Former Trump Lawyer Jenna Ellis Pleads Guilty in RICO Case

On Tuesday, Jenna Ellis, a 2020 campaign adviser for former president Donald Trump, became the third member of his legal team to admit guilt in the Georgia election subversion and racketeering case.

Ellis is the fourth defendant to enter a guilty plea in the lawsuit, which holds 19 people—including Trump—conspiratorially responsible for trying to rig the Georgia election.

“If I knew then what I know now, I would have declined to represent Donald Trump in these … election challenges,”  Ellis said in a statement read after her plea.

She reached a deal with the prosecution less than two weeks after Sidney Powell and Kenneth Chesebro did so just hours before their trials.

Ellis entered a guilty plea to one felony count of encouraging false writings and statements in Georgia.

The charge is related to her appearance with Ray Smith and Rudy Giuliani before a Georgia Senate subcommittee on December 3, 2020.

Ellis agreed to five years of probation, $5,000 in restitution to the Georgia Secretary of State’s Office, 100 hours of community service, a letter of apology to the state of Georgia, and a promise to testify truthfully in any subsequent proceedings involving the massive racketeering case.
