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

Wochit Postables
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
