WASHINGTON – The lawyer who worked on it Donald Trump’s Election Challenges she says she is leaving the Republican Party after reports that an RNC official described her allegations of election fraud as a “joke”.
“The Republican Party has failed Donald Trump and true conservatives under the leadership of the swamp,” attorney Jenna Ellis tweeted Monday about the latest dispute between Trump loyalists and the GOP leadership, especially Republican National Committee.
In an email in November, RNC chief adviser Justin Riemer said Ellis and his fellow Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani were pushing meaningless conspiracy theories about election proceedings in President Joe Biden’s victory, according to a new book by author Michael Wolff.
“What Rudy and Jenna are doing is a joke and they are laughing at them out of court,” Riemer said in an email. “They deceive millions of people who think the president will somehow win this.”
Numerous state officials and election judges were rejected Trump’s allegations of voter fraud.

Ellis, who discussed her decision to leave the GOP in Real America’s Voice and Newsmax, said Riemer’s e-mail proves that Republican officials did not fight hard enough for Trump.
Ellis, Giuliani, and allies have called for Rimmer’s removal, but he remains RNC’s chief adviser.
“I’m leaving the Republican Party until the Republican Party returns home to the Conservatives,” Ellis told Newsmax.
In a written statement to the Post, Riemer said he led the RNC’s legal team in more than 55 lawsuits on behalf of Trump’s re-election and “any suggestion that I did not support President Trump or that I did everything in my power to support the RNC. Efforts to elect President Trump are false. “
Riemer did not deny that he considered other legal efforts to have no merit.
“I will now say publicly what I said privately at the time,” he said.
