Yet Another Trump Lawyer Is Scorched by Representing Him

Jenna Ellis, an attorney for Donald Trump, has become the latest lawyer to be punished for their actions while working for the former president.

Ellis has been censured by a Colorado court after she admitted during disciplinary proceedings to misrepresenting evidence about the 2020 election, including falsely claiming it had been “stolen” from Trump.

Ellis is not the first Trump attorney to have faced sanctions—or even criminal prosecution—while defending the former president, but is the first lawyer to admit she misrepresented evidence of widespread voter fraud in the last election.

Other Trump attorneys are also facing disciplinary action after getting involved in the former president’s post-election efforts to overturn the 2020 election results.

In June 2021, Rudy Giuliani had his law license temporarily suspended after a New York court ruled that he made “demonstrably false and misleading statements” about the 2020 election result. Giuliani could still lose his law license after a bar discipline committee in Washington, D.C ruled in December 2022 that he violated at least one professional rule while helping Trump challenge the 2020 election results.

In January 2023, Trump lawyer John Eastman was charged with 11 disciplinary offenses by the State Bar of California for allegedly plotting with the former president a plan “unsupported by facts or law” to overturn the 2020 election results by obstructing the count of electoral votes of certain states. Eastman’s attorney, Randall Miller, told Newsweek in a statement in January that his client disputes “every aspect” of the disciplinary charges filed against him.
