BREAKING: Confusion as Trump campaign says Sidney Powell is “not a member of the Trump Legal Team”

Moments ago, Trump lawyer Jenna Ellis released the following statement suggesting Sidney Powell is “practicing law on her own” and “not a member of the Trump Legal Team.”

Just days ago, President Trump tweeted this.

The statement has led to confusion and speculation.

Jake Tapper tweeted “This attempt by Trump’s legal team — Giuliani, Ellis — to distance themselves from Sidney Powell’s insane conspiracy theories is going to be super awkward next time — oh, I dont know — say, Trump Giuiliani, or Ellis — tweet about the very same insane conspiracy theories.”

Here is some of the other reaction and reporting on this.
