Trump attorney thanks Georgia DA for taking Trump's mugshot

August 28, 2023

Democrats have struggled with weaponizing the justice system against former President Donald Trump.

His latest indictment, brought forth by Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis, included his first mugshot, which has been nothing less than an absolute political blessing for Trump and his campaign.

It was such a gift that Alina Habba, attorney and legal spokesman for the former president, publicly thanked Willis for the mugshot, explaining how it has provided a welcomed super boost to Trump's 2024 presidential campaign.

Habba made the remarks during a recent Newsmax interview, saying at one point, "Thank you, Fani."

Habba described the release of the former president's mugshot as a "power play that got reversed on her," referring to Willis.

"They didn't need the mug shot," Habba said. "It was, I guess to her, probably a trophy, but thank you because now the trophy actually became ours."

Trump and his 2024 campaign team used the mugshot in brilliant fashion, posting it to Twitter -- his first tweet in over two years -- and every other social media profile, garnering hundreds of millions of views and a record-setting fundraising haul in the first 24 hours.

The mugshot has been used as a symbol of what happens when a country goes from a democracy to a banana republic, and the former president continues to steam ahead in both state and national polling.

"The American people aren't stupid. The mug shot was probably one of the best things that ever happened to him probably at this point, so thank you, Fani," Habba said during the interview.

Like Trump and his surrogates and supporters, Habba argued that the indictments her client faces amount to nothing less than "election interference."

That was evidenced again in past days after it was announced that the judge overseeing one of Trump's cases set a trial date for March 4, 2024 -- just one day before "Super Tuesday" in the 2024 GOP primary vote.

Many hope that Trump is indicted again so that he can raise additional mountains of campaign cash and gain in his double-digit lead against all of his opponents. What a time to be alive.
