Trump Denies Sidney Powell Was His Lawyer After She Takes Plea Deal

Former President Donald Trump has denied that attorney Sidney Powell was ever his lawyer after she accepted a plea deal in Fulton County, Georgia. Powell pleaded guilty to criminal charges related to her involvement in helping Trump attempt to overturn the 2020 election results.

In a post on his social media site, Trump acknowledged Powell’s belief that the election was rigged but stated that she was never his attorney. Trump pointed out that Powell had represented General Michael Flynn, who pleaded guilty to lying about his contacts in Russia but was later pardoned by Trump.

This is not the first time Trump has distanced himself from Powell, as his campaign previously stated that she was not part of their legal team.

Powell’s involvement in promoting baseless claims of election fraud and filing failed lawsuits in multiple battleground states gained her attention in 2020. She is still facing defamation suits from Dominion Voting Systems and Smartmatic.

As part of her plea deal, Powell agreed to six years of probation, a fine, restitution, and cooperation in the trials of her co-defendants, potentially including Trump himself. The impact of Trump’s denial on any potential attorney-client privilege between him and Powell remains uncertain.
