Trump lands in trouble as his legal team distances themselves

The legal team of President Donald Trump has distanced itself from Sidney Powell, a conservative lawyer.

Powell, a lawyer whom Trump himself recently recommended, could no longer be part of the team after she made many inaccurate comments regarding the electoral voting process.

Powell had extended her conspiracy theories and vowed to “blow up” Georgia with a “biblical” lawsuit.

In a tweet last week, Trump had said that Powell was part of a team of “wonderful lawyers and representatives” spearheaded by Giuliani.

But a statement by Giuliani and Jenna Ellis, Trump’s frontline lawyers, said on Sunday that, “Sidney Powell is practising law on her own. She is not a member of the Trump legal team. She is also not a lawyer for the president in his personal capacity.”

The statement may indicate trouble in Trump’s legal camp as they have lost multiple cases in efforts to overturn Joe Biden’s victory in the November 3 presidential election.
