ABBY PHILLIP: A huge legal blow for former President Trump with a third co-defendant pleading guilty in the Georgia election interference case. And this time, it is the person who is at the heart of the fake electors plot. I want to bring in now Kenneth Chesebro’s Attorney, Scott Grubman.
Look, today your client has now implicated Trump in this criminal conspiracy. If he is called upon to testify in this Georgia case, is he willing to implicate Trump on a witness stand, which seems to be required in this plea deal that he just struck?
SCOTT GRUBMAN: So, Abby, first of all, thank you so much for having me. Second of all, I am going to respectfully disagree with you on one thing. I don’t think he implicated anyone but himself.
And I just want to point out two important facts that I think will get exactly to your question. Not only did he avoid jail time, but this is the most important.
He did not plead guilty to the RICO charge. Mr. Chesbro pled guilty and I printed it out to make sure I had the exact words. conspiracy to commit filing of false documents. The RICO charge was dismissed.
And listen, Mr. Chesebro accepted the responsibility for count 15 of the indictment. And he agreed that if he were called by the state, he would come testify truthfully. And he is a man of his word and he will do that. Whether his testimony is going to be helpful to the state, that’s going to be for the state to decide.
