Joe Hayden, partner at Pashman Stein Walder Hayden, was quoted in Insider NJ column by Fred Snowflack “Into the Trump Slime Zone with Legal Analyst Joe Hayden.”
“What Donald Trump has done since Election Day, in shamelessly trying to interfere with the vote counting process and the judgment and decision-making of election officials in the swing states, filing over 50 frivolous lawsuits, challenging the integrity of the election process and embarking upon an unprecedented publicity campaign to sow the seeds of disinformation about who won the election and the validity of the election process, simply cannot be ignored. However important it is for our country to heal, it is equally important that the rule of law and the viability of the democratic process not be abandoned.”
“President Trump is knocking on the door of soliciting some form of election fraud by that conversation,” Hayden said.
Hayden said some prosecutors might pause upon realizing the phone conversation was about an hour long.
He said their possible concern would be the “amorphous nature of this meandering conversation.”
Hayden said that can be interpreted as a “pattern” of Trump trying to influence the election after the fact.
In all, Hayden said that the call reinforces the fact that the president is getting more desperate by the day.
