(Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trumpís election campaign issued a statement on Sunday distancing itself from Sidney Powell, a lawyer who made baseless allegations of voter fraud at a campaign press conference on Thursday.

ďSidney Powell is practicing law on her own,Ē Trump campaign lawyers Rudy Giuliani and Jenna Ellis said in the statement. ďShe is not a member of the Trump Legal Team. She is also not a lawyer for the President in his personal capacity.Ē

The announcement came one day after a judge dismissed the campaignís lawsuit seeking to halt President-elect Joe Bidenís victory in Pennsylvania, dealing a major blow to Trumpís flailing efforts to overturn his Nov. 3 election loss.

4. Powell is the only American Trump has successfully disenfranchised in the course of 34 lawsuits.

Sidney Powell will no longer have a vote on Trump legal strategy, making her the only American Trump has successfully disenfranchised in the course of 34 lawsuits.

Now let's wait for the next Rudy fiasco.

14. In a General Discussion thread, somebody pointed to this tweet

from a WaPo journalist:




Josh Dawsey
@jdawsey1

Trump told allies that Sidney Powell was too much, even for him, after Thursday. He sees the fight as uphill but fleeting and doesnít see her as helpful anymore, per several advisers.


Aside from that, in all the court cases so far, Trump's "legal team" has shied away from making allegations of fraud in court, presumably for fear of perjury.

Powell's scattergun rantings outside court have been potentially actionable for slander against various public figures, and it sounded like she was winding up to go even more full bore this coming week.

She may also be a handy scapegoat for their repeated failures.

15. That's rich: Rudy disassociates himself and Trump's team from Sidney? Oh, my! It's like.....

...nearly impossible that she is crazier than Rudy!

Ya' know when I heard that Rudy would head up Trump's legal team, it made sense as to why all the big name, big shot Republican leaning law firms withdrew. The stain they knew he would leave would be far bigger and longer lasting than his hair dye fiasco!

17. Update: Statement from Powell

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

20. Jenna ellis is just as bat shit crazy....

Just that she didnít open her gatling-gun pie hole at the latest clown show.

Saw jenna wacko-bird on Real Time, with Bill Maher, last week...and she is NUTS! I mean, ALL these Qanon cult members are nuts, but some are scary nuts...and ellis is one of them. Like all these reich wing Nazi whores, kelly anne conway, shs, this latest nightmare, mcenany...they rattle off complete fabricated garbage so fast, the host has ZERO chance to call them on one of a dozen lies they spew in any given minute.

These are some scary witches. I think Iím in favor ....oh, never mind. Donít want to bring the loony monitors out of the woodwork😈

31. That's your opinion.

Personally I appreciate him and his show. I also watch some CNN and fox/Putin. I like to hear what everyone, regardless of points of view, are being exposed to.

I agree with most of Maher's points of view. He has on several guest that I deplore, but he challenges their nonsense. This rabid wingnut was pretty well exposed as a dingbat.

I don't turn him off, because I enjoy his program. You obviously don't, so don't watch him.

25. Could not help myself. Had to peek into the site we do not mention.

They are losing what little of their collective mind they have left. Although reading anything on that dinosaur site that must be run on Winders 94 is as painful as reading their pathetic theories.

Itís almost 100% Q nuts there now.
