Donald Trump is facing 10 counts of criminal charges against him over allegations that he attempted to overturn the 2020 presidential election.

Although the president has pleaded not guilty, the charges are not going anywhere.

Trump’s lawyer, on the other hand, believes that he is protected by the First Amendment and that the charges are politically motivated.

On Thursday, Trump’s attorney Steve Sadow, requested Fulton County Superior Court Judge Scott McAfee that he dismiss the charges as his actions are based on “core value political discourse”

These actions are protected by the First Amendment.

He said: “There is nothing alleged factually against President Trump that is not political speech. Take out the political speech. No criminal charges.”

To this, Prosecutor Donald Wakefor said “What we have heard today is an attempt to rewrite the indictment, to take out parts that are inconvenient, and say, ‘Well, it’s all speech.”

“It’s all talking.’ He was just a guy asking questions and not someone who was part of an overarching criminal conspiracy trying to overturn election results for an election he did not win.”

“It’s not that the defendant has been hauled into a courtroom because the prosecution doesn’t like what he said…He’s being prosecuted for lying to the government.”

While talking to Fox News on Thursday, Habba explained why the case brought up by Fani Willis against Trump should be dismissed.

Alina Said “What they argued today was very simple. A president has a right to speak—a human being, an American.”

“This country is based on the constitutional First Amendment rights to speech.”

“He had that right and he did so. He has also a right as the executive branch to question and provide election integrity.”

“God knows our country needs that right now…so that’s why we’re looking at this from a serious standpoint of constitutional violations.”

Trump is likely GOP candidate for the 2024 presidential race. This has brought more focus to the many legal issues he’s facing.

Trump is dealing with criminal charges for a few reasons. One is for allegedly paying off a porn star to keep quiet. Another is for not handling secret government papers the right way.

He’s also accused of trying to wrongly prevent Joe Biden from winning the 2020 election nationwide.

Trump says these legal actions are just because of politics and has said he didn’t do anything wrong in all the cases.
