Former Trump campaign legal adviser Jenna Ellis has quit the Republican Party after the party’s chief attorney undermined efforts to overturn the 2020 presidential election.
She made the announcement on her own show on Real America’s Voice, further suggesting that she could come back once the party leaders, such as Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel, resign.
“All of them, including Ronna McDaniel, should resign now. Until they do, as of today, I am resigning from the party,” Ellis said. “I am changing my voter registration, and I am no longer a Republican until the party decides that it wants to be conservative again. Even if I stand alone for the truth, I will stand for the truth.”
She made the comments after Justin Riemer, the chief legal counsel for the Republican National Committee, sent an email asking an RNC official not to share the former president’s allegations of voter fraud.
“What Rudy and Jenna are doing is a joke and they are getting laughed out of court,” Riemer said of Ellis and Rudy Giuliani, Trump’s former attorney.
Giuliani has been at the center of Trump’s efforts to overturn the outcome of the 2020 presidential election.
A new book has reportedly detailed how he tried to manipulate the narrative in Trump’s favor on the election night as his boss’s official loss had not yet been proclaimed.
“Just say we won,” Giuliani told Trump’s campaign manager Bill Stepien, chief of staff Mark Meadows and White House adviser Stephen Miller at the White Hous, according to an excerpt of the book, published by The Washington Post.
Titled, “I Alone Can Fix It: Donald J. Trump’s Catastrophic Final Year,” the book is is set to be released on July 20.
