The point of organized crime is that the criminals stick together and protect each other from being brought to justice. One of the reasons a prosecutor will criminally indict nineteen people together under racketeering laws is that it causes the defendants to start turning on each other. And that’s now happening in Fulton County.
For instance, Kenneth Chesebro just made a court filing insisting that he’s never even met or had any contact with his co-conspirator Sidney Powell. That may be true, but it doesn’t matter. Under RICO laws, you don’t have to know what the others within your criminal enterprise are doing, in order to be criminally liable for the actions of the entire enterprise.
So this is an instance of Chesebro being desperate, or stupid, or both. This filing isn’t going to help him in any way. Nor is it going to delay things. He’s just throwing things at the wall and hoping against hope. But it does give away that Chesebro is really worried about being criminally linked to the actions of Sidney Powell, to the point that he’s throwing her under under the bus in his legal filings.
This comes after Rudy Giuliani’s attorney also floated the narrative that Giuliani wasn’t involved in Sidney Powell’s voting machine antics. Again, that doesn’t work as a defense. But it shows that the other defendants are looking at Powell as the one they need to try to throw under the bus.
Of course if Sidney Powell looks around and sees that her co-defendants are trying to mount an “At least I’m not Sidney Powell” defense, it might serve to motivate her to consider cutting a cooperation deal against all of them. It’s how this kind of prosecution is supposed to work.
