Trump rejected lawyers’ suggestions to avoid indictment, listened to Judicial Watch instead: report

From Just the News:

Former President Donald Trump reportedly rejected suggestions from his attorneys to arrange a settlement with the Justice Department to avoid federal charges and instead, he listened to the advice of Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton, a conservative legal activist, and others who said he could legally keep the classified documents and should fight government prosecutors.  

Trump attorney Christopher Kise wanted to see last fall if he could quietly approach the Justice Department to negotiate a settlement with the hopes that Attorney General Merrick Garland and the agency would want to avoid bringing charges against the former president, The Washington Post reported Wednesday, citing multiple people familiar with the matter. 

Trump was not interested in settling with the Justice Department after listening to other attorneys who advocated for a more aggressive approach, so Kise did not approach prosecutors with his proposal. 

Trump had returned 15 boxes of classified documents early last year, leaving at least 64 more at his home. Fitton and others had told Trump he could legally retain the documents and he should fight the federal government.
