(AmericanProsperity.com) – A woman former President Trump once picked to help overturn the 2020 election has recently found a new role. The US Commission on Civil Rights decided to place her on a federal advisory board regarding elections.
Cleta Mitchell, a prominent lawyer, joined Trump and Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger on a phone call on January 2, where Mitchell claimed she found voting inconsistencies in the state. However, Raffensperger denied any fraud and said that Mitchell’s data must be wrong.

Mitchell earned a spot on the Election Assistance Commission’s (EAC) Board of Advisors. The EAC approves voting systems and offers advice on following federal election regulations to local election offices. The Board of Advisors doesn’t directly make policies, but it can recommend guidelines to the EAC.
The Republican lawyer earned her appointment after the GOP members of the commission nominated her, eventually gaining a majority vote for approval. The Civil Rights Commission actually voted to appoint Mitchell back on August 21. Unfortunately, there was no public record of the move until Jessica Huseman, a journalist, tweeted EAC documents showing that on November 3, Mitchell had officially joined the board.
