The legal geniuses that have represented Donald Trump over the years have not exactly distinguished themselves as paragons of their profession. They include the likes of Rudy Giuliani, whose license to practice has been suspended, and QAnon adherent, Sidney Powell. And those may be the cream of the crock.
A more recent addition to the team is Christina Bobb, who Trump recruited from her prior job as a host on the One America News Network (OAN). Bobb’s job duties didn’t change much when she joined the Trump legal staff. She made television appearances on OAN where she devotedly defended everything Trump did, no matter how obviously illegal and/or immoral. And she does precisely the same thing now as his lawyer.
Amid the controversies surrounding the FBI search of Trump’s Mar-a-Lago bunker, Bobb has been making the rounds on TV to pitch her Trump propaganda. And for the most part she has succeeded only in making Trump look even more guilty than prior to her commentaries. For example, she visited with Sean Duffy – a former congressman and reality TV star – who was filling in for Laura Ingraham on Fox News. They united to muddy the waters with regard to whether the documents that Trump took from the White House were classified…
Duffy: You were there at Mar-a-Lago when the FBI raided the place. Do you know what was in the boxes that they took?
Bobb: It was documents, that’s all I know … So, no, at this point we don’t necessarily know what was in the boxes. But I also think it’s important to point out, as you did earlier, that president Trump had declassified everything.

So Bobb doesn’t know what was in the boxes. That’s an interesting story considering that she told a completely different one the day before to Ingraham, when she asserted that Trump’s legal team had “done a very thorough search” of the documents he had at Mar-a-Lago.
Ingraham: Is it your understanding that there were not documents related to our nuclear capabilities or nuclear issues that had national security implications in the President’s possession when the agents showed up at Mar-a-Lago?
Bobb: That’s right. I don’t believe they were…I have not specifically spoken to the [former] President about what nuclear materials may or may not have been in there. I do not believe there were any in there. The legal team has done a very thorough search and has turned over – we’ve been very cooperative with the Biden administration and the DOJ – and turned over everything we’ve found that we had. So it’s my understanding, on very good belief based on a thorough investigation, that there was nothing there.

On another occasion, Bobb contradicted Trump who posted a furious complaint claiming that the FBI “wanted to be left alone, without any witnesses to see what they were doing, taking or, hopefully not, ‘planting.'” He asked “Why did they STRONGLY insist on having nobody watching them?” However, on the right-wing webcast, Real America’s Voice, Bobb refuted that saying that…
“[Former] president Trump and his family probably had a better view than I did because they had the CCTV (closed circuit TV) that they were able to watch. I was stuck in the parking lot to collect paper and answer questions. But they were actually able to see the whole thing.”

So Trump’s charge that the FBI prevented any witnesses from observing their plot to plant evidence was another Trump lie. According to his own lawyer, he was watching the search himself.
In the few short days since the FBI search was done, Trump’s excuses and defenses have varied wildly. Here is a brief summary of them for the record…
- Well, there were no documents.
- Okay, There were documents but they were just personal mementos and family photos.
- Okay, There were also documents that were official business that Trump took home to study.
- Okay, Trump was allowed to have all of the documents, and besides, what about Obama?
- Okay, Any classified documents were packed by someone else when Trump moved out of the White House and he didn’t know what was in them.
- Okay, the classified documents that were found were planted there by the FBI.
- Okay, none of the documents were classified because Trump secretly declassified them.
In short, the documents that don’t exist, and which Trump refused to return when subpoenaed, were actually there, but he was using them, even though someone else packed them without his knowledge, which didn’t happen because the FBI planted them, and the documents that the FBI planted were all declassified in a secret ceremony, and once declassified they still weren’t released to the public, and can’t be released now.
Got it? Good! Now back to lying about the 2020 presidential election being “rigged” and “stolen” from Trump.
