On Wednesday, Alina Habba, the attorney representing former President Donald Trump, spoke with Steve Doocy, one of the co-hosts of Fox & Friends. The conversation centered on Doocy’s growing skepticism regarding Trump’s and his supporters’ arguments.
Habba appeared on the program to discuss the new indictment issued against former President Donald Trump by Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis. Habba refuted the allegations by asserting that Trump’s right to due process had been violated.
Doocy introduced an article from the New York Post written by Fox News legal contributor Andy McCarthy, who opined that Trump could potentially face significant legal repercussions. This heightened the intensity of the discussion.
“I’ve heard from a lot of legal analysts, and they say what is different about this case than the federal cases is Georgia has laws that are specifically tailored to election interference and things like that,” Doocy began. “Andy McCarthy, a Fox News contributor, and also, he wrote an op-ed in the New York Post, he said that the Georgia indictment is the most perilous threat to former President Trump. Does President Trump know that this is a perilous threat?”
On Monday, a 41-count indictment was made public, identifying former President Trump and 18 additional defendants as the accused parties.
Three instances of soliciting a public official to violate an oath, two instances of conspiring to commit first-degree forgery, two instances of fabricating false statements and writings, one instance of violating the Georgia RICO Act, one instance of assuming the identity of a public official, one instance of submitting false documents, and one instance of filing fraudulent documents are among the 13 charges alleged against the ex-president.
According to Fulton County, Jenna Ellis, Rudy Giuliani, Sidney Powell, Robert Cheeley, John Eastman, Ray Smith III, Cathy Latham, Mark Meadows, David Shafer, Shawn Still, Kenneth Chesebro, Michael Roman, Misty Hampton, Stephen Lee, Trevian Kutti, Willie Lewis Floyd III, Jeffrey Clark, and Scott Hall are the remaining 18 individuals who have been charged. According to the Daily Wire, these individuals include attorneys, a former White House chief of staff, alleged fake electors, a Trump campaign staffer, an elections supervisor, a pastor, a publicist, a former leader of “Black Voices for Trump,” a former DOJ official, and a bail bondsman.
Following the public release of the indictment, the Trump campaign released a statement characterizing DA Willis as a zealous partisan who is actively campaigning and soliciting funds to prosecute President Trump on the basis of these baseless charges.
According to the assertion, Willis “strategically stalled her investigation to try and maximally interfere with the 2024 presidential race and damage the dominant Trump campaign” Furthermore, the aforementioned allegations were purportedly “fabricated.”
The Republican governor of Georgia, Brian Kemp, responded to former president Donald Trump’s remarks by asserting that the 2020 election held in his state was not subject to fraudulent manipulation.
“The 2020 election in Georgia was not stolen. For nearly three years now, anyone with evidence of fraud has failed to come forward – under oath – and prove anything in a court of law. Our elections in Georgia are secure, accessible, and fair and will continue to be as long as I am governor. The future of our country is at stake in 2024 and that must be our focus,” Kemp posted on Twitter (now known as X).
Habba responded by expressing disagreement with the notion that the threat is grave, citing access to confidential information as the basis for this stance.
“And we do not agree that it is a perilous threat because we actually have inside information,” Habba asserted.
“What inside information?” Doocy inquired.
“The inside information, Steve,” She wasted no time in responding and took an amicable jab at Doocy, “And you know, you used to love Trump… I got to tell you.”
Habba added, “This is something I’m not going to breach, right? I have confidentiality, and I have ethics, and I’m going to continue.”
