Alina Habba, an attorney representing ex-president Donald Trump, expressed that she is “ashamed to be a lawyer” on Thursday after hearing of Trump’s arrest regarding the handling of confidential, top-secret documents.
Habba inferred during an appearance on Fox News’s Jesse Watters Primetime on Thursday that whenever “the walls begin closing in on Biden,” there seems to be some sort of distraction that comes out of the DOJ.
She likened it to a shiny ball used to deflect attention away from whatever you’re protecting. The shiny ball is Trump.
Habba said that Trump’s derangement syndrome is “becoming sick.”
Honestly,” Habba said, “I’m ashamed to be a lawyer right now..”
She said it is evident that there is a dual system of justice, selective prosecution, and persecution, and she is ashamed that this is the situation in our nation. She summed it up by comparing America to Russian “third-world stuff.”
On Thursday night, Trump revealed that he had been indicted concerning the FBI investigation into his possession of secret materials, calling it the “Boxes Hoax.”
Since the FBI confiscated over one hundred sensitive files, including those designated top secret, from Trump’s Mar-a-Lago club in August 2022, prosecutors have examined whether Trump improperly stored classified records.
Subpoenaed in May 2022, Trump returned the remaining secret materials to the National Archives after his January 2022 surrender of 15 boxes of data.
The FBI was alleged to have been “explicitly prohibited” from checking into a storage room at Mar-a-Lago on a scheduled visit in June 2022 to recover the requested files. A letter was subsequently written and signed by Trump’s attorneys, Evan Corcoran and Christina Babb, assuring the prosecution that all sensitive papers had been returned.
More than a hundred secret and top-secret papers, including some from Trump’s Mar-a-Lago storage room, were confiscated in an August 2022 FBI search. Before the FBI’s initial visit in June, Trump is said to have directed staff at his Mar-a-Lago club to move boxes of papers into the storage room.
