Joseph Hayden Quoted in InsiderNJ Editorial Regarding Potential Prosecution of Donald Trump
Joseph A. Hayden, Jr., Partner and co-chair of the Criminal Defense and Investigations practices at Pashman Stein Walder Hayden, was quoted in the InsiderNJ editorial, “For the Good of Our Republic, Garland – Prosecute.” The editorial by Max Pizarro discusses the January 6th hearings and opines that based on the evidence presented, Attorney General Merrick Garland should prosecute former President Donald Trump.
“The [House] committee heard an avalanche of evidence, such that you could see the intent of Trump was to disrupt the [certification] proceedings,” said InsiderNJ legal analyst Joe Hayden.
“This wasn’t a gut shot, it was a head shot,” Hayden added.
For the good of the country, in honor of the rule of law, and as a vital recommitment to who we are as Americans, Garland should and must prosecute this case. “I believe he has a case and he has a duty,” Hayden said. “This cannot be walked away from because we will lose all stature internationally. The testimony shows that out of a sense of self absorption and narcissism, Trump didn’t care about the embarrassment internationally, the safety of Mike Pence, or dead law enforcement.

Hayden said he believes based on the comments the Attorney General has issued to date that he will prosecute.
