Trump rejected lawyers’ efforts to settle classified docs case: report

Former President Donald Trump stubbornly rejected his legal team’s efforts last year to settle the classified documents case — and prevent him from being indicted by a federal grand jury, according to a bombshell report.

Christopher Kise, one of Trump’s attorneys in the fall of 2022, wanted to quietly approach the Justice Department to negotiate a deal with Attorney General Merrick Garland, the Washington Post reported, citing seven insiders.

Kise told others he hoped his overture would “take the temperature down” by promising a professional approach and the return of all the materials from the former president’s Mar-a-Lago estate.

But Trump rebuffed Kise and listened instead to the advice of Tom Fitton, head of the conservative group Judicial Watch, who told him he should fight to keep the documents, according to the paper.

Kise never approached prosecutors to pursue his plan, three people briefed on the matter told the outlet.

It just goes to show that Joe Biden's interests and Donald Trump's interests are in alignment until the primaries are over.  Biden is betting the indictment will seal Trump's victory in the primary, as well as his own victory in the general election. Trump well knows the indictment will help him win the primary. I cannot imagine how Trump thinks he can win the general election given the substance of this latest indictment.

Basically, Biden is naming his primary opponent, and Trump is fully onboard with that.
