Jenna Ellis, a lawyer on President Trump’s legal team, asserted on Monday that she’s doing ‘the right thing for God’ in her continued efforts to challenge the results of the 2020 election.
Ellis, a professing Christian, was asked by Fox Business host Charles Payne about how she deals with criticisms concerning her legal efforts in overturning the election for Trump.
"My life is in service and honor to the Lord Jesus Christ and so whatever anybody else says really doesn't bother me," Ellis asserted.
"Ultimately at the end of the day, as long as I know that I'm pursuing truth and I'm doing the right thing for God and my country, that's all that matters. So that's what gives me my optimism and my hope,” she continued.
Ellis hopes that she can be a light and inspiration to others regardless of what others may say about them.
"It's all about just who you are as a person made in the image of God and in Christ," she added.
As of Monday, Joe Biden stands ahead of Trump by 7,061,839 popular votes and 72 electoral votes.
Newsweek reports that Trump and his legal team have filed about 40 lawsuits alleging widespread voter fraud in several swing states in hopes that the election would be overturned.
On Tuesday, the state of Texas filed a lawsuit against 4 swing states in the U.S. Supreme Court for allegedly making unconstitutional changes to election laws that he claims skewed the results of the presidential election.
The lawsuit, filed by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, accused the battleground states of exploiting the COVID-19 pandemic “to justify ignoring federal and state election laws and unlawfully enacting last-minute changes, thus skewing the results of the 2020 General Election.”
“Trust in the integrity of our election processes is sacrosanct and binds our citizenry and the States in this Union together,” Paxton said in a statement. “Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin destroyed that trust and compromised the security and integrity of the 2020 election. The states violated statutes enacted by their duly elected legislatures, thereby violating the Constitution.”
“By ignoring both state and federal law, these states have not only tainted the integrity of their own citizens’ vote, but of Texas and every other state that held lawful elections,” he continued. “Their failure to abide by the rule of law casts a dark shadow of doubt over the outcome of the entire election. We now ask that the Supreme Court step in to correct this egregious error.”
