Former Trump campaign legal adviser Jenna Ellis is leaving the Republican Party in protest amid reports that the party’s chief attorney bashed the Trump campaign’s efforts to overturn the 2020 presidential election.
During Monday’s episode of “Just the Truth,” her show on Real America’s Voice, Ellis said she was leaving the party until its top officials resign, including Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel.
“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 continued.
The resignation comes after The Washington Post reported that Justin Riemer, chief legal counsel for the Republican National Committee, sent an email asking an RNC official to not share unfounded claims 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.
“They are misleading millions of people who have wishful thinking that the president is going to somehow win this thing,” Riemer continued.
Business Insider also reported the account via an early copy of Michael Wolff’s forthcoming book, “Landslide: The Final Days of the Trump Presidency.” This account notes that Ellis was forwarded the email, which she saw during a dinner with Giuliani and former New York City Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik.
