JENNA Ellis is known for her work with former President Donald Trump as a legal adviser.
Ellis’ political stance is in question after an email was disclosed criticizing her efforts during the 2020 Presidential Election.
Is Jenna Ellis a Democrat or a Republican?
After an email from a top Republican National Committee lawyer got out disapproving of Ellis’ efforts to change the November election results, Ellis stated she is protesting by leaving the Republican Party.
The announcement was made on Real America’s Voice where Ellis urged RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel and other members to immediately resign for a fresh start and explained she would not return unless they did.
Ellis also claimed that “the Trump team never saw a dime” from their efforts in November and December 2020 when election challenges were going on and millions were raised.
“I am leaving the Republican Party until the Republican Party comes back home to conservatives,” Ellis said during an follow-up appearance on Newsmax.
Who Is Jenna Ellis?
Ellis is an American lawyer who was born on November 1, 1984.
She is known for her work as a member of former President Donald Trump’s 2020 campaign.
She was formerly a district attorney in Colorado and an assistant professor of legal studies at Colorado Christian University.
Ellis self-published a book in 2015 called The Legal Basis for Moral Constitution, which argues that the Bible is the only way to interpret the Constitution of the United States.
Since 2018, she classified herself as a “constitutional law attorney,” however, The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal reported that she did not have the proper experience or background to have this title.
In 2015 and early 2016, Ellis was a critic of Donald Trump and his supporters until he became the Republican nominee for president.
In 2019, Trump hired Ellis as a senior legal adviser but in 2020 he announced that she was part of the legal team that was seeking to overturn President Joe Biden’s 2020 election victory.
Ellis falsely claimed that Trump was the winner of the election and met with lawmakers in several states to play around with pro-Biden presidential electors.
Is Jenna Ellis married?
Ellis was previously married to David Rives, a TV host and podcaster.
The couple married in June 2019 and then reportedly separated months after the wedding in August 2019.
In a now-deleted Facebook post from Ellis, she claimed that the reason for their separation was ignorance towards the church authority and lack of accountability towards their married life.
“As you know, my husband David Rives chose to Separate in August. He refuses all church authority, accountability, or biblical counseling for some very critical issues,” she wrote on Facebook.
“It is time to walk in truth openly and that the body of Christ should encourage my husband toward truth and God, especially because he claims to be in ministry leadership and is ignoring his Christian duty in many respects.”
