Trump LIVID Advice of Counsel Defense not argued

Reportedly Quad Indicted is very upset that his defense team did not raise the Advice of Counsel defense as his campaign fraud trial goes to the jury. His rants on social media (I.e. his failing “Truth Social”) back up this reporting.

Once again, QI shows his ignorance of the law. To raise the Advice of Counsel defense, QI would have to testify and admit that the crime took place. He would then have to demonstrate evidence that his legal staff influenced him to actually commit/engage in the illegal activities.

Coward tRump isn’t man enough to do that. Ever.

Instead, he had his legal team THROW HIS ENTIRE FAMILY UNDER THE BUS BY ASKING WHY AREN’T JUNIOR AND ERIC ALSO ON TRIAL? After all, their signatures were on some of the documents.

Switch your plea to “not guilty by reasons of mental incompetence” if you must, but THE ONLY ONE ON TRIAL FOR HIS OWN ACTIONS IS QUAD INDICTED!

Well if Trump loses his law license because he is found guilty of fraud he can always fall back on science. Trump knows all about science because his uncle was a scientist - so science is in his DNA. The advice of counsel thing is just a feeble way for him to blame someone else - but throwing his kids under the bus is as low as a person can get. Cheers!

@Nanoose Earlier I posted a list of the points the prosecution needed to prove beyond a reasonable doubt. I think that the prosecutors had corroboration for each of those points which clearly supported Michael Cohen’s testimony.

In particular I was worried about establishing that Quad Indicted had prior knowledge of the hush money scheme, but the tape of Cohen describing the payoff to QI and David Pecker’s testimony I believe meets that standard.

It helps that the entire defense was “Michael Cohen’s a liar.” Everybody already knows that. That is what cooperating witnesses usually are! QI picked him to be his “fixer.”. By not addressing any of the evidence, there really was no defense.

@WalksWith Not to mention the “other flag” that flew at their beach house for three months!

If the Advice of Counsel defence had been raised, a ton of Attorney client privilge would have been surrendered and a ton of other bad acts bought in, probably leading to further indictments for Trump and his counsel. And Trump has been told this and its its been made public..He seriously believes the public has no memory..😷
