Senator Lindsey Graham, a Republican from South Carolina, thinks he knows what the end result of Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg's campaign against Donald Trump is going to be:
Donald Trump winning the White House in 2024.
"This is a shocking and dangerous day for the rule of law in America. This is one of the most irresponsible decisions in American history by any prosecutor," Graham claimed. He added:
It is irresponsible because the case was looked at by two previous prosecutors and they passed. It has not aged like fine wine. The chief witness for prosecution is a convicted felon, Michael Cohen, whose previous lawyer said he is untrustworthy. Upon scrutiny, this case folds like a cheap suit. So how does this end? Trump wins in court and he wins at the ballot box.
Bragg must think he has an incredible case against Trump to risk giving the former president the support and momentum that comes from being unfairly prosecuted.
Unfortunately for Bragg, he's one of the only people that believe that right now.
But don't take my word for it, listen to people like Graham and Governor Henry McMaster.
I am afraid we have not seen this type of reckless behavior by a prosecutor since that disgraced North Carolina district attorney was disbarred for trying to prosecute the Duke lacrosse team.
