A few days after a sensational press conference on alleged electoral fraud, US President Donald ended his collaboration with lawyer Sidney Powell. In the past few weeks she had spread crude conspiracy theories over and over again.

Powell’s thesis was that the Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez, who died in 2013, had the software used to count the votes manipulated. Votes cast for Biden were worth 1.25 times and some votes for Trump were automatically converted into votes for his opponent. She did not provide any evidence to support her claims. You are refuted.

Powell also said senior Republicans in Georgia – the local governor and a minister – were bribed as part of electoral fraud, she told Newsmax. In Georgia, Biden had won the election with a wafer-thin majority of 14,000 votes. The Republicans traditionally rule the state – they sometimes doubt the result.

However, it seems unclear under Trump and his “personal bulldog” Giuliani whether Powell was part of the official legal team at all. Together with Jenna Ellis, who gives legal advice to Trump’s campaign team, Giuliani published a statement on Sunday evening in which it says: “Sidney Powell practices as a freelance lawyer. She is not a member of the Trump legal team. Nor is she a private lawyer for the President. “

Before her appearance with Giuliani and Ellis, where Powell voiced her theories about communist influence, she was introduced as a member of the “Elite Strike Force” of the legal team.

Powell’s conspiracy theories were partly cheered, but partly met with great misunderstanding even among Trump allies. Chris Christie, former Republican governor of New Jersey, told ABC that the legal team led by Giuliani had become a national “embarrassment.”

Most of the other presidential attorneys are more reluctant to publicly raise allegations of election fraud than Powell was. Although they agree in principle with Trump that he can exhaust legal possibilities to have any irregularities checked – they refrain from direct allegations of falsification or accusations of the democratic camp.

Legal efforts to challenge the election results in Pennsylvania ended in a bitter defeat for the Republicans on Saturday evening. They also lost in almost all key states such as Michigan, Georgia, Nevada, Arizona and Wisconsin in their attempts to overturn the election results there in favor of Biden. In Pennsylvania, however, they do not want to give up: Trump’s campaign team applied to an appeals court there to declare the entire vote unconstitutional.

However, as a result of the failed attempts, more and more Republicans signaled a desire to recognize the results of individual states and the election as a whole – and Trump as the loser. He has still not admitted his defeat in the presidential election on November 3rd.

Giuliani officially acts as the personal lawyer for the current president, but also plays a key role in Trump’s political actions. Giuliani’s daughter had called her father his “personal bulldog”. Caroline Rose Giuliani had spoken out before the US election in early November and warned against a second term for Trump. As a president who has meanwhile been voted out, he has now put his “fighting dog” on the election results. His team tries to take legal steps to portray the victory of the Democrat Biden as wrong. “I know about crimes, I can smell them,” Giuliani said at last.

The 76-year-old caused a laugh when a hair dye ran down his cheeks at the press conference at which the alleged leftist machinations were explained:
