Just one day after being charged, the former president Trump and two of his top attorneys who were representing him in Special Counsel Jack Smith’s investigation split up on Friday.
Trump, the current front-runner in the Republican nomination for president in 2024, was charged with at least seven counts of obstructing the course of justice, conspiring against the government, and illegally retaining secret information. He has been told to show up in Miami federal court on Tuesday. The indictment is still pending.
Jim Trusty and John Rowley, the solicitors who were defending him prior to his indictment, resigned on Friday.
“This morning we tendered our resignations as counsel to President Trump, and we will no longer represent him on either the indicted case or the January 6 investigation,” Trusty and Rowley stated in a statement on Friday. It has been a privilege to defend him over the past year, and we are certain that he will prevail in his fight against the Biden Administration’s partisan weaponization of the American judicial system.
Get off the crack pipe, says third-party presidential candidate Cornel West of Joe Biden’s “mediocre, milk toast.”
The moment has come, they said, “now that the case has been filed in Miami, for us to step aside and allow others to carry the cases through to completion.” We don’t intend to speak to the media about our withdrawals or any other private conversations we’ve had with the President or his legal staff.
On Friday, Trump announced he will hire Todd Blanche as a new attorney on his TRUTH Social.
Trump stated in a TRUTH Social post on Friday that he will be represented by Todd Blanche, Esq., and a business that would be named later “for purposes of fighting the Greatest Witch Hunt of all time, now moving to the Florida Courts.” I wish to commend Jim Trusty and John Rowley for their work, but they had to deal with an extremely dishonest, crooked, nasty, and “sick” bunch of individuals that had never been seen before.
We will be introducing more solicitors in the upcoming days, he continued. When will Joe Biden be charged with his numerous crimes against the country? MAGA!”
Biden vetoes a bill that would have ended his $400 billion loan giveaway and declares that he “is not going to back down”
