Attorney Sidney Powell says claims that she could not provide evidence of voter fraud to Fox News’ Tucker Carlson are untrue.

The key member of President Trump’s legal team told Fox Business’ Maria Bartiromo early Friday that she offered access to a witness and an affidavit to the “Tucker Carlson Tonight” host related to her team’s legal fight.

Ms. Powell’s claims come less than 24 hours after a segment of Mr. Carlson’s show set conservative social media circles on fire.

“We have no intention of fighting with her,” Mr. Carlson said Thursday evening. “We’ve always respected her work. We simply wanted to see the details. … We invited Sidney Powell on this show. We would’ve given her the whole hour; we would’ve given her the entire week actually and listened quietly the whole time at rapt attention — that’s a big story. But she never sent us any evidence despite a lot of requests, polite requests, not a page. When we kept pressing, she got angry and told us to stop contacting her.”

The attorney, who claims Dominion Voting Systems machines were used to manipulate the presidential election on a massive scale in favor of Democrat Joseph R. Biden, disagreed. 

“I didn’t get angry with the request to provide evidence,” Ms. Powell said during a “Mornings with Maria” interview. “In fact, I sent an affidavit to Tucker that I had not even attached to a pleading yet to help him understand the situation, and I offered him another witness who could explain the mathematics and statistical evidence far better than I can. I’m not really a numbers person. But he was very insulting, demanding, and rude and I told him not to contact me again in those terms.” 

Ms. Bartiromo took the opportunity to press her guest on claims of voter fraud.

“What’s the most stunning, most egregious [evidence],” the host asked. “Give me one thing. What’s the most egregious and most stunning, Sidney, as we wrap up here?”

“One of the most impressive pieces of evidence is the affidavit of the young military officer who saw it all done and was there when it was created,” Ms. Powell replied. “He knows exactly how it works. He was briefed on it. And many other people are talking every day about how it worked. We’ve got all kinds of evidence that is mathematically irrefutable by experts, including three professors at Princeton. And it all proves the same thing.”

Ms. Powell added that sworn statements by poll watchers and evidence of the machines being hooked up to the internet further buttress her case.

“The machines are never supposed to be hooked up to the internet,” she said. “At least 30 of them were according to a published article that’s already out. That’s an egregious breach of election law in itself. That should never have happened. That … should automatically invalidate anything coming out of those machines in every state that happened in, if not across the country because they can change everything as they’re watching it.”
