KRAKEN RELEASED: Sidney Powell Booted from Trump Legal Team

The move comes just days after a heated press conference that feature Powell, Rudy Giuliani, and Jenna Ellis.

President Trump’s hopes for remaining in the White House for a second term are diminishing by the day, as a number of key legal arguments have been either exhausted, or they’ve been excoriated by the jurists in front of which they were examined.

Of course, this isn’t the end-all, be-all of the efforts being made to procure that second term; rather, it’s a strategy in which the Trump team moves their fight closer and closer to the Supreme Court by the day.

But with any undertaking this gargantuan, there are bound to be hiccups, and this week revealed just such a blip on the radar.

President Donald Trump appears to have cut ties with Sidney Powell, a key member of his legal team who also represents former national security adviser Michael Flynn in his long-running attempt to unravel a guilty plea for lying about his 2016 contacts with Russia.

The abrupt shake-up came in a terse Sunday-evening statement from the Trump campaign that offered no explanation for Powell’s removal.

“Sidney Powell is practicing law on her own,” Trump’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani and campaign lawyer Jenna Ellis said in the statement. “She is not a member of the Trump Legal Team. She is also not a lawyer for the President in his personal capacity.”

Powell had, just days ago, proclaimed that she would “release the kraken” in regard to alleged voter fraud in this country, seemingly insinuating that a major and undeniable revelation was on the horizon.
