Former President Donald Trump is set to make an appearance in a Washington, D.C. courtroom this Thursday following an indictment that accuses him of attempting to overturn the 2020 election. In light of this, Trump’s attorney, John Lauro, proposed the possibility of moving the trial to West Virginia.
During an interview on CBS This Morning, Lauro was asked if he would seek a change of venue for the case, which currently remains in Washington, D.C. The host questioned whether a fair trial could be guaranteed in a location that was politically opposite to the nation’s capital. Lauro responded by pointing out that West Virginia is more diverse than Washington, D.C., which he believes could make it a viable option for a fair trial.
