In a federal court filing, Donald Trump’s lawyers argue that he had a “good faith” basis to question the 2020 election results, asserting that he was not obligated to accept government officials’ judgments and suggesting potential foreign interference.

The defense seeks permission to obtain information on foreign influence and election infrastructure compromises, aiming to cast doubt on the election’s legitimacy and justify Trump’s skepticism.

They also request documents related to the Capitol riot, claiming that Trump is shielded from prosecution by presidential immunity and that the charges violate his First Amendment rights. (Trending: Chilling Surveillance Program Under Biden Exposed)

“It was not unreasonable at the time, and certainly not criminal, for President Trump to disagree with officials now favored by the prosecution and to rely instead on the independent judgment that the American people elected him to use while leading the country,” the lawyers wrote.

“The Office 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,” the motion says.

“The Office cannot rely on selected guidance and judgments by officials it favors from the Intelligence Community and law enforcement while ignoring evidence of political bias in those officials’ decision-making as well as cyberattacks and other interference, both actual and attempted, that targeted critical infrastructure and election facilities before, during, and after the 2020 election.”
