Major Update From Manhattan Grand Jury After Reconvening For One Day

Published on

It was ill-advised for Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg to pursue charges against former President Donald Trump in a case that had gone nowhere for years.

Yet upon becoming office, Bragg made it his mission to revive the case involving Trump’s $130,000 payment to actor Stephanie Clifford, now known as Story Daniels, through his attorney prior to the 2016 presidential election.

Daniels said Trump had an affair with her a decade ago, which Trump has frequently denied. New York Post stated that Bragg intends to pursue an indictment against Trump in part for allegedly manipulating corporate records by writing off the cash as legal costs.

Bragg has created a novel approach to the previously closed case.

According to the New York Times, Bragg is investigating an unique legal argument that would raise this crime from a misdemeanor to a felony on the basis that it was allegedly committed in pursuit of breaching federal campaign finance regulations.

Bragg’s effort to smear Trump has reached the point where a Manhattan grand jury has assembled to evaluate evidence.

Daily Mail said that the grand jury gathered on Monday and heard evidence from David Pecker, a longtime Trump friend and the former CEO of the parent company of The National Enquirer. It was the first time in a week that the panel assembled for the Trump case.

Joe Tacopina, Trump’s attorney, expects the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office is rethinking criminal charges after learning of the delay.

“Everyone, from the left to the right, in the middle, is saying this case should not be brought. It should not because there is absolutely no crime. The law makes that clear.”

“And you do not indict a president for the first time in this country’s history on a case that will never make it to the finish line,’ Tacopina tells the Dailymail.com exclusively.

“I am hopeful that the DA’s office is cognizant of that and that they will not simply seek to charge President Trump because DA Bragg’s financiers are baying for his scalp. It would be the greatest form of injustice and would destroy the rule of law.”

Trump has often criticized Bragg amid Bragg’s efforts to pursue charges against the former president.

“The Manhattan DA witch Hunt against me is DEAD, no evidence at all, & it has been conclusively proven that I did nothing wrong!

The evidence against their ‘Star’ witness, however, is overwhelming. An already disbarred lawyer and convicted felon, the only question left is will the DA’s office sue him for lying and fraud. They should! The SDNY already found him guilty on charges unrelated to ‘TRUMP’ & wrote a scathing report. He is responsible for time taken away from the DA on VIOLENT CRIME!” CONTINUE READING…
