Former President Donald Trump’s case in Georgia involves 19 Republicans working with the Trump campaign, and some of them are caving under pressure.
While some of Trump’s co-defendants are holding the line and going through the process, some are accepting plea deals and entering pleas of “guilty.” Last week, Sidney Powell and Kenneth Chesbro made deals, and bail bondsman Scott Graham Hall was the first to plead guilty last month.
Jenna Ellis became the third former Trump attorney (following Sidney Powell and Kenneth Chesebro) to plead guilty in the Georgia election case on Tuesday.
As a part of the plea deal, Ellis will have to serve 5 years of probation and pay $5000 in restitution to the Georgia Secretary of State within 30 days.
Former Trump White House chief of staff Mark Meadows, meanwhile, has reportedly been granted immunity to testify under oath in the Department of Justice’s election interference case against Trump.
Georgia Democratic Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis used a Georgia racketeering statute to accuse the former president and his team of criminal activity regarding the 2020 election and Trump’s efforts to prove that the voting was faulty.
The liberal media, as usual, is trying to spin the case involving the Trump team’s efforts to expose the voting irregularities in Georgia.
The Huffington Post reports:
MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough on Wednesday spelled out how it was all fun and games for Donald Trump’s lawyers as they assisted the former president in his alleged efforts to overturn his 2020 election defeat… until it wasn’t.
“This is sort of the ‘Christmas Story’ metaphor that I’m sure every great legal mind across America has been thinking, the BB gun,” said Scarborough. “It’s all a lot of fun until it puts somebody’s eyes out.”
Trump’s lawyers, in the aftermath of his 2020 election defeat, were running around thinking, per Scarborough: “Oh, look what he’s saying, he’s getting away with it, this is fun, we’re getting to own the libs, we’re getting to own the press.’”
But it came crashing down for them when they saw charges.
“It may have been a shock to some of these lawyers, but if you try to overturn an American election, well, the law is coming after you. We are a nation of laws, not a nation of men,” said Scarborough.
“It’s one thing to be making shit up outside of a courtroom,” he added. “It’s quite another to walk into that courtroom and get five to 10 years.”
Only four of the 19 defendants have caved to the plea deal, leaving 15 holding the line to defend themselves in court, including Trump himself.
Painting the defendants in this light is far from accurate, as only four have been dealing with the prosecution and the most recent is a surprise.
Before her plea deal acceptance, AP reported that Ellis was defiant, posting in August on X, formally known as Twitter, “The Democrats and the Fulton County DA are criminalizing the practice of law. I am resolved to trust the Lord.”
During the election, Trump questioned the unlikely surge in votes for Joe Biden and questioned as well whether all the votes for Trump had actually been included in Georgia.
Other defendants are Rudy Giuliani, John Eastman, Jeffrey Clark, Ray Smith, Robert Cheeley, Michael Roman, David Shafer, Shawn Still, Stephen Cliffgard Lee, Harrison William Prescott Floyd, Trevian C. Kutti, Cathy Latham, Scott Graham hall, and Misty Hampton.
Former Chief of Staff Meadows, who was charged, will be testifying in the proceedings as he has been granted immunity.
The former president has posted many times about the proceedings in Georgia, last week referring, for example, to the fact that Sidney Powell, although touted as a “Trump lawyer” by the liberal media, was never, in fact, his lawyer.
“Sidney Powell was one of millions and millions of people who thought, and in ever increasing numbers still think, correctly, that the 2020 presidential election was RIGGED AND STOLLEN, AND OUR COUNTRY IS BEING ABSOLUTELY DESTROYED BECAUSE OF IT!!!”
“Despite the Fake News reports to the contrary, and without even reaching out to ask the Trump Campaign, MS. POWELL WAS NOT MY ATTORNEY, AND NEVER WAS. In fact, she would have been conflicted.”
Trump continued in his post:
“Ms. Powell did a valiant job of representing a very unfairly treated and govermentally abused General Mike Flynn, but to no avail. His prosecution, despite the facts, was ruthless. He was an innocent man, much like many other innocent people who are being persecuted by this now fascist government of ours, and I was honored to give him a full pardon!”
As Trump and most of his team hang in the proceedings in Georgia, fighting to bring the case to completion and show the charges to be false, therefore themselves to be not guilty, in the House, Mike Johnson of Louisiana clinched the nomination for Speaker, and there is a light at the end of that process as primaries near.
