Trump Seeks Authorized Recommendation From Proper-wing Activist Tom Fitton, Who’s NOT A Lawyer

President of Judicial Oversight and MAGA Loyalist Tom Fitton began providing legal advice to former President Donald Trump soon after the National Archives admitted in February it had retrieved 15 boxes of records from Mar-a-Lago, CNN reported on Thursday. Fitton, who is not a lawyer but is one of the worst misinformation providers about Trump’s defeat in the 2020 election, reportedly advised the former president not to provide any additional records to the archives. The far-right media magnate also reportedly told Trump that his team shouldn’t let the archives “reinforce” them to restore other records. “When Tom gets into the boss’ ear, it goes downhill from there,” one person close to Trump told CNN. Another source added that Trump “began to become obsessed with Fitton’s arguments” and “even asked Fitton at one point to brief his lawyers.” This all came as Trump publicly claimed to be cooperating with the administration on the document. The former president is currently being investigated for violating the Espionage Act and illegally storing classified material, according to a search warrant used to raid his house this month. The edited statement on the back of the search warrant Will be released by the Justice Department on Friday.
