Alina Habba Accidentally Admits Donald Trump Could Be Totally Bought [View all]


On Thursday, the GOP presidential nominee’s attorney, Alina Habba, failed to say that Trump definitely would not turn to a foreign country if it meant he could secure bond money to cover his $464 million bank fraud penalty.

“Is there any effort on the part of your team to secure this money through another country, Saudi Arabia or Russia, as Joy Behar seems to think?” asked Fox News’s Martha MacCallum, referring to a recent episode of The View in which Behar speculated that such a move—that is, having a president bought and sold by potentially hostile foreign powers—could be a cataclysmic national security threat.

But none of that fazed Habba, who completely sidestepped answering the question and failed the very basic test of answering “no.”

“Well, there’s rules and regulations that are public,” Habba replied. “I can’t speak about strategy, that requires certain things and we have to follow those rules. Like I said, this is manifest injustice. It is impossible, it’s an impossibility. I believe they knew that.”

I believe that Trump's ethics, moral standards and high regard for the Constitution would prevent him from being bought by a foreign power.

I don't believe *rump has any ethics, moral standards or regard for the Constitution to prevent him from being bought by a foreign power.

I believe this is water under the bridge, and the United States just needs a good title search to determine who the rightful owner is.
