Trump lawyer rips special counsel in 'un-American' Trump case ruling

 December 17, 2023

Former President Donald Trump's lawyer Alina Habba criticized special counsel Jack Smith over his "un-American" take in his Washington case.

Habba shared the concern in a recent media interview over the legal battle in the case in against Trump over Jan. 6, 2021.

The comments

“There is some sort of real sense of urgency,” Habba said in an interview. “The only urgency that I can see is that there is an election in November 2024 and they can’t beat him.”

“They can’t beat him in the ballots so they’re gonna have to either, you know, lie, cheat, steal or the newest, is lawfare, put him in jail, tie him up,” she added.

The urgency

"So what you have to argue there is that there is some sort of real sense of urgency. There is an urgency where we have to now bypass the appellate division. We can’t go through the normal course of process in the court system. And let’s just go right up to the Supreme Court," the lawyer argued.

"The only urgency that I can see is that there is an election in November 2024 and they can’t beat him," she continued.

Case on hold

"The judge overseeing former President Donald Trump's federal election interference case in Washington, D.C., has stayed proceedings in the case while the appeals process plays out," ABC News reported.

"Trump's lawyers had requested the proceedings be stayed but special counsel Jack Smith's team opposed an all-out stay, saying they felt certain filings could still move forward to keep the case on track for the March 4 trial date," it noted.

Trump's legal battle is in addition to several other cases he faces in New York, Georgia and Florida.

The controversies have not stopped his popularity, however, as he continues to lead in GOP presidential primary polls.

Trump could face a rematch next year against President Joe Biden as he fights the legal charges against him from Jack Smith and others.
