Trump campaign cuts ties with lawyer Sidney Powell after bizarre election fraud allegations | US Elections 2020
Maybe Sidney Powell has gone too far Rudy Giuliani This time.
A few days after the Trump campaign’s legal team fired, Firebrand distanced itself from the Conservative lawyer, in which Powell made a number of misleading statements about the electoral voting process, sinless conspiracy theories and promised to blow up Georgia “with the Bible.” Case.
“Sidney Powell is studying his own law. He is not a member of the Trump legal team. He is not a presidential lawyer in his own right,” Giuliani and another Trump lawyer, Jenna Ellis, said in a statement Sunday.
Trump, who tweeted last week that he was part of a group of “wonderful lawyers and representatives” led by Giuliani, noted Powell’s involvement.
It was not immediately clear from the campaign and Powell did not immediately send a comment email.
The report points out that there is confusion in a legal panel that lost the case in its attempts to overturn the results of the November 3 election. Law firms withdraw from lawsuits Trump threw out the campaign’s demand to get nearly 7 million voters to vote Over there.
“This claim, like Frankenstein’s Monster, is intertwined with two distinct theories to avoid controlling the paradigm,” he wrote in an awkward order issued on Saturday. On Sunday afternoon, the Trump campaign appealed against Fran’s ruling in Pennsylvania.
After similar failed court efforts in Georgia, Michigan and Arizona, states are prevented from certifying the totality of their votes.
The report on Powell is the latest sign of war over his attitude, even within some conservative circles. Fox News presenter Tucker Carlson said on his show last week that his team had asked for evidence to support Powell’s claims, but Powell did not provide anything.
At a news conference on Thursday, Powell made headlines with his statements, where he mistakenly suggested that Giuliani and Ellis, along with a server providing evidence of voting irregularities, be located in Germany.
However, his contributions that day were mostly Giuliani’s hair is obscured by dye failure.
In an interview with Newsmax on Saturday, Georgia’s Republican Gov. Brian Kemp and its Republican Secretary of State appeared to accuse the voting system of being part of a conspiracy to win the contract award.
“Georgia may be the first state where I’m going to explode, and Mr Kemp and the Secretary of State should go with it,” he said, adding that a case he later planned to file against the state would be “biblical”.
The status of that case was not clear Sunday night.
Powell, a former federal attorney, took over as chief prosecutor for Michael Flynn, Trump’s former national security adviser last year, who pleaded guilty at special adviser Robert Mueller’s trial in Russia.
Since then, a federal judge has rejected his claim about the misconduct of the trial and responded strangely to some of his arguments, including what he said at the trial several weeks ago that his conversations with Trump about Flynn’s case were privileged.
He has backed a judicial decision to dismiss the case, which is pending before U.S. District Judge Emmett Sullivan.
