The States United Democracy Center and Lawyers Defending American
Democracy (LDAD) have sent a letter to the State Bar of Texas urging the Office of Chief Disciplinary Counsel to seek the disbarment of Sidney Powell through a compulsory discipline proceeding in light of her guilty plea in the Fulton County, GA election interference case. The letter was signed by TK.

“Sidney Powell plotted to gain illegal access to voting equipment in Georgia as part of a broader scheme to undermine confidence in our elections and our democracy. She faced criminal consequences for those actions in Georgia, and now it’s time for her face professional consequences,” said Gillian Feiner, Senior Counsel at the States United Democracy Center.

John Montgomery, an LDAD board member, added, “Attorney Powell took an oath to uphold the Constitution and the rule of law. Her admitted criminal actions violated carefully crafted rules guiding the conduct of those who are privileged to practice law, and she must now be held to account.”

The letter calls for the Board of Disciplinary Appeals to docket the issue by January 2024 and reviews the applicable Texas Rules of Disciplinary Procedure. Those rules require any attorney licensed in Texas who has admitted to an intentional crime, including theft of property, to face disbarment. Last month, Powell pled guilty to Conspiracy to Commit Intentional Interference with Performance of ElectionDuties, relating to her participation in a conspiracy to steal data, including ballot images, voting equipment software, and personal voter information, in Coffee County, Georgia.
