Former Trump lawyer says DOJ indictment contains grounds for 'dismissal'

Lawyers and legal scholars have come out of the woodwork to analyze the latest indictment faced by former President Donald Trump, with many indicating that the current indictment is much more severe than the one issued by Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg. 

But at least one high-level attorney believes that Special Counsel Jack Smith's indictment regarding Trump's classified documents probe contains grounds for a "dismissal."

Jeffrey Clark, a former assistant attorney general under the Trump administration, shared his thoughts on what could be a ticket out of legal trouble for the former president.

"I'm beginning to read the indictment against Trump. But even three pages in, it's clear that the leaks that preceded the indictment are far too close to what is actually being pleaded by DOJ to be a coincidence. For example, in paragraph 6a on page 3, we hear about the recording of the Bedminster call, which the MSNBC's of the world have been beating a dead horse about for quite a while based on such leaks. This means that Trump lawyers could not possibly be the source of the leaks," Clark tweeted.

He added: "Ergo, the leaks are coming from DOJ. They must be investigated and punished. Also, this is grounds for granting a motion highlighting jury pool poisoning and dismissing the indictment before it reaches even its one-month birthday."

"All of this is so outrageous; it shocks the conscience. It's fundamentally anti-American. Trump Witch Hunt Number ... what? I've lost count. Let's call it Trump Witch Hunt #99," he continued.

While the former president has received intense amounts of criticism and praise in the wake of the indictment news, it doesn't seem to bother those who support him.

Many took to social media to express their anger over what appears to be a clear double standard when it comes to prosecuting certain political figures and essentially ignoring others who've committed much more egregious crimes.

"I never thought that I would say this but I will vote for Trump even if he is sitting in a jail cell as a convicted felon. I’m a military and LE veteran and I refuse to be a part of us becoming a third world country with a corrupt Administration, DOJ and FBI. We must prevail," one Twitter user wrote.

Another Twitter user added: "They know the majority of people aren’t going to read through all that word for word. Folks are going to wait for their favorite pundit to copy/paste cherry-picked slices to post along with their comments “proving” guilt."

Trump has long argued that he's done nothing illegal pertaining to the handling of the classified documents that were stored at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida.

Only time will tell which side emerges victorious, but it's clear that neither side is holding anything back.
