Former President Donald Trump holds an umbrella as he arrives at Reagan National Airport following an arraignment in a Washington, D.C. court on August 3, 2023 in Arlington, Virginia.
Trump's lawyer has been accused of confirming allegations the former president faces under the 2020 election federal investigation into him.
In response to the claims, Lauro told Newsweek: "Unfortunately, some of the legal commentary is not focused on the actual facts of the case.
Sadly, that leads to a lot of public misinformation, which is to be expected in this highly charged political environment.
"What President Trump said is, 'Let's go with option D,'" Lauro said on Fox News' The Ingraham Angle.
Tristan Snell, a lawyer and former assistant attorney general for New York state, added: "Did one of Trump's lawyers just ADMIT, on live TV, that Trump pushed Pence to delay the certification?!?.
"What I hear when you play that clip of John Lauro saying 'oh, Trump just said let's go with option D.' Donald Trump said let's go with criminal option D," Kirschner said. »
