Trump’s Attorney Rejects Plea Deal Offer and Defends Innocence in Response to Federal Indictment

Alina Habba, the legal representative for former U.S. President Donald Trump, has firmly dismissed the idea of Trump accepting a plea deal in light of his recent federal indictment. During an interview on “Fox News Sunday” with Shannon Bream, Habba categorically stated that such an action would be an admission of guilt, emphasizing that Trump has not committed any wrongdoing.

The indictment against Trump includes 37 federal charges, ranging from willful retention of national defense information to conspiracy to obstruct justice and false statements. These charges emerged as a result of an extensive investigation conducted by Special Counsel Jack Smith, which was initiated following an FBI raid on Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate.

Habba forcefully challenged the accusations and underscored her belief in a two-tiered system of justice that treats the Biden and Trump families differently. When asked about the potential consequences of Trump’s guilt, which could result in lengthy imprisonment, Habba reiterated that Trump has done nothing wrong. She characterized the situation as politically motivated and a form of election interference.

Addressing the validity of the charges, Habba and other critics argue that Trump held the authority to declassify material under the Presidential Records Act. This suggests that the charges against him may lack substance. Habba remarked, “He has the absolute right to possess classified documents that he declassified under the Presidential Records Act. So, yes, they are blowing it out of proportion. It’s a straightforward matter.”

The former president is expected to appear in a federal court in Miami on Tuesday to address these charges.
