After her Monday arrest in D.C., pro-Trump attorney Stefanie lambert was released so she could drive to Michigan and turn herself in after she missed a hearing in the state.

She stands accused of improperly accessing voting equipment while seeking evidence related to former President Donald Trump's election fraud claims and had been due to appear at a March 7 hearing, though her absence resulted in the issuance of a warrant, according to the Associated Press.

"I don't think it's something she is running away from," Lambert's attorney, Kevin Irving said, adding that she would return to Michigan willingly.

Lambert was arrested after a hearing in D.C. related to her leaking emails from Dominion Voting Systems, to which she obtained access while representing Patrick Byrne against the firm's defamation claims. Byrne has financed a litany of election oversight efforts.

Dominion, for its part, has been the subject of intense scrutiny from those claiming fraud affecting the outcome of the 2020 presidential election. The company last year settled a defamation case with Fox News that saw the network agree to pay $787.5 million.
