Trump knocks ‘naive’ Shannon Bream over Alina Habba interview

Former President Donald Trump on Wednesday called Fox News’ Shannon Bream “naive” for refuting claims by his lawyers that Trump’s hush-money criminal trial was ordered by the White House.

In an interview with Trump lawyer and spokeswoman Alina Hubba, Bream said President Biden is “not responsible” for the trial and rejected Hubba’s false assertion that the case was politically orchestrated from on high.

“I had no idea Shannon Bream was so ‘naive,'” Trump said. Authentic Social Posts On Wednesday, he called the idea that Biden was not involved in the incident “foolish.”

“Not only is he involved, he’s effectively leading this trial and all the others – leading his people – because he’s not smart enough to lead anything!,” he continued. “Just look at the involvement of the thugs in the Department of Justice and the White House and everything else.”

The former president added: “Biden is so incompetent he thinks weaponization is the only way to win. He’s relying on the Shannon Breams of the world to get there. Bad day for Shannon!”

In his interview with Haba, Bream noted that the former president’s hush money criminal case is being led by New York prosecutors, not federal prosecutors, and that even if there is political influence in the case, it is not coming from Biden.

“This is a state case,” Bream explained. [Democratic Manhattan District Attorney] “Alvin Bragg. Whether you think he was politically motivated or not, that has nothing to do with the Department of Justice. … I mean, the federal government has dismissed these election charges.”

Federal prosecutors have previously declined to bring charges against Trump over allegations that he illegally concealed hush money paid to cover up allegations of an affair in the weeks before the 2016 election, a charge he denies.

The former president has pleaded not guilty in the case to 34 charges including falsifying business records, and his political allies have repeatedly argued that the charges against him are political and aimed at preventing him from winning a second term in the White House this fall.

A New York jury began deliberating a verdict in the case Wednesday morning.

Trump also faces two federal and state criminal charges for attempting to remain in office after the 2020 election, as well as a federal lawsuit for keeping classified White House records after his term ended and refusing to return them.
