Alina Habba, the attorney representing former President Donald Trump, engaged in a discussion with Steve Doocy, one of the co-hosts of Fox & Friends, on Wednesday. The conversation revolved around Doocy’s increasing doubt regarding the arguments put forth by Trump and his supporters.
Habba made an appearance on the show to engage in a discussion on the new indictment issued by Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis against former President Donald Trump. Habba first refuted the allegations, stating that there had been a violation of Trump’s right to due process.
However, the discussion became more intense when Doocy introduced an article from the New York Post authored by Fox News legal contributor Andy McCarthy, who posited that Trump may potentially face significant legal ramifications.
“I’ve heard from a lot of legal analysts, and they say what is different about this case than the federal cases is Georgia has laws that are specifically tailored to election interference and things like that,” Doocy began. “Andy McCarthy, a Fox News contributor, and also, he wrote an op-ed in the New York Post, he said that the Georgia indictment is the most perilous threat to former President Trump. Does President Trump know that this is a perilous threat?”
On Monday, a comprehensive indictment consisting of 41 counts was made public, naming former President Trump and 18 co-defendants as the accused parties.
The ex-president is facing allegations of 13 charges, which encompass three instances of soliciting a public official to breach an oath, two instances of conspiring to commit first-degree forgery, two instances of fabricating false statements and writings, one instance of contravening the Georgia RICO Act, one instance of assuming the identity of a public official, one instance of submitting false documents, and one instance of filing fraudulent documents.
According to Fulton County, the remaining 18 individuals who have been charged include Jenna Ellis, Rudy Giuliani, Sidney Powell, Robert Cheeley, John Eastman, Ray Smith III, Cathy Latham, Mark Meadows, David Shafer, Shawn Still, Kenneth Chesebro, Michael Roman, Misty Hampton, Stephen Lee, Trevian Kutti, Willie Lewis Floyd III, Jeffrey Clark, and Scott Hall. These individuals encompass a range of professions such as lawyers, former White House chief of staff, alleged fake electors, Trump campaign staffer, elections supervisor, pastor, publicist, former leader of “Black Voices for Trump,” former DOJ official, and bail bondsman, as reported by the Daily Wire.
Following the public disclosure of the indictment, the Trump campaign issued a statement characterizing DA Willis as a fervent partisan who is actively engaged in campaigning and soliciting funds with the objective of prosecuting President Trump based on these spurious charges.
According to the assertion, Willis “strategically stalled her investigation to try and maximally interfere with the 2024 presidential race and damage the dominant Trump campaign” Furthermore, the aforementioned allegations were purportedly “fabricated.”
Governor Brian Kemp of the Republican Party in Georgia issued a response to the comments made by former President Donald Trump, asserting that the 2020 election held in his state was not subject to any fraudulent manipulation.
“The 2020 election in Georgia was not stolen. For nearly three years now, anyone with evidence of fraud has failed to come forward – under oath – and prove anything in a court of law. Our elections in Georgia are secure, accessible, and fair and will continue to be as long as I am governor. The future of our country is at stake in 2024 and that must be our focus,” Kemp posted on Twitter (now known as X).
Habba responded by expressing disagreement with the notion that the danger is serious, citing access to privileged information as the basis for this viewpoint.
“And we do not agree that it is a perilous threat because we actually have inside information,” Habba asserted.
“What inside information?” Doocy inquired.
“The inside information, Steve,” She wasted no time in responding and took an amicable jab at Doocy, “And you know, you used to love Trump… I got to tell you.”
Habba added, “This is something I’m not going to breach, right? I have confidentiality, and I have ethics, and I’m going to continue.”
Subsequently, she returned to her previous stance of defending Trump’s actions by emphasizing his pursuit of legal advice. She proceeded to criticize what she interpreted as biased allegations, ultimately posing the inquiry, “What about Hillary Clinton?”

Wednesday, Trump made a commitment to provide a study that he claims would be “irrefutable” about his allegations of electoral misconduct in Georgia.
Mr. Trump announced that a comprehensive and meticulously crafted report about the alleged instances of electoral fraud during the Presidential Election in Georgia is nearing completion. He further stated that he will be presenting this report in a significant press conference scheduled for 11:00 am on the upcoming Monday.
Trump characterized the comprehensive list of charges presented by a grand jury in Fulton County as an endeavor to impede his candidacy in the next election, asserting that the ongoing investigation is akin to a witch hunt.
