One witch hunt against Donald Trump is picking up steam.
Democrats are using outrageous lawfare tactics to take him down.
Now Fani Ellis has struck again, and Trump is furious.
Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis is moving full speed ahead with her Georgia election interference case against Donald Trump.
Willis brought a RICO case against Trump in order to charge his associates, including his own lawyers, as part of a criminal conspiracy as if he were a mafia boss.
RICO cases are more likely to get overturned on appeal, but Willis is using RICO to get quick plea deals from people in Trump’s orbit.
Strike three but don’t think Trump will head for the bench
And now a third attorney that worked for Trump, took a plea deal.
Jenna Ellis pleaded guilty to one count of aiding and abetting false statements.
As part of her cooperation, Ellis was sentenced to five years probation and must pay $5,000 in restitution.
She also agreed to testify in future proceedings against other defendants.
During a tear-filled statement to Judge Scott McAfee, Ellis said, “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…I believed that challenging the results on behalf of President Trump should be pursued in a just and legal way…I relied on others, including lawyers with many more years of experience than I, to provide me with true and reliable information, especially since my role involved speaking to the media and to legislators in various states…If I knew then what I know now, I would have declined to represent Donald Trump in these post-election challenges…I look back on this whole experience with deep remorse.”
Regardless of what happens, the Left got the humiliation ritual it wanted from Ellis.
The lawfare itself is part of the punishment.
Ellis joins Kenneth Chesebro and Sidney “Release the Kraken” Powell as attorneys who took deals from DA Willis.
However, it’s unclear how damaging their testimony could be.
Chesebro’s attorney Scott Grubman said that Trump shouldn’t be worried about anything his client would say, and he would be surprised if Willis even called him to testify.
And after word that Powell would testify, Trump attorney Steve Sadow said, “Assuming truthful testimony in the Fulton County case, it will be favorable to my overall defense strategy.”
The Democrats still have a long way to go before they can “get” Trump like they have promised their voters.
