A lawyer who was at the heart of the Stop The Steal campaign, Jenna Ellis, has sensationally chosen to leave the Republican Party.
Her decision comes after Republican National Committee Chair Ronna McDaniel showed utter contempt for her efforts to defend election integrity.
Jenna Ellis, the former member of 45th President Donald Trump’s legal team who – alongside Rudy Giuliani – worked to prove the many credible allegations of widespread voter fraud after the 2020 election, has officially left the Republican Party after its chairwoman, Ronna McDaniel, denied Ellis’s claim that she and the party abandoned President Trump’s fight for election integrity and blocked Ellis on Twitter.National File
We wrote about this story only yesterday, when it was revealed that Ellis had been blocked by McDaniel, and how negative the reaction was from conservatives.
Ellis elaborated on her decision in several interviews.
Here’s one of them.
And here’s the important parts of the transcript.
“All of them, including Ronna McDaniel should resign now,” said Ellis on her Real America’s Voice news show. “Until they do, as of today, I am resigning from the party. I am changing my voter registration, and I am no longer a Republican. Until the party decides that it wants to be conservative again. Even if I stand alone for the truth, I will stand for the truth. A compromised, corrupted majority is not a majority worth being a part of. If we genuinely want to create a more perfect union, we have to stand up for our principles against the corrupted machine of self serving politicians in Washington.”National File
But this wasn’t the only reason she decided to leave.
You’ll notice she mentioned that she implied the party wasn’t conservative.
This isn’t news to most people, as it’s riddled with RINOs like McDaniel, who is the niece of Mitt Romney.
But Ellis called out the party for several failures she believes prove they’re not conservative.
I will not stand and abide by a party that says we have to support everything that comes under the banner of R even though it’s not conservative,” said Ellis. “For Ronna, for example, to tweet in affirmation of Pride month, for this whole infrastructure bill, for what Mitch McConnell said about President Trump in the aftermath of the second impeachment hoax, all of these things are not conserving our principles of liberty and justice for all. They’re not conserving our Constitution. I’m not going to stand by and support a party that doesn’t support my values.National File
For many people, being a conservative doesn’t just mean wanting lower taxes and endorsing a free-market economy.
It also means social conservatism, and not accepting every facet of the progressive agenda beyond the realm of economics, which is what the RINOs do.
So it’s great to see Ellis make clear where she stands.
The National File closed their article with a very revealing note.
We need to find out where all that money went.
