H/T to an anonymous commenter.
We've all been puzzled over the seeming confusion surrounding whether or not the Scytl servers in Germany have been seized by the US Government. Yesterday, after a Trump Recount staffer specifically confirmed that the servers had been seized, at the Big Presser Sidney Powell appeared to back away from that somewhat--saying she wasn't sure whether "good guys" or "bad guys" had taken possession of the servers.
I commented last night that I thought Powell was being cautious, unsure--as a personal lawyer for Trump--whether she could confirm a government action that she most likely knew about.
This morning Powell appeared on the Glenn Beck show--Tucker Carlson will be mightily miffed over that--and this time she forthrightly confirmed that the servers were seized by the US Government. Note, however, she first speaks of "our forces" "confiscating" the servers, and then refers to the "US Government" working on an "investigation." Note, too, that Powell offers some very specific information regarding the configuration of the servers. I continue to believe that, while various agencies of the Government may have had some involvement, DoJ must be driving this or controlling the process--it's the only thing that makes overall sense, given that this is all occurring in the context of legal processes:
The servers at Scytl in Germany WERE confiscated the other day. 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. But we're getting evidence, also, that there were lines into the servers from four foreign countries--all extremely adverse to the interests of the United States.
Regarding Powell's reference to "lines in," that sounds like the four foreign countries would have had access to the data on the servers and would have been able to manipulate it. I personally doubt that. My suspicion is that the connections were for the purpose of the server operators accessing the foreign countries' data. Others may wish to weigh in on the security implications of that setup.
Again, this type of investigation was always going to take time. Demands for EVIDENCE NOW, while understandable, are unreasonable in the current circumstances. Powell is obviously being very careful to maintain the necessary distance between her private representation of Donald Trump and what is a government led investigation of election fraud. No matter that they share common interests, they cannot act as, or be perceived as, a single team.
