  1. Lol I love how republicans claim everything is “politically driven” when they’re caught breaking the law

    1. Oh you mean like Biden ‘I won’t tolerate harassment under my presidency’ but seems okay with accepting harassment in VP Harris office and staff it seems? Those sort of laws?

    2. @Andy R Sorry but racism isn’t bound by party lines. Both groups have them, it’s just that the right is way more bold with showing they are.

  2. They are. Your client and his company have been cheating the American taxpayer for decades. We haven’t even got to the sedition and treason part of the show yet.

    1. Pro bono as far as Trump is concerned. I see these attorneys bailing on him one after the other.

    2. Here is an attorney that will risk his reputation, law licence, and jail time for his client, individual one.

  3. Republicans good judges of what is and what is not politically motivated, because pretty much everything they do is politically motivated.

    1. notice that this “lawyer’s” defense is “other big corporations commit crimes, so we should be allowed to commit crimes, too.” Because that’s pretty much what he just said.

    1. Even if the right labels the investigation into Trump’s criminal organization a “witch hunt”, the prosecutors are quite literally finding “witches”…

    2. People before him didn’t or don’t or ow taxes. It is a political thing. Al Sharpton dodges and owes money in NY still.. way before the Orange man fear

    3. @Reported Alotforfreespeech 1) “I broke the law but he did, too” isn’t an excuse to not be prosecuted and 2) this is provable, demonstrative, and obvious fraud. This isn’t just owing taxes or not paying taxes, this is obvious manipulation to avoid taxes. Your comment is pathetic.

    1. I would say no if the attorney is like lying it means they reported all this and the IRS and the state franchise tax board of New York did not flag it

    2. But its ok, all the real people are doing it. Remember people who pay taxes, like people who fight our wars, are all just chumps to them.

    3. @Gary McClellan , If no one committed any crime(s), then they have nothing to worry about, correct? I highly doubt that anyone will be framed.

    4. @Gary McClellan Put it this way, peabrain, if you or I did what Trump and his criminal organization did, we’d be in prison… Full stop

  4. Setting a precedence? Does he mean like how the former, twice impeached President set a precedence that its ok to hate and bully people? OR lie all the time because you can and get away with it. Lock Trump Up!

    1. @Charles Hanks Trump makes Watergate look like an overdue library book. He literally tried to burn down democracy.

      Still at it, actually.

    2. @Charles Hanks Nixon was a president who became a crook. Trump was a crook that became a president.

  5. trump incited an armed insurrection on january 6 2021 to overthrow a FREE & FAIR election

    1. @zooallow 1025 Flag poles CAN be used as a weapon, sherlock. FYI weapons were found stashed not far from the Capitol building.

    2. @zooallow 1025 bear spray mace, flagpole, retractable batons & don’t forget their arrogance & stupidity!

    3. @Michael Whitted flag poles. So in outer words. You agree there were no weapons. Did just say last week. If you watch to overthrow tge government uou need f15.

  6. If you wanna upset a democrat, lie to him.
    If you wanna upset a Republican just tell him the truth.

  7. IF THEY CROSS THE LINE AND GO AFTER A PRESIDENT, THAT CERTAINLY MEANS HE DID SOMETHING WRONG. BIGLY WRONG AS TRUMP WOULD CALL IT. THANKS FOR CONFIRMING THIS FOR US MR. TRUMP LAWYER.

  8. “A politically driven prosecution…that found 15 years worth of tax fraud.” Poor poor Donald Trump. When will he ever catch a break?

  9. We “haven’t had a prosecutor go after a former president” BECAUSE THEY DIDN’T HAVE A REASON TO.

    1. D. ALL THE PRESIDENTS HAVE BEEN CORRUPT TO A POINT CONNALD DUMP JUST HAPPENS TO BE MORE CORRUPT THAN ANY OTHER X PRESIDENTS.

    2. @James Wadsworth , Not true! Some were stand-up guys.
      Give one example of Obama being corrupt?

    3. @Larry Garland Or Jimmy Carter? No…Trump is famous for being corrupt-he is not to be considered a normal president by any means.

    4. @Larry Garland just look at the legal transcripts. There’s probably not much under Obama but there is always some.

  10. The Trump lawyer is longwinded and rambling. He knows he’s on the losing team.

    1. ..it never worked whining about the other kid having his hands in an even bigger cookie jar

  11. The point is : never before there has been such a CRIMINAL president in Usa history.
