Former Trump Campaign Lawyer Jenna Ellis Pleads Guilty Tuesday In Georgia Election Subversion Case

This is the third guilty plea in a week for former Trump campaign attorney Jenna Ellis, who entered a guilty plea on Tuesday in the Georgia election subversion case and agreed to work with Fulton County prosecutors.

Ellis entered a guilty plea to one count of aiding and abetting false statements at an ad hoc hearing in Atlanta. This charge stems from the election lies that Ellis and other attorneys for Donald Trump sold to lawmakers in Georgia in December 2020.

She was given a five-year probationary sentence and mandated to make $5,000 in restitution.

Ellis apologized to the judge in a heartfelt statement she gave on Tuesday after entering a guilty plea and acknowledging her involvement in Trump’s historic attempts to rig the 2020 election.

“If I knew then what I knew now, I would have declined to represent Donald Trump in these post-election challenges. I look back on this experience with deep remorse,” Ellis said, her voice breaking at times.

The development follows the two former Trump campaign attorneys, Sidney Powell and Kenneth Chesebro, who collaborated on the phony electors conspiracy, entering consecutive guilty pleas in the vast case last week.

Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis, who filed charges in August and is getting ready for trials against Trump, his former lawyer Rudy Giuliani, his chief of staff Mark Meadows, and other prominent figures, views these three plea agreements as a huge step forward. (They’ve all entered not-guilty pleas.)

Powell, Ellis, and Chesebro all consented to testify for the prosecution in upcoming cases. These former Trump aides are now positioned to become significant Trump adversaries after flipping. Since they are all attorneys, they can provide insight into the background events of 2020.

19 people were initially indicted by prosecutors in the lengthy investigation. Four have entered guilty pleas thus far.
