Trump Attorney Alina Habba Rips Manhattan DA, Judge


OPINION: This article could comprise commentary which displays the writer’s opinion.

An lawyer and authorized spokeswoman for former President Donald Trump has offered a giant replace on the Manhattan trial.

During an interview on Newsmax, Alina Habba criticized the Democrat-dominated justice system in New York City as “third world” and steered that the choose presiding over her consumer’s hush cash trial routinely infringes upon Trump’s constitutional rights to a good trial.

Habba particularly addressed the almost unprecedented gag order on Trump’s enterprise data legal trial in Manhattan, the primary towards a former president.

“The gag orders, the unconstitutionality. I mean, what is more Colombia? Russia? What is more third world?” Habba instructed Newsmax TV host Carl Higbie. “This is why we have people pouring into our country, running for freedom. And now we’re gonna be like that. You know, we are that. It’s disgusting.”

During a courtroom session final week, Judge Juan Merchan chastised Trump’s lawyer, Todd Blanche, as he vigorously defended Trump towards the gag order. Blanche contended that Trump’s responses to political assaults shouldn’t warrant punishment, however Merchan rebuked him, stating that he was “losing all credibility” on the matter.


“What happened in court today with the gag order and the anger that you’re seeing from these judges; it’s very concerning for me,” Habba mentioned.


A Fox News analyst and former authorized eagle for then-President George W. Bush lately mentioned he believes that Trump is popping his Manhattan hush-money trial into “political gold” that’s dramatically bettering his polling numbers.

John Yoo, a authorized scholar and University of California-Berkely regulation faculty professor, responded to a post-trial press convention Trump held on Thursday after the day’s proceedings had been over throughout an interview with host Neal Cavuto.

“All right, obviously, the former president not a fan of this ongoing trial now into its 10th day. So tomorrow will be day number 11,” Cavuto mentioned earlier than bringing in his analyst panel.

“John Yoo to you. And obviously, the frustration the president is expressing again and again as he has, about how limited he is to say and speak his mind, something that Michael Cohen is not. And this gag order and the thousand dollar fine each time he, you know, he says something out of turn, and prosecutors want him punished to believe it’s up to $9,000. Prosecutors say four or five more examples. That’s another four or $5,000. Where’s all that going?” Cavuto requested.

“You know, I agree with President Trump that he’s under an unprecedented, unfair gag order when you take into account the campaign,” Yoo started.

“But as we’ve talked about before, maybe I’m being contrarian here. Even though he’s suffering these legal setbacks, he’s turning it into political gold. As you mentioned, he’s six points ahead of Biden amongst registered voters nationwide. It’s incredible how he sort of performed a judo move on Biden and these prosecutors by turning these attacks into favorable political ratings,” the scholar continued.

“I think maybe part of his what we just saw, Biden has trouble giving a press conference and stringing cogent sentences together. I tell you, Neal, you sit in a courtroom for ten days in a row where you can’t say anything, and all you have to do is listen to people attack you,” Yoo added.

“And then at the end of that day, you get up and give a pretty good press conference. They’re pretty good cogent statements not typed, you know, no transcript written out for you not practiced. And so you look at that contrast between him and Biden, and he comes out looking better,” Yoo declared.

Also final week, a CNN panel of specialists and pundits expressed shock at how “effective” they discovered the questioning of a witness for Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s prosecutors by a lawyer for Trump.
