The Associated Press is reporting that one of Donald Trump’s lawyers has told the FBI that he plans to seek a death sentence for the president.
According to the AP, Trump’s attorney, Jamie Gorelick, has told investigators that the president “believes that there is an overwhelming probability that the United States will face a catastrophic terrorist attack in the future and that he is prepared to act in such a manner to prevent it.”
Gorelick told investigators, “He believes that the only way to prevent such an attack is to execute him, and he believes that he would likely die before he could execute his plan.”
Golelick reportedly said he also told the investigators, “[W]e believe that we have enough time to act before the president is executed, but we need to do it as quickly as possible.”
Gorka was arrested last week on charges of obstruction of justice, conspiracy, and perjury.
