Proving exactly how unfair and imbalanced Faux News really is, Tucker Carlson said such nasty things to Trump attorney Sidney Powell that she went off about it, unleashing her own inner Kraken. She was all set to appear on his show, and bring along an expert to help explain the evidence, until the talking head went on a “demanding and rude” ego trip.
Carlson didn’t catch the press conference
Apparently, attorney Sidney Powell told Maria Bartiromo on Friday, Tucker Carlson didn’t catch the Thursday press conference. The one where she joined Rudy Giuliani to explain to America that President Donald Trump actually won the election, before it was stolen away from him by Democrats and the corrupt media.
They pointed out that they had a stack of direct evidence in the form of affidavits and the press was more than welcome to start investigating them at any time. Affidavits from real people are “direct, admissible” evidence in any court. Getting decisions based on that evidence will take some time.
She didn’t get angry with Carlson for asking about election fraud evidence, she told Bartiromo on Friday during a live-on-air call. She didn’t like his attitude. “He was very insulting, demanding and rude, and I told him not to contact me again in those terms.”
In fact, she explains, she had already forwarded a fresh affidavit to his staff and was ready to bring along an expert witness. One who could “explain the mathematics and statistical evidence” much better than she could. Tucker didn’t want to hear that.
After she told him where to take his attitude, Carlson used his show as a soapbox for an unfair and imbalanced diatribe. He misinformed his audience that he invited Powell to “share evidence of elections software flipping votes.” He claims, without evidence, that “Sidney got angry and refused to provide evidence for voting software flipping votes.” Powell wasn’t about to answer his lies directly, so she called Bartiromo to explain her side of the story.

Ready to bring a witness
Bartiromo grabbed the bull by the horns and flat out asked, “How did you respond to Tucker Carlson? Did you get angry with the show because they texted you and asked you to provide evidence of what you’re alleging?” Of course not, Powell argues. “No,” Powell insists, “I didn’t get angry with the request to provide evidence in fact I sent an affidavit to Tucker that I had not even attached to a pleading yet to help him understand the situation.”
On top of that, “I offered him another witness who could explain the mathematics of the statistical evidence far better than I can. I’m not really a numbers person.” The problem was that Carlson was “very insulting, demanding and rude and I told him not to contact me again in those terms.”
Ms. Powell also told the Washington Examiner that “Apparently Mr. Carlson missed the news conference today. I would continue to encourage him and all journalists to review all the materials we have provided so far and conduct their own investigations.” There is a good reason for that. “Evidence continues to pour in, but a five-minute television hit is not my focus right now. Collecting evidence and preparing the case are my top priorities.”
