Former President Donald Trump’s legal team is seeking classified documents from the Justice Department for his upcoming criminal trial, aiming to argue that he was right to doubt the 2020 election results.

They are requesting records from past government investigations, including those related to election interference, to support Trump’s defense.

The defense team is also seeking access to more classified information and evidence about investigations into foreign nations’ attempts to influence elections. (Trending: Biden Shamefully Removes God From National Address)

“President Trump is entitled to all information supporting his position that his concerns regarding fraud during the 2020 election—rather than ‘knowingly false’ or criminal—were plausible and maintained in good faith,” Trump’s lawyers wrote.

“To prop up the Biden Administration’s preferred political advocacy regarding the 2020 election, the indictment endorses the alleged views of ‘Senior White House Attorneys,’ ‘senior leaders of the Justice Department,’ ‘the Intelligence Community,’ the ‘Department of Homeland Security’s Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency.’”

“Evidence of covert foreign disinformation campaigns relating to the 2020 election supports the defense argument that President Trump and others acted in good faith even if certain reports were ultimately determined to be inaccurate,” Trump’s lawyers stated.

Prosecutors, the attorneys pressed, “cannot blame President Trump for public discord and distrust of the 2020 election results while refusing to turn over evidence that foreign actors stoked the very same flames that the Office identifies as inculpatory in the indictment.”

Additionally, they are looking into a probe related to former Vice President Mike Pence.

“The potential criminal charges faced by Vice President Pence gave him an incentive to curry favor with authorities by providing information that is consistent with the Biden Administration’s preferred, and false, narrative regarding this case,” Trump’s lawyers said.

The trial is set to begin in March, and it’s yet to be determined if Trump will be able to make these arguments before a jury.
