The president’s legal team took to Twitter to distance themselves from Ms Powell, who claimed Venezuelan communists helped interfere in the US election, and insisted she was not working for the outgoing president.
The move came just days after Ms Powell appeared on stage with Rudy Giuliani at a bizarre press conference where the former New York mayor also made baseless charges of voter fraud.
“Sidney Powell practices law alone. She is not a member of Trump’s legal team. She is not the president’s lawyer in a personal capacity either ”, declared MM. Giuliani and Jenna Ellis in the press release.
On Saturday, Ms. Powell, a former federal prosecutor, said an upcoming Georgia election trial “will be biblical” as the president’s campaign continues to try to prove his allegations of baseless voter fraud.
“Georgia is probably going to be the first state I’m going to blow up,” she told Newsmax TV.
“We have tons of evidence. It’s so, it’s hard to put it all together. Hopefully this week we’ll get them ready to lay down, and it will be biblical. “
During last week’s press conference, Ms Powell claimed that Mr Trump won the election by a ‘landslide’ but was tricked by an ‘algorithm’ designed by Dominion Voting Systems in their machines. vote.
Ms Powell claimed the fraud was controlled by figures such as George Soros, the Clinton Foundation, communists from Venezuela, Cuba and China and corrupt election officials.
She claimed that the machines for the Dominion voting systems were created in Venezuela under the leadership of the late Hugo Chavez so he never lost an election.
Dominion has denied the allegation and the Trump campaign has produced no evidence to support it.
Ms Powell’s claims were even too much for Fox News host Tucker Carlson, who said she had no evidence to support them and had gotten into a public argument with her.
