Jenna Ellis’s ‘Big Lie’ Biography
June 21, 2022 – Republican nominee for Pennsylvania governor Doug Mastriano’s new high-level advisor, Jenna Ellis, played a starring role at today’s Congressional Hearing into the events surrounding the January 6th insurrection at the Capitol. The nation heard how she was at the heart of the conspiracy to overthrow the lawful election results of 2020.
Working hand-in-hand with Donald Trump and Rudy Giuliani, she helped orchestrate and push the false claims the election was stolen in Arizona. Ellis was on multiple calls with Trump and Giuliani to intimidate local officials overseeing the election in an attempt to get them to illegally and falsely claim the election was stolen.
Ellis made multiple claims of fraud that illegal immigrants and dead people voted. When asked by Arizona election officials to produce the evidence, she could not. Rudy Giuliani said they “had a lot of theories, not a lot of evidence”.
It was all a lie.
A lie she helped design to create doubt and uncertainty in our democratic processes so that Trump and his cronies could overthrow the election and destroy our democratic institutions.
But Ellis didn’t stop with January 6th and continues to spread the ‘Big Lie’. She now works for Doug Mastriano as a senior advisor. Mastriano was at the insurrection standing with the traitors who stormed the capital on January 6th.
Together, these two want to end democracy in America. They want to roll back civil liberties and disenfranchise hundreds of thousands of voters. Ellis’s hiring is a calculated effort on both their parts to finish the work they started in 2020 to try to overthrow the election. They both must be stopped now.
