According to an excerpt from Jonathan Karl's upcoming book, "Betrayal: The Final Act of the Trump Show," former Donald Trump attorney Jenna Ellis also penned a legal memo detailing how former Vice President Mike Pence could overturn the 2020 presidential election.

While it was previously reported that attorney John Eastman had provided the Trump White House with what has become known as the "Coup memo," the new report from ABC's notes Ellis also provided legal guidance.

According to the report, "Ellis, in the memo, outlined a multi-step strategy: On Jan. 6, the day Congress was to certify the 2020 election results, Pence was to send back the electoral votes from six battleground states that Trump falsely claimed he had won. The memo said that Pence would give the states a deadline of '7pm eastern standard time on January 15th' to send back a new set of votes, according to Karl."

The report continues, "Then, Ellis wrote, if any state legislature missed that deadline, 'no electoral votes can be opened and counted from that state,'" adding, "Such a scenario would leave neither Biden nor Trump with a majority of votes, Ellis wrote, which would mean 'Congress shall vote by state delegation' -- which, Ellis said, would in turn lead to Trump being declared the winner due to Republicans controlling the majority of state delegations with 26."
