WASHINGTON - A lawyer who worked on Donald Trump's election challenges says she is leaving the Republican Party in the wake of reports that an RNC official described her election fraud claims as "a joke."

"The Republican Party has failed Donald Trump and true conservatives under swamp leadership," attorney Jenna Ellis tweeted Monday about the latest dispute between Trump loyalists and GOP leadership, particularly the Republican National Committee.

In a November email, RNC chief counsel Justin Riemer said Ellis and fellow Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani were pushing nonsensical conspiracy theories about election procedures in President Joe Biden's victory, according to a new book by author Michael Wolff.

"What Rudy and Jenna are doing is a joke and they are getting laughed out of court," Riemer said in an email. "They are misleading millions of people who have wishful thinking that the president is going to somehow win this thing."

Numerous state election officials and judges rejected Trump's claims of voter fraud.

Ellis, who discussed her decision to leave the GOP on media outlets Real America's Voice and Newsmax, said the Riemer email proves that Republican Party officials did not fight hard enough for Trump.

Ellis, Giuliani, and allies have called for Riemer's removal, but he remains the RNC chief counsel.

"I am leaving the Republican Party until the Republican Party comes back home to conservatives," Ellis told Newsmax.

In a written statement to the Post, Riemer said he led the RNC's legal team in more than 55 lawsuits on behalf of Trump's re-election, and "any suggestion that I did not support President Trump or do everything in my power to support the RNC's efforts to reelect President Trump is false."

Riemer did not deny that he found other legal efforts lacked merit.

"I will say publicly now what I then said privately," he said: "I take issue with individuals who brought lawsuits that did not serve President Trump well and did not give him the best chance in court."

In a sane world the Republican Party would be thrilled to get rid of the whackjob Jenna Ellis. In the Trumpworld Republican Party some high official will probably apologize to her. 

No sign yet that Republicans are tired of taking it up the ass for trumpism.

The best thing that could happen to the republican party is if all the trumpers left.

"The Republican Party has failed Donald Trump and true conservatives under swamp leadership,"

What caused the ridiculous attempt to install Trump as President after losing 'bigly' in the 2020 Presidential election was the law and the US constitution.

"I am leaving the Republican Party until the Republican Party comes back home to conservatives,"

Many true conservatives have already left the Republican party because the party itself turned toward fascism and was putting the needs of their dear Leader above the law. They wanted to invalidate an election simply because they didn't like the results and claimed fraud without a lick of evidence. They grasped at straws in their desperate attempt to hold onto power and came up empty. Now because the Republican party refused to move any further right into a completely fascist political party the fascists within are leaving which is the best thing that could ever happen to them. Hopefully, if all the fascist lovers who worship Donald Trump leave the Republican party it might attract back real conservatives who love the country over any lionized despotic leader.

Many people had erroneously assumed Trump was a true conservative. But while he did attempt to pander to conservatives, the fact is he was not a real conservative-- rather he was a "populist"

There's a difference.

      "I am leaving the Republican Party until the Republican Party comes back home to conservatives," Ellis told Newsmax.

Oh honey you have a long wait and first you have to become a conservative.

Meanwhile over at her twitter account Jeena (ditzy) Ellis is playing the Jesus card and having such a major hair-on-fire event over Ronna (bad girl) McDaniel blocking her, that the likes of Sebastian (trump drooler) Gorka is trying to douse it with inflated flammable praise.
