Jenna Ellis' Disloyalty Has a Price After All

  • 8 Comments
  • by: Colorado Pols

Jenna Ellis, the Colorado licensed attorney who now stands indicted along with 18 others including ex-President Donald Trump for her role in the attempted subversion of the 2020 presidential election results in the state of Georgia, has been publicly complaining for days about the lack of financial support not just she but allegedly all of Trump’s co-conspirators are suffering:

Under fire from Trump supporters, Ellis reiterated yesterday that it wasn’t just her own legal defense she was worried about, but everyone facing indictment in Georgia:

As readers know, there’s a very important difference between Jenna Ellis and the rest of the indicted Georgia co-conspirators. Ellis has formally admitted to numerous false statements about the 2020 presidential election as part of her censure agreement with Colorado attorney regulators. That sets Ellis apart from fellow Trump attorney John Eastman, who yesterday once again stated without reservation that he believes the “Big Lie” that the 2020 election was stolen. Likewise, Trump’s lead coup-torney Rudy Giuliani has refused to admit he was wrong even as he faces disbarment.

This crucial difference between Ellis and her indicted co-conspirators is why we must now be the bearer of bad tidings:

Contrary to Ellis’ belief that Trump isn’t helping any of his co-conspirators, Trump will be hosting a $100,000 per person fundraiser for Rudy Giuliani next month, at no less of a sacred space than the gravesite of Ivana Trump–otherwise known as Trump’s Bedminster, New Jersey golf club. Giuliani’s legal and financial problems stemming from his loyal service to Trump are more extensive than just the indictment in Georgia, but a clutch of $100,000 checks will help Giuliani bigly.

Jenna Ellis, on the other hand, is not getting a $100,000-a-head fundraiser at Bedminster. Ellis coming out in support of Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is certainly a factor working against Ellis with Trump, but more important at this point is that Ellis is a hindrance to Trump’s legal defense after having disavowed the “Big Lie.” With Trump’s legal defense depending on the illusion of the “Big Lie” as justification for their criminal actions, it would arguably be counterproductive for Trump to fund Ellis’ legal defense when she has already discredited that defense with her own admissions.

That logic holds up until the moment Ellis decides to turn against Trump. Ellis is one of a small number of people who could have clarifying insight about whether Trump knew he had lost the election as he executed the coup plot.

And Ellis has less reason not to turn on Trump with each passing day.

  1. Did you ever notice that so-called advocates of "rugged individualism" can't seem to unify on anything? It's almost like there's a contradiction there somewhere. 😉

    1. Giuliani could no doubt hire a lawyer. 

      But he's got a few other competing financial claims.  CNN listed:

      Not including standard legal fees, Giuliani faces nearly $90,000 in sanctions from a judge in a defamation case, a $20,000 monthly fee to a company to host his electronic records, $15,000 or more for a search of his records, and even a $57,000 judgment against his company for unpaid phone bills.

      He faces potentially perilous court decisions against him in two 2020 election defamation lawsuits. [two of the 4 defamation cases in process]

      Giuliani is facing disbarment proceedings in DC and New York. His law license is already suspended

      And he is facing a personal lawsuit from an ex-employee filed in May, which he is contesting. 

       

       

  2.   Hey Jen,

      If you scoot slightly off the center, but not TOO close

    to the wheels, the differential won't take off your nose.

      Hope this helps.
