    Trump’s Attorneys Make First Move In Federal Case

    Published on

    Former President Donald Trump’s counsel have begun defending him in the federal case brought against him by the Department of Justice.

    As ordered by Judge Aileen Cannon, the attorneys have filed for their security certifications, according to CNN legal analyst Shan Wu.

    “Shan Wu is with us as well, former prosecutor. As Paula mentioned, Trump’s lawyers are in touch with the U.S. Justice Department to at least start the process of getting these security clearances to work and to try the case. Walk us through how that works,” anchor Wolf Blitzer said.

    “They are going to be seeking a hurry-up process known as an interim clearance. There won’t be time to finish a full background. They will interview neighbors, people that they had gone to school with. But to get the interim in place, the FBI can work quickly on that. As Paula said, I would expect them to be able to complete that process within a few weeks, assuming that Trump’s lawyers get all their paperwork in, which is primarily a laborious listing of where you have lived, worked, who could they interview to learn more about you. I think that can happen very quickly. It is more time, absolutely, because of the nature of the case,” the legal analyst said.

    “I do think it will be so important for the special counsel to try to put in these guardrails of protecting this information, and that’s the way they can protect their case and even hold Trump accountable if he violates those rules,” he said.

    A former criminal defense counsel for Donald Trump argues that the investigation into the former president’s alleged mishandling of classified documents may not even result in a trial.

    Timothy Parlatore, who served as Trump’s criminal defense attorney until last month, spoke with Fox News host Laura Ingraham about Trump’s arraignment in Miami on Tuesday in the case brought against him by Special Counsel Jack Smith, who was appointed by Biden’s Department of Justice.

    Trump entered his “not guilty” plea in federal court. Trump, President Joe Biden’s chief opponent in next year’s presidential election, could face decades in prison if proven guilty on all charges.

    Parlatore argued that there are fundamental faults in the case, specifically regarding the grand jury process and violations of attorney-client privilege. Parlatore stated that he believes this could result in the dismissal of the entire case.

    Trump’s attorneys should “attack the conduct of the entire investigation and demonstrate through death by a thousand cuts why this entire investigation is irreparably tainted by government misconduct,” according to Parlatore. “The case should be dismissed or, at the very least, the prosecutor should be disqualified,” he added.
