President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, said his legal team broke up with Sidney Powell because “two different theories” about alleged voter fraud were pursued in the Nov. 3 election.
Giuliani, who appeared on the Fox Business website Monday, said his theory focused on alleged “misconduct” by local election officials, which led to an alleged “deprivation” of Trump’s constitutional rights.
Meanwhile, Powell has raised unfounded theories about an alleged conspiracy around the use of Dominion Voting Systems in Georgia – an alleged conspiracy in which he claims at least two Republican officials were involved.
When Fox Business presenter Lou Dobbs asked Giuliani why the Trump re-election team had not severed contact with Powell shortly after the theory was put out on Newsmax TV, the former mayor of New York City said, “I think that is because of two different theories.
“Our theory that we get to the Supreme Court will now be in four places, and soon in two others – and there will be a comprehensive lawsuit – basically electoral abuses by public officials in at least five or six cases in different states where election misconduct by the president is constitutional. deprived him of his rights. “
Newsweek contacted Sidney Powell to comment on them and will update this article with all responses.
President Trump’s re-election campaign severed contact with Powel on Sunday shortly after he made unfounded demands on Newsmax TV. Giuliani and Trump’s legal counsel, Jenna Ellis, said in a joint statement that Powell is exercising the right alone.
“[Powell] he is not a member of the Trump Legal Team, “the couple said in a statement.” In addition, he is not a lawyer to the President in his personal capacity. “
Speaking to Newsmax earlier in the day, Powell claimed that Republican Governor Brian Kemp of Georgia and Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger had been paid to participate in an unfounded conspiracy around Dominion Voting Systems.
He also unfoundedly claimed that Senator Kelly Loeffler would have run behind GOP MP Doug Collins in the Georgia special election if it had not been for the alleged conspiracy of Dominion. Powell did not provide any evidence to substantiate his claims.
President Trump himself on Monday seemed to allow the election of President-elect Joe Biden after the General Services Directorate announced that the Democratic candidate would be given access to key federal resources for the transition.
“Our case continues STRONGLY, we will continue to fight well, and I think we will prevail,” Trump tweeted after the GSA announced the move. “Nevertheless, in the interest of our country, I suggest that Emily and her team do the necessary things regarding the initial protocols and tell my team to do the same.”
