Trump’s former senior legal adviser announced she was leaving the Republican Party during a 22-minute monologue on her Real America’s Voice show “Just The Truth” on Monday.
“The truth matters,” began Ellis, who as a member of the Trump legal team pushed the former president’s lies in trying to overturn the 2020 election.
Ellis, who once described Trump as an “idiot,” said Republicans had back-stabbed Trump. She also accused the Republican National Committee of “not championing the issues” that make America great.
“All of them, including Ronna McDaniel, should resign now,” declared Ellis, referring to the RNC chair.
“Until they do, as of today, I am resigning from the party,” she continued. “I am changing my voter registration and I am no longer a Republican until the party decides that it wants to be conservative again.”
“Even if I stand alone for the truth, I will stand for the truth,” she added.
The irony of Ellis comments were not lost on Twitter users:
