Sidney Powell and Rudy and Jenna Ellis and others really should be disbarred for this whack job approach.

No need - nobody will hire them again anyway.

Wait, maybe there are 73 million who would, never mind

I'm not sure Jenna is even currently admitted to any State Bar.

But a review of her professional history, as well as interviews with more than a half-dozen lawyers who have worked with her, show that Ms. Ellis, 36, is not the seasoned constitutional law expert she plays on TV.

Since she graduated law school in 2011, nothing in her record in the courtroom — limited mostly to appearances in state court as a prosecutor or as counsel for clients charged with assault, prostitution, theft and domestic abuse — shows any time spent litigating election law cases.

She holds herself out as an expert on the Constitution based on her self-published book and her teaching of pre-law classes to undergraduates. She has never appeared in federal district or circuit court, where most constitutional matters are considered, according to national databases of federal cases, and does not appear to have played a major role in any cases beyond her criminal and civil work in Colorado.

Craig Silverman, a lawyer in Denver who used to host a radio show on legal matters and current events that Ms. Ellis occasionally appeared on, described her as “an attorney of scant accomplishment.”

In 2015 she joined Colorado Christian University as an affiliate faculty member and published her book, “The Legal Basis for a Moral Constitution: A Guide for Christians to Understand America’s Constitutional Crisis,” in which she lamented how the country had lost its way.

Quote:
The Trump campaign paid Ellis $3,900 in December 2019, then paid her almost $140,000 in October 2020 for legal consulting fees.

As of the start of December 2020, the Trump campaign and its allies had initiated around 50 election-related lawsuits, however, Ellis had not joined any of these lawsuits on paper or in court. This led Jeremy Peters and Alan Feuer of the New York Times to describe Ellis as mostly doing "public relations" work for the Trump campaign.

If Trump fired Powell, who's paying her to keep filing her bat#### crazy suits? Is she actually doing work on behalf of anyone or is she just doing it for the hell of it?

lets be honest the main reason she was hired is that she is visibly a graduate of the Jenna Jameson school of law, Donny has a type, it isnt subtle or understated, just a #### ton of bleach blonde hair and 10 or 15lbs of silicon, most of us grow out of that in our 20's, he never did.
The KGB must have been astounded at how easily he can be led by the nose.

She probably wants to become Hannity and just get to shout at people on TV. Highly paid troll sounds like a pretty good career.

I dunno, it's just me, but I think we can discuss women, no matter how deplorable, in ways other than disparaging them by the looks?

More corrupt shenanigans from the Trump administration. I assume Biden can probably fire these clowns as soon as he takes over and then re-hire all the people that Trump let go?

https://www.politico.com/news/2020/1...members-442892

Quote:
The White House removed nine members of the Pentagon's Defense Business Board on Friday and installed people loyal to President Donald Trump in their place, including presidential allies Corey Lewandowski and David Bossie. The firings marked the latest effort by the Trump administration to clean out the Defense Department in the final weeks of the president's term.

Members of the board received a brief email from Joshua Whitehouse, the White House liaison to the Department of Defense, that simply said, “if you are receiving this e-mail, your membership on the Defense Business Board has expired or is coming to an end.”

"A number of board members have been terminated with a form letter. In my experience, I was very surprised that the White House would, at the eleventh hour, adjust an advisory board that for 19 years has had a record of nonpartisan support with the department," Michael Bayer, who until today was board chair, told POLITICO.

"This kind of a move really will weigh heavily on people in the future and their willingness to serve on these outside advisory boards if they're going to be subjected to political loyalty tests. It's unprecedented. I'm just saddened," he added.
Quote:
A statement by the Pentagon said the members' terms had expired. Yet three former board members who spoke to POLITICO said their tours were not close to ending.

The firings came as a shock to the board members, who had not received any negative feedback or warning prior to their termination. One former board member lamented the move, noting that the board “has never been political, ever.”

“You are talking about 15, 20 executives, business leaders, government leaders, who are giving their time to serve the nation and not even a thank you note,” said the person, who asked not to be named. “It’s just about simple gratitude and appreciation for people.”
"I had no indication this was coming. It was a form letter going to a large number of people," Bayer said.
