Jenna Ellis, Trump’s former attorney, who famously parted ways with the GOP and has become one of its staunchest critics, spoke with conservative commentator Dinesh D’Souza to discuss the ways in which President Joe Biden is making a mockery of – and flouting – the rule of law on numerous fronts.
In the wake of Biden’s disastrous withdrawal of US troops from Afghanistan and his handling of the border crisis, Ellis made the case for how Biden could be held accountable by conservatives who oppose his seemingly unimpeded efforts to impose his rule and clamp down on American civil liberties.
“There’s so much going on. I mean, Biden is producing disasters, it seems, on every front,” said D’Souza. “He has got the border crisis going. And then he’s got all this extravagant spending that he’s pushing on one side, and then we’ve got the Afghan disaster. I mean, it seems hard that he could achieve so much catastrophe in a few months.”
He added: “When we think back to Jimmy Carter, he was a complete nincompoop, but of course his disasters were spread out over four years. What do you think is the… if you had to name the single most alarming and disturbing thing that Biden has done with maybe the longest term consequences, what would that be and why?”
“I think overall his absolute abuse for executive power is going to have the longest-term consequences when he is clearly flouting the rule of law,” replied Ellis. “He’s not staying within the margins of the constitution openly and willingly. Then that shows that he’s not willing to actually be the commander in chief of the United States of America.”
“He’s just a tyrant and tyrants of course will have arbitrary, and completely capricious decisions,” she continued. “That’s what we’ve seen with the disaster that’s going on in Afghanistan. That’s what we’re seeing now with these vaccine mandates that he’s even contemplating that at the federal level, there are so many different abuses that if he is not reined in by the Supreme Court and by federal courts to say, ‘no, we don’t have a tyrant in the United States of America,’ that will have the longest-term precedential consequence.”
During the show, D’Souza brought up the topic of the January 6th protesters who were arrested for their actions on Capitol grounds, noting that the FBI has since disclosed that the effort was not in fact a “coordinated attack, which it would have to be to qualify as a coup or an insurrection.”
D’Souza noted: “There is no such thing as 10 guys independently launching individual coups. On the one hand, I’m tempted to say, ‘wow, they finally get the message. But a part of me says, I wonder why the FBI is making this disclosure.’ Could it be that the FBI itself had an inordinate role in orchestrating these attacks just as it had a very big role in the Whitmore kidnapping scheme? And could it be that the FBI wants to shut down and attempt to connect the dots? So people don’t go, ‘Was this really something that you incited? Was this an insurrection really led by the federal bureau of investigation?’”
“I think those are all very reasonable questions and the American people deserve to know the truth,” replied Ellis. “They deserve to know what was, if any, the FBI’s role. I think that the last five years with President Trump has caused a lot of undermining of our trust in government institutions that they’re telling us the truth, that they’re being transparent.”
“The fact that we don’t have any sort of disclosure about anything that happened with Ashli Babbitt is just remarkably a lack of transparency in the FBI and all of these invest investigative regulatory agencies that frankly work for us and they are supposed to do the business of justice,” Ellis continued. “What we’re seeing here is that there is no justice.”
“There is no truth-seeking,” said Ellis. “There’s only an agenda and it’s a political one at best. And so when you look at the political prisoners, that are being held without bail and many of these people are either being far vastly overcharged or they’re being held on a simple misdemeanor. It’s the Democrats who have screamed for a long time about bail reform and yet when it comes to a political controversy that fits within their narrative, they’re certainly more than happy to say, oh, these quote, unquote, ‘insurrectionists need to be held without bail.’”
“And again, this is a failure ultimately of the judicial branch,” said Ellis. “And it’s up to the branch that is supposed to be the nonpolitical branch to make sure to hold the others accountable.”
Ellis concluded that the only way for conservatives to hold Biden and the Democrats accountable was to “make sure Biden is impeached and held to the highest constitutional standard that we as Americans can expect from our leader” once Republicans take back the House of Representatives in 2022.
