Powell is also required to testify “truthfully against any and all co-defendants in this matter,” McAfee said.
Powell was among the conservative lawyers who pushed baseless claims of widespread fraud in the 2020 election, endorsing outlandish theories of foreign interference and ballot manipulation to try to reverse the results. She participated in a contentious meeting at the White House in December 2020, during which White House lawyers confronted her and lawyer Rudy Giuliani about their election claims.
She and 18 others, including Trump, were charged by a grand jury in Fulton County in August. Powell initially faced seven charges and pleaded not guilty. Prosecutors agreed to dismiss the charges in theas part of the plea deal.
The guilty plea comes shortly before Powell and Kenneth Chesebro, another co-defendant, were set to go on trial. Chesebro has pleaded not guilty, and jury selection for his trial will begin as scheduled on Friday. An attorney for Chesebro declined to comment on Powell’s plea.
