UPDATE

An RNC spokesperson responds to Jenna Ellis allegations:

“The RNC, including our legal team, fought vigorously for election integrity before, during, and after the 2020 election, spending over $30 million and engaging in over 50 lawsuits. Election integrity is a critical issue we face not only as a Party but also as a country, and our effort continues today as we are engaged in nearly 20 lawsuits backed by a multimillion-dollar investment.”

And here’s a response from Justin Riemer, RNC Chief Legal Counsel:

“I led the RNC legal team in over 55 lawsuits on behalf of the President’s re-election, winning a majority of them, including the only successful post-election lawsuit. Any suggestion that I did not support President Trump or do everything in my power to support the RNC’s efforts to re-elect President Trump is false. I will say publicly now what I then said privately: I take issue with individuals who brought lawsuits that did not serve President Trump well and did not give him the best chance in court. I have spent my entire career working on election integrity, supporting conservative policies, and electing Republicans. This includes serving in the Trump administration and helping elect President Trump at the RNC in 2016 and 2020. My record of fighting for his re-election and for election integrity speaks for itself.”

This is a continuation of her questioning why the RNC didn’t back her and Rudy Giuliani on their legal challenges to the 2020 election:

One thing to note is that a spox for the RNC denied an earlier report in Business Insider that this even happened but now the WaPo is reporting it, too:

She added, “Conservatives are loyal to our principles and our country. Not a party that lies and plays politics”:

The RNC is just “DNC-lite”?

And she wants journos to ask McDaniel these three questions whenever they interview here:
