Rudy explains distancing from Sidney Powell

Daily Wire“I think it’s because we’re pursuing two different theories,” Giuliani answered. “Our theory of the case to get to the Supreme Court … is, basically, misconduct of the election by state officials in at least five or six different states, in which the misconduct of the election involved deprivation of Constitutional rights for the president.”

Two different theories is accurate enough, but it doesn't reduce the sting much compared to explanations based around campaign financing.

I think Rudy wants to stick to theories he has solid evidence for. He recognizes Powell has what sounds like a wild and crazy conspiracy theory. Maybe she has evidence for it, maybe not -- but if not, best his own more grounded cases not be considered guilty by association.

I consider this quite reasonable. Powell has had excellent sources in the intel community in the past and remains closely associated with Flynn, who also does. She may be on to something. But without solid evidence to present, which may be complicated by law enforcement activity and classification issues, it may be difficult to prove on the very compressed timeline we're on now.

Of course, there's another possible explanation:

Everything was fine between Sidney and the Trump legal team until, a few days after the joint press conference, she gave an interview on Newsmax where she claimed that the governor of Georgia and the secretary of state (both Republicans, by the way) had conspired and received bribes to install the Dominion voting system in their state. I can assume there were a few phone calls to the White House from individuals angry at the allegation.

I don't imagine that helped.
