Sidney Powell Claims Some Of Her Witnesses Have Been ‘Threatened’ And ‘Beaten Up’
By: Martin Walsh, Conservative Brief, December 2, 2020
Sidney Powell, the prominent defense attorney who is fighting in courtrooms across the country to expose alleged voter fraud, made a few startling claims this week.
During an interview Monday night on Fox News, Powell provided an update to Fox News host Sean Hannity and revealed an unfortunate turn of events as her cases are reviewed.
Powell told Hannity that many witnesses involved in her case are already being threatened and, in one case, reportedly physically assaulted.
Powell didn’t elaborate on the details surrounding the alleged assault or intimidation, other than to say one witness was “beaten up and is in the hospital.”
She added that “lives have been threatened” and claimed other witnesses fear losing their jobs should they choose to come forward with potentially damning information.
“There have been all kinds of repercussions against people who have come forward to tell the truth,” Powell claimed. “And no, Democrats don’t like whistleblowers, they only like liars who claim they’re whistleblowers.”
Powell went on to inform Hannity that some of the witnesses she’s counting on for her cases — including some in governmental roles — can’t come forward “without certain protections in place,” which undoubtedly complicates matters in the ongoing legal fight to prove the voter fraud allegations.
Sidney Powell tells Hannity that her witnesses can't come forward "without certain protections in place" and that they "require confidentiality" because their "lives have been threatened" and one has been "beaten up and is in the hospital."

At another point in the interview, Powell made a slew of other claims.
“And I asked you today, you said to me that there were people watching an internet connection in real-time but they can’t speak publicly and haven’t signed affidavits to that. Why?” Hannity wondered aloud.
“There’s a number of reasons,” Powell insisted. “Some are within the government. Some are possibly in different roles that require confidentiality. And they are not in a position where they can come forward without certain protections in place. And that’s something that the government really needs to give them if they want to get to the truth of all the matters, with which we are gathering more evidence every day.”
Powell asserted that they’ve “only been allowed access to a few of them,” adding that they will be “collecting a lot more evidence” in the near future and that they already have “evidence of corruption all across the country and countless districts.”
Hannity eventually interjected to ask why Democrats weren’t willing to offer a helping hand.
“I thought Democrats told us that we like whistle-blowers. You’re saying these people can’t talk because they’re going to lose their job. I would think they’d get protection,” he said.
“They’re going to lose their job, their lives have been threatened,” Powell replied. “One witness we know of got beaten up and is in the hospital. There have been all kinds of repercussions against people who have come forward to tell the truth. And, no, Democrats don’t like whistle-blowers. They only like liars who claim they’re whistle-blowers!”
Powell didn’t provide evidence that her witnesses were being threatened and withheld from telling Hannity any specific instances.
But many certainly find Powell credible and would certainly believe that witnesses in her various lawsuits could be under threat or otherwise fearful of coming forward with headline-rocking information.
