This has been a wild week for President Trump’s legal team, who are already feverishly working to prove in court that the former NYC business mogul is due for another 4-year term as the US President.
The smattering of legal arguments were woven into a fairly earthshaking collection of accusations by Trump lawyers Rudy Giuliani, Jenna Ellis, and Sidney Powell during an at-times raucous press conference on Thursday. When pressed at the presser about presenting evidence, the trio insisted that this was only their metaphorical “opening argument”, and that they would have to wait until the courts weigh in to release much more.
Tucker Carlson of Fox News wasn’t satisfied by this answer, and blasted Powell in particular for refusing to turn evidence over to his staff for review.
Powell unloaded on Carlson after the disses, which came during the monologue of his Thursday night broadcast.
“Apparently Mr. Carlson missed the news conference today,” Powell said in a statement late on Thursday, according to Washington Examiner breaking news reporter Anthony Leonardi.
“I would continue to encourage him and all journalists to review all the materials we have provided so far and conduct their own investigations.
“Evidence continues to pour in, but a 5 minute television hit is not my focus now. Collecting evidence and preparing the case are my top priorities,” Powell said.
Powell has made quite the name for herself in MAGA circles, after fiercely defending former national security adviser Michael Flynn over the course of the last several years’ worth of his “RussiaGate” case.
