Recently, Donald Trump’s lawyer, Alina Habba, slammed the verdict of the E. Jean Carroll defamation trial, where the former president was ordered to pay an exorbitant fine of over $83 million in damages. As Habba was seen on the street surrounded by the press, a reporter asked her if she harbored any regret for defending Trump in court.
Habba fired back at the reporter, maintaining that legally representing the former president was an honor. “No, I’m glad you asked me that question. No, I’m not having any second thoughts about representing President Trump. It is the proudest thing I could ever do,” Habba said.
The lawyer continued, asserting that the only “second thoughts” she had pertained to the legitimacy of the other legal practitioners attacking her client. “What I’m having second thoughts about is the license that I stand here with the people in they’re supposed to have. I have not been because I respect my ethics while I’m on trial. But let me now speak about what has happened,” she added.
Habba emphasized that while she is proud to stand up and defend Donald Trump, she is dismayed by what she has observed in Trump’s legal battle. “I have sat on trial after trial for months in this state, the state of New York Attorney General Letitia James, and now this week, weeks, weeks, why because President Trump is leading in the polls, and now we see what you get in New York. So don’t get it twisted. Whoever asked me that question. I am so proud to stand with President President Trump. But I am not proud to stand with what I saw in that courtroom,” she said.
“Before I walked into court, that judge decided that every single defense President Trump had we were not allowed to raise in front of the jury. It is in writing and I encouraged the journalists, the real journalist to take the minute to look at his orders. There was no proof and I couldn’t prove that she didn’t bring in the dress. There was no DNA. There was no expert. My experts were denied two of them two of them were denied to come in,” said the lawyer,
The lawyer continued criticizing the integrity of the case against Trump, asserting that the legal proceedings are a violation of the legal system. “That is a violation of everything I stand for and that is why I stand with Trump. And that is why so many Americans are so proud that he is running again and so excited to run to the ballot box but don’t get it twisted. We are seeing a violation of our justice system, ladies and gentlemen,” Habba continued.
“You are not allowed to be stripped of every defense that you have. You are not allowed to be told that you can’t bring it up. And imagine a point where a judge tells the lawyer before your client, the former president of the United States, the leading candidate, and obvious night nominee for the Republican party before he takes the stand to defend himself,” she said.
