Jenna Ellis, the right-wing lawyer who worked on the Trump 2020 campaign, pleaded guilty Tuesday to a criminal charge in the Georgia election interference case.

Ellis is the latest co-defendant of former President Donald Trump to reach a deal with prosecutors, joining Sidney Powell and two others.

The series of recent plea deals in Atlanta District Attorney Fani Willis’ racketeering case signal a growing threat to Trump, who is fighting criminal charges in four separate cases as he runs for president in 2024.

Ellis, 38, pleaded guilty in Fulton County Superior Court to one count of aiding and abetting false statements and writings.

He originally faced two felony counts in Willis’ indictment, which accuses Trump and 18 co-defendants of illegally conspiring to overturn President Joe Biden’s victory in the 2020 election in Georgia.

The 98-page, 41-count indictment alleges that Ellis urged state lawmakers in key states that Biden won to appoint presidential electors who would vote for Trump.
