Abbe Lowell’s involvement in a lawsuit filed by Elliott Broidy, a former prominent GOP member and close ally of Donald Trump, became known through a recent court filing. Broidy sued the Qatari government in 2018, claiming that the country had organized a hacking and defamation campaign against him in 2017 and 2018. These accusations of hacking and smear campaigns have continuously been denied by Qatar.
According to Broidy’s lawsuit, Lowell represented a businessman who was purportedly operating in the U.S. on behalf of Qatar in 2018. According to the allegations, Lowell assisted in the creation of documents that allegedly helped a witness give false testimony in order to get diplomatic immunity for Lowell’s client.
According to Broidy’s petition, Lowell allegedly made Joey Allaham, a political strategist for Qatar, an offer of more than $1.5 million to flout a court order and hide evidence of the hacking plan. Records show that Jamal Benomar, a person connected to the Qatari government, was being represented by Lowell, a lawyer with Winston & Strawn, in 2018.
