Trump's Lawyer Reveals the Advice She's Given Him About Plea Deal in Docs Case

Former President Donald Trump’s attorney shared her plea deal advice to him after he was indicted over his handling of classified documents.

Last week, Trump was indicted on 37 counts by the Justice Department including 31 counts of “Willful Retention of National Defense Information,” and one count each of “Conspiracy to Obstruct Justice,” “Withholding a Document or Record,” “Corruptly Concealing a Document or Record,” “Concealing a Document in a Federal Investigation,” “Scheme to Conceal,” and “False Statements and Representations.”

"I know, I would never advise that, especially when he's not done anything wrong. You take a plea deal to make something go away," attorney Alina Habba said during an appearance on “Fox News Sunday,” according to Fox News.

"That's an admission of guilt. He would never admit guilt. Because there was nothing wrong with declassifying documents, taking documents with you,” she said.

Habba said a defendant seeks a deal “when you’ve done something wrong or when you have no shot. We have strong defenses.”

“The only thing that was wrong was the raid on his home and the complete dual-tier system of justice that we’re seeing here, when the Biden family is being treated completely differently than the Trump family,” she said, according to The Hill.

Habba warned against jumping to conclusions based on the indictment.

"An indictment is a one-sided document," Habba told Fox News.

“There is context to everything. That context will be brought out on defense. And that’s going to be our opportunity. We have not had an opportunity to give our side,” she also said, according to Politico.

Habba said Trump “has every right to have classified documents that he declassified under the Presidential Records Act.”

She said Trump’s critics are “making it sound like a five-alarm fire. It’s a very simple thing that everybody -- and we’ve seen numerous people able to take it. And frankly, he was the only one that could take classified documents that he declassified under the Presidential Records Act,” according to Mediaite.

In a Friday interview, Habba said she was disgusted with the way the law was being misused, according to the Independent.

“I'm embarrassed to be a lawyer at this moment. Honestly, I am ashamed. I'm ashamed to be a lawyer. I'm ashamed that this is the state of our country,” she said.

Habba said it was “obvious that there's this dual system of justice. This is selective prosecution, selective persecution. It is absolute persecution. It is Russia third world stuff, and it should not be happening.”

Habba’s advice to fight back is fully in sync with her client. Trump was asked Saturday what would happen to his presidential campaign if he were convicted.

“I’ll never leave,” Trump said, according to Politico.
