AG Announces Settlement with NRA

State Attorney General Letitia James recently announced that Joshua Powell, former National Rifle Association (NRA) executive director of Operations and chief of staff to recently resigned NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre, has reached a $100,000 agreement with her office.

Powell was one of five defendants in the lawsuit brought by the Office of the Attorney General (OAG) against the NRA and senior management in August 2020. As part of the agreement, Powell has admitted to OAG’s claims of wrongdoing in its lawsuit. The trial of the claims against the NRA and the remaining defendants began on Monday, Jan. 8.

“Joshua Powell’s admission of wrongdoing and Wayne LaPierre’s resignation confirm what we have alleged for years: the NRA and its senior leaders are financially corrupt,” James said.
