Jenna Ellis, former attorney for Trump, has her law license suspended due to involvement in GA election interference case

Attorney Jenna Ellis, who admitted to aiding and abetting false statements in the Georgia election interference case, has recently had her law license suspended for a period of three years.

The Colorado Supreme Court, in its order issued on Tuesday, stated that Ellis has caused substantial real harm in multiple ways, which has resulted in a loss of confidence among the American public in the integrity of the presidential election process.

Ellis played a role in the legal team of former President Donald Trump, who aimed to persuade legislatures in seven crucial battleground states, including Georgia, that substantial voter fraud had occurred. Their objective was to assert constitutional authority to overturn the election and choose Republican electors instead.

According to the Jan. 6 Commission, Ellis played a key role in devising a plan to persuade Vice President Mike Pence to disregard the legally certified Democratic electors from the battleground states on Jan. 6. The plan involved counting the false Republican electors instead, with the intention of overturning the election in favor of Trump.

Legal experts unanimously concurred that Pence lacked the constitutional authority to execute such an action, resulting in his refusal.

In October 2023, Ellis pleaded guilty and publicly read an apology letter in court.

“In my rush to challenge the election results in multiple states, including Georgia, I neglected to thoroughly investigate the matter. I have always placed great importance on maintaining the integrity of elections. Looking back, if I had been aware of the information I have now, I would have made the decision to decline representing Donald Trump in these legal battles,” Ellis expressed remorsefully.

Ellis faced disciplinary action in Colorado for spreading false information about the 2020 election, specifically claiming that the election was stolen from Trump.

In the recent order, it was stated that Ellis is required to submit an affidavit within 14 days. This affidavit should include lists of pending matters, lists of clients, and copies of client notices.

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

Ellis, along with three others, has already pleaded guilty in the election interference case. Another individual, Scott Hall, who is a bail bondsman from the Atlanta area, was sentenced to five years of probation, a fine of $5,000, and 200 hours of community service.

Kenneth Chesebro has agreed to a five-year probation period, along with several other conditions. These include paying $5,000 in restitution, completing community service hours, and writing an apology letter to the citizens of Georgia. Additionally, he will be required to testify truthfully and must refrain from contacting witnesses or other co-defendants.

Sidney Powell has been given a sentence of six years probation, along with a $6,000 fine and a requirement to pay $2,700 in restitution to the Georgia Secretary of State’s Office. Additionally, she will be required to provide truthful testimony against the other co-defendants involved in the case and is prohibited from contacting any witnesses or co-defendants.
