Shipwreckedcrew has taken time out from his Thanksgiving to read Sidney Powell's Georgia complaint and to provide an overview of it. For my money--and, no, I didn't have to pay to read the article--the most interesting part is SWC's explanation of how Powell got her full case into federal court and how that intersects with the Trump legal team's statement that Powell is practicing law on her own. SWC's explanation fits in well with Giuliani's later statement that he and Powell are pursuing "different theories":
Powell filed this action in federal court, but procedurally she is seeking to have the matter heard by the Court both as a federal constitutional challenge — which gets the matter into federal court — but also as an “election contest” under Georgia State law which would be heard by the federal court pursuant to what’s called “ancillary” jurisdiction. When a plaintiff has both state and federal claims that they can assert in a lawsuit, “federal question” jurisdiction is the basis upon which the federal court will hear and resolve the disputes under federal law. Related state law claims can also be determined by the federal court — applying state substantive law and procedures where necessary — pursuant to the court’s “ancillary” jurisdiction so as to allow all the matters to be resolved as part of one proceeding.
This is just a guess, but this may be one reason why the Trump Campaign opted to announce that Powell is working on her own. I believe the Trump campaign will be filing an “election contest” in Georgia state court very shortly, seeking to prove that a number of unqualified voters larger than the margin between the candidates cast ballots for Biden. If the Campaign was working hand-in-hand with Powell when she filed this suit on behalf of the Electors, it is possible that the Court would consider the campaign an “indispensable” party, and allow the defendants to bring them into this action.
Working separately — separate attorneys and separate investigators — is the basis upon which the Campaign will likely file its own action in state court. That, in effect, gives them at least two election contests underway in different courts at the same time, each with different allegations and theories supporting their request for relief.
In other words, it begins to look like coordinated strategies. You can read the rest of SWC's article here:
We'll be looking forward to further analysis from SWC.
