Jenna Ellis, attorney and legal adviser to the Trump campaign, said on Wednesday, Dec. 16, that the “election was stolen from President Trump,” and it was time for legislators in states where election results are in dispute, to take action.
During an interview with Just The News on the “John Solomon Reports” podcast, Ellis said that the nation is witnessing the amount of “corruption and complete lawlessness” that tainted the election. Americans are calling for answers and accountability.
Ellis and her team have held several hearings on election integrity in swing states that featured stunning witnesses and evidence of voting irregularities and fraud.
The leadership in both the House and the Senate of Pennsylvania and other states joined Texas in an interstate election lawsuit brought by the Lone Star State to the Supreme Court.
The lawsuit argued that four battleground states violated the U.S. Constitution by changing their election law by executive branch officials and not the legislature. The suit has since been dismissed.
Earlier this week, the Electoral College gave Democratic candidate Joe Biden more than the 270 electoral votes required to win the election. Republican electors in Pennsylvania, Georgia, Michigan, Wisconsin, Arizona, New Mexico, and Nevada cast alternative slates of votes for President Trump, setting up a “dueling electors” scenario not seen in U.S. elections for decades.
The votes will be counted during a joint session of Congress on Jan. 6, presided over by Vice President Mike Pence.
Ellis urged state legislatures to act to “make sure that the will of the American people is not disenfranchised.”
“There are now admissions from state legislatures that the laws were broken,” she told Newsmax. “So, it’s incumbent upon the state legislatures to take back their delegates and to only certify to Congress by Jan. 6 the slate of electors that actually represents the will of the people in their states.
“And these are Republican-led states. There should be absolutely no reason why they don’t have the courage to do this. … And so even though they may not have signed up for this job when they ran for state legislature, there have been times in every American’s life and in every moment in American history where certain Americans are called upon to continue to preserve and protect our nation and liberty and justice for all,” she continued. “And these Americans may not have realized that that was what they were being called upon to do, but they need to step up, and they need to take courage.”
Ellis added, “If they can’t do that, then we have the most weak Republicans across these six states, and I’m embarrassed to be a part of the Republican Party.”
