Trump’s new ‘volunteer’ lawyer Cleta Mitchell specializes in BS election

The revolving door for President Donald Trump’s legal advisers has turned faster than ever in recent weeks, as his attempts to overturn the 2020 election have grown more desperate. And in a recording released on Sunday, a now infamous conference call between Trump and Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger revealed that notorious Conservative lawyer Cleta Mitchell has apparently joined the fold as the president’s last free lawyer.

During the phone call, first posted by The Washington PostMitchell could be heard fighting for the anti-democratic interests of the Trump team.

“I think what the president is saying and what we’re trying to do is say, look, the court is not acting on our petition. They haven’t even nominated a judge, ”Mitchell told Raffensperger after a dazzling rant from Trump about the Secretary of State’s reluctance to change the election results. “But the Georgian people and the American people have a right to know the answers and you have data and records that we do not have access to. And you keep telling us and making public statements that you’ve investigated this and, you know, nothing to do here.

Until his name appeared in the Publish History, Mitchell had conducted his legal work for Trump and his team almost entirely out of the public eye, choosing instead to appear sporadically in pro-Trump media, most of the time without revealing his own role. In an unnoticed podcast appearance, she described herself as a ‘volunteer’ with Trump’s long, long campaign long fired a legal battle. While the extent of her current role in Trump’s cause wasn’t widely known until this week – not even from her own law firm, apparently – knowledgeable sources say she was underway before Thanksgiving .

Moreover, Mitchell had already replaced Trump in a 2011 affair, according to official documents and contemporary accounts.

She was not a large media presence officially representing the president’s post-election legal team, unlike Trump lawyers such as Rudy Giuliani, Jenna Ellis or Trump’s adviser Sidney Powell, and her name has been absent the last two months of legal paperwork or court records the Trump team filed during the president’s strenuous efforts to overturn Joe Biden’s decisive victory in the 2020 presidential election, according to a review of the Daily Beast files.

But Mitchell’s involvement with Trump, his senior executives and his legal team in baselessly contesting Biden’s victory dates back about two months, according to two sources familiar with his presence on the team, as well as text messages reviewed by The Daily Beast. Behind the scenes of legal work and paperwork, she became the go-to for the Trump team for trying to overturn the Georgia vote results, and has been in contact with Trump and the White House on several occasions. since November. She is viewed by other members of the legal team and by Trump’s staff as an ally of Mark Meadows, Trump’s White House chief of staff.

It’s unclear why Mitchell’s role has been kept largely silent for as long as it has been, although she would not be the only lawyer to have worked with Trump’s legal team who also kept the silence about it. In late November, the Daily Beast reported that Christina Bobb, on-air host of the Trump-endorsed One America News Network, had quietly done legal work for the president’s so-called “elite strike force.” , and had shown at the campaign headquarters. She did so without revealing it in her television coverage of the same legal efforts.
