The Facts Inside Our Reporter’s Notebook
Rudy Giuliani, the lead attorney for President Trump's election challenges, and Trump Campaign Senior Legal Adviser Jenna Ellis said Sunday that high-profile attorney Sidney Powell does not work for the president personally or for his campaign.
“Sidney Powell is practicing law on her own," the statement from Giuliani and Ellis said. "She is not a member of the Trump Legal Team. She is also not a lawyer for the President in his personal capacity.”
Powell on Thursday spoke during a press conference where Giuliani and Ellis also spoke.
"I look forward to Mayor Giuliani spearheading the legal effort to defend OUR RIGHT to FREE and FAIR ELECTIONS!" President Trump tweeted on November 14. "Rudy Giuliani, Joseph diGenova, Victoria Toensing, Sidney Powell, and Jenna Ellis, a truly great team, added to our other wonderful lawyers and representatives!"
Powell, who has alleged that massive corruption occurred during the 2020 election, said during an interview on Newsmax that a "biblical" filing is forthcoming regarding the state of Georgia.
"Georgia is extremely bad," Powell said. "We've got ballots being shredded, ballots being thrown out in trash bags...the votes being switched, the algorithms being run: You name the manner of fraud and it occurred in Georgia," she said.
While media outlets have projected Joe Biden to be the winner of the 2020 presidential contest, President Trump has not conceded and has made allegations of election fraud.
The Peach State is "probably gonna be the first state I'm gonna blow up," Powell said, remarking that "Mr. Kemp and the secretary of state need to go with it because they're in on the Dominon scam with their last minute purchase or award of a contract to Dominon of $100 million dollars. The state bureau of investigation for Georgia oughta be looking into the financial benefits received by Mr. Kemp and the secretary of state's family about that time."
During the interview Mark Halperin sought to clarify if Powell was alleging that the Georgia governor "is directly involved because of financial benefit in the conspiracy to defeat the president in Georgia."
"We have certainly been told that there is evidence of that and would warrant an investigation if anybody were actually going to do an honest investigation " Powell said.
