Trump attorney Lindsey Halligan appeared on Eric Bolling’s NewsMax show today to engage in a bit of lite theater and stochastic terrorism implying that Donald Trump cannot be safe “in a place” like Washington D.C. and for that reason his trial must be moved to “place” not like… well, you know.
Think you dog-whistled loud enough for to hear you down in Alabamee, Lindsey?
“Lindsey Halligan, an attorney for former President Donald Trump, claimed on Thursday that his recent arraignments “really put his life at risk,” especially “in places like Washington, D.C.”
“During an appearance on Newsmax’s The Balance following Trump’s arraignment in D.C., Halligan told host Eric Bolling, “I want to say that I’m so grateful that the Secret Service and that police officers, bailiffs kept President Trump safe during that arraignment. These arraignments, particularly in places like Washington, D.C., really put his life at risk.”
“” But yeah, every time something negative comes out about the Biden family, Donald Trump gets indicted. Three indictments in four months. How can President Trump be expected to prepare for all of these trials at one time while simultaneously ensuring his right to a speedy trial in each case? It’s practically impossible, and everything that President Trump did was with the advice of counsel. Mike Pence is— he’s an attorney, and at no point did he ever tell President Trump that what President Trump was asking him to do was criminal behavior.
So while the first step in this case is to get the case out of D.C., there’s a 0% chance of President Trump getting an impartial jury in a city where 92% or more voters voted against him in the 2020 election. Additionally, this judge is clearly biased in my opinion. She needs to recuse herself and she won’t, so she will need to be recused.””
MEDIAite has the video but it will not embed here. It’s not on YouTube either, so you’ll have to click over.
Fortunately the good folks over there transcribed her statement in full and kindly saved me from having to employ my piss poor typing skills.
I can just hear the good old boys at bund-camp in Michigan saying…
“Didja hear that, BillyJoeRoyBob, that there purdy lady on the TeeVee says theys a gonna kill President Trump. We got enough gas money to get to D.C.?”
Trump will continue, through his photogenic lawyers, to try to incite violence from his cultists until something does happen and they do have to move the trial or deploy the National Guard.
American carnage indeed.
Does this dog-whistle to his crazies qualify as tampering with the jury, Judge Chutkan?
Lock him up.
