Former President Donald Trump’s attorney, Alina Habba, spoke with the folks at Newsmax where she took an opportunity to completely shred the FBI over the raid of his residence in the state of Florida, referring to it as a “public spectacle” designed to help Democrats distract the American people away from the many, many failures of President Joe Biden before the midterm elections, which, honestly, are not looking too good for the current administration.
“This is a very normal system. The president leaves, they declassify it and let’s say there’s something [the National Archives] wants back, they work with them to get it back. It happens all the time. It’s very normal,” Habba went on to say on “National Report.” “[What] they have done is to take something that is incredibly routine and make it a public spectacle. Why? Because in November we have a midterm election, and the Democrats are not leading.”
“We have inflation; we have issues because President Biden [has] really caused a problem for them,” she continued.
Habba, who is based in New Jersey and a managing partner of the Habba Madaio & Associates law firm has been representing the former president in several different cases and is currently licensed to practice law in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, and the United States District Court, according to the firm’s website.
“Even if there was classified nuclear codes, as they say, which I would be shocked, but even if there was, when you are cooperating, there is no need to send in 30 FBI agents with guns into somebody’s home, let alone a former president; [it] doesn’t make sense,” Habba remarked.

“While the Department of Justice released the search warrant and a property list of what was seized during last week’s search of the Palm Beach, Florida home and resort, it is opposing Trump’s call to release the sworn affidavit citing the ‘probable cause’ for executing the unprecedented search warrant on the former president,” Newsmax reported.
“If disclosed, the affidavit would serve as a roadmap to the government’s ongoing investigation, providing specific details about its direction and likely course, in a manner that is highly likely to compromise future investigative steps,” Reuters reported prosecutors went on to write in their court filing Monday to keep the document sealed.
There were several news outlets, including the Washington Post, NBC News, and CNN who went on to say in their news filings on Monday that due to the high profile of launching a criminal investigation into a former sitting president calls for the release of the affidavit.
“Not since the Nixon administration has a president been the subject of such a dramatic and public criminal process,” CNN reported the outlets said in the filing, going on to add that the outlets are “attempting to shed light on the federal government’s unprecedented actions and motivations.”
“Here, there could not be a more ‘historically significant event’ than an FBI raid of a former President’s home for the alleged removal of national security records after leaving office,” they stated.
Trump also made a call for the release of the “un-redacted” documents in a post published on his Truth Social account on Monday.
“There is no way to justify the unannounced rate of Mara Lago, the home of the 45th, president of the United States, who got more votes by far than any sitting president in the history of our country, by a very large number of gun-toting FBI agents and the department of justice,” the former president’s post read. “In the interest of transparency, I call for the immediate release of the completely un-redacted affidavit pertaining to this horrible and shocking break-in.”
Habba is right on the money. There’s no doubt the leftists in the government used this raid as a distraction. But I remain convinced that wasn’t the only purpose for it. I still believe that they were hoping to just happen across some sort of evidence that they could twist up and use as a means of disqualifying Trump from running in 2024.
We won’t know until a thorough investigation is done, and that can only happen if the Republican Party takes control over both chambers of Congress this November.
