Trump lawyer: Chauvin was convicted because leftists want him to ‘pay for the sins of white people’

Speaking on her Real America’s Voice show Just the Truth this Tuesday, former Trump campaign lawyer Jenna Ellis reacted to the news that Derek Chauvin was convicted of all charges in his trial over the death of George Floyd, saying that the former Minneapolis police officer was already convicted in the “court of opinion.”

“True and meaningful justice has been reinvented to mean ‘social justice’ — the political and cultural retribution for viewpoint sins of the day,” Ellis said.

According to Ellis, “it doesn’t matter to the left that our justice system requires the state to prove each and every element of the alleged offense beyond any and all reasonable doubt.”

“Derek Chauvin is White, George Floyd is Black, so Chauvin is implicitly and automatically guilty of racism, so he must be punished,” she continued. “he must be made to pay for the sins of White people collectively.”
