According to Politico columnist Rich Lowry, there’s a new conspiracy theory making the rounds in some right-wing circles: That Trump lawyers Lin Wood and Sidney Powell are secretly working for the Democratic National Committee in order to hand Joe biden the Senate.
Of course, “there is no evidence that Lin Wood and Sidney Powell are secretly working for the DNC, but no one has definitively disproved it, either,” Lowry noted before adding that “that’s the kind of the conspiratorial reasoning that the Wood-Powell duo, with their deep commitment to wild and unfalsifiable charges, might apply to themselves.”
The undisputable truth, however, is that the two Trump-allied lawyers “have made themselves into wrecking balls against the Republican Party of Georgia, whose top elected officials, they allege, are involved in the most dastardly and far-reaching conspiracy in American history. Now they are encouraging Georgia Republicans to boycot the January runoff elections.”
“This might be only a bizarre footnote to the 2020 election, if their charges weren’t being amplified by the president of the United States and didn’t come at a time when the GOP needs all of its voters to turn out in the two January runoff elections in Georgia that will determine control of the Senate.
Perhaps Republican voters will ignore all of this come January. But there’s a reason parties seek unity before important elections. At best, Wood-Powell are distracting from the GOP message in the races, and at worst, they are convincing persuadable Georgians that it is the Republican Party that needs to be checked, not Joe Biden.
Certainly, the Wood-Powell logic supports sitting this one out. There is no reason to bother voting if Georgia no longer has a democratic system and instead is controlled by politicians on the take who use technology to predetermine the outcome of elections.
Who needs actual agents of the DNC if this is what the most fervent allies of Donald Trump are saying?”
