Jenna Ellis Trump Legal Advisor
In November 2019 she was appointed by President Donald Trump as his Senior Legal Advisor at Trump 2020 Campaign.
It is alleged that Trump began seeking her legal counsel regarding his impeachment after seeing her defend him on cable news shows. She even counseled him on drafting anti-impeachment missive to Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the House.
After the letter was released she told PJ Media; “I reviewed it last night but it’s 100% him. It’s perfect. It’s everything Americans are feeling and thinking about this unconstitutional impeachment scam. It’s so important, as the president said, to get the truth on the record since he was denied meaningful input and due process in the House.”
Prior to becoming a senior legal adviser for the president, she was a member of Trump’s 2020 media advisory board, a collection of TV and radio surrogates for the president and campaign that had been overseen by Trump campaign communications hand Mark Serrano.
Jenna Ellis Trump Critic
Prior to joining Trump legal team, Jenna was not always Trump’s supporter as in early 2016 she was one of his toughest critics and deeply opposed his candidacy.
According to CNN KFile review she repeatedly slammed then-candidate Trump as an “idiot,” who was “boorish and arrogant,” and a “bully” whose words could not be trusted as factually accurate. She called comments he made about women “disgusting,” and suggested he was not a “real Christian.”
In March 2016 she posted on Facebook; “I could spend a full-time job just responding to the ridiculously illogical, inconsistent, and blatantly stupid arguments supporting Trump but here’s the thing: his supporters DON’T CARE about facts or logic. They aren’t seeking truth. Trump probably could shoot someone in the middle of NYC and not lose support. And this is the cumulative reason why this nation is in such terrible shape: We don’t have truth seekers; we have narcissists.”
On November 18, 2020 in a statement to CNN she said she has since changed her opinion about Trump as she has learnt she was completely wrong about Trump back then.
“It’s no secret that I did not support Donald Trump early in the primary process in 2015, like many others who didn’t know him, and I’ve always been straightforward with my opinions and I’ve always admitted when my opinion changes. I am glad to have learned that I was completely wrong about Trump back then and I’ve said that over and over publicly, as I saw him keeping his promises, and then eventually getting to know him personally.
I appreciate KFILE showing clearly through past statements that I think for myself, and that my mind was changed based on fact and personal knowledge. President Trump is a sincere Christian, the best president in modern history, and made and kept his promises to the American people. I am proud to stand with him and his goals for the future of this country and all of its citizens.”
In April 2016 while appearing on a radio interview she said; “Why should we rest our highest office in America, on a man who fundamentally goes back and forth and really cannot be trusted to be consistent or accurate in anything.”

Jenna Ellis LGBT
Jenna is Anti-LGBT community, her book “The Legal Basis for a Moral Constitution” complains that the Supreme Court “told the LGBT community that their homosexual lifestyle was not just legal privately, but morally validated openly through government recognition and social celebration and therefore equally as valued as heterosexual unions.” This is a response to the 2015 Supreme Court decision in Obergefell v. Hodges that legalized same-sex marriage nationwide.
In 2016 after the mass shooting that left 49 dead and 53 injured at Pulse, a gay nightclub in Orlando she wrote a column that condemned the massacre, but bemoaned that it was being used to dignify homosexuality.
“I’m disappointed conservatives are acquiescing to the LGBT agenda. Let me be clear—the Orlando shooting was absolutely terrible and tragic. But the response to this tragedy should not be embracing and advocating for gay rights.” The article was titled “Two Wrongs Do Not Make an LGBT Right.”
Brian Stelter Jenna Ellis – Jenna Ellis CNN
On June 14, 2020 while appearing on CNN for an interview with Brian Brian Stelter, she was asked about the Trump campaign’s lawsuit against CNN, a cease-and-desist letter Ellis signed demanding CNN retract and apologize for a SSRS poll showing Trump trailing Democrat Joe Biden by 14 points, and Trump’s tweet Saturday urging Comcast (“Concast”) subscribers to switch providers because it owns MSNBC and NBC News.
Ellis argued that Trump’s Comcast tweet was “an opinion”. “He is also a citizen. No, he is the first one to actually use, to use his platform as an American citizen to be able to call out the fake news media.” Stelter cut in: “You understand that someday you’re going to regret this, right? Someday you’re going to regret this, when your kids and grandkids look back at this time, and you use slurs and smears like ‘fake news’ to hurt news outlets.”
Ellis said she wouldn’t regret her comments, adding, “You’re not trying to do your job — you’re not a journalist, Brian. You’re an activist. That’s the problem. You have an agenda, and your agenda is anti-Trump. The American people see through that, and they are very grateful that this president is finally holding the fake news media accountable because you’re activists. You’re not reporting fact and truth.”

When conservative Trump critic Tom Nichols cited the part of the interview where Stelter said Ellis will regret this, she accused him of endorsing “sexist rhetoric,” a curious charge repeated in a statement from the Trump campaign. She also tried to rebut CNN’s survey by linking to another poll.
There is spin and then there is trying to refute a national poll showing your boss down 14 points by pointing to a poll of your boss and Biden being statistically tied in Arkansas. pic.twitter.com/9t2g4Y7g13

Hey @brianstelter … still wanna stand by CNN’s junk science? None of the polls except yours show such false numbers.
NOTE: Earlier I tweeted a different poll than what I cited today on CNN. Updated. Because I actually correct things, unlike CNN. 😉 https://t.co/p7ks4zrqj8
