Several Trump co-defendants in the Fulton County, Ga., election case wrote one sentence apology letters as part of their guilty pleas.
The terse, handwritten letters by Sidney Powell and Ken Chesebro, both former Trump-allied lawyers, were obtained by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution through an open records request.
The letters were sealed at first, then stuck in a court bottleneck, according to the AJC.
Powell was briefly an attorney for Trump’s 2020 presidential campaign.
Chesebro was indicted for plot to introduce slates of alternate pro-Trump electors.
Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis told the AJC that she required the letters because “there needs to be real contrition.”
Sidney Powell wrote:
“I apologize for my actions in connection with the events in Coffee County.”
