Breaking: U.S. Marshals ARREST Pro-Trump Lawyer

The Associated Press reported that an attorney who is currently facing criminal charges for unlawfully accessing Michigan voting machines after the 2020 election was apprehended on Monday in Washington, D.C. This occurred after a hearing in a separate case where potential sanctions were being discussed regarding the attorney’s disclosure of private emails from Dominion Voting Systems.

U.S. Marshals detained the attorney, Stefanie Lambert, who had obtained the Dominion emails while representing Patrick Byrne, a prominent supporter of election theories. Lambert now faces four felony charges for accessing voting machines in search of evidence supporting a theory against former President Donald Trump. It is worth noting that Lambert had previously filed an unsuccessful lawsuit attempting to overturn Trump’s defeat in Michigan.

Earlier on Monday, Lambert admitted to sharing records from Dominion Voting Systems with law enforcement, and she attached an affidavit signed by Dar Leaf, a county sheriff in southwestern Michigan who has investigated claims of election fraud.

According to the report, the remaining documents were uploaded to an account under Leaf’s name on the X platform. In the meantime, the U.S. Supreme Court has made a ruling stating that Peter Navarro, a former adviser to then-President Donald Trump, must begin his prison sentence despite his ongoing appeal for contempt of Congress conviction. USA Today has reported that the Federal Bureau of Prisons has scheduled Navarro to report by 2 p.m. Tuesday in Miami, unless the Supreme Court intervenes.

Navarro has been sentenced to four months behind bars. Chief Justice John Roberts has stated that he found no grounds to oppose the appeals court ruling, emphasizing that this decision is separate from the ruling on the appeal itself. Navarro was convicted in federal court in September for refusing to provide testimony and documents to the January 6 Committee. He argued that he couldn’t cooperate due to executive privilege, but the court determined that there was no evidence to support his claim. Last week, the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that Navarro had forfeited his opportunity to assert an executive privilege argument and is unlikely to succeed in his appeal.

Navarro argued for his release during the appeal process, asserting that he poses no flight risk and does not pose a threat to public safety. He also emphasized that his appeal raises significant issues, such as the interpretation of executive privilege, which could potentially overturn his conviction.

The committee investigating the events of January 6th wanted to interview Navarro because of his account in his book “In Trump Time,” where he outlined a plan to delay the certification of President Joe Biden’s election. Navarro referred to this plan as the “Green Bay Sweep” and described it as the last opportunity to prevent what he believed was a fraudulent election. According to the committee, Navarro later stated in an interview that Trump was supportive of this strategy.
