Now that it appears as if Joe Biden will be assisted into the Oval Office, Democrats and their allies are looking to exact revenge on President Donald Trump and anyone who fought for him.

That’s the only way to explain the City of Detroit’s complaint to a federal judge this week against former federal prosecutor Sidney Powell.

The Democrat-controlled city is apparently not happy with Powell after she filed one of her infamous “Kraken” lawsuits against the city alleging massive and election irregularities.

Law&Crime has more:

The City of Detroit wants Sidney Powell and her self-styled “Kraken” team to face sanctions for “frivolously undermining ‘People’s faith in the democratic process and their trust in our government.’”

The Motor City’s motion asks a federal judge to fine the lawyers, ban them from practicing in the Eastern District in Michigan, and refer them to the Wolverine State’s bar for grievance proceedings.

“It’s time for this nonsense to end,” Detroit’s lawyer David Finktold Law&Crime in a phone interview.

“The lawyers filing these frivolous cases that undermine democracy must pay a price,” Fink added.

“Plaintiffs and their counsel understood that the mere filing of a suit (no matter how frivolous) could, without any evidence, raise doubts in the minds of millions of Americans about the legitimacy of the 2020 presidential election,” says Fink’s motion (what an appropriate name). “As this Court noted, ‘Plaintiffs ask th[e] Court to ignore the orderly statutory scheme established to challenge elections and to ignore the will of millions of voters.’”

The sanctions complaint goes on.

“The key ‘factual’ allegations from the supposed fact witnesses, some of whom attempt to cloak their identities while attacking democracy, have been debunked,” the sanctions motion states. “The allegations about supposed fraud in the processing and tabulation of absentee ballots by the City at the TCF Center have been rejected by every court which has considered them. If any of the claims in this lawsuit had merit, that would have been demonstrated in those cases.

“This abuse of the legal process at the expense of states should not go unpunished,” Fink said.

Fink claims Powell made meritless, frivolous legal claims and it had a negative impact on Detriot, arguably the most dangerous city in America.

And it certainly appears as if this is a Democrat stronghold trying to retaliate against Powell for trying to investigate and look into allegations of widespread election and voter fraud, which she has a legal right to do.

Powell revealed earlier this week that the election evidence she will soon share could turn into a racketeering case under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act.
