Attorney Arrested for Leaking DOMINION Documents After DC Hearing

MAGA attorney arrested after hearing in DC over leaking DOMINION documents…

An attorney who faces criminal charges for unlawfully accessing Michigan voting machines post the 2020 election found herself in handcuffs on Monday following a hearing in a separate case at the federal court in Washington, D.C.

Stefanie Lambert was taken into custody by U.S. Marshals after a hearing regarding potential sanctions against her for the dissemination of confidential emails from Dominion Voting Systems, a company embroiled in conspiracy theories surrounding former President Donald Trump’s loss in the 2020 election.

Lambert acquired these Dominion emails while representing Patrick Byrne, a notable supporter of election conspiracy theories who is currently being sued by Dominion for defamation.

The Marshals office released a statement confirming Lambert’s arrest on “local charges.” This followed a bench warrant issued by a Michigan judge earlier this month when Lambert failed to appear for a hearing in her case.

She stands accused of four felonies related to accessing voting machines in an attempt to uncover evidence supporting a conspiracy theory favoring Trump. Lambert had previously filed an unsuccessful lawsuit seeking to overturn Trump’s loss in Michigan.

Prior to her arrest, Lambert publicly acknowledged providing Dominion Voting Systems records to “law enforcement.” She appended an affidavit containing some of the leaked emails, signed by Dar Leaf, a county sheriff in southwestern Michigan known for investigating false claims of widespread election fraud, to a filing in her own Michigan case. The remaining documents were posted on a social media platform under Leaf’s name.

Leaf did not respond to requests for comment, and Lambert’s attorney, Daniel Hartman, remained silent on the matter.

Byrne, in a text message, expressed uncertainty about Lambert’s arrest but voiced respect for her actions. Lambert argued that the Dominion documents obtained through discovery constituted evidence of “crimes” and, therefore, needed to be disclosed.

In a statement on social media, Byrne defended Lambert’s actions, stating that despite signing a non-disclosure agreement, Lambert had an obligation to report evidence of ongoing crime to law enforcement.

Dominion reacted swiftly, filing a motion demanding Lambert’s removal from the Byrne case, citing a violation of a protective order issued by U.S. District Court Judge Moxila A. Upadhyaya. The company emphasized that Lambert’s disclosure had reignited threats against its employees, lamenting the blatant disregard for court orders and employee safety.

During a subsequent hearing, Judge Upadhyaya indicated intentions to deliberate on potential sanctions against Lambert or her removal from the case.

Dominion has pursued several defamation lawsuits against individuals who propagated conspiracy theories alleging its election equipment played a role in Trump’s defeat in 2020. Notably, Fox News settled a prominent case filed by Dominion for $787 million last year.

Dominion’s legal action against Byrne is part of its broader effort to hold prominent election deniers accountable, including figures like MyPillow founder Mike Lindell and attorney Sidney Powell.
