“Jenna Ellis, a one-time lawyer for former President Donald Trump, pleaded guilty to a charge in Georgia on Oct. 24.
Ms. Ellis, 38, who was part of President Trump’s legal team during the 2020 presidential election, pleaded guilty in Fulton County court…
According to documents entered in court, Ms. Ellis admitted that claims she made about the 2020 presidential election and Georgia were false, including allegations that 2,506 felons and 10,315 dead people voted in the election.
The documents also said the allegation that workers at State Farm Arena ordered poll watchers and reporters to leave the tabulation area the night of the election and continued to operate after everyone left was false, even though all observers did leave and counting continued.
The charge carries a prison term of one to five years and/or a fine of up to $1,000.
But under the plea agreement, Ms. Ellis will avoid jail time.
If she complies with the agreement, Ms. Ellis will serve five years probation, complete 100 hours of community service, pay a $5,000 fine, and cooperate with prosecutors, Fulton County Superior Court Judge Scott McAfee said.”
Analyst Comment: 4 out of 18 charged have plead guilty, all to avoid paying for a trial and serving any jail time. The goal by prosecutors seems to be to flip these “Trump associates” to testify against him, and strengthen a weak case.
