Donald Trump’s lawyers are always in the spotlight.
But this time it’s different.
And Donald Trump’s lawyer left him blindsided by making one big announcement.
Donald Trump hired prominent conservative attorney Harmeet Dhillon’s firm to represent him in his dealings with the January 6 Committee.
But now Dhillon is willing to walk away from representing Trump in order to take on a new challenge.
On Tucker Carlson’s show, Dhillon – who is already the Chairwoman of the Republican Lawyers Association – announced her intention to challenge sitting Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel.
Dhillon explained that the GOP needed to overhaul its operations to compete with Democrats by developing early voting and ballot harvesting programs.
Dhillon also said Republicans needed to offer a positive, conservative message to voters instead of just attacking Democrats all the time.
“I think that we really need to radically reshape our leadership in order to win. And we can’t keep running elections like we did in the ’90s and the 2000s and we really have to modernize to compete with the Democrats dollar-for-dollar in the ways they fundraise, the way they deliver their ballots to the ballot boxes. Our messaging needs to be fresh and positive and not just reactive to news cycles and what the Democrats are doing,” Dhillon began.
Dhillon told Carlson that Republicans must embrace the reality of who the base GOP voter is and promote a more populist message.
She said the Party must move away from the Paul Ryan/George W. Bush version of open borders and endless wars that many in the establishment still support.
“And I think that the Party needs to realize that the Party has become a populist Party. The base of the Party demands populist messages that speak to them and not Chamber of Commerce messages, not neocon messages, not warmonger messages, and I’m afraid that the base of our Party is not getting what it needs from our leadership. And so, after three successive rounds of really disappointing results, Tucker, I’m a member of the RNC and no other member is stepping up to challenge leadership, and our current leadership has never been challenged for the Chair job and I think that challenge and competition are very good,” Dhillon added.
Since taking over as Republican National Committee Chair in 2017 thanks to Donald Trump’s endorsement, McDaniel oversaw losing election cycles in 2018, 2020, and 2022.
Many conservatives believe it is time for a change.
Now the 168 members of the Republican National Committee will have an option.
