Trump co-conspirator Jenna Ellis: ‘Why isn’t Trump’s super PAC paying for my defense?’

Former Trump attorney Jenna Ellis, who is among the 18 co-conspirators indicted in the Georgia Jan. 6 case, spoke out publicly this Monday, wondering why the super PAC MAGA Inc. isn’t funding her defense in the RICO case.

“I was reliably informed Trump isn’t funding any of us who are indicted,” Ellis wrote in a post on X, formerly known as Twitter. “Would this change if he becomes the nominee? Why then, not now? I totally agree this has become a bigger principle than just one man. So why isn’t MAGA, Inc. funding everyone’s defense?”

Ellis was responding to a post from American Conservative Union chair Matt Schlapp, who wrote: “The sooner we unify behind a nominee that sooner we can use recourses to fund the defense of everyone indicted for being a Trump Republican.”

From The Hill:

Ellis faces two charges in Georgia over her part in former President Trump’s efforts to overturn the 2020 election: racketeering, which every defendant in the case is charged with, and socializing a public officer to violate their oath in connection with her attendance at a Dec. 3 Georgia Senate Judiciary Subcommittee hearing.

Earlier this year, she admitted in court to making false statements about the 2020 presidential election, leading a judge to issue a public censure.

According to prosecutors, Ellis allegedly “solicited, requested, and importuned” Pennsylvania legislators to illegally appoint presidential electors from the state. She also allegedly made false statements about voter fraud.
