Fox News host Tucker Carlson said he invited the Dallas lawyer to his show, but Powell refused to provide him and his team with evidence of his claim

“She never sent us evidence, despite many requests, polite requests,” Carlson said on her show Thursday “Not a page When we kept pressing she got mad and told us said to stop contacting her “
