Judge Gregory Lammons of Colorado’s 8th Judicial District approved a request to compel Ellis to travel from her Colorado home to Georgia to testify, CNN reported on Tuesday.

Ellis was subpoenaed in July along with several other Trump allies and legal advisers, including Rudy Giuliani, John Eastman and Cleta Mitchell.

In the July subpoena, shared by Georgia Public Broadcasting, Ellis is identified as “an attorney for the Trump Campaign’s legal efforts seeking to influence the results of the November 2020 election in Georgia and elsewhere.”

  A timeline of how the FBI came to search Trump's Mar-a-Lago as part of an Espionage Act probe Here is a timeline of Trump's dealing with the National Archives, the Department of Justice and missing classified documents. Here is a timeline on the missing Trump papers and how the FBI came to search Mar-a-Lago. Have a tip? Please email us at cdechalus@insider.com and ngaudiano@insider.com. The FBI's search of Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago residence in Florida follows months of allegations that the former president mishandled government records, including reports of him ripping up documents and photos of notes with handwriting resembling his that he reportedly tried to flush down the toilet.

Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis (D) noted actions by Ellis that appear to be “part of a multi-state, coordinated plan by the Trump Campaign to influence the results of the November 2020 election in Georgia and elsewhere.”

Deadline looms for drought-stricken states to cut water use

  Deadline looms for drought-stricken states to cut water use SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Banks along parts of the Colorado River where water once streamed are now just caked mud and rock as climate change makes the Western U.S. hotter and drier. More than two decades of drought have done little to deter the region from diverting more water than flows through it, depleting key reservoirs to levels that now jeopardize delivery and hydropower production. Cities and farms in seven U.S. states are bracing for cuts this week as officials stare down a deadline to propose unprecedented reductions to their use of the water, setting up what’s expected to be the most consequential week for Colorado River policy in years.

Ellis reportedly authored memos advising that then-Vice President Mike Pence disregard the electoral college votes certified by Congress for “contested” states like Georgia, according to the subpoena.

Willis also noted a December 2020 appearance by Ellis before the Georgia Senate, during which she shared a video “that purported to show election workers producing ‘suitcases’ of unlawful ballots from unknown sources, outside the view of election poll watchers.”

The video was shortly thereafter discredited and the fraud claims were dismissed, but the subpoena alleges Ellis continued to make election fraud claims.

Trump will have a hard time building a legal defense team as his legal troubles continue to build, says Alan Dershowitz, who represented Trump."All big firm lawyers have told me that their firms won't let them do it," Dershowitz said in an interview. "The firms won't let them go near any case involving Trump. These are firms that want to continue to have clients, and they know that if they represent Donald Trump, they'll lose a lot of clients.
