Alvin Bragg's indictment of Donald Trump lacks legal basis

 April 21, 2024

Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg indicted former President Donald Trump for alleged hush-money payments to adult film star Stormy Daniels and with the trial underway, it has become increasingly clear that there is no legal basis for the case.

Bragg has brought 34 counts against Trump for falsifying business transactions which at worst are a simple misdemeanor.

But Bragg knows a misdemeanor is irrelevant and time-barred and is trying to upgrade Trump's charges to a felony by claiming Trump was covering up a crime. More concerning, Bragg has yet to present real evidence that the alleged falsification even happened.

Furthermore, Bragg has no evidence that Trump was covering up a crime. The worst Bragg can argue is that Trump was trying to hide an affair which, if true, considering he had a wife and kids, is a moral issue, not a criminal one.

With the trial commencing, it has become apparent that Bragg is relying on a liberal judge and jury, not evidence, to land a conviction of Trump to damage his chances of winning the election.

In this day and age, the polarization in the political sphere has made it impossible to create a fair trial in such a liberal area. Americans shouldn't be surprised if Trump is eventually convicted considering the grossly corrupt circumstances surrounding this trial.
