff Mark Meadows obtained by CNN that were sent before her disastrous press conference read:

From Mike Lee to Mark Meadows
Sydney Powell is saying that she needs to get in to see the president, but she’s being kept away from him. Apparently she has a strategy to keep things alive and put several states back in play. Can you help her get in?

From Mike Lee to Mark Meadows
It was at the president’s request that Sydney has been working on a strategy and has been trying to get in to see him. But she’s being kept out.

The messages following the presser were much different:

From Mike Lee to Mark Meadows
I’m worried about the Powell press conference.

From Mike Lee to Mark Meadows
The potential defamation liability for the president is significant here

From Mike Lee to Mark Meadows
For the campaign and for the president personally

From Mike Lee to Mark Meadows
Unless Powell can back up everything she said, which I kind of doubt she can

From Mark Meadows to Mike Lee
I agree. Very concerned

From Mike Lee to Mark Meadows
The temptation will be to do nothing for now.

From Mike Lee to Mark Meadows
I’m not sure doing nothing is a good option

From Mike Lee to Mark Meadows
Unless Powell can immediately substantiate what she said today, the president should probably disassociate himself and refute any claims that can’t be substantiated

From Mike Lee to Mark Meadows
He’s got deep pockets, and the accusations Powell made are very, very serious

From Mike Lee to Mark Meadows
That is an especially bad combination when you consider the damages that could easily be claimed (and indeed proven) and the deep pockets involved.
