Donald Trump’s Kraken attorney Sidney Powell worked on the president’s legal team until she became too off-the-wall even for him. Now, she works independently and is currently mounting a “Kraken” case that “when released would destroy the case for Democrat Joe Biden having won the US presidency.” Hashtag #ReleaseTheKraken was designed for people supporting the legal campaign to challenge the presidential election results.

So what is a Kraken? Scandinavian folklore tells about a gigantic sea monster rising up from the ocean to practically inhale its enemies. Powell had said that ‘The lawsuit was much anticipated on the right — “it and her other court filings would release the kraken, (sic),” according to The Washington Post:

‘[The Kraken is a] reference to a mythical sea monster that quickly went viral. Online, supporters had a ready explanation for the typos and other errors: They were intentional and meant to draw media attention to the complaint.’

The federal judge had three problems with the lawsuit:

  1. The lawsuit contains a lot of supposition but no real evidence. Witnesses say they believe this is what happened.
  2. If you have a problem with state law, do not go to federal court. Take your lawsuit to the state courts.
  3. You waited just too long to file this lawsuit.

Powell often appeared amid QAnon, a deep-red right conspiracy network, and she was also Michael Flynn’s attorney. He was Trump’s original National Security Adviser and has been very popular among QAnon people.

Within the last 48 hours, almost 100,000 tweets referred to Kraken, according to the BBC.com:

‘[The] Public data from CrowdTangle, a Facebook-owned analytics tool, [indicated that] there have been just over a million interactions involving the word Kraken since Wednesday evening.’

Democratic attorney Marc E. Elias relayed that a federal judge “DISMISSES Kraken conspiracy case:”

‘BREAKING: Georgia federal judge DISMISSES Kraken conspiracy case from the bench. Rulings from the bench in federal court are rare. A strong message the judge thought it was clearly meritless. Trump and his allies are now 1-48 in post-election litigation.’

Computer scientist and adviser on national voting machines guidelines Dan Wallach said:

‘With the newer machines that generate paper ballots – including the ones used in Georgia – any sort of computerised ballot stuffing would necessarily involve misprinting those paper ballots, which would be certain to be discovered while the election was ongoing.’

BBC News reported:

‘AG Barr delayed releasing a report on Democrat corruption before the election, [so he did not] influence the upcoming election”…[But he sees] no evidence of fraud.’

AlecProgressive tweeted:

’21 days of “the Kraken will be released any day now” and all we get is another boring lawsuit that’ll be thrown out. #Kraken #TrumpMeltdown’

‘If your witness needs to remain hidden due to legitimate concerns for safety, there are ways that can happen. But those ways do not include hiding their identity from the court and the other side’s lawyers.’

Kevin Colvin tweeted:

‘Saw this at work, had to get a pic of it. #ReleaseTheKraken’

She argued that President-elect Joe Biden won due to “communist money.” When Powell released nearly 200 pages of documents, they primarily contained dark “conspiracy theories” and “unfounded allegations,” which had been debunked.

One example was the former Venezuelan head of state Hugo Chavez messing with the voting machines, but there was no credible evidence to move the case forward. Plus, Chavez has been dead for several years.

QAnon supporters follow Powell:

‘[They] believe President Trump is secretly battling a deep state cabal of Satan-worshipping paedophiles in the Democratic Party, media, business, and Hollywood.]’

Powell claimed without evidence the Dominion voting machine software for Michigan and Georgia was used by foreign actors to change the machines’ results in the US elections and “computerized ballot-stuffing.” Powell said:

‘[The machines’ software does not allow] a simple audit to reveal its misallocation, redistribution, or deletion of votes [– so the evidence is now] rendered virtually invisible.’

However, Dominion equipment has a paper back-up ballot to verify the results. Both confirmed Biden as the winner.

Twitter world went crazy when they saw Kraken. Take a look at some of our favorites below:
