Trump’s hiring of an Atlanta defense attorney “shows he’s scared,” Stratege says

A Democratic strategist has said former President Donald Trump showed he was “scared” by hiring Atlanta defense attorney Drew Findling.

Speaking to MSNBC’s Al Sharpton on Saturday, strategist Juanita Tolliver said Trump’s hiring of the Atlanta attorney suggests he’s feeling the heat.

According to an Associated Press report, Trump hired Findling, who is known for defending famous rappers, to represent him on matters related to the special jury investigating him for alleged attempted interference in the 2020 Georgia election.

In response to the news, Tolliver said, “It shows Trump is scared, it shows he’s feeling the heat.

“Especially when he’s on tape asking the Secretary of State to find voices for him.

“It shows he’s scared, especially when you’re scared too [Rudy] Giuliani and Lindsey Graham will also testify here.

“[Trump] knows he’s next and is building his team to prepare for it.”

Findling, who previously clashed with Trump, said he was still anxious to defend the former president even if their policies disagree.

After Trump criticized NBA player Lebron James, Findling hit back at Trump by saying he was “the racist architect of the fraudulent Trump University.” He added that “POTUS pathetic” was at it once again.

The law firm Findling released a statement Thursday that it, along with attorneys Jennifer Little and Dwight Thomas, had been hired to represent Trump.

In an emailed statement seen by the Associated Press, Findling said he was a “passionate advocate against injustice” and would “strongly defend” the former president.

“I may differ politically from many of my clients, but that doesn’t change my obligation to defend myself against wrongful investigations,” Findling said in the statement.

“In this case, the focus on President Trump in Fulton County, Georgia is clearly an erroneous and politically motivated pursuit, and I, along with my office and my co-counsel, are fully committed to defending this injustice.”

In a separate email statement from AP, Little said the attorneys were handpicked on Trump’s behalf.

“A politically diverse group of lawyers with different perspectives have all come to the same conclusion that there have been no violations of Georgian law,” she said.

“We as a team look forward to vigorously defending our client and the Constitution.”

The problem in Georgia stems from Trump’s belief that he actually won the state in the 2020 election.

Shortly before the Jan. 6 Capitol riots, Trump called on Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger to see the fraud he believed had taken place.

Trump refused to admit he could have lost Georgia because of the size of his rallies, apparently trying to convince Raffensperger that the number of fraudulent votes far exceeded the nearly 12,000 ballots that gave President Joe Biden his victory in the state.

In a phone call between the two, Trump claimed his team would provide accurate numbers going forward, but estimated there were about 50,000 fraudulent ballots, though Trump conceded he only needed 11,779 to win the state.

news week has reached out to Trump’s office for comment.
