Sidney Powell, who along with Rudy Giuliani made wild claims of fraud in the 2020 presidential election, has pleaded guilty to six misdemeanor charges she was facing in the Georgia election interference case.
Powell is among the 18 defendants, led by former President Donald Trump, who were charged in an alleged scheme to overturn the state’s election results. Powell was a legal adviser to Trump.
In the weeks after the 2020 vote, Powell and Giuliani appeared multiple times on Fox News and other outlets to make claims that the election was stolen. They also presided over an infamous press conference in November, and in a guest spot with then-Fox News host Lou Dobbs, Powell used the term “release the Kraken,” or that she would produce evidence of widespread voter fraud. She did not.
