Jenna Ellis admits she made false claims about voter fraud
Jenna Ellis has just hammered another nail into the tightly sealed coffin housing Donald Trump’s voter fraud allegations. On Wednesday, the Colorado Supreme Court’s Office of Attorney Regulation Counsel reprimanded Ellis for misrepresenting evidence at least 10 times. Ellis, who is no longer representing Trump, agreed with the court’s findings through an attorney.
“The parties agree that two aggravators apply – the defendant had a selfish motive and she was subject to a pattern of wrongdoing – while one factor, her lack of prior discipline, mitigates her wrongdoing,” wrote Disciplinary Judge Bryon Large.
Ellis was a prominent member of Trump’s legal “strike force,” which also included Rudy Giuliani and Sidney “The Kraken” Powell. While they’ve made no headway in proving the 2020 election was stolen, all three face lawsuits over their wild allegations of cheating, which have circulated everywhere from Twitter to Fox News to some landscaping company parking lot.
Colorado is about several statements Ellis made either on Twitter or in interviews. Here’s just a sample of what she calls “misrepresentations.” About Mediaite:
On November 20, 2020, the defendant appeared on Mornings with Maria on Fox Business and stated, “We have affidavits from witnesses, we have voter intimidation, we have the ballots that were tampered with, we have all kinds of statistics showing that this one was a coordinated effort in all these states to either transfer votes from Trump to Biden, tamper with the ballots, count them in secret. . .”
On November 20, 2020, the defendant appeared on Spicer & Co. and stated, “With all these states [Nevada, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Georgia] Together we know President Trump’s election was stolen and we can prove it.”
On November 21, 2020, the Respondent stated on Twitter under her name @JennaEllisEsq.: ” . . . SECOND, we will bring testimonies and other evidence IN COURT to show how this election was STOLEN!”
On November 23, 2020, the defendant appeared on The Ari Melber Show on MSNBC and stated, “The election was stolen and Trump won by a landslide.”
you get the picture As for the fact that Ellis was involved in political speeches, the Colorado Supreme Court has pointed out that this is not carte blanche.
“Public criticism in this matter reinforces that lawyers cannot cross a line even when engaging in political speeches,” the ruling reads. “Especially when speaking in a representative capacity.”
