Court filings show Ellis agreed to plead guilty to one felony charge of aiding and abetting false statements and writing. She was appearing in court Tuesday morning to enter the plea.
Ellis, a senior legal adviser to Trump’s campaign, is the fourth to plead guilty of the 19 defendants charged by Willis in August for allegedly engaging in a scheme to overturn Trump’s loss in Georgia’s presidential election. She joins Trump-allied lawyersand and Georgia bail bondsman in accepting a plea deal.
