Donald Trump's legal battle over the 2020 elections has been terrible. And with such a lack of success, the president would hope that his legal advisers are at least on the same page.
However, this is not the case at all. Rudy Giuliani, a longtime friend of Trump, appears to have the president's ear more than any of his other lawyers. But Sidney Powell, who left the legal team weeks ago, was still invited to a weekend summit at the White House.
And Powell and Giuliani don't seem to get along at all. In fact, Giuliani Powell hit it during an appearance on Sean Spicer's Newsmax show on Monday.
The former New York mayor told the host: "Let me definitely say that Sidney Powell is not part of our legal team, she hasn't been here for 5 weeks. She is not a special advisor to the president, she speaks neither for the president nor for the administration. She speaks for herself. She's a good woman, a good lawyer. Whatever she's talking is her own opinion. I'm not responsible, the President isn't, and no one else on our legal team. ”

Later in the interview, Giuliani outlined how his strategy would differ from Powell's. "We will be extremely aggressive and fight as hard as possible for our customer, ”he continued. "But we will also get involved within the framework of rationality, common sense and the law." And it can be done. There is no reason to go beyond anything. "
