The legal team of President Trump has distanced themselves from Sidney Powell. Giuliani And Jenna Ellis issued a statement distancing the Trump campaign's legal efforts from Sidney Powell, who has spun outlandish tales of election fraud to news organizations.
She was front and center at a press conference with Rudy Giuliani, the president’s personal lawyer, and Jenna Ellis, Trump campaign legal adviser.
Even Trump acknowledged her as part of his legal team a couple of days back via a tweet:
I look forward to Mayor Giuliani spearheading the legal effort to defend OUR RIGHT to FREE and FAIR ELECTIONS! Rudy Giuliani, Joseph diGenova, Victoria Toensing, Sidney Powell, and Jenna Ellis, a truly great team, added to our other wonderful lawyers and representatives!

Washington Examiner is reporting that reason for camping to distance themselves from Sidney Powell is, "Neither the White House nor the Trump campaign has seen any of the evidence she claims to have related to assertions about voting machines switching millions of votes from President Trump to President-elect Joe Biden. They argued that her claims overshadowed what they see as legitimate concerns about the mail-in ballot process."
Here is the statement from the campaign legal team:
"Sidney Powell is practicing law on her own. She is not a member of the Trump Legal Team. She is also not a lawyer for the President in his personal capacity."
