Trump Lawyers Backstab Him
On Friday, former President Donald Trump and two of his key attorneys who were representing him in Special Counsel Jack Smith’s investigation decided to end their professional relationship. This development came merely a day following his indictment.
According to Fox, the leading contender in the 2024 Republican presidential primary, Donald Trump, has been indicted on multiple charges, including obstruction of justice, conspiracy, and illegal retention of classified government material. He has been summoned to appear in federal court in Miami on Tuesday. The details of the indictment are currently undisclosed as it is under seal.
On Friday, the legal team comprised of Jim Trusty and John Rowley, who were representing Donald Trump prior to his indictment, tendered their resignations.
In a statement, Jim Trusty and John Rowley announced their resignation as legal counsel to President Trump, effective immediately. They expressed their gratitude for the opportunity to defend him over the past year, and expressed confidence that he would be exonerated in his ongoing legal battles against what they perceive as the Biden Administration’s politicization of the American justice system.
Trusty and Rowley further stated that with the filing of the case in Miami, it is a suitable time for them to step down and allow other legal representatives to handle the proceedings until their completion. They emphasized that they do not intend to engage in media appearances regarding their resignations or disclose any confidential communications they had with the President or his legal team.
On Friday, Donald Trump made an announcement on his TRUTH Social platform stating that he will be enlisting the services of a new attorney named Todd Blanche.
Trump wrote, “For purposes of fighting the Greatest Witch Hunt of all time, now moving to the Florida Courts, I will be represented by Todd Blanche, Esq., and a firm to be named later. I want to thank Jim Trusty and John Rowley for their work, but they were up against a very dishonest, corrupt, evil, and ‘sick’ group of people, the likes of which has not been seen before.”
Trump added, “We will be announcing additional lawyers in the coming days. When will Joe Biden be Indicted for his many crimes against our Nation? MAGA!”
