Sidney Powell, who is being sued for billions of dollars for voting machine lies, has called for Trump to return to office.
Sidney Powell explains that Trump should simply be reinstated and that a new inauguration day should be set for "pathetic fraud and receipt of a coup by the United States". pic.twitter.com/F3tfSvg8dG

Speaking at a QAnon conference in Texas, Powell said there had been a pathetic fraud and coup against the United States, saying, “It should be that he can just be reinstated and a new day of inauguration will be set and Biden is asked to move out of the White House and President Trump is asked to move back in. "
This is the level of disruption the Republican Party has reached. Republicans-elected are causing this disruption by blocking the 1/6 commission in the Senate. They are spreading the big lie and hoping that this madness can be mobilized in the Republicans who retake Congress in 2022.
Joe Biden rightly won the 2020 election. There is no process to bring a defeated former president back to power.
The QAnon GOP is a threat to democracy because they don't believe in accepting election results they don't like.
The former president is likely to face criminal charges. The cult could eventually splinter if its leader is a convicted criminal who has no chance of running for president again.
