Trump lawyer Sidney Powell said Thursday the 2020 election has brought the nation to a historic crossroads not seen since the buildup to the Revolutionary War.

The hard-nosed attorney working with President Trump’s legal team made the comments during a press conference on allegations of widespread voter fraud across the nation.

Ms. Powell focused on Dominion Voting Systems voting machines used by multiple states, its origins in Venezuela, and Smartmatic technology capable of altering outcomes in various ways.

“We have no idea how many Democratic officials paid to have the election rigged in their favor,” Ms. Powell said. “This is a massive, well-coordinated effort. It is the 1775 of our generation and beyond.”

The president’s team insists that he won the 2020 election in a “landslide” that can be mathematically proven beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.

Rudolph W. Giuliani, the president’s personal attorney, chastised the media for downplaying or ignoring Dominion’s ties to Venezuela’s socialist regimes and left-wing activist billionaire George Soros.

“What do we have to do to get you to the truth?” he asked.

“It really happens in two ways,” Ms. Powell said of voter fraud involving the machines. “There’s an algorithm that runs that automatically flips all the votes, and then each operator has the ability to go in [and] override settings. They can ignore [a] signature. They can ignore the top line of the ballot. They can go down-ballot and select who they want to change the results for. … This is stunning, heartbreaking, infuriating, and the most unpatriotic acts I can even imagine for people in this country to have participated in — in any way, shape or form.”
