Following the attack on the U.S. Capitol building, (headline) Donald Trump was impeached for incitement of insurrection. On “Cuomo Prime Time” Tuesday, attorney Clint Broden discussed his client Garrett Miller, who was charged with crimes related to the attack as well as death threats made towards Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Broden claims his client was manipulated by former president Trump.
“I have referred to him as a cult leader,” said Broden. “Donald Trump was a cult leader. You have somebody like Garrett Miller, who is not very politically involved, hadn’t even voted much earlier in life, loses his job and gets focused on the internet and you have, as I said, a cult leader telling him to do X, Y and Z to protect the country.”
Miller claimed he was just following Trump’s orders and apologized for threatening Ocasio-Cortez. (broll) And his attorney said their focus is on deprogramming Miller.
“That’s what cult leaders do,” said Broden. “They prey on vulnerable people. And not to excuse what Miller did, as you said, his comments are vile, disgusting, what have you. But without going into attorney client privilege I'm having some discussions with him and really we're trying to deprogram him.”
