Watch: Trump's Attorney Habba Is Out For Blood: 'This Is OUR Country!'
President Trump's attorney Alina Habba is out for blood at the Department of Justice (DOJ) they raided the former president's home in Florida despite the fact that he was fully cooperating. Habba called their fruitless move political theatre and slammed the DOJ for attacking and fabricating a reason to conduct the raid.
Habba first addressed how empty the raid was, "I don't think that they did get him on any legal issue here. And that was the headline on the Wall Street Journal yesterday, which was dead on accurate. You have to have a legal basis. This is not theatrics. This is our country. This is the Constitution. So what we saw was the trail, as in with the Mueller report that you just discussed, that is that they're hiding DOJ memos."
"They like to conceal them. They like to redact them. And then when push comes to shove, they pretend that they're doing us a favor when it's not a favor, it's his constitutional right to say that these documents are declassified. He has that right. He doesn't need to ask anybody else. So what is the basis? He was cooperating."
Trump, who has condemned the search for documents at his oceanside home, filed a motion last week to appoint the special master.
“Law enforcement is a shield that protects Americans. It cannot be used as a weapon for political purposes,” Trump’s legal team said in the filing. “Therefore, we seek judicial assistance in the aftermath of an unprecedented and unnecessary raid on President Trump’s home at Mar-a-Lago.”
In a message on his Truth Social platform on Saturday, Trump reiterated his belief that the raid was politically motivated because he is the “clear frontrunner” in the 2024 Republican presidential primary.
“Federal Judge in Florida just took over the Presidential Records Act case, including the unprecedented, unnecessary, and unannounced FBI/DOJ Raid (Break-In!) of my home, Mar-a-Lago. This assault was done for political purposes just prior to the Midterm Elections (and 2024, of course!),” he said in the posting. “It is a disgrace to our now Third World Nation!”
A federal judge in Florida has indicated that she may appoint a special master to monitor the top-secret documents removed from Trump's home in Florida. It's good news for Trump's defense because the DOJ has proved to be politically biased over the years. Having a special master should level the ground and offer a nonbias outsider to oversee the next steps.
