Sidney Powell, the lawyer who made insane claims about voting machines and an undead Hugo Chávez is turning on Donald Trump. We all remember Sid, right? She was the woman raving next to Rudy Giuliani while his face melted. This is a significant domino in the fall of the Trump cartel and a confirmation – as though we needed it – that she and Rudy were always lying about "rigged voting machines".

At the time, Republicans asserted that Rudy and Sid had to be in possession of some evidence, some smoking gun that would prove Joe Biden and the zombie ex-president of Venezuela had been up to a nefarious and supernatural scheme to rob Trump of his electoral glory. If they didn’t have evidence, fans argued, then Rudy and Sid were genuinely crazy. Well, that’s how Occam’s razor works: the simplest explanation is usually the correct one.
