The Trump campaign’s senior legal adviser, Jenna Ellis, took to the media at a heated press conference Thursday, accusing reporters of failing to serve as “impartial jurors” in the court of public opinion while reminding them that their personal opinions were irrelevant

Trump’s legal team held a press conference in Washington to take stock of ongoing legal challenges related to the presidential election Ellis took the podium and began by berating a reporter who shouted a question to Trump attorneys Rudy Giuliani and Sidney Powell, who had just completed lengthy remarks

“Excuse me we’re not up to questions right now we’re not up to questions right now,” Ellis chided the reporter before launching into his media comments. / p>

“What you heard, I’m sure, in the fake papers tomorrow will be one of two things. Either we haven’t presented enough evidence or we’ve talked too long,” said Ellis “What you’ve heard now is basically an opening statement This is what you can expect when we get to court to have a full trial on the merits, to actually show that evidence in court and prove our case This is not an episode of “Law & Order” in which everything is neatly packed in 60 minutes “

Ellis then said reporters who ‘ignored’ widespread allegations of electoral fraud had ‘clearly’ never been court reporters because it took time to properly present the evidence

<p we do here, "said Ellis" Let me be very clear that our goal is to ensure that we preserve and protect electoral integrity "

Ellis told media reporters who ignored or rejected her to look in the mirror

“If your network of fake news doesn’t cover this or allow you to cover it fairly and accurately, you should ask yourself why this is an absolutely legitimate legal basis,” he said. she said, stressing that she would be able to fire most journalists as jurors in a hypothetical public opinion tribunal due to biased coverage

“I would be allowed to do that, because of the false media coverage you provide You are not impartial jurors and as long as you do not step down from your role as a journalist and go to a room hearing and you are a judge on a bench, who has sworn to be impartial in our separation of powers, then your opinion is not It matters, says Ellis “Facts matter, truth matters and if you are fair reporters you will cover this fairly and appropriately and you will allow coverage from our legal team”

Ellis was not done, accusing reporters of only covering “in the margins” and speculating on how the press would frame Thursday’s press conference

“I’ve seen all of you taking pictures right now and I can predict what your headlines will be. If you are unwilling to talk about the evidence that has been presented, this is absolutely unacceptable by journalistic standards”, said Ellis “The American people deserve to know what we have discovered”

Ellis urged reporters to accurately cover the claims of the Trump campaign for the sake of democracy in America

“You, the press, must cover this fairly and you must know that it matters for electoral integrity and for the future of our nation,” she said.
