Fani Willis, a rogue prosecutor, claimed a new victim on Tuesday when she convinced former Trump lawyer Jenna Ellis to plead guilty to making false statements and writings related to the 2020 election in Georgia.
She was reportedly in tears as she entered her guilty plea at the Fulton County Superior Court.
Ellis stated, “As a Christian attorney who takes his responsibilities very seriously, I strive to be someone of good moral character and ethics in all my dealings.” “I thought that challenging the results for President Trump in a legal and just way should be pursued, but I did not do my due diligence.”
Ellis said, “If I had known then what I know today, I would not have accepted to represent Donald Trump during these post-election challenges.”
“I look back at this entire experience with a deep sense of regret.”
On Tuesday, Ellis expressed her faith in God on Twitter/X.
God is good all the time. Even in the midst of an evil world.
Psalm 91. ❤️

Willis initially accused Ellis of racketeering, and of soliciting an officer to break their oath during a subcommittee meeting for the Georgia Senate Judiciary in 2020. She pleaded guilty instead to the charge of false statements. She was sentenced to five years probation, and she had to pay $5,000 as restitution. She will have to perform 100 hours of community work and write an apology to Georgians, including those who think Willis’s claim is a complete hoax.
Ellis is now in the company of Sidney Powell and former Trump lawyer Kenneth Chesebro. Scott Hall, a bail bondsman, has also pleaded guilty on lesser charges.
Ellis must testify “truthfully” at all hearings or trials against his co-defendants, and “fully cooperate” with the prosecution.

The judge also issued a gag order, which stipulated that she could not have contact with the codefendants or post anything about the case on social media.
