You're Fired: Conspiracy-Theorist Sidney Powell Booted From Trump Legal Team

Description

Business Insider reports the Trump campaign has purged attorney Sidney Powell from its legal team. Last week, Powell baselessly alleged a global conspiracy to steal the 2020 US presidential election from President Donald Trump. The conspiracy, Powell claimed, involved hacking voting machines and former Venezuelan leader Hugo Chavez. Chavez, a communist, died in 2013. That dubious claim was then promoted on social media by the Republican Party. On Sunday, the campaign issued a statement asserting that Powell 'is practicing law on her own.' Sidney Powell is practicing 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. Jenna Ellis, legal advisor, and Rudy Giuliani, personal attorney to President Donald Trump

  • Concern Growing Over Bizarre Company Trump Is Keeping In His Final White House Days

    Grave concern is growing among senior White House advisers about the people President Donald Trump has been listening to lately. CNN reports Trump has turned to a fringe group of advisers peddling increasingly dubious tactics to overturn the results of the election. That's generated new levels of uncertainty at how Trump will resist the coming end of his tenure. The coterie includes conspiracist lawyer Sidney Powell, disgraced former national security adviser Michael Flynn, and onetime chief strategist Steve Bannon. Other voices in Trump's ear are those from hawkish trade adviser Peter Navarro and the eccentric founder of the retail website Overstock. Sources close to the President say his advisers are particularly worried about what Powell may convince him to do in the coming days. Through it all, Trump has mostly abandoned the day-to-day running of government.
