Attorney Sidney Powell responded to the Trump campaign’s recent statement distancing her from their legal team, noting she got the message. 

Trump campaign attorney Rudy Giuliani and senior legal adviser Jenna Ellis announced on Sunday that Powell is “practicing law on her own.”

“She is not a member of the Trump Legal Team. She is also not a lawyer for the President in his personal capacity,” they added.

Powell said her fight will go on anyway, repeating her allegations about the voting systems, which has been disputed.

“I understand today's press release. I will continue to represent #WeThePeople who had their votes for Trump and other Republicans stolen by massive fraud through Dominion and Smartmatic, and we will be filing suit soon,” she said. “The chips will fall where they may, and we will defend the foundations of this great Republic.”

She closed her statement with the hashtag, KrakenOnSteroids. 

The statement from the Trump campaign came after Powell was at a Republican National Committee press conference last week, where she alleged massive voter fraud through vote switching.

“President Trump won by a landslide. We are going to prove it and we are going to reclaim the United States of America for the people who vote for freedom,” she said at the time.

Members of the media, including Fox News’s Tucker Carlson, had grown increasingly frustrated with Powell for refusing to provide evidence of her claims, despite repeated requests. Powell, in turn, said Carlson was "insulting, demanding, and rude."

While some have pointed out that evidence ought to be presented to a court, and that media “are not entitled to see the evidence,” other Trump campaign attorneys reportedly hadn’t seen it either, according to Carlson.

“So we invited Sidney Powell on this show. We would’ve given her the whole hour; we would’ve given her the entire week actually and listened quietly the whole time at rapt attention — that’s a big story,” Carlson explained. “But she never sent us any evidence despite a lot of requests, polite requests, not a page. When we kept pressing, she got angry and told us to stop contacting her. When we checked with others around the Trump campaign, people in positions of authority, they told us Powell has never given them any evidence either, nor did she provided any today at the press conference.”

Update: Powell later released a longer statement saying she plans to file a lawsuit this week that "will be epic."

I agree with the campaign’s statement that I am not part of the campaign’s legal team. I never signed a retainer agreement or sent the President or the campaign a bill for my expenses or fees.

My intent has always been to expose all the fraud I could find and let the chips fall where they may–whether it be upon Republicans or Democrats.

The evidence I’m compiling is overwhelming that this software tool was used to shift millions of votes from President Trump and other Republican candidates to Biden and other Democrat candidates. We are proceeding to prepare our lawsuit and plan to file it this week. It will be epic.

We will not allow this great Republic to be stolen by communists from without and within or our votes altered or manipulated by foreign actors in Hong Kong, Iran, Venezuela, or Serbia, for example, who have neither regard for human life nor the people who are the engine of this exceptional country.

#WeThePeople elected Donald Trump and other Republican candidates to restore the vision of America as a place of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
