Charlotte, NC — The Trump campaign put out an impromptu statement essentially disowning attorney Sidney Powell last night as her claims about German servers and millions of votes being switched via payments.
Reports show that President Trump got fed up with Powell refusing to even provide his own lawyers the evidence she claims to possess.

It doesn’t take a genius to see that the Trump campaign is trying to thread the needle with its election challenges. Compounding this difficult challenge, Powell’s recent assertions have been quite outlandish. The feeling the past few days regarding her claims have felt far-fetched. Additionally, she has grown increasingly belligerent by continuously refusing to give the President a heads up about the information she says she has. Has she even met Donald Trump? This guy doesn’t mess around! The breaking point appeared to be a Newsmax interview in which she claimed Senator Kelly Loeffler (R-GA) was in on the conspiracy. Putting the GOP Senate at risk may have been a bridge too far.
Regardless, Powell responded in two separate statements, and it shouldn’t give anyone much confidence. This per The Daily Wire.
I understand today’s press release. I will continue to represent #WeThePeople who had their votes for Trump and other Republicans stolen by massive fraud through Dominion and Smartmatic, and we will be filing suit soon. The chips will fall where they may, and we will defend the foundations of this great Republic. #KrakenOnSteroids
Here’s the problem. You can’t represent “WeThePeople” and succeed here. Lin Wood is a well-respected conservative lawyer who famously made former client Nick Sandmann the highest-paid employee at CNN as they settled his defamation suit against the Kentucky teenager last year. That said, Lin Wood’s most recent litigation has tried this already and was found to not having standing. No judge is going to let Sidney Powell make it to court because the rules on this stuff are long-standing and can only be changed on appeal. I’ll let you calculate the odds of that happening.
As RedState’s Bonchie articulates, “In other words, a lawyer needs a client. In this case, that client needs to be the candidate who was wronged, i.e., Donald Trump. If the Trump campaign is saying they have no association, that’s basically it.”
Later, Powell issued a much longer statement in which she asked for donations and blathered on in her accusations.
Her statement reads in part:
“I agree with the campaign’s statement that I am not part of the campaign’s legal team. I never signed a retainer agreement or sent the President or the campaign a bill for my expenses or fees.
My intent has always been to expose all the fraud I could find and let the chips fall where they may–whether it be upon Republicans or Democrats.
The evidence I’m compiling is overwhelming that this software tool was used to shift millions of votes from President Trump and other Republican candidates to Biden and other Democrat candidates. We are proceeding to prepare our lawsuit and plan to file it this week. It will be epic.
We will not allow this great Republic to be stolen by communists from without and within or our votes altered or manipulated by foreign actors in Hong Kong, Iran, Venezuela, or Serbia, for example, who have neither regard for human life nor the people who are the engine of this exceptional country.
#WeThePeople elected Donald Trump and other Republican candidates to restore the vision of America as a place of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”
If these claims weren’t enough for the President to keep going with, I suspect most of his supporters; this author included, are not going to continue venturing down this road. Sidney Powel claims to have had this evidence for almost two weeks!
Yet, as the calendar steams ahead toward December 14th, the day the electors of each state vote and election results are then certified, she still isn’t ready to file these motions?! When you claim you’re going to “Release the Kraken!” and continue to make further promises of how “epic” it’s going to be while refusing to even show the President himself the evidence?
Forgive me for being skeptical to the point of thinking this is actually hurting President Trump’s more legitimate, fleshed out cases. No wonder he’s pulling the plug on his association with her. Powell may truly believe what she is saying, but the hashtags and donation soliciting while continuing to string this out do not paint a picture of confidence.
I guess we will find out soon enough, right?
