Christina Bobb: Age and bio of Trump’s attorney amid Mar-a-Lago fallout

Featured

Christina Bobb was at the Mar-a-Lago residence of Donald Trump during the FBI’s execution of a search warrant last week, generating interest in her professional bio and sparking curiosity about how she became Trump’s personal attorney.

On Tuesday (August 16, 2022), Bobb claimed to Newsmax the justice department and FBI had been “suddenly mum” on their reasons for searching Mar-a-Lago.

However, as Sky News notes, there are three separate ongoing investigations into Trump, “spanning electoral fraud, his financial affairs and the January 6 insurrection at the US Capitol,” all of which provide context, even if they don’t explicitly explain the raid.

Mr Trump himself has said he had been “working and cooperating with the relevant government agencies”.

Here’s what we know about the Trump attorney and former One America News anchor’s professional background, and life in general.

Who is Christina Bobb? Age and bio of former OAN anchor

Palm Beach, Florida USA – September 29, 2018: Mar-a-Lago, a members-only club and National Historic Landmark in Palm Beach, Florida is frequent residence of Donald Trump. Trump has referred to the resort as the Winter White House. Built in the 1920s by Marjorie Merriweather Post, it was acquired by Trump in 1985.

Christina celebrates her birthday on November 4, and was reportedly born in 1985, meaning her age at time of writing is 36.

According to her archived bio on the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) website, Christina Bobb went to Arizona State University. That’s where she earned her bachelor of arts degree.

She then completed an MBA at San Diego State University, earned her juris doctor from California Western School of Law, and a Master of Laws (LLM) degree in security law from Georgetown University Law Center. 

Bobb served in the US marine corps as a judge advocate before joining the DHS, during which time she was an operational law attorney in Helmand Province, Afghanistan.

She used to be an anchor on the One America News network

Bobb left the cable news network, described by The Daily Beast as “far-right,” in March this year. She had joined it in June 2020, meaning her stint with the network lasted just under two years.

She was the network’s White House correspondent and became a news anchor for its Weekly Briefing show.

Despite her departure from One America News, Christina Bobb has become a regular feature in news headlines in recent days and weeks. Most notably for being present at Mar-a-Lago during the FBI’s execution of a search warrant last week.

What is her relationship to Trump?

Christina Bobb arrived at Donald Trump’s Florida residence at around 10:30am on the day of the FBI raid. She found “about 24 FBI agents ‘rummaging’ through the former president’s belongings,” The Hill reports

She was the senior legal representative for the former president during the search warrant execution. But the FBI reportedly ordered her to stay near her car while its agents searched the house.

“I’m a little bit befuddled as to why they would do such a drastic thing,” the outlet quotes her as saying. “So disrespecting and so dishonoring, other than the fact it’s a political tool.”

Christina Bobb joined OAN in June 2020, age 34, and left less than two years later. She started volunteering to help Trump’s legal team while working for OAN, according to The Washington Post. The Hill calls her “passionate supporter” of Trump’s claims regarding the 2020 election.

She now works for Save America

Christina Bobb’s Instagram bio identifies her as an attorney at Save America, a leadership PAC created by Trump on November 9, 2020, following the 2020 presidential election. 

It raised $31.5 million in the final two months of 2020, and spent $343,000.

On Tuesday, Bobb spoke to Newsmax about the raid. She alleged she was “still waiting for an explanation” from the FB.

Christina’s sister is Carrie Bobb. She’s the chief executive of the Carrie Bobb Foundation, which advocates to prevent workplace assault in the US.
