Trump’s Attorney Describes Former President’s Reaction to Indictment News

Former President Trump’s attorney Joe Tacopina declared the rule of law “dead” on Thursday following a Manhattan grand jury voting to indict the 45th president.

Speaking to Fox News’ Sean Hannity on Thursday night, Tacopina said Trump was “shocked” by the news, which they learned through media reports instead of Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s office.

“He was shocked, you know, because we really weren’t – I was shocked,” the lawyer said of their initial reactions. “I’ve never been more angry about a charge because today the rule of law in the United States of America died. It’s dead. And it’s something that I never thought I’d see. I have goosebumps even saying it because I don’t feel good about saying it.”

Tacopina said he believes the former president will be charged with more than 30 counts of business fraud, likening it to the Soviet-style “you pick the target — the person you don’t like… and then you find the crime.”

“They’ll take each check and make that a count, perhaps, and that’s how they’ll do it because the checks are paid to Cohen,” he said, arguing this move changes America.

“It never was that way in the United States,” Tacopina added. “It’s not supposed to be that way, and when we start doing that, we’re no better than those other horrific, horrific dictatorships and governments that abused rule of law.”

Tacopina said he’s convinced the charges are politically motivated.

“There is no one that could ever convince me that this man was not just charged to affect the elections… and that’s scary to me,” Tacopina noted.

Ultimately, however, the case “will backfire,” Tacopina argued, “because we’re gonna win this case. We will humiliate them, and they will pay the price.”

    Yes , this is no laughing matter. I think the answer lies in finding ways to defund the Democrat Party. I suggest MAGGA make a move to take the trade unions away from them. I am in a trade union and I and most members I know can’t stand the Democrat Party. We see them for the wackos they are. I viewed President Trump as more union friendly with actions he took to preserve good high paying jobs. Joe Biden wants to screw union coal miners by putting them out of business and doesn’t have the decency to offer them a buy out. Only his educated elitists rate that high. The Steele tariff that the Supreme Court just upheld is a Trump legacy that the wackos didn’t destroy yet. Get rid of the anti labor Republicans and take the unions!

    This statement is not about insurrection or Treason. it is fully our constitutionally rights given to every American and in our obligation to remove tyranny from our land and tyrants as quoted by Thomas Jefferson who wrote about this day almost as a profit because he new absolute power absolutely corrupts.
    He wrote”
    ““Whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness it is the right of the people to alter or abolish it, and to institute new government…”

    We were given our 2nd amendment BY OUR FOUNDERS to protect our constitutional rights against exactly this sort of government and tyranny.
    All I have said is protected under the real law of the land the constitution of the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.

    WHEN ARE WE GOING TO STOP COMPLAING AND GET READY TO INVOKE OUR CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS IMMEDIATLEYBBEFORE THE DIRT COVERS OUR NATIONS FACE ANY FURTHER AND REMOVE THIS TYRANNY FROM OUR LAND.

    WE HAVE OVER 100 MILLION ARMED AMERICANS TO REMOVE ANYONES SOULS WHO WILL NOT LEAVE IF TELL THEM.

    AND IT 100% LEGAL UNDER THE PROTECTION OF THE CONSTITUTION. WE CAN END THIS NIGHTMARE WITH LIOTTLE ORGINZATION AND ABOUT 3-5 % OF THAT NUMBER OF 100 MILLION.

    CRAP I BET OUT OF THE 74 MILLION THEY ADMITED THAT VOTED FOR TRUMP ARE ALL ARMED.
