Alina Habba, a lawyer for Donald Trump, suggested that Justice Brett Kavanaugh would rule in favor of the former president in a case before the Supreme Court.

She mentioned that Trump has concerns about conservative justices ruling against him due to political perceptions.

However, she also stated that the case should be a “slam dunk” in the Supreme Court, indicating confidence in a favorable outcome. (Trending: Sports Icon Dies Suddenly At 56)

This drew criticism from CNN hosts and legal experts, who found her remarks to be unprecedented and unprofessional, with some likening it to a quid pro quo.

“That’s a concern that he’s voiced to me, he’s voiced to everybody publicly, not privately. And I can tell you that his concern is a valid one,” Habba said.

“They’re trying so hard to look neutral that sometimes they make the wrong call.”

“You know people like Kavanaugh ― who the president fought for, who the president went through hell to get into place ― he’ll step up,” she said.

“Those people will step up. Not because they’re pro-Trump but because they’re pro-law.”

“Because they’re pro-fairness, and the law on this is very clear.”

“If a Democrat said that about the Justice Department or Merrick Garland or fill-in-the-blank here, there would be an absolute implosion. That’s bonkers,” CNN’s Phil Mattingly said.

“She’s saying the quiet part out loud,” added John Avlon.

“She’s saying that Brett Kavanaugh will step up and side with the president because he appointed him. That goes against every basic idea of law and independence of the judiciary. And frankly, it puts Kavanaugh in a bit of a box.”

“That’s not how this works,” attorney Bradley Moss wrote online.

“Imagine for a second if a lawyer for Clinton, Obama or Biden said this. It’d be a massive scandal at Fox,” he added.

“Alina Habba saying the quid pro quo part out loud here,” MSNBC legal analyst Katie Phang said.

“Yet another example of Habba demonstrating how unprofessional she is as an attorney,” lawyer Mark Zaid added.
