An attorney, who is also a spokeswoman for former President Donald Trump, has suggested that an inquiry into the actions of Special Counsel Jack Smith should be conducted in light of their accusation against the former president being deemed as political “theatrics”.
Alina Habba, the attorney acting as a legal spokesperson for Trump in response to his recent indictments, expressed her thoughts during an appearance on “Fox News Sunday” with host Shannon Bream. She suggested that the array of charges brought against Trump was intended to impede him ahead of the 2024 election.
“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,” Habba told Bream, according to Fox News. “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 further asserted that Trump is attempting to delay the trial dates, currently set for early 2024. DA Fani Willis has requested an expedited start of the proceedings in her case, suggesting a trial as soon as this autumn.
“These trial dates also are going to move. It’s unrealistic. It’s theatrics, and no judge is going to say that you can be on two trials at once in two different states because a lot of these overlap,” Habba told Bream. “They look at the start date of the trial, but these are four- to six-week trials at the least. So there’s no way they’re not going to overlap. I mean, they’re gonna have to go into October, November of next year, again, by design.”
Howie Carr, a top-rated syndicated radio host based in Boston, expressed his opinion in an interview with Breitbart News’ Washington Bureau Chief Matthew Boyle on SiriusXM over the weekend that Donald Trump likely has the 2024 Republican presidential nomination secured at this point.
Carr was asked about Trump’s prospects despite four indictments, including one from Fulton County, Georgia that resulted in a widely-shared mugshot and increased support for the former president among African Americans.
“I don’t think there’s any way Trump could be stopped at this point. I mean, especially with as many people as there are in the field, I mean, it’s just going to split it up.”
Carr then posed the question to Boyle, inquiring as to his opinion of the situation. Boyle responded that he believes Trump is on a “glide path” towards gaining the nomination and compared it to 2016, citing immigration as one of the primary issues that resonate with voters, just like four years ago.
He added that while he believes Ramaswamy is doing well in the primary and DeSantis has some degree of support, he does not anticipate any scenario where Trump does not secure the nomination unless something unexpected occurs.
Carr said the issue is becoming more of a concern in states “far from the border” such as Massachusetts, but went on to say it “is something that’s under the radar again, and it’s not being covered by the mainstream media very much.”
“These illegal aliens are being brought in in states far, far from the border, not just New York State, although that’s where, you know, there’s still a lot of attention, but like in Massachusetts, for instance, just this week, the state took over a hotel in Yarmouth on Cape Cod, sort of a somewhat working class — upper class as well — but mostly working-class area,” Carr said.
