A second Trump attorney has pleaded guilty in the Georgia election interference case brought by District Attorney Fani Willis.

On Friday, Kenneth Chesebro agreed to testify truthfully in any future case proceedings and write a letter of apology to Georgia citizens.

According to reports from The Hill, Fulton County prosecutor Daysha Young told the court that if the case had gone to trial, the state would have shown that Chesebro — along with Trump, Rudy Giuliani and other co-defendants — entered a criminal conspiracy to cause other co-conspirators to “falsely hold themselves out as the duly elected and qualified electors for the president and vice president from Georgia following the Nov. 3, 2020, presidential election.” 

Young also said that Chesebro was present at the Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, when an inflamed pro-Trump mob stormed the building while the certification of the presidential election was underway. 

“Are you pleading guilty because you agree that there’s a factual basis that supports this remaining charge?” McAfee asked Chesebro. 

“Yes, this charge,” Chesebro replied. 

McAfee accepted the agreement. 

Chesebro was also sentenced to five years of probation, 100 hours of community service and ordered to pay $5,000 in restitution.

He was originally charged with seven felony counts linked to the alternate electors scheme, for which he drafted multiple memos detailing strategies for how slates of pro-Trump individuals could falsely claim to be their states’ valid electors.  However, Under the plea agreement, Chesebro will only be charged with one of those counts, conspiracy to commit filing false documents. 

Chesebro’s guilty plea comes a day after Sidney Powell also pleaded guilty. (RELATED: Sidney Powell Pleads Guilty In Georgia Election Interference Case)

  1. WOW!! IF THEY WERE SO INVOLVED IN TRYING TO FIND THE TRUTH OUT IN THE BEGINNING AND LITERALLY PUTTING THIER LIFE ON HOLD TO FIGHT THE INJUSTICE OF THE 2020 ELECTION….DID THEY FLIP BECAUSE THERE WERE PROMISED BIG BUCKS? CONSTITUTIONALLY, THIS WOULD BE CALLED PERJURY!! THEY FLIPPED FOR EITHER MONEY OR SOMEONE FOUND DIRT ON THEM. MY BET, MY INTUITION SAYS IT WAS THE OLE MIGHTY DOLLAR!! I HOPE THEY ARE FOUND GUILTY OF PERJURY AND TRUMP GETS TO WATCH THEM ROT IN JAIL!

    • I agree. Lying in order to save yourself is PERJURY in the 1st degree. These people are probably receiving big bucks to lie. Our justice system is corrupt to the core.

  2. If this was a Demonrat seeking the truth, it would be just another day, no one would even question it.
    I am sick and tired of this dual system of justice. The Republicans need control of the House, Senate, and the White House. Once there don’t forget all the evil doings of the past by these Libtards. Payback should be swift and brutal.

  3. The choice is one of either go to court and risk being wrongfully imprisoned by a politically weaponized DOJ, or take a deal that avoids any imprisonment, pleading guilty to some minor thing, and agreeing to testify honestly if called. Once the prison threat is gone they can’t be put in double jeopardy and can testify the truth. That’s honestly what the left wanted. Being able to say “See these others pleaded guilty” to try to tarnish Trump. All of the big claims against them are gone.

    That’s our corrupt justice system these days. Accuse, file charges, make all sorts of legal threats, and try to get the defendant to admit they did something wrong. Even if it was some minor procedural thing, just so they can elicit “guilty of something, anything”. Like jaywalking when nobody else was even in sight for miles. No harm no foul but guilty of jaywalking. So they can say “See, they admitted guilt!”

    That’s total chicken shit tactics by the corrupt to take down someone they can’t come close to beating in a fair fight. It’s what’s done in Communist and 3rd world dictatorships. And now the corrupt leaders on the American left in politics. They’re destroying our nation on purpose and need court martialed for treason. And that’s why they’re throwing everything under the sun at Trump. Because they know Trump exposed their cheating and they know we know too.

    If they lose power they worry about TRUE justice catching up to them. My own personal opinion is they deserve court marshal and public hangings or firing squads. If Justice doesn’t apply to them too our country is lost.
