Trump’s campaign denies their relationship with lawyer Sidney Powell after Thursday’s bloated press conference of Trump’s campaign, when she claimed without evidence that the late Hugo Chavez, among others, was responsible for rigging the election. The campaign claims she is “not a member of Trump’s legal team,” although President and Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani has previously identified her as a member of the team.
In the days following the press conference, Powell made further unfounded claims against conservative networks, and her allegations were even questioned by Fox News̵
“Sidney Powell is a lawyer herself. She is not a member of Trump’s legal team. She is also not a lawyer for the president in his personal capacity,” said Giuliani, a senior Trump campaign adviser, Jenna Ellis.
During a news conference Thursday, Giuliani identified Powell as a member of the team defending Mr. Trump, and the president himself identified Powell as someone who worked for him on a November 14 tweet.
“I look forward to Mayor Giuliani leading the legal effort to defend OUR RIGHT TO FREE AND FAIR ELECTIONS! “Then Mr Trump wrote on Twitter.
On Thursday, Ellis called the team at a press conference that included Powell, the “elite team.” Powell, Giuliani and Ellis claim to keep their biggest pieces of evidence in court, where.
Powell was a lawyer for General Michal Flynn, a former national security adviser to the president who was fired for lying to Vice President Mike Pence about his Russian contacts and convicted of lying to the FBI.
