Donald Trump’s legal spokeswoman Alina Habba said the ex-president needed no ‘preparation’ for the four different criminal cases against him because he had ‘done nothing wrong’ “.

Donald Trump’s legal spokeswoman, Alina Habba, said on Sunday she expects the ex-president’s multiple trials to continue after the 2024 general election in November last year.
Habba told Fox News on Sunday that Trump wouldn’t need “a lot of preparation” because he would just tell the truth. Pictured: The first photo of Trump was released after he turned himself in to officials in Fulton County, Georgia, in connection with the fourth indictment against him last year.
Trump’s fourth and final indictment was filed earlier this month in Fulton County, Georgia, in connection with the ex-president’s coordinated effort with 18 other co-defendants to overturn election results. of 2020 in the state in order to help him win the Electoral College.
Habba is part of the team behind the ex-president, she is also Trump’s legal spokesperson and general counsel for the pro-Trump Save America PAC.
Bream asked Habba on the Sunday morning show how Trump will juggle his legal battles and the 2024 presidential race.
“If it was a normal person, honestly, Shannon, I could understand your concern,” Habba said. “President Trump is no ordinary person. He’s incredibly smart and he knows the ropes. He also knows the facts because he has lived them.
“What are we going to have to prepare for? The truth?’ she questioned. “You don’t need much preparation when you haven’t done anything wrong. So it doesn’t concern me.
Trump visited Fulton County on Thursday – the day after he missed the first Republican presidential debate in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Although this is the fourth indictment against the ex-president, it was the first time his photo ID was taken and released. His campaign touted a $7.1 million fundraising windfall within 48 hours of that booking with the scowling photo.
The arraignment is scheduled for next month.

“These trial dates will also be moved. It’s unrealistic. It’s theater,” Habba told Fox News’ Bream. “And no judge is going to say you can have two trials at once in two different states, but a lot of them overlap. They look at the start date of the trial.
“But these are trials of at least four to six weeks. So there’s no way they’re not overlapping. I mean, they’re going to have to go until October, November next year, again, on purpose.
She concluded, “But when it comes to President Trump, the nominee, I have no concerns.”
If found guilty, most Republican voters say they will still support the ex-president. In fact, many are encouraged by the charges against him.
During the first Republican debate on Wednesday, six of the eight qualified and stage-ridden candidates said they would keep their commitment to the RNC to support Trump if he becomes the nominee in 2024 – even if he is convicted of a crime. .
