President Trump’s campaign on Sunday said Sidney Powell is not part of his legal team, despite her speaking at last week’s press conference on the evidence of voting fraud.
“Sidney Powell is practicing law on her own,” Trump’s attorneys, Rudy Giuliani and Jenna Ellis, said in a statement. “She is not a member of the Trump Legal Team. She is also not a lawyer for the President in his personal capacity.”
Powell issued a release afterward saying she understood the announcement from Giuliani and then added: “I will continue to represent #WeThePeople who had their votes for Trump and other Republicans stolen by massive fraud through Dominion and Smartmatic, and we will be filing suit soon. The chips will fall where they may, and we will defend the foundations of this great Republic.”
The split comes amid allegations made by Powell that she had evidence of large-scale voter fraud in Georgia and would be filing suit this week. She told Newsmax over the weekend, “Georgia’s probably going to be the first state I’m gonna blow up. We’ve got tons of evidence. It’s so much, it’s hard to pull it all together.”
Powell also contended that Republican Governor Brian Kemp and the Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger were being paid as part of a conspiracy with Dominion Voting Systems.
This could be the reason for the split since the Trump campaign did not want to be seen as officially going after a Republican governor. However if Powell has the facts of voter fraud correct, the Senate races in Georgia may be resolved so that no runoff election will be needed in Jan.
Stay tuned. More to come.
