As early as last week the Trump legal team appeared to include Michael Flynn attorney Sidney Powell. On Sunday the campaign released a statement distancing itself from Powell who has made bombshell claims about voter fraud that have yet to be substantiated.
According to Mediaite:
President Donald Trump’s lawyers put out a statement on Sunday evening distancing themselves from fellow attorney Sidney Powell after she pushed absurd conspiracy theories claiming widespread voter fraud. For a legal team who has called themselves an “elite strike force” but whose results are most charitably described as blundering, Powell’s recent commentary apparently went a step too far, sparking a very public split.
On Saturday night, Powell went after Trump ally Governor Brian Kemp (R-GA) in an appearance on Newsmax TV, claiming she has evidence of voting machine fraud in the state while arguing Kemp is complicit.
Then on Sunday evening, the campaign released a statement to distance themselves and the Trump campaign from Powell, and for the first time declaring that she was not actually part of the campaign’s official legal team.
“Sidney Powell is practicing law on her own. She is not a member of the Trump Legal Team. She is also not a lawyer for the President in a personal capacity,” Jenna Ellis, Senior Legal Adviser to the Trump campaign, and Rudy Giuliani, President Trump’s lawyer, stated in the press release.

Last Thursday, Powell appeared at a press conference alongside Eliis, Giuliani, and others where she claimed widespread fraud connected to George Soros, the Clinton Foundation, and even Hugo Chavez who died in 2013.
President Trump even touted Powell as part of the team.
I look forward to Mayor Giuliani spearheading the legal effort to defend OUR RIGHT to FREE and FAIR ELECTIONS! Rudy Giuliani, Joseph diGenova, Victoria Toensing, Sidney Powell, and Jenna Ellis, a truly great team, added to our other wonderful lawyers and representatives!

I’ve spent the last four days with the President’s national legal team, and I’m confident we are going to preserve FREE and FAIR elections in America!@RudyGiuliani @SidneyPowell1
COUNT ALL LEGAL VOTES!!

Fox News also reported on the issue:
In a statement obtained by the Wall Street Journal, Powell said: “I agree with the statement today. I will represent #WeThePeople and seek the Truth. I intend to expose all the fraud and let the chips fall where they may. We will not allow the foundations of this great Republic to be destroyed by abject fraud.”
The statement comes after Powell – who also serves as Gen. Mike Flynn’s lawyer – has given multiple press conferences on behalf of Trump, who included her in a list of lawyers for his team in a Nov. 14 tweet.
In a Saturday-night interview with Newsmax, Powell appeared to accuse Georgia’s Republican governor, Brian Kemp, and its Republican secretary of state of being part of a conspiracy involving a voting-system contract award that she contends harmed Trump’s reelection bid.
“Georgia’s probably going to be the first state I’m going to blow up and Mr. Kemp and the secretary of state need to go with it,” she said, later adding that a lawsuit she planned to file against the state would be “biblical.”
It remains unclear if the Trump team is distancing itself from Powell for her comments or if they are doing it to give her more of an opportunity to explore the powerful claims of fraud without increased media pushback.
Powell has released a statement on the circumstances and stated it will be “epic:”
I agree with the campaign’s statement that I am not part of the campaign’s legal team. I never signed a retainer agreement or sent the President or the campaign a bill for my expenses or fees.
My intent has always been to expose all the fraud I could find and let the chips fall where they may–whether it be upon Republicans or Democrats.
The evidence I’m compiling is overwhelming that this software tool was used to shift millions of votes from President Trump and other Republican candidates to Biden and other Democrat candidates. We are proceeding to prepare our lawsuit and plan to file it this week. It will be epic.
We will not allow this great Republic to be stolen by communists from without and within or our votes altered or manipulated by foreign actors in Hong Kong, Iran, Venezuela, or Serbia, for example, who have neither regard for human life nor the people who are the engine of this exceptional country.
#WeThePeople elected Donald Trump and other Republican candidates to restore the vision of America as a place of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
Nice piece of fake “news” and misinformation. Sidney Powell was never on the President’s defense team even though she is and will continue to be the MVP for all American Patriots.
What the he$$?
Again, someone had to make those claims and it was Sidney. But the evidence will be presented in court not to the media. I suspect Sidney did all of this to assist Trump and his plan to get it all to the SC for judgement. And a good reason to add another conservative judge to the SC so Roberts is NOT the tie breaker at all. That snake is too devious.
And does anyone at all believe Trump was blindsided by the liberal left and their bogus fraud vote counter machines. I think the dim wits and their conspirators got plenty of rope to do their worst and indeed the did, even doubling down on the fraud in the important split states. We even watched it happen.
So, now the consequences will begin for this level of conspiracy very soon. And I think the world of you too President Trump. Smartest man I know though only have watched you operate for four years under the nefarious assaults of the dim wits and the criminal deep state pals. You got em this time in their biggest fraud yet. I hope this means jail for the lot of them.
Chief Justice John Roberts IS a snake.
He was a George Bush appointee.
I think this is a 2 track system for Trump… the civil lane as Rudy is pursuing and a military one-using 100 military aircraft to confiscate the servers in Germany used for our election, I am sure the airplanes were used to interview, interrigate people on the tarmac and if required, made as military jails. If this was a computer system to take over this country as other countries using this system, then it become a military operation. This could be called a coup, insurgency, war….. The militarty court is always in top secrete…so we will not know until some will be intervied/arrested,etc. or nothing…. something triggered the military to send 100 planes to Germany w/o notification to the command center in Florida… they saw 100 millitary planes flying on their radar and they asked the commander….would like to know his answer…
Joe, where did you read this about the military planes sent to Germany? I can’t find any news about tit, do you have a link?
Jail – Believe Biden’s claim to fame of “we’ve put together the most intensive & inclusive voter fraud ORGANIZATION ever seen in American politics. Since it is the one world global government, aka the new world order & the deep state establishment INSIDERS working with them, this is treason and jail is not the usual sentence for treason or crimes against humanity, which they are all guilty of!
Guess Slow Joe couldn’t take being reminded so often of his lack of a single accomplishment in 47+ years as a career politician on the federal payroll, he chose to lay claim to being a part of the one major accomplishment he was connected to in his VP 8 years. How ironic that their choosing to run him as their candidate for POTUS in 2020 is what is also likely to totally destroy the elitists behind the criminally insane one world global government, aka the new world order. LOL
Sidney Powell, YOU ROCK! KEEP ON ROCKING & STACKING UP MORE & MORE EVIDENCE OF COMPUTER VOTING IN ALL THE STATES USING THEM – BECAUSE THEY NEVER FIGURED ANYONE WOULD BE ABLE TO PROVE IT WITH THEIR OWN ALGORITHMS.
Bomb away Ms Powell !
St Michael…Be at her side.✝️
She said she was going to expose all criminals involved in this heinous conspiracy to destroy Trump, the presidency and this country and that she/they had tons of evidence. The fact that she did not produce any evidence is because all of it is brought to court and ultimately the Supreme Court for the final decision.
In fact, President Trump has himself made the allegations of fraud and thousands of ballots being fraudulent.
So, I do not get why people ,who are on our side, are dumping on her.
Unless AG Barr has something that will blow this demon-rat conspiracy sky high, something is not right!
Attorney General William Barr (and US Attorney John Durham) are not right. Where are those subpoenas, Barr? The election is over, now what’s your excuse?
Speak softly it may wake them up. They only get up for payday.
I will never be able to respect China Joe if President. The thug needs to be behind bars.
Half the Republicans in House and Senate are gutless RINOs and Never Trumpers. They are pathetic – few are defending the president and many have him to thank for winning their seats.
I hear you!🙏
R.I. the folks dumping on Sydney are the same weak people that Thomas Paine referred to as “summer soldiers and sunshine Patriots…” this term aptly describes the weak and spineless elected GOP congressional members that haven’t spoken up to defend our great president. True Patriots stand with our Commander and Chief through all of this corruption. God bless Sydney Powell and may she be equipped with the “full armor of God “..
WHAT?! Is POTS INSANE!!! One would WANT Sidney on ones legal team!!! Are you TRYING to LOSE this Election, Mr. President?!?!?!?!
Your comment about attorney Powell is just not reasonable. But everyone’s nerves are on edge, right now.
Relax, DawnieR She was never on his legal team. This is a bit of fake news in order to make you think it’s all unraveling. It isn’t. It ONLY unravels if you take their bait and stop supporting your duly re-elected President Trump, which is exactly what they’re attempting to do. They want you to lose faith because that’s what leftists depend on so they can win.
I’m surprise that TTN parrots so much fake news. Trump has been surrounded by Traitors and back stabbers from the beginning. How smart do you have to be to know that Trump who draws tens of thousands of supporters at rallies 5 times a day did not beat a senile idiot who never left his basement except to bark at 12 cars. It is obvious to any thinking person that massive fraud exists. The “Diebold” electronic voting machine were exposed on CSPAN TWENTY YEARS AGO for the FACT that they could “flip” the vote. Dead people voting…PROVEN….vans pulling up in the dark of night with boxes and boxes of Biden votes…PROVEN….MASS MAIL OUT, NO ID, NO SIGNATURE…DUH!! SHOW PROOF! Hey Sidney show me all your cards before I place my bet, or I will pretend I can’t see any of this!
I don’t know if this move is strategic, but Sidney Powell certainly gets my prayers. She is a warrior for the Truth!
First thing that comes to my mind is that two different groups of lawyers filing against the Dominion computer algorithms program & other fraudulent voting cheating makes it more for the SCOTUS to take both under consideration at the same time & settle it quickly. Don’t know if it is true or not bur recently read that watcher Lin Wood is filing law suit against fraud in Georgia voting.
Once again our Republican “leaders” shoot themselves in the foot. What the Hell is going on??? We are in the middle of a war we start shooting each other!
David, calm down. You’re doing EXACTLY what they want you to do.
You go girl!
Finally, someone with enough guts to do what is right, regardless of WHO the criminals are! POLITICIANS, MEDIA and others don’t get a pass!
Watch out Wray and Barr, she has more guts than both of you combined!
DEATH TO TRAITORS AND CENSORSHIP!
CONVENTION OF STATES!
God Bless America!
I recommend UNITY OF PURPOSE … Trump is the client and you are “The dream Team!” Just look into the Dominion System and forget your egos …. Sydney is a great lawyer and Trump advocate …. let her fly!!!!!
Rudy is having a hissy fit. Sidney is smarter than he is and he doesn’t like it.
Maybe & maybe not! Think Rudy is more interested in results of JUSTICE & overturning this fraudulent election than he is in his ego!
Why would TTN be conveying so much fake leftist news unless they actually believe it? I think Powell has been right on the money with all her accusations against Dominion, the Democrats, and the never Trumper RINOS, and I expect she will be able to prove all of it in court, also.
BIDEN = FRAUD!!!
They need to cut loose with the server information and proof of payoffs to the Rino’s running Georgia recounts.
I read somewhere that if Mz. Powell was on the Presidential legal team, she would be ineligible for appointing to the cabinet positions. I would love to see her usurp Christopher Wray’s seat, but not sure if another agency currently in the throes of bureaucratic bullies would be a better place for her!! She is Wonder Woman 2020. Just like Candace Owens is.
I’m at a point now that it’s unclear what to believe or what is up , down all I know is things are so FUCKED UP in America we need to start a civil war and just put a end to the CNNs and all the Nazi propaganda first then go after the corrupt politicians and then the Corrupt big Commie Companies like Facebook and Twitter and if that doesn’t stop the Traitors to America then I don’t know what to do but if we just sit an our ass and do nothing then we are in trouble
She speaks for the people!!!!!
stand up and cheer her on!!!!!
Anyone calling themselves a Republican needs to distance themselves from other Republican who want to give cover to their Republican “friends” who “may” have been involved in election shenanigans. If there is evidence of fraud by GA Political “Leaders”. It’ll prove itself. No need to remove a hard hitter like Sidney Powell She is a heroine.
just in: GA is shredding vote documents. Hm-m-m. what do you think that means?
WHAT IT MEANS , IS CIVIL WAR WILL HAPPEN . AND ANYONE WHO ALLOWS THIER GUNS TO BE TAKEN AWAY IS A IDIOT . IF THEY COME FOR THEM YOU KNOW THEY ARE COMMUNIST NO MATTER WHAT THESE LYING NEWS STATIONS SAY THEY ACT LIKE THOSE WORTHLESS DAMOCRAPS ALL THEY ARE DOING IS LYING TO THE PUBLIC. DO NOT GIVE IN OR YOU LOOSE.
I hope Sydney comes thru with her claims. The A team isn’t showing me anything. Good luck Sydney. Go Get’m
She is probably correct.
It is up to God and the Nine Justices. Will they stand up for God, Country, Trump, and Justice, or will they vote for Socialism, thievery, blatant fraud, and the BEAST, (Fake News Conglomerates) Will we be free or will we be Slaves Without Chains, ruled by other men’s brains? Pray that our Justices will be honorable and serve us, and God, not Satan!
It will be time to HUNT THE BEAST. RED BLOODED AMERICANS OWN THIS COUNTRY !!! IF THOSE IDIOTS DONT LIKE IT TFB. WE WILL FIGHT !!!
President Trump is for the American Patriots who work hard everyday. President Trump cares about the American Patriots. Now these rats 🐀 that cause soooooooo much trouble need to be dealt with. The olden days, you do the crime, you do the time. There are consequences to baaaaad actions. The American people want justice on these nasty, dirty evil corrupted demonRATS. IT’S WE THE AMERICAN PEOPLE RULE. JUSTICE IS THAT JUSTICE. NOOOOOO REWARDS FOR BAD ACTIONS. CONSEQUENCES, CONSEQUENCES, CONSEQUENCES. THAT’S WHAT AMERICAN PEOPLE WANT AND AMERICAN PEOPLE NEED TO END THE DESTRUCTION OF THESE NASTY EVIL 😈 PEOPLE. IN GOD WE TRUST. GOD BLESS THE USA 🇺🇸. 🇺🇸. IN JESUS NAME I PRAY THIS AMEN 🙏.
