(NationalUSNews.com) — Trump loyalists Steve Bannon, Mike Lindell, and Rudy Giuliani have been facing legal troubles for years over various issues related to the 2020 elections. These legal troubles have cost all three men much in terms of money and reputation, and now it looks like they will all be looking for new representation in the courts.
Rudy Giuliani is being sued by his former lawyers, who claim that he owes them $1.36 million in unpaid legal fees. His case in Georgia, which includes 13 charges, including violations of Georgia’s anti-racketeering law, is still ongoing. The Fulton County District Attorney, Fani Willis, has expressed a desire to try all 19 defendants in that case together, but many of the defendants have filed motions to be tried alone or with a smaller group. Three lawyers Giuliani worked with pleaded guilty and are now cooperating with DA Willis.
Attorneys from Minnesota law firm Parker Daniels Kibort have filed to withdraw from representing Mike Lindell in the defamation suits against him by voting machine corporations Smartmatic and Dominion Voting Systems. They claim that Lindell owes them millions in unpaid legal fees. Bannon is appealing a criminal conviction obstructing Congress and facing trial in New York over state fraud, conspiracy, and money-laundering charges he is facing over allegations that he conned donors in a project to build a wall protecting the border between Mexico and the USA.
With previous lawyers abandoning and even turning on the three Trump allies, their various cases and lawsuits are in questionable territory. Their situations are complicated and will require legal representation to untangle, if that is even possible. However, with track records of nonpayment and public opinion against them, it may prove difficult for any of them to secure new representation. The American justice system is based on the idea that people are innocent until proven guilty, but the common saying that people who represent themselves in court are “a fool for a client” has frequently been proven true.
