Trump attorney admits misrepresenting evidence of election fraud

Washington, Mar 9 (Prensa Latina) Jenna Ellis, a lawyer who represented former President Donald Trump, admitted in court that she made several misrepresentations on social media and major television appearances about the 2020 presidential election, leading a judge to issue a public censure on Wednesday.

Ellis, who was part of the former president’s efforts to challenge the legitimacy of his election loss, admitted to 10 misrepresentations about the election results, including statements made on Twitter and television programs on Fox News, Fox Business, MSNBC and Newsmax.

“The parties agree that Respondent, through her conduct, undermined the American public’s confidence in the presidential election, violating her duty of candor to the public,” Bryon Large, Colorado’s presiding disciplinary judge, wrote in his opinion.

Other Trump lawyers have been singled out for involvement in the former president’s post-election efforts.

Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani already had his law license suspended, and Jeffrey Clark, an attorney at the Justice Department who Trump weighed installing as attorney general to investigate the fraud claims Giuliani is now being reprimanded over, also faces disciplinary action before the board.

However, Ellis was the first attorney to acknowledge she misrepresented evidence to allege fraud, the source noted.

In addition to claiming that evidence was available of a coordinated effort in several states to transfer votes from Trump to Biden, she asserted that Trump’s legal team was certain of an illegal 500,000 ballots cast in Arizona.
