Are the Trump plea deals a warning sign?

I haven't seen as much as I expected on the Trump associate plea deals happening in Georgia from conservatives media.  There's a lot of plea deals happening and as a Trump supporter, you might have reason to worry.  Personally, I don't think it's the case, or that it's still too early to worry.  You just have to remind yourself that when these charges were brought, how spurious they were regarded as being. That hasn't really changed. It's very possible that these plea deals are all a way of the prosecutors saving face since the details of the plea deals seem awfully lenient, attorney Jenna Ellis is a case in point:

In exchange for her cooperation, Ellis pleaded guilty to one count of aiding and abetting false statements and writings. The count stems from her testimony before a Georgia Senate subcommittee on Dec. 3, 2020. Along with co-defendants Rudy Giuliani and Ray Smith, Ellis “knowingly, willingly, and unlawfully” made false statements about election fraud in Georgia, according to her new charging document.

Under the terms of the agreement, Ellis must serve five years probation, 100 hours of community service and pay $5,000 in restitution to the Georgia Secretary of State’s office. She agreed to testify truthfully when called, provide documents and other evidence, refrain from posting about the case on social media and to pen an apology letter to Georgia voters.
That seems awfully light sentencing for a massive "conspiracy", even for a plea deal. The real purpose might be to achieve the talking points for the election, draw out the overall case, and quietly let the media around plea deals diffuse quietly down the road.  There's nothing directly implicating president Trump at this point, likely even with these supposed plea deals. 

You might also be wondering why there are plea deals even happening. You have to remember that the state can bankrupt you, spending years in court trying to wear out your finances, They can literally crush you and a lot of these defendants are not Trump-level wealthy.  The evil underlying that reality is of far greater concern than even the potential 2024 presidency of Donald Trump. Nevertheless, this so far, is just the latest eventual failure of Democrats to derail a presidential candidate they have unsuccessfully been trying to derail since 2015.
