It’s time to “release the Kraken” from the American Bar Association, according to the city of Detroit.
According to a court filing first shared by New York Times reporter Alan Feuer on Tuesday, Detroit’s lawyers recommend Sidney Powell, Lin Wood, and the rest of Team Kraken for disbarment after the legal syndicate filed four lawsuits against the city that were eventually rejected.
Detroit argues that this litigiousness is tantamount to malpractice, saying the attorneys need “to answer for that misconduct.”
“We have been horrified by the inappropriate actions of these attorneys and the plaintiffs themselves, and we have intended to seek any sanction the court can order,” Detroit’s counsel David Fink told Law&Crime in a phone interview.
The legal petition comes as the Trump campaign is engaging in one final last-ditch effort in its bid to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential contest.
After months of lawsuits in several swing states, Congress will vote on Wednesday on whether to certify the Electoral College’s vote in favor of President-elect Joe Biden. Several members of both the House of Representatives and the Senate have indicated their intent to object to the certification vote.
President Trump has even tweeted a suggestion that Vice President Mike Pence take drastic action. While Pence’s office has not yet commented on the president’s proposal, Trump has continued to attempt to persuade him.
He made an additional appeal to the vice president during a rally in support of Sens. David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler in Georgia on Tuesday evening.
“I hope that our great vice president comes through for us. He’s a great guy. Of course, if he doesn’t come through, I won’t like him as much,” Trump said. “Mike is a great guy. He’s a wonderful man and a smart man and a man that I like a lot.”
Powell did not immediately respond to the Washington Examiner’s request for comment.
