(ConservativeHub.com) – New leaked videos from the interviews given by Georgia defendants to Fulton County prosecutors in the racketeering case are shedding more light on former President Donald Trump’s alleged attempts to remain in office following the past election.
Jenna Ellis, a former lawyer for the Trump campaign, recounted how during a conversation with then-White House deputy chief of staff Dan Scavino, she had been informed that Trump did not intend to leave the White House “under any circumstances.” Fulton County prosecutors have noted that this testimony was given one day before Ellis accepted the plea deal.
Scavino had reportedly said at the time that they would just “stay in power,” according to Ellis, who pleaded guilty in October to helping make false statements.
ABC News was the first to report the videos that put Trump at the top of the command chain in the efforts to avoid leaving his position of power.
The defendants’ proffer statements further support the narrative that was presented by Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis in her 98-page indictment. Willis has brought charges forward against Trump and 18 other defendants who had played a role in the attempts.
According to reports, Georgia State University law professor Anthony Michael Kreis stated that the indictment was built in a way that supported the claim that Trump was the one on top of all the schemes that related to him retaining power. He added that this sort of evidence helped bolster that theory and it would also be very “d**ning to the good-faith justifications” that Trump’s attorneys and allies had put out.
