Ex-Trump attorney admits statements about 2020 election are false and is censured by judge

A disciplinary judge in Colorado has censured Jenna Ellis, one of Donald Trump’s top attorneys, for boosting the former president’s misinformation regarding the 2020 presidential election. Ellis has signed a stipulation stating that multiple comments she made about the 2020 election violated professional ethics rules barring reckless, knowing or intentional misrepresentations by attorneys. Within the signed stipulation, several of the highlighted false statements were comments made by Ellis on social media, and in television appearances, claiming that the Trump campaign had evidence that the election had been “stolen.”
