Election Integrity Attorney Arrested After Revealing Sensitive Emails by Dominion Voting Systems

Stefanie Lambert, an election integrity attorney who has pressed for transparency in regards to Dominion Voting Systems, was suddenly arrested in Washington D.C. on Monday night.

Stefanie Lambert, an election integrity attorney who has pressed for transparency in regards to Dominion Voting Systems, was suddenly arrested in Washington D.C. on Monday night.

Lambert was reportedly arrested by U.S. Marshals for disclosing allegedly confidential emails from Dominion Voting Systems in a Michigan court case.

The Associated Press reported on Lambert’s arrest:

An attorney facing criminal charges for illegally accessing Michigan voting machines after the 2020 election was arrested Monday after a hearing in a separate case in federal court in Washington, D.C.

Stefanie Lambert was arrested by U.S. Marshals after a hearing over possible sanctions against her for disseminating confidential emails from Dominion Voting Systems, the target of conspiracy theories over former President Donald Trump’s 2020 election loss. Lambert obtained the Dominion emails by representing Patrick Byrne, a prominent funder of election conspiracy theorists who is being sued by Dominion for defamation.

In a statement, the Marshals office said Lambert was arrested on “local charges.” A Michigan judge earlier this month issued a bench warrant for Lambert after she missed a hearing in her case, in which she’s charged with four felonies for accessing voting machines in a search for evidence of a conspiracy theory against Trump. Lambert had earlier, unsuccessfully, sued to overturn Trump’s loss in Michigan.

Earlier Monday, Lambert had acknowledged passing on the records from Dominion Voting Systems to “law enforcement.” She then attached an affidavit that included some of the leaked emails and was signed by Dar Leaf, a county sheriff in northern Michigan who has investigated false claims of widespread election fraud from the 2020 election, to a filing in her own case in Michigan. The rest of the documents were posted to an account under Leaf’s name on X, the social platform formally known as Twitter.

The Election Integrity Force, a voting rights watchdog, reported on the development.

In a troubling attack on the pillars of the American republic, Stefanie Lambert, a dedicated attorney championing electoral transparency was arrested today in Washington D.C. This incident comes on the heels of Ms. Lambert’s pivotal role in shedding light on the operations of Dominion Voting Systems, especially following a recent flood of confidential internal documents from Dominion that were made public earlier today. These documents accessible at Election Integrity Force, provide damning evidence of misconduct and have stirred public concern over the integrity of the 2020 election outcome.

Stefanie Lambert, renowned for her diligent pursuit of truth and accountability in our election system, found herself targeted by law enforcement as she attended a critical hearing at the United States District Court. Her arrest raises grave concerns about due process and the constitutional rights of those who seek to expose corruption and advocate for election integrity.

The leaked documents from Dominion Voting Systems reveal startling admissions by company officials, including the unlawful involvement of foreign nationals in the U.S. election infrastructure. Lambert’s arrest, under these circumstances, appears to be a calculated effort to intimidate and silence a prominent voice in the movement for election reform.

The significance of today’s events extends beyond Ms. Lambert’s personal legal battle. It represents a chilling threat to free speech, the right to legal defense, and the broader principles that underpin our our republic. When attorneys, who play a critical role in upholding justice and transparency, are persecuted for advocacy, it undermines public confidence in our institutions and erodes the foundation of our republic.

Despite the adversity she faces, Ms. Lambert remains resolute in her belief that the pursuit of justice and the unveiling of truth are paramount. Her case has mobilized a diverse coalition of individuals committed to protecting the integrity of our elections and holding those in power accountable.

Lambert provided a further statement to provide context on the situation.

“I gave the evidence to law enforcement,” she said. “The discovery (file from Dominion) contained evidence of numerous crimes. The Constitution does not permit secret Serbians to run our elections. Local clerks are to run our elections, & transparency is prevented by vendors (Dominion).”

In a recently filed lawsuit in the State of Michigan, a batch of emails from top Dominion Voting Systems officials to Serbian contractors was submitted for the court record.

Among those showing concern for Serbian contractors exposed as working for Dominion Voting Systems were the CEO John Poulos and the Director of Strategy Eric Coomer.

A Serbian staff member named Goran Obradovic, for example, contacted Dominion CEO John Poulos for advice on how to calm down contractors who were ‘very scared for their safety.’

Interestingly, election integrity expert J. Alex Halderman reached out to Dominion to offer his help to ‘dispel’ alleged conspiracy theories about the voting machine company.

In July 2023, Lambert was reportedly indicted for allegedly “illegally accessing voting machines” in Michigan.

A Michigan lawyer accused of illegally accessing voting machines following the 2020 election said she has been indicted.

Stefanie Lambert is one of nine people who allegedly tampered with voting tabulators to prove that the results of the election were rigged and that then-President Donald Trump and his supporters did not embellish claims of election fraud.

“My attorney has been informed that I have been indicted by [Muskegon County Prosecutor DJ Hilson], the special prosecutor in Michigan, working at the request of [Attorney General] Dana Nessel,” Lambert said Wednesday on the Conservative Daily podcast.

A spokesperson for Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson’s office told Newsweek via phone that their office has no records of Lambert being indicted.

Lambert stated at the time that she was unable to comment on allegations brought against others and further stated that she had not been provided with any legal documentation pertaining to her case or subsequent proceedings.

“DJ Hilson misrepresented important statutory and constitutional law and failed to advise the court and grand jury of the applicable law, and misrepresented the law to the court and the jury in order to obtain this indictment,” she argued.

The attorney responded to one of the two podcast presenters’ inquiry whether it was a component of a novel case against her.

“It’s worse than that. Nobody, including myself, did anything illegal,” she said. “We did not violate any laws.”
