Michigan attorney Stefanie Lambert Junttila was arrested by U.S. marshals in Washington, D.C. on Monday following a court hearing, after providing law enforcement with what AP described as “evidence of numerous crimes,” including internal emails from Dominion Voting Systems.

Lambert was attending a court hearing in Washington, D.C., concerning a defamation lawsuit involving Patrick Byrne, whom she represents. Byrne, the former CEO of Overstock, faces legal action from Dominion Voting Systems over his claims of election fraud.

The arrest of Lambert came to light after it was disclosed that she had leaked confidential documents from Dominion to Barry County Sheriff Dar Leaf, who has been actively investigating claims of voter fraud from the 2020 election, according to CNN.

Earlier, Breaking Digest reported that Barry County Sheriff Dar Leaf took a bold step by sending a letter to Rep. Jim Jordan, demanding a congressional investigation into what he alleges as evidence of “foreign interference” in the 2020 election.

Sheriff Leaf claims that foreign nationals accessed electronic voting machines in various states, including Michigan, to alter election outcomes.

After Lambert’s hearing concluded, the judge asked her to stay behind as the other attorneys left the courtroom. Federal marshals then entered, and Lambert was not seen leaving.

According to former Michigan Attorney General candidate and constitutional attorney Matt DePerno, Lambert “was arrested on an open bench warrant for failing to appear at a show cause hearing because she refused to get fingerprinted.”

AP News reported:

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 watchdog group for voting rights, released a statement on Lambert’s arrest.

Lambert offered insight in order to provide context to the situation.

Dominion’s legal team has implied that Lambert’s actions may amount to a criminal offense and has petitioned for her removal from the case. A future hearing will determine whether Lambert breached a court order by divulging the documents. Furthermore, the court has summoned Byrne to appear and answer questions regarding the incident.
