Written by on October 19, 2023

Former Donald Trump’s lawyer Sidney Powell pleaded guilty Thursday, October 19, in exchange for a reduced sentence in the Georgia election tampering case, one day before the start of jury selection in her trial. Under the deal, Powell will receive six years of probation, fork over a $6,000 fine, pen an apology letter to the people of Georgia, and must deliver testimony in future trials in the case including against the 77-year-old 45th president of the USA, Donald Trump.  Powell, 68, is the second of 19 defendants in the case to plead guilty after bail bondsman Scott Hall admitted last month to five misdemeanor charges. Hall was hit with five years of probation and must also testify in future trials as part of the deal.Fulton County prosecutors slapped Powell with seven counts on August 14 for her alleged efforts to undermine the 2020 Peach State election. They also accused her of scheming to unlawfully access voting equipment in deep-red Coffee County, Georgia, in an attempt to find evidence of fraud. In the aftermath of the 2020 election, Powell became one of Trumps main lawyers in his bid to remain in power infamously vowing to release the Kraken of purported fraud evidence.She also partook in numerous meetings and strategy sessions with Trump allies while they hatched plans to overturn the election, including a mid-December 2020 White House meetings.Trump has pleaded not guilty to 13 counts in response to the Georgia indictment.The former president is facing a grand total of 91 criminal counts spanning four criminal indictments, including the Georgia case.The trial of another co-defendant in the Fulton County indictment, lawyer Kenneth Chesebro, is set to begin Friday with jury selection.Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis began her probe back in early 2021 following a January 2, 2021, call Trump held with Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger in which he emphasized the need to find, uh, 11,780 votes to overturn his loss to Joe Biden in the state.  The post Former Trump lawyer Sidney Powell pleads guilty in Georgia election tampering case, will testify against former president in future trials appeared first on Linda Ikeji Blog.
