Trump Cuts Ties with Sidney Powell


Pro-Trump attorney Sidney Powell was delivered some tough news this week. President Trump informed the lawyer that she will not be appointed to a “special counsel” position to probe her unproven claims regarding election fraud. To make the bad news for Powell even worse, Trump took measures a step further and has also cut off all communication avenues between the two.

The Daily Wire reports:

Trump dropped the idea of “giving her such a formal portfolio for pursuing her conspiracy theories around voter irregularities and fraud,” The Daily Beast reported. “Asked whether Trump told Powell that she wouldn’t be ‘special counsel,’ Trump’s attorney Rudy Giuliani — who leads the president’s post-election legal team — told The Daily Beast on Tuesday: ‘Yes,’ adding, ‘she is no longer part of [our] team. She is on her own.’”

Powell later released a statement to Fox News, saying, “I have been blocked by White House counsel and others from seeing or speaking to the President since I raised the public formal findings and even more evidence of foreign interference from Iran and China.”

The news comes after Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani sought to distance himself, the president, and the president’s legal defense team from Powell this week. Giuliani’s remarks came after Powell had repeatedly been sighted at the White House in recent days, including on Friday, when she was accompanied by Lt. General Michael Flynn. The Trump campaign, at the behest of the president, distanced itself from Powell last month after she made unproven claims during a press conference that many of Trump’s frequent defenders were stunned by — including Tucker Carlson and Rush Limbaugh. The Washington Post reported that a Trump campaign official said at the time that Powell was “too crazy” to have Trump’s support.

“Let me say definitely, Sidney Powell was not part of our legal team,” Giuliani said this week. “She hasn’t been for five weeks. She is not a special counsel for the president; she does not speak for the president, nor does she speak for the administration. She speaks for herself.”

As the saying goes, this was the straw that broke the camel’s back. Now that Powell has been completely cut off from President Trump she will face a much steeper battle to gain traction with her unproven claims.

Powell has hundreds and hundreds of sworn depositions.
So Trump doesnt need her help?
If courts will not give Powell a hearing why should the courts give Trump a hearing? United you stand divided you fall.
Is the something else that Trump has yet to play?
Where’s Director of the CIA Gina Haspel?

Trump has been repeatedly betrayed by his advisers and “close” confidents. I question his character judgement given his dismissal of true allies and defense of his enemies such as Barr. Sessions, McMasters.

It is hard to argue against your point, and I hope he’s not dismissing a good ally in favor of a traitorous character close to him. When you look at the totality of those he has/needs to get things done, he’s walking a tight thin rope that I’m amazed he’s thrived let alone survived. I’m not sure he’s seen all things coming but I believe he’s guilty of giving people chances and imho far too many betrayals yet he’s managed to sidestep danger.

It’s like back in Year one of his administration where “Deep State Sleepers” in the white house have once again created a firewall keeping the truth from reaching Trump.

He sut off powell and her hundreds of pages of swonr Affidavits and audits of Dominion Computers and now the SCOTUS has set January 22nd as the day for Pennsylvania to respond to Trumps Lawsuit ?
Giuliani didnt see that coming and is at the same time dismissive about Powell.
Think about this – everyone is saying Barr didn’t do anything. What about Giuliany? Giuliani went to the Ukraine – investigated, made inquiries – where’s the case Giulani came up with? – Did he even pass off his findings to the DOJ? Why is no one asking Giuliani – Hey Rudy are you part of the Slow walk crowd?

Haspel isn’t on Trump’s side. After what Powell has done for the general, and all the socuments she has gathered about criminality of the election, this doesn’t make sence. Maybe you’re right. He got bad advise from wishy-washy advisors who don’t have America at heart.

I read she was flown to Quantanamo Bay for questioning on the Dominian machines and the CIA Germany facility collecting all the voting data. The CIA has an operation recording everything we do to protect us from Terriost. I hear, she was spilling the beans on this whole operation from Brennon/Obama…. let see what he has…Remember, he needs to be careful as he does not want to wind up at the end of some personal disaster or his family.. CIA has many bad people working full time and contractors… the question is/was who was running this operation….

I am not giving up on him but he is also wrong on wanting to give $2000 to people when we are a bankrupt nation. Debt is going to kill this country. All it would take to fix the problem is to open the doors on business. Government has really screwed up this country!

From the very beginning I could tell that Ruddy was jealous of her, so he cut her off. I think he made a mistake. They said also that when she went to the WHITE HOUSE to talk about the Special Counsel, that she would tell the people that didn’t agree with having the Special Counsel, that they were lazy and not loyal to the President. I find this to be extreme, because she doesn’t know the President or anyone else, to comport herself in such a manner.

Very confusing. Is this perhaps a diversion or a smoke screen or some sort of ploy? Very disconcerting. Wouldn’t seem logical that Powell would have provided Trump specific and detailed information some time ago? This doesn’t make sense at this late hour. Was Trump completely duped or is this part of a larger plan unfolding at the 12th hour? Only time will tell but it is certainly confounding!

President Trump is, if nothing else, intelligent and does not cut-off his nose to spite his face. There is something here that no doubt is not obvious. This convoluted illegal mess requires analysis of separation with Powell as a necessary action in order to avoid tainting her presentation to competent authority. In every case before the courts, there has been an element of court bias and lack of concern in having facts and proof allowed to take place – the Deep State has tentacles of which we are all aware. So far, while we know that much of what she has said is evident, she is not free to move freely to fashion legitimacy. This issue cannot be examined and may never be allowed to see the light of day – too many victims – the, can’t see the forest for the trees. There is far too much proof of voter fraud and manipulation of ballots to say this election is anywhere near legitimate. President Trump must declare martial law and refer the issue to the House for a decision that should declare him President.

She has uncovered multiple cases of fraud in her investigation of the fraud going on in the 2020 federal election. The hundreds of affidavits is the evidence that the many judges don’t recognize as evidence. Something is fishy in our judicial system.

I think Trump’s legal team is the ones that s/b fired not Powell. If Trump doesn’t appoint her as a SC to look into election fraud it will never be investigated and he will rue the day he did not appt her as election fraud SC. Rudy is well meaning but he is looking after his own 15 mins of fame. He likes being the BIG DOG and doesn’t want anyone upstaging him which Powell would with ease. Trump will rue the day he distance himself from her.

I don’t know anyone here from Adam but given everything that has happened for 4 years
and the tenacity and hate from the left to get Trump in any way shape or form this article
isn’t the whole story and suspect. Remember don’t believe anything you hear and only half of what you see. When I hear people attacking each other it smells like a fix. This I know, Sidney Powell represented and did a good job for Flynn and Trump finally pardoned him, none too soon. Giuliani is a great attorney and was a great NY mayor. The left has claimed everything from both of them is untrue and even the courts have rejected every claim. The truth is every claim by both of them is not only true, the courts haven’t taken a single piece of evidence and allowed it to even be examined. There is mountains of evidence from Obama, Clinton, deep state down to the lowest ranking left wing scumbag of fraud and criminality and if you burp its all over the fake Gerbel’s media in a well greased manner yet a left winger can blow you away on camera and nothing happens like it don’t exist. The constitution is dead as a practical matter. SCOTUS is a nonentity as far as upholding the constitution. My advice, ignore the latest nothing information but get your guns, ammo, bible, prays, and faith as it is time to secede, fight a civil war, and kick ass if Trump is forced out of office after being massively frauded as if we don’t, America is gone. I was hoping to retire and relax, but looks like there is a call to arms and prepare. Hope for the best but prepare for the worst. There is over 75 million against unknown numbers of scum that must be scrubbed away. When Washington crossed the Delaware it was win or die. There is no other option. Roberts thinks doing nothing avoids left wing violence from erupting. He hasn’t seen anything yet. They will still stack the court and he will be irrelevant. I can see China offering to come in and assist the “fellow” communists. You haven’t seen anything yet. People laughed at the doomsday preppers. Not anymore.
