The Trump Campaign Fired Lawyer Sidney Powell
Trump campaign and legal team distanced itself from QAnon lawyer Sidney Powell on Sunday night, openly repudiating someone it described just last week as a member of the team’s “elite strike force.”
The Trump campaign abruptly booted Powell, who has alleged massive conspiracies with zero evidence, in a statement released Sunday.
“Sidney Powell is practicing law on her own,” Trump lawyers 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 appeared at an unhinged press conference with Giuliani and Ellis, came after she publicly accused Georgia Republican Gov. Brian Kemp of taking bribes from the Venezuelan government to award the state’s voting systems contracts to a company whose machines she claims changed votes from Trump to Biden.
