Trump Lawyer Christina Bobb, who was up to her earrings in Trump’s plot to undermine American democracy following the 2020 election, is mad as hell that journalists are allowed to report on Trump’s many, many legal problems and that state officials are attempting to hold him to account for his failed insurrection – labeling such efforts as “propaganda” and “election interference”.
Gee, where have I heard that before?
“Donald Trump’s attorney thinks voters should be shielded from knowing about the legal problems facing the former president.
Christina Bobb said on Newsmax that officials spreading “propaganda” about Trump criminal cases — he’s facing 91 charges in four jurisdictions — is tantamount to election interference.
Bobb was specifically talking about Shenna Bellows, Maine’s secretary of state who last week became the second official to rule Trump should be disqualified from the ballot under the Constitution’s 14th amendment.
It states that anybody who takes part in an insurrection against the U.S. is ineligible from holding public office. A similar ruling was made earlier last month in Colorado.
“This narrative that Trump isn’t going to be eligible, trying to instill fear in the voters that oh, maybe I shouldn’t vote for him… maybe I shouldn’t follow him because he won’t be on the ballot,” Bobb said.“
I dunno so much about that, Christina, maybe people shouldn’t vote for your client because he is a seditious POS, perfectly willing wipe his ample ass with American law and tradition to remain in power.
And just maybe journalists should be perfectly free to report as voluminously as they wish on court proceedings that attempt to prevent him from doing so again, and state elected officials be allowed to use their state’s statutes to to prevent him from once again obtaining the office he so thoroughly disgraced without any additional sniping by you:
“Bobb said Bellows should be impeached for her decision.
“I would encourage the attorney general or the district attorneys in Maine to take a closer look at this and possibly investigate [Ms Bellows] for abuse of authority, abuse of power and election interference because this, no doubtedly, is election interference,” she told Newsmax. The interview was reported by The Independent.“
Of course Bobb is allowed by the Constitution to go on right-wing media outlets and peddle this horse hockey for her client, but the vast majority of her fellow lawyers would feel constrained by ethical considerations and an appreciation for their own dignity from doing mouthing such crap.
But not you, Christina.
Anything for a buck, hey?

Well, it is unless you cover your ears with MAGA earmuffs and speak in tongues to yourself at maximum volume…

Trump has legal problems, and he created them. Each legal problem has been justified over and over. Much of his problems resulted from not listening to his advisors (like when they told him to call his people OFF on 1/6). He does not listen to his lawyers either.

Couldn’t agree more.🤣🤣🤣
Of course Bobb may be more concerned that continued accurate reporting on Trump’s seditious activities will reveal more about her role in abetting them…
Uncomfortable thought, huh, Christina?
