Jesse Watters Explains How Alvin Bragg Is Putting Trump’s Life in Danger

Published on

Alvin Bragg, district attorney of Manhattan, endangers the life of a presidential candidate? Yes, says Fox News personality Jesse Watters.

Watters stated on Tuesday’s broadcast of “The Five” that putting former President Donald Trump, who is seeking the office again in 2024, in a specific location on a certain day for his arraignment provided any number of nutjobs the opportunity to shoot him.

In the meanwhile, according to Watters, the amount of money necessary to provide adequate protection in New York City for a former president and current presidential contender is ludicrous — and all for allegations that are at best doubtful.

Tuesday in Manhattan Criminal Court, Trump pleaded not guilty to 34 charges of falsifying company records in the first degree.

In the state of New York, misdemeanors carry a two-year statute of limitations, so the charges — which relate to how nondisclosure agreement payments were made to three individuals, including porn star Stormy Daniels, during the 2016 campaign — would be well past the statute of limitations.

Bragg argues that the alleged infractions constitute felonies because the falsifications were intended to hide another crime: violations of federal election law. The problem is, of course, that Bragg lacks federal authority.

That’ll be for the courts to sort out. Watters emphasized that there is the “circus” to cope with in the interim.

“He’s spending how many millions of dollars on this circus?” the Fox News host said. “He’s shutting down the FDR Drive. He’s hiring how many police officers? How much manpower is going into the DA’s office on this case alone?

“Meanwhile, you’ve got a crime wave out here, and he has the nerve to come out and say he doesn’t want to normalize crime. C’mon, man!”

Watters was alluding to statements made by Bragg following the unsealing of the indictment.

“Under New York state law is a felony to falsify business records with intent to defraud and intent to conceal another crime. That is exactly what this case is about. 34 false statements made to cover up other crimes,” Bragg said, according to Fox News.

“These are felony crimes in New York State. No matter who you are, we cannot and will not normalize serious criminal conduct.”

Ironic, given that Bragg was the one who temporarily ceased prosecuting certain armed robberies as crimes until public outrage caused a reversal. But I digress.

The next scheduled visit of Trump is on December 4, which, according to Watters, poses a security risk.

“And I’ve got to tell you: You’re putting Donald Trump’s life in danger. You’re setting him up and advertising to the entire world, ‘The former president of the United States, the Republican nominee for the presidency, is gonna be at this location, at this time, on this date,’” he said.

The Fox News host misspoke: Trump isn’t the 2024 GOP nominee. However, he is the front-runner right now.

“And you’ve got towers, and you’ve got windows,” Watters continued. “You think that’s good for this country? To put a man like that in a certain location Dec. 4? And then, what if it goes to trial? He has to be there every day. You think the Secret Service wants that?

“That is dangerous. And he is playing a dangerous game.”
