Attorney Sidney Powell, who on behalf of former President Donald Trump filed third-party election lawsuits, has launched a Super PAC dedicated to a variety of goals, including freedom of speech, constitutional rights, and “the sacred right to free and fair elections.”
In Saturday’s statement, Sidney Powell announced the launch of the Restore the Republic Super PAC, an independent expenditure-only political action committee capable of receiving unlimited contributions and of engaging in unlimited political expenditure on initiatives, provided that it does not directly coordinate with campaigns or candidates.
A Jan. 22 filing with the Federal Elections Commission shows Powell as the entity’s Custodian of Records, while former Trump campaign attorney Jesse Binnall serves as the Super PAC’s Treasurer.
Powell said the driving force behind the move is that Americans are “starved for truth, restoration of the Rule of Law, and even-handed accountability,” being fed up with government corruption and a “elitist political class that views them with condescension and contempt.”
“The American people deserve a voice that exposes and rejects the self-interest of political parties, the control of tech giants, and the lies of the fake news,” she said.
Vowing to be a “voice for honesty, integrity, and a return to government by We the People,” Sidney Powell said the Restore the Republic Super PAC “will be dedicated to supporting candidates who will fight vigorously for our Constitutional rights, freedom of speech, and the sacred right of free and fair elections.”
“The PAC will promote candidates who fight for truth and the Rule of Law, and we will strenuously oppose any candidate who discards the Constitution for his own short term or political gain—regardless of her party,” she said.
Sidney Powell, who successfully defended retired Army Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, was introduced by the Trump legal team in November.
She is known to have filed a number of contest-of-election lawsuits in the aftermath of the November election, which claimed fraud and other irregularities.
