Attorney Sidney Powell released a statement late on Sunday after the Trump legal team announced that she was not part of their legal defense team.
“I understand today’s press release,” Powell wrote. “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,” she continued. “#KrakenOnSteroids”
Powell’s statement came shortly after the Trump legal team announced that she was not on the team.
“Sidney Powell is practicing law on her own,” Trump’s legal team said in a statement. “She is not a member of the Trump Legal Team. She is also not a lawyer for the President in his personal capacity.”
The move comes after Powell spoke at a press conference last week with Rudy Giuliani and Jenna Ellis.
At the press conference, she stood behind Giuliani as he said:
This is representative of our legal team. We’re representing President Trump and we’re representing the Trump campaign. When I finish, Sidney Powell and then Jenna Ellis will follow me. And we will present, in brief, the evidence that we’ve collected over the last, I guess it is two weeks. Also, Joseph diGenova, Victoria Toensing are here with me. There are a lot more lawyers working on this, but I guess we’re the senior lawyers — and Boris Epshteyn.
Powell’s remarks were also promoted by the Republican National Committee’s official Twitter account.
Powell made additional claims on Saturday night during an interview on Newsmax TV that were widely criticized.
