Trump attorney believes Democrats are using the courts against the GOP candidate because they 'can't beat him in the polls'

 April 23, 2024

Former President Donald Trump's attorney, Alina Habba, believes her client is being prosecuted because Democrats "can't beat him in the polls," Breitbart reported. Habba made these remarks from the steps of the New York State Supreme Court Building in Manhattan, where Trump's hush money case is underway.

Trump is juggling four separate cases while campaigning for the 2024 presidential election, and Habba told reporters this is no accident. "The fact that we have two courts, not one — criminal and civil — being used against one man because they cannot beat him in the polls is a disgrace to the American judicial system," the lawyer and spokesman for Trump said.

The former president was the subject of a civil case brought in New York prior to his criminal trial. “You should not have two teams of lawyers here today. You should not even be here today, because he did nothing wrong. It is the epitome of a witch hunt,” she told reporters.

Habba Slams the Judge

Trump and his legal team have been forced into an unprecedented dilemma caused by several cases that cropped up only when he became a candidate for the 2024 presidential election. The first was a prosecution from Democrat New York Attorney General Letitia James in an attempt to bankrupt the former president.

Habba said she had to make her way over from the other New York court where Trump had to post a $175 million bond. This was the penalty imposed after a civil court found him guilty of misrepresenting the value of his assets to obtain loans.

New York Judge Arthur Engoron originally demanded $454 million dollars in penalties despite the fact that the loans had long ago been paid off and no damage was done to any party. The judge accepted the lower bond amount on Monday following an appeal.

During her impassioned remarks to reporters, Habba slammed Engoron for implying that Trump's money "isn’t green enough" after the judge disputed the type of bond that was used."We wasted time," Habba said.

"The judge said he thought money market accounts go down under the amount. He doesn’t understand basic principles of finance," she charged. According to Forbes, these financial instruments indeed "aren’t subject to the ups and downs of the stock market."

The Broader Issue

Although Democrats may be cheering this effort to thwart Trump's presidential bid, Habba pointed out that these legal proceedings indicate a grave issue in the judicial system. "I am sick of coming in front of the press and saying this, but you have to because you people need to understand what is going on," Habba said.

"God forbid you put an accounting thing in for ‘legal counsel.’ … Because they’re afraid of 2024," the attorney charged.

"And you know what? They should be because the American people are not stupid. They see what’s going on," Habba added.

Habba is correct that Democrats are desperate as President Joe Biden has been trailing in the polls. Even as USA Today celebrated the fact Biden is now at 44% support compared to Trump's 46%, that lead is still quite significant considering what the left has thrown at Trump.

As the incumbent against a candidate who already lost his reelection, Biden should be several points ahead of Trump, especially in light of his legal woes. However, the American people are smart enough to see through what is happening, and they certainly won't forget before November's election.
