President Donald Trump’s attorney Alina Habba shut down Don Lemon live on air after the CNN host defended Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg.
Trump will be arraigned Tuesday in Bragg’s politically motivated case.
Leaks to the corporate media revealed that Trump will be arraigned on 30-34 counts.
During an interview on “CNN This Morning,” Habba turned the tables on Lemon by reminding him that someone in the DA’s office leaked the number of counts in Trump’s indictment to the media.
As Habba notes, the leaks could only have come from Bragg’s office as Trump’s legal didn’t have the information that was passed to the media.
This is a major violation of legal and professional ethics.
Habba believes that the leak could be a felony, but as the number of counts would be released to the public with the indictment, leaking them is most likely not a felony offense.
But Bragg does have some exposure here.
If the leak violated the defendant’s right to a fair trial, it could lead to legal action against the Manhattan DA’s office or the individual leaker.
Bragg’s legal exposure will depend on the circumstances of the case and the laws of the jurisdiction.
The circumstances are a problem for Bragg.
Habba told Lemon: “Let’s remember that the real crime here that we have is that DA Bragg did leak that there were 30 to 34 counts.
“We already know that that in itself is a felony.
“You are not to let that go,” she asserted.
“So at this point, I like everybody in this country to be treated the same no matter what we do.”
“We don’t know if the DA leaked that information,” Lemon responded.
“That is speculation.”
“Well, it’s not speculation,” Habba said.
“We don’t have the information, so it came from their office.”
”We know what’s in it. It’s a bunch of garbage. ”
