Sidney Powell appears on Fox News to promote a conspiracy theory that claims a supercomputer named “Hammer” used a program called “Scorecard” to steal the election from Donald Trump. Powell is the attorney for former Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn.
Powell is invited back to the network the following Sunday to promote the conspiracy again.
The conspiracy is also promoted by Steve Bannon, George Papadopoulos, right-wing propagandist John Cardillo, and Newsmax reporter Emerald Robinson.
The basis of the myth is that a former intelligence contractor named Dennis Montgomery created the supercomputer and the software. Montgomery himself claims he made this technology, but the man is infamous for lying to tarnish the U.S. government.
Montgomery also claimed in 2017 to have evidence of the Obama Administration spying on Donald Trump. He even sued government officials for “covering up” the alleged spying. He never produced the evidence, and a court dismissed his case.
