The political witch hunt against Donald Trump by radical Democrat Georgia DA Fani Willis is heating up.
And the news is concerning for the former President.
That’s why Donald Trump blew his lid after this 2020 lawyer became the latest to flip in the Georgia election case.
Democrats and Never-Trump RINOs have spent the last eight years trying to destroy President Donald Trump.
Co-defendants starting to flip
Jenna Ellis, a conservative attorney, and media personality who worked on the Trump 2020 campaign, recently pleaded guilty to a criminal charge in the Georgia election interference case.
Ellis is just the latest co-defendant of former President Donald Trump to take a deal in the Georgia case.
She joins other high-profile lawyers, Sidney Powell and Kenneth Chesebro, as well as bail bondsman Scott Powell.
That leaves 15 defendants left in the massive politically-charged case.
As part of Ellis’ plea deal, she is required to testify truthfully at all hearings or trials involving any other co-defendants in the case, including President Trump.
The recent plea deals in radical leftist Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis’ racketeering case could signal a growing threat to Trump.
Currently, the former President is fighting politically-motivated criminal charges in four separate cases, even as he runs for President in 2024 and is the clear frontrunner for the GOP nomination.
A tearful apology
Ellis pleaded guilty in Fulton County Superior Court to one count of aiding and abetting false statements and writings, which is a felony.
Her charge related to alleged false claims of voter fraud that were made to members of the Georgia Senate at a hearing in early December 2020.
Ellis pled guilty in a tearful statement before Judge Scott McAfee, and she expressed regret for her actions after Trump’s supposed loss to President Joe Biden in the 2020 election.
“As an attorney who is also a Christian, I take my responsibilities as a lawyer very seriously and I endeavor to be a person of sound moral and ethical character in all of my dealings,” Ellis said.
“I believed that challenging the results on behalf of President Trump should be pursued in a just and legal way,” she said, but “I failed to do my due diligence.”
Instead, she said she mistakenly relied on information provided to her by other lawyers “with many more years of experience.”
“If I knew then what I know now, I would have declined to represent Donald Trump in these post-election challenges,” she said. “I look back on this whole experience with deep remorse.”
Ellis originally faced two felony charges in the indictment, which accuses Trump and 18 co-defendants of illegally conspiring to overturn Biden’s victory in Georgia’s 2020 contest.
Ellis will avoid prison time as part of her plea agreement.
She was instead sentenced to five years of probation, a $5,000 fine, 100 hours of community service, and writing an apology letter to the people of Georgia.
