After Donald Trump was indicted last week on 37 federal counts following Special Counsel Jack Smith’s investigation into alleged improper handling of classified documents, the former president found himself getting advice from a very unlikely person in the form of O.J. Simpson.

Simpson’s Advice For Trump

Trump revealed his indictment to the world last Thursday night.

“The corrupt Biden Administration has informed my attorneys that I have been indicted, seemingly over the Boxes Hoax,” Trump said at the time, according to The Miami Herald.

Simpson responded to this by posting a video to Twitter in which he offered Trump some legal advice.

“Scrolling TV today and some things jumped right out. One is Donald waving what are supposedly secret documents and even admitting that they weren’t declassified,” Simpson said. “I don’t know if it was bluster or not. All I know is that cannot help you.”

“I’m gonna share some advice that I got from the greatest legal minds of our generation, of my lifetime,” he continued. “The one thing they stressed to me: Do not talk about the case publicly. Do not do interviews about the case. I don’t know if Donald’s lawyers are stressing this to him. If they’re not, they should be fired, and he should sue ‘em.”

Simpson’s History – Thoughts On Trump

Of course, Simpson knows a thing or two about legal trouble. In what was described as the trial of the century, Simpson was controversially found not guilty of the murders of the 1994 murders of his wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ronald Goldman. Despite this, many believe to this day that Simpson committed the brutal murders.

Simpson later served nine years of a 33 year prison sentence after he was convicted of armed robbery in Las Vegas, Nevada back in 2007. He was released from prison in 2017, and he became “a completely free man” at the end of 2021 when he was released from parole for good behavior, according to NPR.

Though he was in prison during the 2016 presidential election, Simpson has previously indicated that he likely would not have voted for Trump.

“Somebody asked me if I’d have voted for him,” Simpson told CNN in 2018. “Probably not, but I only know two of my friends I’d vote to be president. Some of my best, best besties I would not vote to be president.”

That being said, Simpson was not completely against the former president.

“The one thing I can say about The Donald is The Donald is fun,” Simpson added. “Well, for a dude — and I consider myself a dude — Donald is a man’s man.”

Trump Discusses Simpson

As for Trump, he’s claimed in the past that he was friends with Simpson, but distanced himself from the former NFL star after he “realized he killed his wife,” according to CNN Business.

“I hadn’t spoken to him in years, I don’t like people that kill their wives,” Trump said in a 2008 interview with Howard Stern. “Does that make sense? Does that make me a disloyal person?”

Many feel that the indictment against Trump is the result of an unfair witch hunt against the former president. It remains to be seen whether or not Trump will heed the advice given to him by Simpson.
