    Liberal Lawyers Are Trashing DA Alvin Bragg’s Indictment Attempt

    Published on

    Alvin Bragg, the far-left Manhattan district attorney who has become embroiled in a political storm, may shortly face even more pressure.

    A Manhattan grand jury indicted Trump on 34 criminal counts of falsifying business documents related to adult film actress Stormy Daniels earlier this month. Trump allegedly sent Daniels a payment prior to the 2016 election in order to silence Daniels about their affair in 2006. Trump pled not guilty to the 34 counts against him.

    Several legal experts have argued since the indictment that Bragg’s case is exceedingly weak.

    Brad Smith, a former Federal Election Commission chairman, said “Bragg’s decision to prosecute is as common as clay. The criminal case against Donald Trump lacks a necessary element: there is no federal campaign finance violation.”

    Ian Millhiser, a senior correspondent at Vox, wrote: “There is something painfully anticlimactic about Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s indictment of former President Trump. It concerns not Trump’s efforts to overthrow the duly elected government of the United States, but his alleged effort to cover up a possible extramarital affair with a porn star. And there’s a very real risk that this indictment will end in an even bigger anticlimax. It is unclear that the felony statute that Trump is accused of violating actually applies to him.”

    Mark Stern, a journalist for the liberal publication Slate, penned an article titled “The Trump Indictment Is Not the Slam-Dunk Case Democrats Wanted.”

    Left-leaning Politico reported that even Bragg’s allies believed he bungled the indictment.

    Rand Paul, a Republican senator from Kentucky, criticized Bragg after Trump was indicted, stating that Bragg could be forced out of office and into court.

    “Wonder if DA Bragg remembers Durham DA Mike Nifong who withheld exculpatory DNA tests on the Duke lacrosse players. He was subsequently forced out of office, disbarred, and convicted of contempt of court,” Paul said, referring to Nifong, the district attorney in the 2006 case accusing Duke University lacrosse players of rape. The three players were exonerated and Nifong even spent one day in jail.

    “A Trump indictment would be a disgusting abuse of power. The DA should be put in jail,” Paul said in a separate statement just before news late last week about the indictment.

    After Trump appeared on Tuesday in Manhattan for his arraignment in the case brought against him by Bragg, House Speaker Kevin McCarthy announced that Congress will take action.

    John Bolton, who served as national security adviser during the Trump administration and has since come out against Donald Trump’s 2024 campaign, appeared on CNN and criticized the charges filed against his former boss, former President Trump, stating that the indictment was “even weaker than I feared it would be.”

    “Speaking as someone who very strongly does not want Donald Trump to get the Republican presidential nomination, I’m extraordinarily distressed by this document,” Bolton said on CNN. “I think this is even weaker than I feared it would be.” CONTINUE READING…
