Former Trump campaign attorney Sidney Powell pleads not guilty in Georgia case
Driving the news: Powell, whose charges include violating Georgia's racketeering law and conspiracy to commit election fraud, waived her right to a formal arraignment, per the court filing.
Catch up quick: Powell surrendered to the Fulton County jail last Wednesday just before the Friday deadline set by the district attorney.
- One of Trump's 18 co-defendants, Powell joined his inner circle during his final days in the White House to try to keep him in office, despite his election loss.
- Powell helped spread baseless conspiracy theories about voter fraud in the days after the 2020 election — and the campaign eventually sought to distance itself from her.
Of note: Trevian Kutti, another defendant in the case who allegedly participated in a campaign to harass an election worker, also entered a not guilty plea on Tuesday.
Meanwhile, Trump's arraignment in the case is scheduled for Sept. 6.
