Former President Trump’s former attorney, who was his adviser during his 2020 Presidential campaign, is now the fourth co-defendant to take a plea.
Jenna Ellis has decided to plea guilty to a single count in the case brought by Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis over alleged efforts to change the outcome of the 2020 election.
Ellis appeared in court on October 24 to plead guilty to one felony charge of aiding and abetting false statements and writing. She now joins Sidney Powell, Kenneth Chesebro and Georgia bail bondsman Scott Hall in accepting a plea deal.
In the spring of 2023, Ellis attended a DeSantis event and expressed support for the Florida governor.
Name one thing Gov Ron DeSantis did in Florida you don’t agree with, from a policy standpoint.
Signing a heartbeat bill?
Banning CCP-owned land?
Banning Central Bank Digital Currency?
Firing a Soros prosecutor?
Firing a staff leaker?
Taking porn out of schools?

Ellis was attacked by Trump supporters and surrogates but she pushed back.
“Team Trump is pushing a lie that I’ve been divorced 3x. It’s false. So why THIS lie?” Ellis wrote. “They want to destroy my character and make me seem untrustworthy and… ‘disloyal.’ It’s the lowest form of political attack but that’s all they have. It’s no better than leftists.”
Ellis was also furious that Trump has refused to pay any of her legal fees.
I was reliably informed Trump isn’t funding any of us who are indicted.
Would this change if he becomes the nominee? Why then, not now?
I totally agree this has become a bigger principle than just one man. So why isn’t MAGA, Inc. funding everyone’s defense? https://t.co/dI0JvThJyp

Some of Trump’s allies have received some finical aid to cover their legal bills. A Trump political action committee has covered about $340,000 for former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani.
