Jenna Ellis, a former lawyer for former President Donald Trump, has struck a plea deal with Georgia prosecutors in the election interference case in Georgia, an Atlanta Journal-Constitution reporter said on X social media site Tuesday.
Ellis is the fourth of Trump’s lawyers to strike a plea deal in the case. Rudy Giuliani and John Eastman have all pleaded guilty to charges related to their attempts to overturn the results of the 2020 election in Georgia.
The plea deal comes after Ellis was indicted in June on charges of criminal solicitation to commit election fraud and conspiracy to commit election fraud. She is accused of pressuring Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger to find enough votes to overturn Trump’s loss in the state.
The terms of the plea deal are not yet known. However, it is likely that Ellis will face some form of punishment, such as probation or community service.
Ellis’s plea deal is a significant development in the Georgia election interference case. It suggests that prosecutors are closing in on Trump himself, who is the target of a criminal investigation in Georgia.
