One of the lawyers on former President Donald Trump’s legal team, Alina Habba, did an interview with Breitbart News where she revealed that a big part of their plan to fight back against the federal charges filed against him is to “depose people” for the upcoming trial. The interview was from the outlet’s radio program on SiriusXM Patriot 125 with host Alex Marlow.
“We also need a fair opportunity to depose people and see what their answers are to some of the things we have questions about,” she said during the show.
“Pre-trial depositions are typically more limited in criminal trials, and are usually be granted by a judge only in circumstances where a witness is unlikely to be available to testify in court during the trial itself. However, Habba said she wanted more information about the FBI raid on Mar-a-Lago, among other topics that may relate to constitutional issues that the defense is expected to raise in challenging the prosecution’s case,” the report stated.
The former president’s attorney promised she would get her hands on audio recordings of the conversation with a journalist that was referred to in Smith’s indictment, where Trump seemingly made a reference to a sensitive document.
“There will be an explanation for everything, I assure you of that,” she told Marlow.
Habba heaped praise on Trump for being wise and using the legal system to defend himself and to stand up for the Constitutional prerogatives of the office he once held, going on to say that he’s spent a significant amount of time doing research about the law concerning his cases.
And that is one of many reasons people love Trump. He’s an “every man” despite being a billionaire. And when he faces a new challenge in an area where he is not well versed, he takes the time to dig into it and learn as much as he can about it, while also surrounding himself with experts who can help him make solid decisions.
“She added that Special Counsel Jack Smith’s claim that Trump had directed that documents with sensitive information be packed and transported out of the White House, among many boxes filled with other documents, was ridiculous,” Breitbart reported.
“By no means was Donald Trump filling up a U-Haul, trying to scurry away [with] documents. I mean, it’s ridiculous. It’s a complete ridiculous theory, and it’s a ridiculous indictment,” Habba remarked later in the show.
Habba referred to Special Counsel Jack Smith as a “Democrat activist,” commenting that it would be just as unfair if she were to prosecute cases related to Hillary Clinton or Joe Biden, due to her political allegiances.
The attorney finished up the interview with Marlow by saying, “she became acquainted with Trump after being a member of one of his clubs, and then became his lawyer. Asked about the potential difficulty of being Trump’s lawyer, especially when left-wing groups attempt to disbar many of the attorneys who represent the former president, Habba said she was prepared to take the abuse: ‘I don’t mind being a punching bag… because what we’re doing is so important.'”
