Former federal prosecutor Andrew Weissmann criticized Donald Trump’s attorneys for asking a judge to hold special counsel Jack Smith in contempt of court.

Trump’s team argued that Smith violated a stay order, but Weissmann suggested the lawyers may lack control over their client and are pandering to the MAGA base.

He explained that the stay is to protect the defense, and Trump’s team doesn’t need to act until the appeal is resolved. (Trending: Sports Icon Dies Suddenly At 56)

Weissmann also noted that Smith’s team was being helpful and that Trump’s attorneys are writing for an audience unrelated to the court.

“I think that this is a real sign of the lawyers not being able to say no to their client,” Weissmann said.

“As somebody in the legal profession, it is disappointing.”

“They continued filing things and gave discovery to the defense. Usually that’s not something that the defense complains about. They want discovery,” he said.

Trump’s team has used delay tactics and performative antics in response to the prosecutions against him.
