Sidney Powell took a plea deal in her case in Georgia.

Reuters reported:

A former lawyer for Donald Trump on Thursday pleaded guilty to six counts of conspiracy for aiding the former U.S. president’s efforts to overturn his election defeat in the state of Georgia, a live court proceeding showed.

The lawyer, Sidney Powell, pleaded guilty to six counts of conspiracy to commit intentional interference with performance of election duties and agreed to testify against Trump and other co-defendants in the case if called upon.

Trump, the frontrunner for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination, has pleaded not guilty to a sweeping Fulton County, Georgia, indictment charging him with violating Georgia’s Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations, or RICO, act in its efforts to overturn his loss to Democratic President Joe Biden.

Powell admitted to plotting to unlawfully access secure election machines in rural Coffee County in southeastern Georgia in January 2021. The plea agreement calls for her to be sentenced to six years of probation.

Trump’s lead attorney in the case said he views this as a good thing for Donald Trump.

Conservative Brief reported:

Georgia lawyer Steve Sadow, Trump’s lead attorney, told The Messenger in an email that he sees Powell’s plea bargain as a legal gift to his client.

“Assuming truthful testimony in the Fulton County case, it will be favorable to my overall defense strategy,” he said.

Trump responded to the news in a Truth Social post.

Truth Social:

Sidney Powell was one of millions and millions of people who thought, and in ever increasing numbers still think, correctly, that the 2020 Presidential Election was RIGGED & STOLLEN, AND OUR COUNTRY IS BEING ABSOLUTELY DESTROYED BECAUSE OF IT!!! Despite the Fake News reports to the contrary, and without even reaching out to ask the Trump Campaign, MS. POWELL WAS NOT MY ATTORNEY, AND NEVER WAS. In fact, she would have been conflicted. Ms. Powell did a valiant job of representing a very unfairly treated and governmentally abused General Mike Flynn, but to no avail. His prosecution, despite the facts, was ruthless. He was an innocent man, much like many other innocent people who are being persecuted by this now Fascist government of ours, and I was honored to give him a Full Pardon!
