“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.

Does “truth” have a second, more nefarious meaning I am unaware of?

It's too bad no one takes you seriously. It would be awesome to watch a real time schism in the GQP. Sadly, you have no power or influence. But thanks for trying to cancel them. Every little bit helps.
