It’s hard to sort through all the legal news related to Donald Trump, but the 2020 election interference case in Georgia confirms shocking details that were merely rumors just three years ago. Jenna Ellis, Donald Trump’s former lawyer, has revealed to prosecutors how far he is willing to go despite losing the White House to Joe Biden.
Ellis shared in her testimony, obtained by ABC News, that it was White House Deputy Chief of Staff for Communications Dan Scavino who revealed the nefarious plans to her after she told him their election challenge was “essentially over.” They couldn’t go any further with their claims. She says Scavino, in a “kind of excited” tone, told her: “Well, we don’t care, and we’re not leaving.”
“And I said, ‘What do you mean?’” Ellis asked. “And he said, ‘Well, the President,’ meaning President Trump – and everyone understood ‘the President,’ and that’s what we all called him – he said, ‘The President will not leave under any circumstances.’ ‘We will remain in power.'” The lawyer decided to be a voice. The mind is in the moment and urges Scavino to go a little further.
She continued: “I told him: Well, it doesn’t work that way, do you realize that?” As we all know, Donald Trump ceded power to Joe Biden (and peacefully), but Ellis’s moment of clarity did not absolve her from also filing charges alongside her former boss. . She is one of 19 defendants in the Georgia election fraud case and has pleaded guilty to “one count of aiding and abetting false statements and writings.”
This incredible revelation confirms the long-standing rumor from Maggie Haberman’s book, Confidence Man: The Making of Donald Trump and the Fall of America, that Donald Trump tried hard to remain in power after the end of his term. This could be devastating evidence for the former president accused of trying to overturn the results of the 2020 election in the southern state, and adds another intriguing chapter to his legal saga.
