    Attorney Sidney Powell, a member of former President Donald Trump's legal team after the 2020 election, pled guilty on Thursday to reduced criminal charges the day before her trial was set to begin in Fulton County's sprawling racketeering case involving alleged efforts to overturn the results of the presidential election in Georgia.

    Powell pled guilty to reduced charges, a total of six misdemeanor counts of Conspiracy to Commit Intentional Interference with Performance of Election Duties. She will now have to serve six years of probation, pay a $6,000 fine, pay $2,700 in restitution to the state, and write an apology to the citizens of the state. She also agreed to testify against any of the other 17 remaining defendants in the case moving forward, which includes Trump.

    Fulton County Judge Scott McAfee asked Powell in court on Thursday morning: "Are you pleading guilty today because you agree that there is a sufficient factual basis, that there are enough facts, that support this plea of guilty?"

    She responded: "I do."

    Powell's punishment is dramatically less than if she had been convicted of the multiple felony charges that she faced in the initial indictment, which included two counts of Conspiracy to Commit Election Fraud, Violation of the Georgia RICO Act, Conspiracy to Commit Computer Theft, Conspiracy to Commit Computer Trespass, Conspiracy to Commit Computer Invasion of Privacy, and Conspiracy to Defraud the State.

    The plea deal means that a former member of Trump's legal team is now cooperating with prosecutors as they go after Trump and former Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani - both of whom were hit with 13 felony counts stemming from their alleged efforts to overturn the election results in the state.

    Powell was one of the most aggressive promoters of claims that the election was stolen from Trump. Trump even reportedly had a hard time believing some of her voter fraud allegations, and she was later dismissed from Trump's legal team.

In light of continued developments, primarily since 2008, there exists in these United States a Legal System which operates on a proved Two Tiered approach to justice rendered, which primarily benefits Democratic Elites and Woke Ideological Virtue Signalers, representing their co-dependent wards, to the expressed exclusion of normal hardworking American citizens: What is your suggestion in remedying this widespread injustice and, if not corrected, its existential outcome for our Constitutional Republic?
  Complete overhaul of the Department of Justice and their enforcers - the FBI - to reflect a far more honest justice system to keep patriots remaining calm.
  Disband the FBI, and request that congress investigate all unethical and non patriotic practices to partially right the wrongs of a distrusted and politically weaponized "Department of Justice."
  Continue with the current system since the two tiered justice system has been so remarkably beneficial to Democratic Socialist political hegemony; chronic distrust in institutions notwithstanding.
