GA election interference case leads to suspension of former Trump attorney Jenna Ellis’s law license

Attorney Jenna Ellis, who has admitted to aiding and abetting false statements in the Georgia election interference case, has recently faced a three-year suspension of her law license.

The Colorado Supreme Court issued an order on Tuesday, stating that Ellis had caused significant actual harm in various ways. This action undermined the confidence of the American public in the presidential election process.

Ellis played a crucial role as a member of former President Donald Trump’s legal team. Their objective was to persuade legislatures in seven critical battleground states, including Georgia, that substantial voter fraud had occurred. They aimed to establish that these legislatures possessed the constitutional authority to overturn the election results and appoint their own set of Republican electors.

The Jan. 6 Commission has identified Ellis as one of the masterminds behind the plan to persuade then-Vice President Mike Pence to discard the legally certified Democratic electors from key swing states on Jan. 6. Instead, they aimed to count the Republican false electors, ultimately leading to Trump winning the election.

Legal experts unanimously agreed that Vice President Pence did not possess the constitutional authority to carry out such an action, and he firmly declined to do so.

In October 2023, Ellis admitted his guilt and publicly read an apology letter in court.

“I didn’t do my research properly while rushing to challenge the election results in various states, including Georgia. I genuinely believe in and prioritize the integrity of our elections. If I had known then what I know now, I would have made the decision to not represent Donald Trump in these legal battles,” Ellis stated earnestly.

Ellis faced disciplinary action in Colorado for spreading false information about the 2020 election, including baseless claims that the election was “stolen” from Trump.

In Tuesday’s order, it was stated that Ellis must submit an affidavit within 14 days. The affidavit should include lists of pending matters, lists of clients, and copies of client notices.

Additionally, she is responsible for covering all the fees and court costs.

Ellis is one of the four individuals who have admitted guilt in the election interference case. Scott Hall, a bail bondsman from the Atlanta area, was sentenced to five years of probation, a $5,000 fine, and 200 hours of community service.

Kenneth Chesebro has agreed to a five-year probationary period, where he will be required to fulfill certain obligations. These include paying $5,000 in restitution, completing community service hours, and composing an apology letter to the citizens of Georgia. In addition, he must provide truthful testimony and refrain from any contact with witnesses or co-defendants.

Sidney Powell has been sentenced to six years probation, along with a $6,000 fine and a restitution payment of $2,700 to the Georgia Secretary of State’s Office. As part of the sentence, she is required to provide truthful testimony against her co-defendants and is prohibited from having any contact with witnesses or other co-defendants.
