Trump Campaign Lawyer Blasts Media: ‘Your Opinion Doesn’t Matter’

Trump lawyer Jenna Ellis

Trump campaign lawyers Jenna Ellis, Rudy Giuliani and Sidney Powell held a press conference on Thursday to provide an update on ongoing legal challenges related to the presidential election.

During the heated conference, the campaigns senior legal adviser Jenna Ellis also blasted the establishment media coverage of the campaign’s fight over the integrity of the presidential election as “fake news”, arguing that every American should want election integrity to be preserved.

She accused reporters of failing to serve as “unbiased jurors” in the court of public opinion and reminded them their personal views are irrelevant.

Breitbart reports: Ellis said the press conference, which featured Trump campaign lawyers Rudy Giuliani and Sidney Powell, was an opening statement so that the American people could understand what the networks “have been hiding and what they refuse to cover.”

“All of your fake news headlines are dancing around the merits of the case and are trying to delegitimize what we’re doing here,” she said. She said the Trump campaign has been working to put together a case that “generally would take years in civil litigation.”

“This is the court of public opinion right now,” she said, dismissing news coverage of the legal fight.

“We’re not trying our case in the court of public opinion, because if we were, we would get unbiased jurors. I would strike 99 percent of you from the jury, and I would be allowed to because of the fake news coverage you provide. You’re not unbiased jurors,” she said.

She added that since journalists were not actual jurors, their opinions did not matter.

“Until you step out of your role as a journalist and actually go into a courtroom and you are a judge on a bench that has sworn an oath to be unbiased in our separation of powers, then your opinion does not matter,” she said.

She expressed confidence in the campaign’s ability to show evidence of corruption when in court:

You, the press, should cover this fairly and should know that this matters to election integrity, and it matters to the future of our nation. So, we have given you an overview. But recognize, this is not a court of law. We will get there and have time and we have constitutional provisions that will step in when we show the corruption and the irredeemably challenge and overturned voters that are absolutely corrupt in all of these counties. It is irredeemably compromised. We will show that. You have to give us that opportunity.

She concluded, “This is just our opening statement. We have opportunity to get there and we have time and we will do that. This is the United States of America and we stand proudly for President Donald J. Trump. Thank you.”


  1. And shes absolutely right Its the facts of the matter that are the basis for the legal case not journalists opinions which are by products of peer group pressure directed from their gruppenfuhrer and pay master

  2. Corporate Media (not the same as News) has described this important event as an SNL Skit.. and people are buying that. Woe for America and Americans.

  3. Those on the Left/Democrats, Liberals, Progressives, the “Fake News” mediums, etc. knowingly/purposely lie, lob false allegations, offer up farfetched/contrived “speculation”, misdirect, & utilize the “fake news” to spread rumors for the express purpose of “gaslighting”, causing chaos, ginning up fear/anger, fanning the flames of dissent, & inciting violence. “Fake News” mediums like CNN, MSNBC, the NYT, BuzzFeed, National Review, The Washington Post, social media platforms like Twitter, Google, Facebook, etc., late night hosts like Bill Maher, Jimmy Kimmel, Stephen Colbert, & the liberal left in Hollywood then purposely, exponentially increase/amplify & telegraph the anger, hatred, & violence of the Left, Progressives, Democrats, & their base against others across the nation/world by to divide, destabilize, & damage the nation, the President, & our citizens. This explains why they are viewed as the Enemies of the American People.

    SHOCKED by the blow-back, they proclaim their innocence while we all know that they are nothing but instigators with their incendiary/despicable reporting. They, like we, all learned in grade school that those who report the news must stick to the facts, “who, what, why, where & when”. Instead, they speculate, manipulate, contrive, edit audio/video, omit, & when all else fails, they fall back on their so called “anonymous sources”.

    Lacking even the slightest modicum of ethics, honor, & integrity, they are best described as intellectual contortionists, they bend/twist reality to fit a narrative of their own creation based on their own personal biases or that of their Elite masters, the Marxist Progressives and Demogogue Democrats ……

    I condemn the Democrat Bolshevik’s party’s culture of hatred, crime (including those against the unborn!), corruption, lawlessness and Anti-Americanism. They are low life dooshbags who spit on everything that is great and wonderful about our country. They continually desecrate the freedom paid for with the blood of heroes. They are the enemy within intent on tearing us apart. ….

  4. Apparently it does….we are being successfully railroaded. Control the election with Venezuelan voting toys and you can destroy the republic.

    The day after the anniversary Lincoln said it, “government of the people, by the people, for the people” is perishing from the earth.

  5. Talking down to Democrat-Neocon presstitutes is a good start.

    The next phase should be public executions for presstitutes for the crime of outright lying and lying by omission.
