Former Trump attorney Jenna Ellis, now the host of a popular show on Salem Podcast Network and a Newsmax TV contributor, said decertifying Arizona would be an “important step to correcting the record” with respects to the 2020 Presidential Election.
Amid growing calls for Arizona to decertify the results of the 2020 Presidential Election following a forensic audit of Maricopa County, which revealed extremely high numbers of suspicious ballots and voters that far exceed Joe Biden’s supposed margin of victory, former Trump attorney and Constitutional lawyer Jenna Ellis said decertification would be an “important step to correcting the record.”
The statement came after Arizona Senator Wendy Rogers unveiled new signatories of a letter calling for a 50-state election audit, decertification of those elections where appropriate, floating the possible convening of the US House of Representatives to remedy the fraud found in the 2020 election. A total of 138 legislators from multiple states across America signaled their support for the remedies raised in the letter.
Monica Matthews responded to Senator Roger’s tweet with a message directed at Jenna Ellis, writing “who was it that said this wasn’t a remedy?” to which another user responded, “Awesome because I was seriously disappointed in @JennaEllisEsq for saying that. Disingenuous at best.”
Ellis responded to the tweets, writing “decertification is totally different than reinstatement. The former isn’t a remedy in and of itself (but an important step to correcting the record), and the latter is not constitutionally sound. I can’t speak for anyone else, but I’ve been consistent in my analysis.”

While some challenge Ellis on whether President Trump could be legally reinstated as President, it seems as though those on either side of the legal matter agree that decertification of states with elections found to be fraudulent is important.
Along with now hundreds of state legislators, conservative figures, and President Donald Trump, Constitutional lawyers have signaled their support for a state to decertify their election if fraud puts the original results in question. In July, Constitutional attorney John Eastman revealed a path for the Arizona State legislature to legally decertify a fraudulent election in Arizona. “We don’t have to live with a fraudulent election,” said Eastman on Steve Bannon’s War Room podcast.
