Watchdog Groups Want Jenna Ellis Disbarred

 December 17, 2023

Watchdog groups have banded together and are calling for former Trump attorney Jenna Ellis to be disbarred.

"We, together with the additional signatories below, write to urge the Office of Attorney Regulation Counsel (OARC) to promptly commence a formal disciplinary proceeding against Jenna Ellis seeking her disbarment in light of her recent guilty plea to a felony in Georgia," the letter from Lawyers Defending American Democracy (LDAD) and Stand United Democracy Center says.

The letter was sent to Jessica Yates, the attorney regulation counsel for the Colorado Supreme Court.

In case you've never heard of Jessica Yates before, the Colorado Supreme Court says that Yates "oversees attorney admissions, attorney registration, mandatory continuing legal and judicial education, attorney discipline and diversion, regulation against the unauthorized practice of law, and inventory counsel matters."

In October, Ellis pled guilty to one count of aiding and abetting false statements and writings in Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis' case regarding efforts to overturn the last presidential election.

Jenna Ellis was sentenced to five years of probation and ordered to perform 100 hours of community service. She also had to pay $5,000 in restitution and write an apology letter to the citizens of the state of Georgia.

"If I knew then what I know now, I would have declined to represent Donald Trump in these post-election challenges," a tearful Jenna Ellis told her judge at the time.

It wasn't just watchdog groups that signed the letters, several politicians put their signature on the demand to disbar Ellis as well.

Former Montana Governor, Democrat Steve Bullock; former Massachusetts Governor, Republican Bill Weld; and multiple state attorneys general also signed the demand.

"Attorneys barred in Colorado take an oath to ’employ such means as are consistent with truth and honor,'" the letter reads. "As set forth below, through acts undertaken in late 2020, Ms. Ellis violated that oath."

What happens to Ellis could have a big impact on Donald Trump.

The more she is punished and the more she speaks out against Trump, the more liberals will use her as proof that Trump is guilty.
