The "politicization of the FBI and the DOJ" is more than "a MAGA concern," said Alina Habba. "That's an American concern that's based on our Constitution."

Former President Trump's lawyer Alina Habba deplored President Biden's "soul of the nation" speech as a "frightening" and "outright un-American" effort to sow political division. 

During the speech Thursday night, Biden labeled "MAGA Republicans" as a "threat to this country." 

The speech was "outright un-American," Habba said in an interview on the John Solomon Reports podcast.

"I am somebody who supports Donald Trump," she said. "I support the Republican Party. I also feel that there is wrongdoing on the politicization of the FBI and the DOJ, and that's an American concern. That's not a MAGA concern. That's an American concern that's based on our Constitution."

Habba decried Biden's use of the military as a political prop during his address. The president had two marines standing behind him while he spoke.

"I'll tell you what, that was the most frightening thing I've ever seen," Habba said. "With the red backdrop and the military — I don't understand. When did it become okay to target your opponent?"

Habba said Biden's speech undermined national unity.

"It doesn't matter if you're Democrat or Republican," she said. "We should have justice, we should have fairness, we should have law and order, and this divisiveness in our country has got to stop, or we're gonna lose our country."

"It's not for one side or the other," Habba concluded. "Last night was frightening."
