    Alvin Bragg Hit With Two Lawsuits Over Trump Indictment: ‘He’s A Hypocrite’

    Published on

    As a result of his March decision to indict former President Donald Trump, Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg now faces his own legal issues. Bragg is facing two lawsuits related to his filing of charges against Trump, accusing him of illegalities involving a payment of hush money to adult film actress Stormy Daniels prior to the 2016 presidential election, which was facilitated by his then-personal attorney Michael Cohen.

    The 34 counts against Trump include allegations of falsifying business records to conceal the payment.

    Fox News notes: “The Heritage Foundation, a Washington, D.C.-based conservative think tank, has sued Bragg under suspicions that he and his office coordinated or communicated with the Justice Department, the White House, and Rep. Daniel Goldman, D-N.Y., about the prosecution. In its lawsuit, Heritage claims that such actions eventually led to investigations by several U.S. House committees into Bragg’s conduct.”

    “Regrettably, these questions have not been met with answers. These reports have raised concerns in many circles based in large part upon the longstanding history of President Trump’s political opponents coordinating their activities to systematically weaponize the criminal justice system against him and thereby pervert the course of Justice,” says a filing for the first lawsuit.

    Heritage has filed a distinct lawsuit alleging that Bragg and his team utilized the pro bono services of renowned law firms that specialize in white-collar litigation. Heritage seeks a declaration in the lawsuit that the requested documents fell within the scope of the New York Freedom of Information Law and should be released. The organization is also requesting that Bragg and his team provide the requested documents and refrain from pursuing costs and fees associated with the case-specific request.

    Mike Howell, director of Heritage’s Oversight Project, the organization’s government investigation division, stated that the group believes Bragg was “coordinating, or otherwise communicating” with Trump’s political opponents and that “there’s reason to believe Bragg was a prolific communicator” via cellphone.

    “The fact we have to file a lawsuit against Bragg who says he can’t produce these records and says he doesn’t have the systems to do so, is proof-positive of another dual standard of justice at play in this country,” Howell told Fox News Digital.

    “You have a weaponized actor who’s going after the former president on a loony theory about his document retention, whereas the DA can’t even keep his own documents, and it’s in violation of the information laws he is bound by,” he added.

    “He’s a hypocrite. He’s wasting an exorbitant amount of New York’s taxpayer’s dollars to defend this now and delay it and obstruct it when he could’ve just turned it over,” he noted further.
