Alina Habba, one of the lawyers defending Donald Trump, was all over television this week. She claimed that her looks were more important than her credentials. She attacked any and all of Donald Trump's courtroom opponents. And she issued what seemed like a veiled threat to a member of the Supreme Court.
"I think it (the decision of Trump's immunity) should be a slam dunk in the Supreme Court. I have faith in them," she said this week. "You know, people like Kavanaugh, who the president fought for, who the president went through hell to get into place. He'll step up."
Former prosecutor Joyce Vance was asked about Habba's words toward Kavanaugh this weekend. "That was a really appalling statement for any lawyer to make, and particularly a lawyer involved in a contest like this," Vance said. "All federal judges are appointed by a president from one party or another. And we expect all of them to leave that political origin story at the door when they take the bench."
The legal expert continued, "They decide cases based on the law and the facts, and not on the president who got them there. So, I think that this is, in many ways, impugning the character of some of the Supreme Court justices. I hope they're deeply offended by her comments. They should be.'
