Let’s examine the statements. Nothing is ever quite what it seems.

Controversial lawyer and author Sydney Powell has been the most high profile and outspoken member of Trump’s “team” in the fight to prove election fraud. Over the past few days her statements have been littered with Qanon related slogans (such as “Release The Kraken”) raising the ire of the MSM and resulting in the usual “conspiracy theorist” label applied.
During a Newsmax interview, apparently speaking independently, Powell claimed the upcoming case would be “Biblical” in proportions.
And then today? “You’re Fired!” screamed Trump….or did he?
Typical of the MSM hype:
It’s interesting to note the link title above has been altered from: “trump-fires-sidney-powell/” in the original header. MSM getting cautious in hindsight?
An RNZ article presents a more restrained account in which Trump’s team “distances itself” from Powell. While the article is commendable for refraining from Qanon references and Tin Hatter slurs, I think they’ve still missed the mark.
“Sidney Powell is practicing law on her own,” Trump campaign lawyers Rudy Giuliani and Jenna Ellis said in a statement. “She is not a member of the Trump Legal Team.”… Powell had been suspended from Twitter for 12 hours, wrote on the platform that she understood Giuliani’s statement and “agrees with it.”… Powell was “staying the course” to prove election fraud.Trump campaign parts ways with Powell after vote-switching claim | RNZ News
There are subtle clues that indicate there’s more to the picture.
Yes, Powell appeared on stage with Guiliani and co. Yes, Trump referred to her as part of “the team” in a Tweet (see below). But the big question is: Was she ever on the payroll, or has she been an informal and independent “team member”?
Donald J. Trump on Twitter: “I look forward to Mayor Giuliani spearheading the legal effort to defend OUR RIGHT to FREE and FAIR ELECTIONS! Rudy Giuliani, Joseph diGenova, Victoria Toensing, Sidney Powell, and Jenna Ellis, a truly great team, added to our other wonderful lawyers and representatives!” / Twitter
In Powell’s Tweeted response to the news, (via Flynn due to her account ban) she simply said she “understood” and vowed to continue fighting on Trump’s behalf. Now, does that sound like the response of someone who just got “fired”? Don’t they usually go forth and write a trashy book of dirty-laundry revelations under these circumstances? They don’t “understand” and carry on fighting for the cause that’s for sure!
While it’s difficult to discern what’s at play here, it seems that Team Trump is simply clarifying that Sidney Powell is working independently even though she is contributing. Perhaps this independence allows her greater freedom of action? Could this in fact be a diversion, a ploy? Plans within plans….time for another Dune meme:
