Trump's election legal professionals simply melted down and began attacking one another

Trump's election lawyers are now attacking each other and arguing over who is really on the electoral law team.

After Sidney Powell charged Georgia Governor Brian Kemp of the crime, Rudy Giuliani and Jenna Ellis said Powell was not working on the election challenge.

CNN's Kaitlin Collins tweeted:

“Sidney Powell is a self-employed attorney. She is not a member of the Trump Legal Team. Nor is she an attorney for the President in his personal capacity, ”say Giuliani & Jenna Ellis after Powell accused the GA Governor of the crimes. But even after they appeared at a press shop.

This came after many on the right attacked Tucker Carlson for questioning Powell's allegations, failing to prevent evidence, etc., and Chris Christie labeled their behavior a national embarrassment. Both show POTUS watches. https://t.co/HBVQvCogW3

Trump's entire legal challenge has become a national mockery. Giuliani and Ellis turned down Powell after she appeared with them at a press conference on Friday.

Sidney Powell accused Bernie Sanders and Brian Kemp of conspiring in a cover-up to steal Donald Trump's election. Powell advanced the Trump-revered conspiracy theory of the exposed Dominion voting machines. Trump's legal team lost nearly three dozen challenges to the election and now they're attacking each other.

It's time to wrap up this circus and send it home. Before election day, people feared Trump would seriously question the results and plunge the nation into constitutional crisis. Instead, Trump has put together a legal defense that looks exactly like his delusional and failed presidency.

Incompetence defined Trump's presidency, and it is the hallmark of his efforts to challenge Joe Biden's election.
