Former Trump campaign lawyer Sidney Powell pleaded not guilty Tuesday after being charged in Georgia for alleged efforts to interfere in the 2020 election results.

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.

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.
