Donald Trump’s attorney had an odd reason to protest the FBI’s ongoing criminal investigation into the former president — he thought the rules were “moral.”

For reference, Webster’s New World College Dictionary definition of mundane is “ordinary, everyday, ordinary.”

Alina Haba made the case to right-wing podcaster Charlie Kirk on Wednesday, as the Department of Justice (DOJ) probes archivists and the FBI to exfiltrate classified documents from Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home. A few hours after the cars released a devastating history of what they did. .

“They themselves say in the papers that they’ve filed … that it’s under the Presidential Records Act,” Haba told Kirk. “So what they did was try to frame Donald Trump as a criminal, as they always do. They found these three mundane laws: espionage and two others – obstruction. And they are trying to claim that there is some kind of criminal activity.

However, Haba may have a good reason for trying to minimize the investigation. According to the Daily Beast.

Haba said New York State Court that he conducted a “diligent” search of Mar-a-Lago on May 5 for a separate legal matter that included “all desks, drawers, nightstands, dressers, closets, etc.”

The DOJ then issued a subpoena six days later to retrieve classified documents from Mar-a-Lago. Habba’s discovery in the same area just days earlier raises questions about whether he held any records, The Daily Beast reports.

Not surprisingly, many Twitter users were unimpressed by Haba’s legal argument.

Others noted that apparently, Trump is bad at picking lawyers.

Some felt it necessary to point out that before Trump hired Haba, his legal career was largely limited to, As the Washington Post noted, Being the general counsel of a parking garage company and representing Trump-supporting cast member Siggy Flickr of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey.”

Finally, attorney Mark S. Zaid, who is trying to get the FBI to release its files on monkeys, offered some advice that works in any situation.
