Former federal prosecutor Renato Mariotti summed up one of the biggest challenges for Donald Trump’s defense team as the former president faces the possibility of yet another indictment, this time in Georgia prosecutor Fani Willis’ investigation into his attempts to overturn the 2020 election in her state.

Mariotti, appearing on CNN, pointed out “how hard it is to defend a multi-front war in criminal defense.”

It’s the “one thing that people really underestimate” or miss,” he said.

“I have done it, myself personally,” said Mariotti. “It is very, very challenging to represent a client that is facing criminal indictment on multiple fronts.”

Why? Willis and her team “can focus like a laser on what they need to do to get a conviction,” explained Mariotti.

But Trump’s team “has to balance a bunch of different competing concerns.”

Decisions made in this case may impact the slew of other cases involving Trump, he said.

Willis reportedly is considering an indictment that would be “historic” because it would charge Trump “with this conduct while president,” Mariotti added. “It’s going to be a big challenge and it’s yet another thing for Trump’s team to deal with.”
