Trump lawyer Jenna Ellis pleads GUILTY over Georgia election interference case
By Ramon Tomey // Oct 26, 2023

Jenna Ellis, a lawyer and former member of Donald Trump's legal team, has entered a guilty plea over the Georgia election interference case filed by Fulton County District Attorney (DA) Fani Willis.

According to a CNBC report, Ellis pleaded guilty on Oct. 24, the fourth individual to strike a deal with federal prosecutors. Prior to her, three other defendants – lawyers Kenneth Chesebro and Sidney Powell, alongside bail bondsman Scott Hall – also entered guilty pleas.

The 38-year-old Ellis pleaded guilty before Judge Scott McAfee in Fulton County Superior Court to one count of aiding and abetting false statements and writings. She tearfully expressed regret for her actions in the wake of President Joe Biden's victory in the 2020 election, which had been stolen from Trump by means of vote fraud. The charge stemmed from claims of voter fraud that were made to members of the Georgia Senate at a hearing in early December 2020.

"As an attorney who is also a Christian, I take my responsibilities as a lawyer very seriously," Ellis read a prepared statement. "I endeavor to be a person of sound moral and ethical character in all of my dealings."

"I believed that challenging the results on behalf of President Trump should be pursued in a just and legal way, [and] I failed to do my due diligence. If I knew then what I know now, I would have declined to represent Trump in these post-election challenges. I look back on this whole experience with deep remorse."

As part of her plea agreement, Ellis will not spend time behind bars. Instead, she was sentenced to five years of probation and fined $5,000 for restitution. McAfee also ordered Ellis to complete 100 hours of community service and write an apology letter addressed to the people of the Peach State.

Moreover, Ellis was also mandated to testify truthfully at all hearings or trials involving other co-defendants in the case – including Trump himself. The same condition had been imposed on the three defendants who earlier pleaded guilty.

Ellis' guilty plea sparks calls to RETURN money for her supposed legal fund

Ellis originally faced two felony charges in Willis' August indictment, which accused Trump and 18 others of illegally conspiring to overturn Biden's victory in Georgia. According to CNBC, the 98-page, 41-count indictment accused Ellis of urging state legislators in key swing states that Biden won to appoint pro-Trump presidential electors.

Prior to her guilty plea, Ellis' legal team at Melito Law LLC established a legal defense fund via GiveSendGo. The campaign had raised $216,431 as of the morning of Oct. 24. While the fundraising page remains open as of writing, some social media users have called for Ellis to return the money in light of her plea deal.

X Strategies CEO Alex Bruesewitz noted in a post on X (formerly Twitter) how Ellis "raised hundreds of thousands of dollars to 'fight back' against the frivolous … charges." He lamented that instead of holding her ground, Ellis "caved quickly, just like she did when she was threatened with disbarment in Colorado."

Bruesewitz ultimately concluded that Ellis "should do the right thing and return the money to the donors." Townhall columnist Gavin Wax agreed with Bruesewitz, stating his take in three words: "Return the money."

Breitbart asked Ellis if she planned to return the funds to donors given her plea deal. She did not immediately respond to this request for comment, however.
