Three Trump co-defendants say they won't cooperate with prosecution

 November 14, 2023

Former Trump attorney Jenna Ellis made headlines last month when she agreed to against the former president as part of a plea agreement with Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis.

Yet while Ellis and several other of the former president's co-defendants have struck deals, others say they won't be cooperating. 

Three individuals described as remaining "defiant"

According to the Washington Post, one of them is Rev. Stephen Lee, who is accused of conspiring with the hip-hop publicist Trevian Kutti and former Trump campaign staffer Harrison Floyd.

Willis claims that Lee, Kutti, and Floyd hatched a scheme to target a Georgia election worker named Ruby Freeman.

Specifically, the trio are accused of trying to coerce Freeman into admitting that helped steal the 2020 election on behalf of President Joe Biden.

Although Willis has brought charges of racketeering, influencing witnesses, and conspiracy to solicit false statements, against them, the Post noted that all three remain "defiant."

Pastor: "I'm not going to plead out to a lie"

Lee addressed his charges when speaking to members of his congregation at the Living Word Lutheran Church in Orland Park last week.

"I'm not going to plead out to a lie," the church pastor said while speaking at a fundraiser for his defense.

"I’m not going to cooperate with evil. I’m not going to do something that is going to eat away or destroy our First Amendment rights. … This is the Lord’s battle, and we’ve got to fight it," he added.

Conservative YouTube host Gary Franchi appeared at the event as well, and he declared, "That election was stolen right out from under every single American."

"I want each one of you to think: What can you give tonight? How can you support this battle? Because it’s not just a battle for the pastor," Franchi stressed.

"This is a battle for the Constitution of the United States, for the rights that are enshrined in our Bill of Rights, handed down by our creator that are under direct assault by the devils who somehow find themselves in positions of power," the YouTuber insisted.

Meanwhile, the Post reported that Kutti regularly professes her innocence in social media posts and has suggested that she be made White House press secretary should Trump win in next year's election.

For his part, Floyd is attempting to use his case as a venue to demonstrate that the 2020 election was stolen in Georgia.
