    Nov 22 (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump's election campaign on Sunday issued a statement distancing itself from Sidney Powell, a lawyer who made baseless allegations of voter fraud at a campaign press conference on Thursday.

    "Sidney Powell is practicing law on her own," Trump campaign lawyers Rudy Giuliani and Jenna Ellis said in the statement. "She is not a member of the Trump Legal Team. She is also not a lawyer for the President in his personal capacity." (Reporting by Jan Wolfe Editing by Paul Simao)
