Recently, the Trump legal team disclosed that Sidney Powell is not directly employed by the president and is instead working voluntarily to expose the rampant voter fraud in the 2020 election.
But as usual, the media doesn’t stop publishing stories that aim to spread disinformation to sow division.
Politico published a story titled “Trump campaign cuts Sidney Powell from president’s legal team,” far from the truth.
President Donald Trump appears to have cut ties with Sidney Powell, a key member of his legal team who also represents former national security adviser Michael Flynn in his long-running attempt to unravel a guilty plea lying about his 2016 contacts with Russia.
The abrupt shake-up came in a terse Sunday-evening statement from the Trump campaign that did not explain Powell’s removal.
“Sidney Powell is practicing law on her own,” Trump’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani and campaign lawyer Jenna Ellis said in the statement. “She is not a member of the Trump Legal Team. She is also not a lawyer for the President in his personal capacity.”
In recent weeks, Powell had made headlines for her increasingly outrageous and unsupported claims of voter fraud in the 2020 election, repeatedly vowing to “release the Kraken” of evidence, only to refuse to produce it when asked by reporters.
Trump’s top legal advisor Jenna Ellis took it upon herself to set the record straight on Newsmax, clarifying that Powell is working independently. Ellis claimed that Powell’s main task is to collect evidence on the Dominion voting system, as they estimate that that will take longer than what Trump’s legal team is currently working on.
