USA Today reports:
Legal costs over Donald Trump’s alleged attempts to steal the 2020 election have prompted one of his co-defendants to turn to social media to ask why the former president and his donors aren’t doing more to help.
“I was reliably informed Trump isn’t funding any of us who are indicted,” said former Trump attorney Jenna Ellis on the social media platform X, formerly known as Twitter. “Would this change if he becomes the nominee? Why then, not now?”
Ellis on X reposted Trump ally Matt Schlapp, who suggested that other GOP presidential candidates drop out of the Republican primary so that party members can use donations for legal defenses.
NBC News: Ex-Trump lawyer Jenna Ellis, ex-W.H. official Mike Roman and ex-Coffee County GOP chair Cathy Latham have all agreed to bond deals with the Fulton County DA’s office.
Ellis agreed to a $100,000 bond.
Roman agreed to a $50,000 bond.
Latham agreed to a $75,000 bond.

Trump’s been stiffing people his whole life. Are you telling me you didn’t see this coming?

Lol girl, it’s been that way since Trump took office. Just because his betrayal is finally affecting you, now all of a sudden the country is in peril. As if you didn’t do this to yourself. Stfu and enjoy the leopard eating your face. https://t.co/FoR0Ds5rK7

One of the few lawyers who risked her rep is @JennaEllisEsq
Support her GiveSendGo. Also realize 100K will barely pay for a motion to dismiss. Money is not enough here.
We need an army of lawyers who care, believe in the cause, and will work pro bono for those under attack. pic.twitter.com/D99hwqFFTO

Former Trump legal advisor and Rudy Giuliani sidekick @JennaEllisEsq is shocked to discover that Trump has abandoned her and won’t pay a dime for her expensive legal defense as a part of the MAGA plot to steal the 2020 election.
If only she’d listened to this smart woman.
