Sidney Powell, once an attorney for Donald Trump, has admitted guilt in conspiring to disrupt election processes in Georgia.
Powell pleaded guilty to “six counts of conspiracy to commit intentional interference with performance of election duties,” consenting to bear witness against Trump and 16 other co-defendants if requested by prosecutors. This development in Georgia is one among four criminal cases targeting Trump, with two centered on his post-election conduct in challenging the results.
Powell’s confession acknowledges her illicit attempts to breach protected election machines in Coffee County, Georgia, in early 2021, with the plea deal proposing a probation term of six years.
The timeline tightened as Powell’s admission emerged days before her impending trial, scheduled for Monday, involving accusations of racketeering and conspiracy connected to election fraud. Trump has declared his innocence against the Fulton County, Georgia indictment that accuses him of violating the state’s RICO act, all related to his bid to nullify the presidential election results.
