Legal professionals assert that Trump has undermined his own legal defense significantly.


Legal experts have stated that Donald Trump undermined one of his legal defenses during his interview with NBC’s Kristen Welker on “Meet The Press” aired on Sunday.

Trump informed Welker that he personally made the decision to contest the outcome of the 2020 election, rather than relying on his legal team.

Welker inquired if Trump was the one making the decisions as the President. Trump responded by acknowledging that he believed the election was rigged and that he made the final call, but he also took into consideration the opinions of others.

According to Laurence Tribe, a constitutional law professor at Harvard, Trump completely disregarded his defense strategy of following his lawyers’ advice.

“No, allow me to rectify that: not only thrown under the bus, but placed beneath a thunderous, accelerating, colossal freight train,” Tribe remarked on X, previously known as Twitter.

Neal Katyal, who previously served as acting Solicitor General, concurred during his appearance on MSNBC’s “Inside With Jen Psaki.”

The former DOJ official from the Obama administration stated that Trump’s remark has significantly simplified the election obstruction case against him, led by U.S. District Judge Tanya Chutkan.

Andrew Weissmann, a former federal prosecutor, pointed out to Psaki that the former president’s statement was actually a “twofer” admission. This is because Trump not only admitted to Welker that he had demanded the votes to cease being counted.

Weissmann explained that it is not permissible for him to publicly instruct NBC to cease counting the votes.
