Sidney Powell has been called a lot of things during her successful career as an attorney; “loose cannon” hasn’t been one of those titles. Until now. Like a ticked-off legal vigilante, she has been making incredibly dramatic statements about massive voter fraud evidence she claims to have uncovered. On Sunday, she went so far as to say that criminal charges would be coming soon, at a “biblical” level.
Well, there’s one issue with the bold claims she’s made to Fox Business, Newsmax TV and other media outlets: She’s not officially part of President Trump’s legal team.
Sunday night, after Powell’s latest dramatic claims, Trump’s personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani, issued a statement that said in part “Sidney Powell is practicing law on her own. She is not a member of the Trump legal team. She is not a lawyer for the president in his personal capacity.”
Powell followed that by releasing not one, but two separate statements in which she further hammered home the fact that she has evidence of voter fraud (which she has yet to show) and confirmed that she’s doing her legal-eagle work on her own. In rebuttal statement No. 1, Powell said:
“I understand today’s press release. I will continue to represent #WeThePeople who had their votes for Trump and other Republicans stolen by massive fraud through Dominion and Smartmatic, and we will be filing suit soon. The chips will fall where they may, and we will defend the foundations of this great Republic. #KrakenOnSteroids”
After having more time to think and formulate deeper thoughts on the matter, Powell doubled down by sending out statement No. 2:
“I agree with the campaign’s statement that I am not part of the campaign’s legal team. I never signed a retainer agreement or sent the President or the campaign a bill for my expenses or fees.
My intent has always been to expose all the fraud I could find and let the chips fall where they may – whether it be upon Republicans or Democrats.
The evidence I’m compiling is overwhelming that this software tool was used to shift millions of votes from President Trump and other Republican candidates to Biden and other Democrat candidates. We are proceeding to prepare our lawsuit and plan to file it this week. It will be epic.
We will not allow this great Republic to be stolen by communists from without and within or our votes altered or manipulated by foreign actors in Hong Kong, Iran, Venezuela, or Serbia, for example, who have neither regard for human life nor the people who are the engine of this exceptional country.
#WeThePeople elected Donald Trump and other Republican candidates to restore the vision of America as a place of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.”
You would think that if Powell had all this evidence, Giuliani and company would not only welcome her on the Trump legal team, they would elect her team captain!
