WASHINGTON — President-elect Joe Biden will name Antony Blinken, a veteran foreign policy official and longtime confidant, as his secretary of state.

Blinken, who held top-level national security and State Department positions during the Obama administration, has worked side-by-side with Biden on foreign policy issues for nearly two decades.

The 58-year-old Blinken was Biden's staff director on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee for six years, starting in 2002. When Biden became vice president, Blinken became his national security director – before President Barack Obama elevated him to higher positions, including the No. 2 job at the State Department.

Antony Blinken: Biden to name long-time confidant Antony Blinken as secretary of state

Trump campaign disavows attorney Sidney Powell after controversy over conspiracy theories

After a week of media appearances in which she was pressed on her repeated claims of an international conspiracy to rig the presidential election without providing evidence, officials from the Trump campaign distanced themselves from attorney Sidney Powell, who had helped in the campaign’s lawsuits.

"Sidney 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," Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani and Trump campaign attorney Jenna Ellis said in a statement on Sunday.

Though Giuliani said Powell is not a member of the legal team, she recently spoke alongside him at a news conference for the campaign where she alleged several election fraud conspiracies.

President Donald Trump 's re- election campaign is assembling an "all-star" legal team to spearhead legal challenges in battleground states . The report comes hours after the Trump campaign filed lawsuits to halt vote counts in Michigan and Pennsylvania, another key battleground state .

Sidney Powell , one of the most vocal legal voices championing the Trump campaign's allegations of large-scale election fraud, has said she stands by her claims after the president’s legal team seemingly distanced itself from her. “I understand today’s press release. I will continue to represent

President Donald Trump recently included Powell in a tweet listing several attorneys he described as "a truly great team" working with Giuliani in his election lawsuits.

In a series of media appearances, Powell has made numerous unfounded allegations about the presidential election. She has baselessly alleged that "thousands" of poll workers were secretly complicit in a conspiracy against Trump that included the CIA, Venezuela's deceased leftist leader Hugo Chavez, the Chinese government and unspecified forces of international communism. There is no evidence to support any of her claims.

During a NewsMax interview on Saturday, Powell added Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp to her list of conspirators after he said the law required him to certify election results showing Joe Biden won the state. She claimed, without evidence, Kemp had received a payoff from a voting software company prompting former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie to tell ABC News' "This Week" that Powell's behavior was "outrageous conduct by any lawyer."

"The president's legal team has been a national embarrassment," Christie said.
