Trump Co-Def Misty Hampton’s Attorney Confesses to Leaking Videos

At a hearing this afternoon before Judge Scott McAfee, an attorney for one of the co-defendants confessed to being the leaker of the proffer tapes to the press. The hearing was being held because of a motion for a protective order brought by the DA’s office after the tapes were leaked. Prosecutors sought a protective order so that no additional “sensitive materials” would be leaked by the parties. 

Towards the end of the hearing, shortly after the attorney for Harrison Floyd adamantly denied press reports that he was the leader, Misty Hampton’s lawyer Jonathan Miller confessed that it was him. He asserted that he had a first amendment right to disseminate the information to the public. The judge agreed that Georgia case law was thin on that point but did not agree that such a right necessarily took precedence over the ability of the prosecutors to protect their witnesses from threat and harassment.

The judge stated that he would be issuing a protective order by tomorrow. The most notorious video that was leaked was from Jenna Ellis, where she said that Trump aide Dan Scavino told her that he was going to refuse to relinquish power. Ellis has been the target of a great deal of scorn and ridicule from Trump supporters since the tape was leaked.
