Sidney Powell, a lawyer representing the Trump campaign in the ongoing alleged election fraud case surrounding the 2020 U.S. presidential election, has doubled down on comments she made yesterday about hardware connected to electronic voting being seized in Germany.

During a press conference yesterday held by Trump lawyers Rudy Giuliani, Jenna Ellis, Lin Wood and the aforementioned Powell, a reporter asked if there was any truth to rumours of hardware from an electronic voting company named Scytl being seized in Germany, and whether it was related to the election fraud story.

That is true, it is somehow related to this. But I do not know whether good guys got it, or bad guys got it, Powell responded to the reporter.

Fact checkers have repeatedly debunked the claims since they first surfaced online. The company itself has also declared the statement to be fake news.

Powell, however, appears to be disputing those claims, given her answer during yesterday's press conference.

Headlines were made following the veteran lawyer's decision not to appear on Tucker Carlson Tonight in the evening after the press conference. Powell did make an appearance the following day, joining conservative radio host Glenn Beck the for an interview. There, Powell doubled down on her claims regarding the Scytl-linked server.

Twitter user RedWingGrips captured a snippet of the interview.

I'm hearing it was our forces that got those servers. So I think the government is now working on an investigation of what really happened, Powell said, potentially referring to a story broken by Fox Business host Lou Dobbs during his own interview with Powell. But we're getting in evidence also that there were lines into the servers from four foreign countries, all extremely adverse to the interests of the United States.

As of now, Powell has yet to present her evidence to the public, beyond statements from affidavits such as one she shared during a segment with Lou Dobbs.
