Former Trump campaign attorney Jenna Ellis reaches $100,000 bond agreement in Georgia

August 22, 2023

Former Trump campaign attorney Jenna Ellis on Tuesday reached a $100,000 bond agreement with Fulton County prosecutors on charges related to the attempt to overturn the 2020 Georgia election.

Ellis is one of 19 co-defendants, along with former President Trump, who were indicted by a grand jury related to attempts to overturn Georgia’s 2020 election. Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis has given each of the co-defendants until Friday to “voluntarily surrender” or face an arrest warrant.

Ellis faces two criminal counts in Georgia, including racketeering which every one of the 19 co-defendants is facing. Ellis is also charged with socializing a public officer to violate their oath. That latter charge is connected to her attendance at a December 3, 2020 Georgia Senate subcommittee hearing.

Earlier this year, Ellis admitted in court to making false statements about the 2020 Presidential election, leading Judge Bryon Large, Colorado’s Presiding Disciplinary Judge, to issue a public censure of Ellis for having “undermined the American public’s confidence in the presidential election, violating her duty of candor to the public.”

Two other co-defenants on Tuesday surrendered at Fulton County jail: former Trump attorney John Eastman, the author of the fake electors scheme, who’d reached a $100,000 bond agreement Monday, and Atlanta bail bondsman Scott Hall, who reached a $10,000 bond agreement on charges that include conspiring to unlawfully access voter data and ballot counting machines at the rural Coffee County election office on January 7, 2021.

On Monday, Trump agreed to a $200,000 bond deal. That evening Trump posted on social media that he’ll be turning himself in at the Fulton County jail on Thursday.

According to reports, ten of the co-defendants have reached bond agreements with Georgia prosecutors, ranging from $10,000 to Trump’s $200,000. Another high-profile co-defendant, Trump attorney Kenneth Chesebro, reached a $100,000 agreement.

Last week, Ellis questioned on social media why Trump’s legal defense fund isn’t paying her bills.

“I was reliably informed Trump isn’t funding any of us who are indicted,” Ellis posted. “Would this change if he becomes the nominee? Why then, not now?”
