Trump Sends Chills Down Jack Smith’s Spine

Trump is ready to turn the tables on his enemies.

During an appearance on “Fox News Sunday,” Alina Habba, an attorney representing former President Donald Trump in the face of recent indictments, voiced her concerns about the ongoing legal proceedings. Habba contended that the charges brought against Trump were primarily motivated by political considerations and were intended to hinder him in the run-up to the 2024 presidential election.

As a result, Habba is now calling for Special Counsel Jack Smith himself to be investigated for relentlessly targeting Donald Trump.

Habba, who has been a legal spokesperson for Trump, emphasized that the timing of the trials was unrealistic and amounted to a theatrical display. She asserted that the trials, scheduled to begin in early 2024, were likely to overlap due to their duration, making it practically impossible for Trump to manage simultaneous trials in different states. Habba pointed out that the trials could potentially extend into late 2024, aligning with her view that the situation was deliberately orchestrated.

In transcript provided by Fox, Habba explained, “We’re not concerned because we know the facts of the cases, which I can’t get into, obviously, for privileged reasons, but I can tell you that it’s to tie him up. It’s definitely political. The motivation [of Fulton County DA Fani Willis] is now under investigation by Jim Jordan for, and I believe Jack Smith should be investigated as well.”

Habba’s statements followed former President Trump’s recent surrender to authorities in Georgia, which resulted in his mugshot being taken. Subsequent to this event, his campaign reportedly raised a substantial sum of money, amounting to $7.1 million.

Notably, Trump’s legal woes were traced back to multiple indictments, with the Georgia indictment marking his fourth. His unique situation as the first former U.S. president to face criminal charges was highlighted. The initial charges against Trump, stemming from a lengthy investigation by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, focused on alleged hush-money payments made during the 2016 presidential campaign. Trump pleaded not guilty to 34 felony counts related to falsifying business records.

Moreover, Special Counsel Jack Smith brought forth additional charges against Trump, including mishandling classified documents and involvement in the pro-Trump storming of the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021. In response to these charges, Trump entered not guilty pleas for all 37 felony counts related to the mishandling of classified documents, as well as those connected to the Capitol incident.
