Disgraced former president Donald Trump loves to brag that he hires only “the best people,” but one of the attorneys currently representing him as he’s being investigated for refusing to turn over classified and top-secret documents was so incompetent while working at the White House that a former co-worker says she wasn’t even trusted to use a photocopier.
Miles Taylor served as chief of staff at the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) in the Trump administration, and made it clear Friday on MSNBC’s “Deadline: White House” that Bobb is incompetent:
“I’m not a lawyer, but I would tell you right now, it looks to me like Donald Trump is going into the major leagues with some minor league lawyers…That lawyer that you just featured was planted by the White House to work under me while I worked at the Department of Homeland Security, and I will say, we did not trust that individual in some cases with a photocopier, let alone handling a federal case like this. So, if I was Donald Trump, I’ve had that employee before, I wouldn’t feel very good going into court with that person as your defense at the moment. I don’t feel convinced by the arguments Christina Bobb made on television.”
Taylor added that one of his colleagues at DHS called Bobb an idiot:
“I’m not going to personally disparage people like that, but I would say, you know, Christina Bobb was assigned to work in execsec at DHS. That’s the office that prints papers and puts together briefings for the secretary. I kept her out of most meetings because I did not feel comfortable with her being in sensitive meetings with even the Secretary of Homeland Security, but apparently, now she’s advising the ex-president. I wish him well with that defense and with that employee, but look, I don’t have confidence in the information they’ve been putting out there publicly, and I think the ex-president is in extremely hot water and is getting extremely bad advice.”
Yep, only the very best people.
