The Trumpian tragedy of Jenna Ellis

The Trumpian tragedy of Jenna Ellis

Donald Trump continues to claim that the 2020 presidential election “was rigged and stolen,” as he said the other day on Truth Social, where he also teased the imminent unveiling of “massive information and evidence 100 % “. Meanwhile, in the real world, three lawyers who contributed to Mr. Trump’s plans to overturn his 2020 defeat have pleaded guilty to crimes in Georgia.

The last one is Jenna Ellis, who tearfully read a statement in court Tuesday acknowledging that she had made specious allegations, including to state lawmakers, without due diligence. “What I didn’t do but should have done, Your Honor, was make sure that the facts that the other lawyers claimed were true were in fact true,” she said. “If I had known then what I know now, I would have refused to represent Donald Trump in these post-election challenges.”
