Trump Lawyer Jenna Ellis Tests Positive For COVID-19: Reports

“Jenna Ellis, a lawyer for President Donald Trump, has reportedly tested positive for COVID-19 after attending a White House Christmas party for senior staff last week.  Ellis was a guest of Trump trade adviser Peter Navarro and was photographed not wearing a mask, according to reporting by Axios later confirmed by ABC News. She has been working to overturn the results of the presidential election, saying Monday that she believes she is “doing the right thing for God and my country.” The holiday party now has the potential to become yet another superspreader event hosted by the Trump administration, following a Rose Garden ceremony in late September that has been linked to at least eight cases. Other gatherings, including a debate preparation session and an election night watch party, were also linked to several new cases. An extraordinary number of high-level officials and advisers in Trump’s orbit have come down with the virus in recent months, including the president, his wife, and at least two of his children. Since the start of the crisis, Trump has consistently downplayed the threat of the virus and the necessity of wearing masks in public spaces, a trend that continued even after he was hospitalized for coronavirus symptoms that included difficulty breathing. On Sunday, Trump tweeted that Rudy Giuliani, who has been leading efforts to challenge the results of the presidential election in key states, had also tested posted for COVID-19.
