Former Trump ally and lawyer Jenna Ellis has made headlines after pleading guilty to one felony count of aiding and abetting false statements. In a tearful statement, Ellis expressed regret for her actions and admitted that she had failed to do her due diligence. This comes just days after Sidney Powell, another former Trump lawyer, also pled guilty in Georgia.

Ellis, who now faces years of probation and a fine, implicated others in her plea deal, including Rudy Giuliani. According to Ellis, she assisted Giuliani and Ray Smith in making false statements to Georgia lawmakers during a legislative hearing. This puts them all in legal jeopardy.
While the terms of Ellis’s plea agreement have not been made public, three other co-defendants narrowly avoided prison time by reaching similar plea deals. It is important to note that former President Donald Trump has distanced himself from Powell, stating that she was never his lawyer.
It is disheartening to see individuals who were once Trump allies now facing legal consequences for their actions. This situation highlights the importance of due diligence and following legal procedures. It is crucial for individuals to think carefully before blindly supporting any cause, especially when it comes to challenging election results. This is a reminder that everyone, regardless of their political affiliation, should prioritize integrity and respect for the rule of law.
