It positive looks like Trump’s legal professional thinks he’ll be indicted

Trump’s attorney Christina Bobb argued that Trump should not be criminally charged over the comments made by the special chairman of the Georgia grand jury. Essentially, Bobb was attempting to ward off criminal charges.


Trump attorney Christina Bobb says Trump should not be indicted in GA because the grand juror interviews “spoiled the jury pool for a future trial.” “There should be no indictment, the jury pool has been corrupted.”

Bobb said that the previous person “completely spoiled the jury pool, because now you have a whole jury pool of people who believe there’s a crime that President Trump or his allies committed, but nobody knows what.” It is. So here they are trying to get ahead of the game and try to pollute the jury, try to make the public believe there is a crime here without giving them a chance to defend themselves… It should mean there isn’t charges. The jury pool has been tainted. Every defendant, whether President Trump or his allies, all have had their constitutional rights violated by this media tour by the prosecutor allowing this insanity.”

Everything Trump’s attorney said above was wrong. The judge overseeing the special grand jury said the foreman’s comments did not break the rules. The special grand jury has nothing to do with indictments. They are an investigative agency that makes recommendations.

DA Fani Willis will convene a second grand jury to vote on possible charges. The special grand jury foreman never named Trump or any of his allies, so a possible future jury pool could not be spoiled.

There is no reason for Trump’s attorney to make that argument unless they believe he will be indicted.

If the phone calls were as perfect as Trump claims, there would be no worries of indictment. It’s not the prosecution trying to pre-empt the case, it’s Trump.

By launching a pre-emptive defense, Trump and his legal team are admitting they believe he will be charged.
