Trump campaign disowns own election conspirator lawyer Sidney Powell

President Donald Trump’s political team officially disowned attorney Sidney Powell’s efforts on Sunday night, just days after Powell made headlines in a bizarre and rambling press conference where she alleged a massive conspiracy to electoral fraud against the president.

“Sidney Powell practices law alone. She is not a member of Trump’s legal team. She is also not the president’s lawyer in a personal capacity, ”Trump’s lawyers Rudy Giuliani and Jenna Ellis said in a statement. The attempt to retroactively erase Powell from the president’s legal team has been squarely contradicted by statements from that team – and Trump – over the past week.

The disallowance came after Powell, Ellis and Giuliani teamed up on Thursday to allege that a sprawling anti-Trump conspiracy theory involving a voting machine company and late Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez. After this press conference, Giuliani reaffirmed that Powell was speaking on behalf of the campaign.

“It’s representative of our legal team,” Giuliani said at the event. “We represent President Trump and we represent the Trump campaign. When I’m done, Sidney Powell and then Jenna Ellis will follow me. Powell herself has set up an office at the Trump campaign headquarters.
