Why Did Donald Trump Cut Sidney Powell From His Legal Team?


by Tyler O’Neil, PJ Media:

On Sunday, President Donald Trump’s lawyers former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani and Jenna Ellis released a statement distancing themselves from Sidney Powell, the lawyer who represents former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn. Powell had promoted a conspiracy theory involving voter machines switching votes from Trump to Joe Biden. She appears to have grown more unhinged, recently attacking Gov. Brian Kemp (R-Ga.) and even Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R-Ga.), who faces a runoff election against Raphael Warnock.

“Sidney Powell is practicing law on her own,” Giuliani and Ellis insisted. “She is not a member of the Trump Legal Team. She is also not a lawyer for the President in his personal capacity.”

Earlier this week, however, Powell appeared with Giuliani and Ellis in a Trump legal team press conference. The president listed her as part of his legal team.

Yet Powell appears to have taken the announcement in stride. “I agree with the statement today. I will represent #WeThePeople and seek the Truth,” she said in a statement. “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 or our votes for President Trump and other Republicans to be stolen by foreign interests or anyone else.”

Powell had made headlines in recent weeks for promoting a vibrant conspiracy theory about Dominion Voting Systems. She claimed that Dominion machines were switching votes from Trump to Biden, based on Smartmatic software somehow engineered by Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez to switch election results. Powell promised she would “release the kraken” of evidence, but refused to present evidence when reporters asked.

Smartmatic issued a statement, claiming that the company “has never provided Dominion Voting Systems with any software, hardware or other technology.” In fact, Smartmatic and Dominion are “competitors in the marketplace.” Smartmatic also insisted that it “does not have any ties to any governments or political parties in any country. It has never been owned, funded or backed by any government,” let alone that of Hugo Chavez.
