So says Rolling Stone……
The ex-President seems so despereate he’s gonna add lawyers who ‘advised’ on how he could steal election to the over 1,000 suckers who the FBI arrested for showing up Jan. 6 to help him stop Congress from certifying the 2020 Presidential vote…..
I guess this actually makes sense since the Feds have got most of them to sing to them to keep from joining Trump getting indicted….
The walls ARE closing in on the Big Guy…..
Who has ALWAYS been about HIMSELF……
DONALD TRUMP’S ATTORNEYS are preparing a legal plan to shovel blame onto the lawyers who aided his attempt to overturn the 2020 election, two sources familiar with the matter tell Rolling Stone.
Trump is on the cusp of being indicted over Jan. 6 and its surrounding events, and if the case goes to trial, his current legal team is preparing an “advice of counsel” argument, attempting to pull blame away from the former president for any possible illegal activity. Plans for such a defense have been percolating since last year, the two sources say.
Several lawyers in Trump’s ever-shifting legal orbit spent time both this and last year quietly studying past high-profile cases involving this particular line of defense. The attorneys tried to game out how such an argument would fare in front of a judge or a jury.
In the aftermath of Joe Biden’s 2020 election victory, Trump had an armada of lawyers — some officially representing him, and some simply aligned with him — spreading unhinged conspiracy theories and pushing states to reverse the results: Rudy Giuliani. Sidney Powell. John Eastman. The list goes on and on.
The attorneys were acting on Trump’s behalf. But in this legal strategy, Team Trump would argue it was the lawyers leading Trump, rather than the other way around.
“It is an argument the [former] president likes, and the team is on board with it,” one Trump adviser bluntly says, then somewhat ominously adding: “John [Eastman] and Rudy [Giuliani] gave a lot of counsel … Other people can decide how sound it was.”
Trump lawyers and his spokesperson did not respond to requests for comment on this story. But the team is already previewing the “advice of counsel” strategy in the media, repeatedly stressing that the president was acting on the legal advice he was being given….
