Is President Trump looking to appoint Sidney Powell as a special counsel to investigate voter fraud in the 2020 presidential election?
Published reports indicate the commander in chief floated Powell’s name to probe the allegations during a Friday meeting at the White House.
The Associated Press says Trump “went as far as discussing getting Powell security clearance, according to two people familiar with the meeting, who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss the private conversation.”
The AP also noted, “It is unclear whether Trump intends to try to move forward with the effort to install Powell.” It’s actually the U.S. attorney general who is responsible for appointing special counsels.
