The lawyer, Sidney Powell, pleaded guilty to six counts of conspiracy to commit electioneering and agreed to testify against Trump
A former lawyer for Donald Trump pleaded guilty today to six counts of conspiracy to help the former US president’s efforts to reverse his electoral defeat in the state of Georgia.
Attorney, Sidney Powell, pleaded guilty to six counts of conspiracy to intentionally interfere with election duties and agreed to testify against Trump and other co-defendants in the case if subpoenaed.
Trump, the front-runner for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination, has pleaded not guilty to a sweeping Fulton County, Georgia, indictment of violating Georgia’s Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations, or RICO, law in his efforts to overturn the loss of the Democratic president Joe Biden.
Powell admitted to conspiring to illegally access voting machine security in rural Coffey County in southeast Georgia in January 2021. The settlement calls for six years of probation.
Powell represented Trump after the 2020 presidential election and helped spread his false claims that the election was marred by widespread voter fraud.
