Attorney Alina Habba discussed representing former president Donald Trump in an interview.

While some attorneys avoid representing Trump due to career implications, Habba said she is proud of her work and wouldn’t do anything differently.

“What would you say to Letitia James if you ran into her on the street and you weren’t a lawyer in this case?” Rob Finnerty asked.

“If I wasn’t a lawyer in this case? I was a normal person?” Habba said.

“You’re just Alina Habba,” Finnerty said.

“I can’t say that on national television,” Habba quipped. “I would, I would honestly, at this point, you know she’s in so deep. Her press conference says it all. I would tell her to show me that no one is above the law and start applying the law to her own.”

“Since you hooked on with the former president and started representing him, your career has skyrocketed. I think Alina Habba is now it’s a household name. Really? But you’re young. You’re young in your career. How concerned are you about what this could mean for your reputation down the road?” Finnerty asked.

“In terms of what?” Habba asked.

“Well, there are a lot of attorneys out there that no longer want to represent the former president. Right or wrong. I’m not casting judgment right or wrong because of what it — the implications it has for their careers. And you’ve got a bright future seemingly,” Finnerty said.

“I have to tell you the truth, I wouldn’t do anything differently,” Habba said.

She believes losses in court are due to Trump’s political stature, not facts or lawyering.

“I’m so proud of the work that I’ve done. And any attorney who reads transcripts and looks at the rulings that we got before we got into court, evidentiary rulings, things like that, losses that have happened. And we’ve had wins, many wins, but nobody reports them. But the losses that have happened are not a result of the facts not being on our side or bad lawyering,” she said.

Habba dismissed criticism as “trolls” and said she is honored to work for a past and future president as part of fixing the country.

Meanwhile, Habba cited Special Counsel Robert Hur’s report on Joe Biden mishandling documents as evidence of a two-tiered justice system.
“They are a result of the fact that he is the leading candidate for the Republican Party and, frankly, for president in general. So I can say that, look, trolls will be trolls, and I would never change a thing. I am proud of the work I’ve done, and it is truly an honor to work for a sitting, a former president, and, a future president again. So as for anybody else that has an issue with that, that can’t see through that, you’re just, you’re you’re not looking at the big picture here. We’re changing the country and fixing the country, and I’m proud to be part of that mission,” she said.

She argued charges against Trump should be dropped so Americans believe the system treats all equally regardless of politics.

However, Habba was skeptical authorities are capable of applying justice impartially due to “Trump Derangement Syndrome.”

“I think the one thing that we learned today from special counsel her is that there is, in fact, and not that we didn’t know it. Sean. Two systems of justice. One, if you’re a Republican, one if you’re a Democrat. We’ve seen it time and time again. You’ve spoken of it the way that this can be used,” she said.

“They need to drop charges and let Americans believe that we’re not going to be treated differently depending on our politics. I don’t think they’re capable of it. I think they have severe Trump Derangement Syndrome,” she added.
