Trump lawyers request meeting with AG Merrick Garland over unfair treatment in frank letter

Attorneys for former President Donald J. Trump have reacted to the possibility that the special counsel investigating him will soon bring charges against the 2024 GOP frontrunner by sending a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland requesting a sit-down with the nation’s top law enforcement official.

On Tuesday night, Trump posted a copy of the letter to Garland to his Truth Social platform, and while it isn’t clear what the catalyst for the request was, The Wall Street Journal had earlier reported that Jack Smith’s team of prosecutors was wrapping up the probe into the classified documents at Mar-a-Lago and had completed interviewing “nearly every employee” at the former president’s South Florida home which was raided by the FBI in an unprecedented action signed off on by the attorney general last summer.

The letter, which is addressed to Garland and signed by Trump’s lawyers John Rowley and Jim Trusty, states, “We represent Donald J. Trump, the 45th President of the United States, in the investigation currently being conducted by the Special Counsel’s Office. Unlike President Biden, his son Hunter, and the Biden family, President Trump is being treated unfairly.”

“No President of the United States has ever, in the history of our country, been baselessly investigated in such an outrageous and unlawful fashion. We request a meeting at your earliest convenience to discuss the ongoing injustice that is being perpetrated by your Special Counsel and his prosecutors,” the letter reads.

The letter comes on the heels of the long-awaited report by special counsel John Durham on the origins of the Russia collusion hoax that completely vindicated the ex-POTUS who was framed by the FBI along with operatives for embittered failed Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and tried in the media for a scam that inflicted enormous damage upon once-respected institutions, not the least of which has been a loss of faith in the FBI which millions of Americans now view as the secret police acting as enforcers for today’s mutated version of the Democratic Party.

According to the Wall Street Journal which cites the usual anonymous sources, “Some of Trump’s close associates are bracing for his indictment and anticipate being able to fundraise off a prosecution, people in the former president’s circle said, as clashes within the Trump legal team have led to the departure of a key lawyer.”

Trump has repeatedly lashed out at the endless probes into him and previously called Smith, a former war crimes prosecutor at The Hague who was tabbed for the latest iteration of the yearslong witch hunt, as a “SLIMEBALL” in a Truth Social post.

Last week, the GOP frontrunner again blasted Smith as a ‘Trump hating special prosecutor” while accusing Democrats of “working overtime” on their “treasonous quest” against him, which he said was election interference.

The Associated Press notes that “It is not uncommon for defense lawyers to seek meetings with senior Justice Department officials to argue against potential indictments of their clients, though it is unusual for such meetings to include the attorney general.”

It is unknown why Trump believes that he may be able to appeal to Garland, a man who has headed up the Biden regime’s war on him and his supporters.
