Depending on who you ask, President Trump’s hopes of remaining in the White House after January 20th are either slim to none or beyond doubt.
If perhaps, you find yourself standing in a room with members of President Trump’s legal team, it would be the latter. The group has maintained their belief that Donald Trump will undoubtedly remain in office for a second term and they’ve made some bold claims supporting their prediction.
However, recent results have not given them what they were hoping for in the courts and their next move is to distance themselves from one of their more prominent members.
President Donald Trump appears to have cut ties with Sidney Powell, a key member of his legal team who also represents former national security adviser Michael Flynn in his long-running attempt to unravel a guilty plea for lying about his 2016 contacts with Russia.
The abrupt shake-up came in a terse Sunday-evening statement from the Trump campaign that offered no explanation for Powell’s removal.
“Sidney Powell is practicing law on her own,” Trump’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani and campaign lawyer Jenna Ellis said in the statement. “She is not a member of the Trump Legal Team. She is also not a lawyer for the President in his personal capacity.”
Recently Powell was involved in a confrontation with Tucker Carlson after he invited the attorney onto his show to discuss the “evidence” she had gathered. Powell refused the invitation, claiming to be too busy to be caught up in the infotainment media circus.
