Glenn Kirschner, a former federal prosecutor, claimed on Sunday that former President Donald Trump had committed “crimes against” those who continued to support him in spite of his repeated, contentious conduct.
Kirschner discussed Trump’s Save America PAC, which just reportedly paid $3 million as a retainer to cover the legal bills of Chris Kise, a new attorney hired for the former president, during an edition of his show Justice Matters that was broadcast on YouTube.
Kise, a former Florida solicitor general, is anticipated to work with Trump’s defense team, which may be preparing for a possible court battle over the secret documents that the FBI confiscated from Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence last month.
Trump’s supporters, according to the former federal prosecutor, “so they’re being indicted, tried, convicted and imprisoned, while presumably some of them continue to send the few dollars they have to Donald Trump’s Save America PAC so he can do what? so he can take their money and pay his own criminal defense attorney.”
The Save America PAC website, which contains a tab requesting funds to “Save America” and support Trump, was the source of Kirschner’s reference.
“So, while his supporters go to prison, Donald Trump can continue to play golf and hold hate rallies and fundraisers,” he added. “There is a deep, disturbing injustice in America right now and it will only be remedied if Donald Trump is indicted, and tried and convicted and punished for his crimes against the United States, for his crimes against we the people, for his crimes against some of his own supporters.”
Additionally, there was a message on the Save America PAC website “The future of our Country is at stake and president Trump is calling on all Patriots to join his fight to Save America. Will you step up?”
“So I may have missed the part where it said your hard-earned dollars if you donate to Donald Trump’s Save America PAC, will be going to pay exorbitantly high retainer fees that Donald Trump has to pay because he usually stiffs his criminal defense lawyers,” Kirschner said on Sunday, He continued by saying that Trump’s fans could not afford to hire criminal defense lawyers for $3 million.
“The boots of the insurrection, Donald Trump’s foot soldiers, the people who were lied to, duped and deceived into believing that their vote was stolen, their election was stolen, their president was stolen. The people who were directed by Donald Trump to march on the Capitol ‘fight like hell or you won’t have a country anymore,'” Kirschner added.
FBI investigators searched Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort last month and found secret documents that the former president had taken from the White House and maintained after leaving office. According to reports, the documents contained critical information about nuclear weapons and “highly classified programs.”
Trump claims that he declassified the records before leaving office and has denied any misconduct over keeping them. He claimed to have the ability to do so after leaving office, but Mary McCord, a former justice department employee, denied this, according to Reuters.
Raymond Dearie, a former federal chief judge in New York, has been assigned as a special master who will examine the confiscated papers to see if any of the information qualifies for the executive privilege or attorney-client privilege. By November 30, Dearie is supposed to have finished the evaluation.
