Meanwhile, Powell had peddled baseless theories about an alleged conspiracy surrounding the use of Dominion Voting Systems in Georgia—an alleged conspiracy that she claimed at least two Republican officials were involved in.

"[Powell] is not a member of the Trump Legal Team," the pair said in the statement. "She is also not a lawyer for the president in his personal capacity."

Speaking to Newsmax earlier in the day, Powell claimed that the Republican Governor Brian Kemp of Georgia and his Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger had been paid to be involved in a baseless conspiracy surrounding the Dominion Voting Systems.
