From President Donald J. Trump:

Fox News host Mark Levin tore into special counsel Jack Smith for going after former President Trump’s right to attorney-client privilege.

Justice Department prosecutors on Tuesday asked a federal judge to compel one of Trump’s lawyers, M. Evan Corcoran, to answer more questions before a grand jury regarding the former president’s handling of classified documents. Prosecutors cited the crime-fraud exception as a way to circumvent the attorney-client privilege.

This exception, Levin said, is used if prosecutors believe a client is seeking advice from an attorney to assist with the furtherance of a crime or fraud.

“Then the communication is said not to be privileged. So the prosecution goes to a judge and says, ‘look, I’ve got evidence here that basically this is a ruse, that, in fact, the client is using the attorney to perpetrate an ongoing crime and fraud,'” he explained on “Life Liberty & Levin.”
