Newsmax Hires Trump Advisers Jenna Ellis & Hogan Gidley As Contributors
Former President Donald Trump‘s campaign’s legal adviser Jenna Ellis and Trump’s deputy White House press secretary Hogan Gidley have joined the right-wing TV network Newsmax, the company announced Monday.
Gidley will be joining the network as a political analyst, while Ellis will be a commentator for the 2022 and 2024 elections.
“Few know the media, Washington, and the future of the GOP better than Hogan Gidley, and we’re glad to have him on Newsmax to offer our viewers his valuable insights,” Christopher Ruddy, CEO of Newsmax, said. “Jenna Ellis brings a sharp mind and pointed legal commentary and constitutional analysis to the workings of our court system as it works to defend our liberties and freedoms. She is a strong addition to our growing lineup.”
Ellis led the Trump legal team’s challenge to the November election by falsely claiming massive voter fraud. Newsmax, which has been sued repeatedly for broadcasting election conspiracy theories, made it clear that the views of the contributors do not reflect the network’s view on the November election.
“Newsmax has accepted the 2020 vote results as legal and final,” a spokesperson from the Newsmax said. “While some people that appear on Newsmax may hold a different opinion, our editorial position remains the same.”
