Former Solicitor General says Trump hoping for GOP win so they can drop prosecution

Former Acting Solicitor General Neal Katyal said that former President Donald Trump hopes a GOP presidential candidate wins in 2024 so the Justice Department can drop the prosecution against him.

Katyal shared the remarks during an interview on MSNBC's "The Last Word" Thursday.

The comments

“I don’t think even Trump believes that this is a legal defense. I think this is a political defense," he said about Trump's recent rally remarks over keeping classified documents in his Florida home.

"He’s throwing up a lot of spaghetti at the wall and hoping that that will delay the trial and cause enough doubt so that if, in 2024, he or some other Republican wins, they can just drop the prosecution. And I think that’s all that’s going on. This is a political game. These are not legal arguments," he added.

More charges may come

The report comes as Trump potentially faces even more charges related to the classified documents allegedly found in his Mar-a-Lago home during an FBI raid last year.

"Jack Smith is reportedly preparing to hit President Trump with 45 additional charges as a ‘backup plan’ should Judge Aileen Cannon, a Trump appointee, delay or thwart the classified documents case currently in the Southern District of Florida," the Gateway Pundit reported.

"The additional charges are expected 'in the coming weeks,'” according to the report.

Trump aide arrested

The news also comes as Trump aide Walt Nauta was charged over his role in the classified documents case.

former U.S. attorney Joyce Vance "said that newly unsealed evidence that the Justice Department used to obtain a search warrant for Trump's Mar-a-Lago residence presents an 'overwhelming' case against Trump and Nauta," Raw Story reported.

"A portion of the unsealed evidence shows Nauta moving boxes days before the Justice Department discovered classified documents at Mar-a-Lago. Nauta reportedly removed around 64 boxes from the storage room but only returned around 25 to 30 of them," it added.

The case continues to heat up with Trump's hopes potentially riding on whether he or another Republican wins the presidency in 2024.
