[Jenna Ellis, a former senior legal adviser to Donald Trump’s 2020 presidential campaign] signed a legal acknowledgment that “she made a number of public statements about the November 2020 presidential election that were false” and did so with a “reckless state of mind” and with “a selfish motive,” according to documents released by Colorado’s Office of Attorney Regulation Counsel. . . .
Ellis and her attorney deemed the outcome a success, noting that she did not lose her law license in Colorado. She is required to pay $224 as part of the stipulation.
“This was politically motivated from the start from Democrats and Never Trumpers,” Ellis said in a statement to The Washington Post on Thursday. “They ultimately failed to destroy me and failed in their attempt to deprive me of my bar license. I’m glad to have this behind me and remain in good standing in the State of Colorado.”
