Trump’s lawyer expects to make motion to dismiss charges

Joe Tacopina, one of former President Donald Trump’s lawyers, said Sunday that he eventually expects to move to dismiss the charges against the former president.

“I very much anticipate a motion to dismiss coming because there’s no law that fits this,” Tacopina told Dana Bash on CNN’s “State of the Union.”

Trump was indicted Thursday by a Manhattan grand jury in a case related to hush money his lawyer, Michael Cohen, paid to porn actress Stormy Daniels ahead of the 2016 presidential election. The exact charges against the former president have yet to be unveiled.

The move to dismiss the charges against Trump won’t come until after his arraignment Tuesday, Tacopina said.

“We’re not doing anything at the arraignment because that would be showmanship and nothing more because we haven’t even seen the indictment yet.”

“We will take the indictment. We will dissect it. The team will look at every — every — potential issue that we will be able to challenge and we will challenge,” he added.
