Former Trump lawyer Sidney Powell sent an email to Fox News host Maria Bartiromo citing a woman claiming to be a headless time traveling entity as a source for her voter fraud claims before appearing on her program.
According to court filings, Powell sent an email to Bartiromo and then Fox host Lou Dobbs on November 7, 2020 from a “source” with the subject “Election Fraud Info.”
The source claims Dominion was the “one common thread” in the “voting irregularities in a number of states,” and described herself as “internally decapitated” and capable of “time travel in a semi-conscious state.”
As to how she came by this information, the source explained: “Who am I? And how do I know all of this?…I’ve had the strangest dreams since I was a little girl….I was internally decapitated, and yet, I live….The Wind tells me I’m a ghost, but I don’t believe it.”
Bartiromo responded to Powell that she had shared this “very imp[ortant] info with Eric Trump.”
Powell appeared on Bartiromo’s show, Sunday Morning Futures, the next day, November 8, and repeated claims from the headless time traveler. Powell told Bartiromo that Dominion’s software had an “algorithm” used as part of a “massive and coordinated effort to steal this election,” the lawsuit states.
Later than night Tucker Carlson, the host of Fox News and cable news highest rated primetime show, texted his producer Alex Pfeiffer, “[t]he software shit is absurd.…Half our viewers have seen the Maria clip.”
Bartiromo did not tell viewers where Powell got her information, though she later admitted in a deposition with Dominion lawyers that the email from Powell was “nonsense”.
The email was released on Thursday in a court filing from Dominion Voting Systems as part of the company’s $1.6 billion defamation lawsuit against Fox News.
