Trump Lawyer Comments On Appeals Court Ruling
Former President Donald Trump’s attorney Alina Habba has celebrated a recent ruling in the ongoing lawsuit against her client, in which a judge lifted a gag order and allowed expert witnesses to testify on behalf of Trump. Habba accused New York Attorney General Letitia James of “extortion” and ulterior motives in the case, claiming that she is “fighting for Deutsche Bank” rather than seeking justice.
The case, brought forth by James, alleges that the Trump Organization used Deutsche Bank – its largest credit lender – to secure favorable loans by inflating the value of Trump’s companies. The penalty for Trump could result in a fine of $250 million and a ban from doing business in New York.
However, Habba has vehemently defended her client, insisting that the Trump Organization has done “no harm” and has actually contributed to the city’s economy through the creation of jobs and the payment of taxes. She also downplayed the potential consequences for Trump, stating that he “won’t be so sad to leave” New York and that the city is not what it used to be.
Habba also addressed concerns about a possible plea deal, stating that it would be difficult for her to advise her client to pay for what she believes is “extortion” by James. She argued that the allegations against Trump are baseless and that the only reason the case is being pursued is because of James’ ties to Deutsche Bank.
The attorney also highlighted the threats that her team has faced throughout the duration of the trial. She revealed that she and her colleagues have received death threats, but they have chosen not to blame James or her supporters for them.
One member of the Trump team even shared a death threat against Habba from a prisoner, but she brushed it off, stating that it comes with the territory of being in the spotlight.
Habba also commented on Hunter Biden’s recent request to subpoena Trump in his own legal case for tax and gun crimes. She called it “ridiculous” and claimed that the Biden family lacks accountability for their actions.
As the trial continues into its second month, Habba and her team are confident that they will prevail and that the judge will rule in favor of Trump. They plan to bring in expert witnesses to testify on his behalf, challenging the judge’s previous ruling that Trump is liable for fraud.
Regardless of the outcome, Habba and Trump remain unfazed, with Habba stating that her client is not “sad” about the possibility of no longer being able to do business in New York.
As the trial continues, the public can expect more fiery statements and strong defenses from the Trump team, as they continue to fight for their client’s innocence.
