Trump's Lawyer Says Case Won't Survive Long; Promises To Raise Selective Prosecution As a Defense

He also said that Trump would not take a guilty plea -- like, to a few misdemeanors.

Trump's defense team plans to make "a lot of motions" once they see the indictment, according to Tacopina.

"I don't think this case is going to see a jury. I think it's going to go away on papers," he said. "I think there's a legal challenge that will be made and should be made successfully."

Ed Morrissey:

There may be multiple challenges to this case, and Tacopina mentions a couple of them in this interview. First is a generic motion to dismiss, which is itself not an argument but a vehicle for challenges to the indictment. Tacopina specifically mentions selective prosecution, an accusation that will likely involve the lack of action by the Manhattan DA to Hillary Clinton's funding of the Steele dossier. Clinton and her team finally agreed to pay a fine of $113,000 almost exactly a year ago for hiding the payment as a legal expense in a case that began in 2018 ... and in which the Manhattan DA's office took no interest:
Hillary Clinton's 2016 presidential campaign and the Democratic National Committee have agreed to pay $113,000 to settle a Federal Election Commission investigation into whether they violated campaign finance law by misreporting spending on research that eventually became the infamous Steele dossier.

That is according to documents sent on Tuesday to the Coolidge Reagan Foundation, which had filed an administrative complaint in 2018 accusing the Democrats of misreporting payments made to a law firm during the 2016 campaign to obscure the spending.

The Clinton campaign hired Perkins Coie, which then hired Fusion GPS, a research and intelligence firm, to conduct opposition research on Republican candidate Donald Trump's ties to Russia. But on FEC forms, the Clinton campaign classified the spending as legal services.

"By intentionally obscuring their payments through Perkins Coie and failing to publicly disclose the true purpose of those payments" the campaign and DNC "were able to avoid publicly reporting on their statutorily required FEC disclosure forms the fact that they were paying Fusion GPS to perform opposition research on Trump with the intent of influencing the outcome of the 2016 presidential election," the initial complaint had read.

...

Furthermore, the FEC fine is a civil penalty, which means that double jeopardy doesn't apply. So why hasn't Bragg called a grand jury to investigate Clinton's fraud?

There's a reason for that: Hillary Clinton's campaign office is in Brooklyn, not Manhattan. But the Brooklyn DA didn't bring charges either.

It's illegal to leak information about a grand jury -- a Class E felony-- and someone connected to the grand jury did just that in claiming that there were 34 counts against Donald Trump. Trump wants Bragg prosecuted.

He won't be, obviously.

"Wow! District Attorney Bragg just illegally LEAKED the various points, and complete information, on the pathetic Indictment against me," Trump wrote. "I know the reporter and so, unfortunately, does he. This means that he MUST BE IMMEDIATELY INDICTED. Now, if he wants to really clean up his reputation, he will do the honorable thing and, as District Attorney, INDICT HIMSELF."

The Post could not independently verify the full Yahoo! News report, but sources told The Post Monday night Trump would face at least 30 felony counts.

...

Trump, in a follow-up post on his social media site, called on Bragg to "resign, NOW!"

Speaking of people who probably committed a felony by illegally leaking details of a political-witchhunt indictment to friends in the propaganda media: Jim Jordan says "everything's on the table" with respect to Congressional Republicans' attempts to get the Soros DA Alvin Bragg to testify, including about possible coordination with the Biden White House or DNC.

During this week's broadcast of FNC's "Sunday Morning Futures," Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH), chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, said that everything was "on the table" pertaining to Congress' oversight role in the grand jury indictment of former President Donald Trump by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg.

"What are you -- when are you expecting to speak with Alvin Bragg?" host Maria Bartiromo asked. "If he does not come to testify in front of the Judiciary Committee, will you subpoena him?"

"Everything's on the table, Maria," Jordan replied. "We're going to talk with the other chairman and look at the response. We just got his letter back. We're reviewing that. But we think that this is -- here's, I think, maybe the most important thing. We think this is bigger. This involves all of us. I don't think it's an accident that the same week we learn that the IRS knocked on Matt Taibbi's door while he's testifying in Congress, that same week is when we learn a district attorney is going to -- a left-wing district attorney, a Soros-backed district attorney, is going to go after the former president of the United States."
