Pro-Trump Attorney Arrested After Leaked Dominion Docs Hearing

•, By Nancy Jackson

Stefanie Lambert, an attorney charged with illegally accessing Michigan voting machines after the 2020 election, was arrested on "local charges" stemming from a separate case in Michigan.

After the arrest, she was turned over to the D.C. Metropolitan Police for holding, U.S. Marshals Service spokesperson Brady McCarron told The Hill.

Lambert faces four felony charges for accessing voting machines in Michigan in an effort to find evidence supporting former President Trump's claims of election fraud in the 2020 presidential election.

The hearing Monday — after which Lambert was arrested — focused on whether she should be sanctioned or removed as an attorney for former Overstock CEO Patrick Byrne in a defamation case brought by . Lambert is representing Byrne, who is accused of spreading false claims that Dominion's voting machines played a role in the so-called "fraud" during the 2020 presidential election.

The Monday hearing came after Dominion Voting Systems filed a motion demanding that Lambert be removed from the case for allegedly violating a protective order placed on the documents in the case.

Lambert acknowledged in court that she passed on the records she obtained as Byrne's attorney to "," the Associated Press reported. She attached an affidavit that included some of the Dominion emails to a filing in her own Michigan case, and, according to the AP, that affidavit was signed by a Michigan county sheriff, Dar Leaf, who has investigated some of the false claims of election fraud in 2020.
