Kenneth Chesebro’s Guilty Plea In Georgia Election Subversion Lawsuit
Kenneth Chesebro, an attorney involved in the Trump campaign’s 2020 fake electors scheme, has pleaded guilty in the Georgia election subversion case. This plea deal is a setback for former President Donald Trump and a significant win for Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis, who had charged Trump and 18 others in their attempt to overturn the 2020 presidential election. Notably, this development follows former Trump campaign lawyer Sidney Powell’s guilty plea and her agreement to cooperate with prosecutors.
Chesebro’s guilty plea pertains to one felony charge, specifically, conspiracy to commit the filing of false documents. Prosecutors from Fulton County recommended a sentence of 5 years of probation and a $5,000 restitution, a sentence that was imposed by Fulton County Superior Court Judge Scott McAfee at the hearing. Chesebro has also committed to testifying in forthcoming court proceedings.
In his plea deal, Chesebro acknowledged his involvement in a conspiracy to present false GOP electors in Georgia, in collaboration with Trump, as well as former Trump lawyers Rudy Giuliani and John Eastman. Both Giuliani and Eastman have pleaded not guilty in the Georgia case, and now face the potential of Chesebro testifying against them.
This plea came shortly after the commencement of jury selection in the trial, which was relatively brief. Sources familiar with the discussions suggest that the likelihood of Chesebro accepting the deal increased after Sidney Powell unexpectedly pleaded guilty the day before.
