Three lawyers in the national spotlight for their defense of President Trump scored major public victories before the Nov. 3 election, fueling conservatives’ hopes that they could overturn the loss to Joseph R. Biden.
But two months later, Sidney Powell, Lin Wood and Rudolph W. Giuliani failed in their mission. In the process, judges ruled that they spread unfounded election conspiracy theories that were endorsed by the president in daily tweets. The fraud claims spawned the “Stop the Steal” movement, whose participants rallied in Washington on Jan. 6 and then waged a violent riot at the U.S. Capitol.
None of the three’s election fraud lawsuits — filled with tales of rigged voting machines, China and Hugo Chavez — succeeded in court.

“Good lawyers do not make claims without evidence, and these lawyers don’t have any evidence,” Michael D. Gilbert, a professor at the University of Virginia School of Law, told The Washington Times. “Perpetrating fraud on the scale these lawyers imagine would require hundreds of officials, including Republicans, across multiple states and branches of government to conspire successfully — no traces, no leaks, no defections. That’s utterly implausible.”
