“My home was attacked. I’d rather not go into that,” he explained. “To answer your question, my entire family, my business, my law firm are under siege right now. I don’t really want to go into that, though. What I’d really like to do is talk about the merits of the case.”
According to the Philadelphia Inquirier, van der Veen’s home was spray-painted with the word “traitor” on the driveway. Windows were also smashed.’

The attacks on Trump’s lawyer have been unending and will likely continue as the country remains divided after Biden’s inauguration and Trump’s impeachment. Michael van der Veen is just one of many to be targeted after the election.
