Trump Attorney Alina Habba Demands Trump Charges Be Dropped — Based On Biden Report That Says Trump Case Much Worse – Mediaite
Trump attorney Alina Habba demanded charges against President Donald Trump be dropped — based on a special counsel report that specifically says Trump’s conduct was much worse than President Joe Biden’s.
Special Counsel Robert Hur’s report on Biden’s handling of sensitive documents dropped Thursday. The good news for Biden is there will be no charges against the president — but the bad news is the report is chock full of damaging asides about him and his memory.
Biden responded to the report Thursday night in a fiery press scrum.
But the report also contained a detailed passage outlining the ways in which Trump’s alleged conduct is much more serious than Biden’s.
On Thursday night’s edition of Fox News Channel’s Hannity, Habba cited the report to demand that charges “absolutely” need to be dropped against her client:
SEAN HANNITY: And now with reaction is Trump legal spokesperson Olena Haba. Legally speaking? The question I was just asking Greg Jarrett. And by the way, thank you for joining us, Selina. The question I was asking him, now that this is their standard, that you can willfully retain and handle classified documents and not be punished for it. Does that open up a legal window for you and your legal team to go in and say, you know, we need equal application of our laws here?
ALINA HABBA: Absolutely. I think the one thing that we learned today from special counsel her is that there is, in fact, and not that we didn’t know it. Sean. Two systems of justice.
One, if you’re a Republican, one if you’re a Democrat. We’ve seen it time and time again. You’ve spoken of it the way that this can be used. And what has become obvious that they haven’t really thought about is they try and look impartial. They try and say, okay, we’re going to raid Mar-a-lago. Oh, maybe that was a little too much. Let’s peel it back.
Let’s look at Biden’s documents. One thing they’re forgetting that is so clear to me as an attorney is that, number one, President Trump has one thing that Biden as Senator Biden, as Vice President Biden didn’t have. The Presidential Records Act, something that has shielded President Clinton.
So when you’re looking at this dual system of justice, they’re going to have to face the music when we’re in court. They’re going to have to answer questions. And you know what? We shouldn’t even be going to court. Honestly, I agree with my client 100%.
They need to drop charges and let Americans believe that we’re not going to be treated differently depending on our politics. I don’t think they’re capable of it. I think they have severe Trump Derangement Syndrome.
But, you know, it’s very obvious what’s happening here. But I do want to thank special counsel Hur for making it very clear to the American public that this man can’t even remember when his son was passed.
And more importantly, Sean, did you see what he said today in the press conference? He doubled down on it and said, I didn’t think I needed to answer that question.
Well, that’s another problem that we haven’t spoken about. You’re sitting in an investigation. You have an obligation to answer truthfully and honestly. Today was just mind-boggling. They absolutely should drop the charges. We shouldn’t even have to go as far as to defend it.
