In a surprising turn of events, another member of former President Donald Trump’s legal team has taken a plea deal in the Georgia election fraud case. Jenna Ellis, who was once a staunch defender of Trump’s claims of election fraud, has now admitted to submitting false statements to Georgia lawmakers regarding the counting of votes in the 2020 election. Ellis reached an agreement with Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis, pleading guilty to one count of aiding and abetting false statements.

This plea deal marks a significant development in the case, as Ellis is now the third co-defendant of Trump to admit guilt. It appears that the pressure from the prosecution was too much for Ellis to bear, resulting in her decision to cooperate. It is worth noting that three other co-defendants were able to avoid prison time by pleading guilty.
Ellis now confesses that she played a role in pressuring the Georgia Legislature to take up a slate of alternate delegates by making false claims about fraudulent voting activities. She alleged that mail-in ballots were improperly submitted, felons were allowed to vote illegally, and even claimed that over 10,000 dead people had votes cast in their names. These allegations, which have been thoroughly debunked, were widely promoted by Trump and his legal team following the election.
While this plea deal paints a damning picture of Trump’s legal team, it also raises questions about the impartiality of District Attorney Fani Willis. Critics argue that she may be driven by political bias and a desire for political theater rather than a genuine pursuit of justice. The fact that the local sheriff’s office cooperated with Willis to obtain Trump’s mugshot, a move unprecedented in four criminal cases, further fuels this suspicion.
As this case moves forward, the testimonies of co-defendants like Scott Hall, Sidney Powell, Kenneth Chesebro, and now Jenna Ellis will be critical in determining Trump’s culpability. It is important to note that Ellis had a direct link to Trump, having been hired as a legal adviser to his campaign in 2019. She was also part of the legal team that challenged the election outcomes in several swing states. Despite these efforts, none of the legal challenges were successful in court.
This plea deal serves as a compelling reminder that the claims of widespread election fraud pushed by Trump and his legal team were baseless. The growing number of guilty pleas and the lack of evidence presented in court only further discredits these claims. It remains to be seen how this case will ultimately affect Trump, but it undoubtedly raises serious questions about the integrity of his legal team and their tactics.
