It’s the third guilty plea since last week, in which former Trump campaign lawyer Jenna Ellis pleaded guilty Tuesday to Georgia election sabotage charges and will cooperate with Fulton County prosecutors. An unscheduled hearing has been held in Atlanta, in which Ellis was convicted of one count of aiding and abetting false statements, crimes stemming from the election. Ellis and other Donald Trump lawyers also accused Georgia lawmakers of fraud in December 2020. Was accused of.
He was sentenced to five years’ probation and ordered to pay $5,000 in restitution.
With tears in his eyes, Ellis pleaded guilty in a statement to the judge and detailed his participation in Trump’s unprecedented efforts to overturn the 2020 election.
The role of social media in Jenna Ellis’s legal and political career
If I had known then what I know now, I would have refused to represent Donald Trump in these post-election challenges. This experience of mine is deplorable,” Ellis said, her voice breaking at times. The development follows back-to-back guilty pleas last week from former Trump campaign lawyers Sidney Powell and Kenneth Chesebro, who were accused of helping commit fraudulent voter fraud. The lawsuit filed by Ellis implicates Giuliani in a state crime – lying to Georgia legislators by spreading false voter fraud theories. This comes a week after Chesbrough implicated Giuliani in a fraudulent voter scheme that sought to subvert the Electoral College process. Giuliani flatly denied any wrongdoing.
In a tearful apology delivered in court, Ellis spoke of his personal “failures” and expressed “deep remorse” for denying his involvement in Trump’s legal efforts to overturn the 2020 presidential election.
Ellis said, “As a lawyer who is also a Christian, I take my responsibilities as a lawyer very seriously and strive to be a person of good and moral character in all my dealings.” But after the 2020 election, “I failed to do my due diligence,” she said.
