A source familiar with the matter suggested Bragg and his team "are having trouble convincing the jury to swallow the case."
The grand jury investigating former President Donald Trump for his alleged involvement in a $130,000 payment to adult film actress Stormy Daniels on the eve of the 2016 election was told not to show up on Wednesday. However; it has been reported that they are set to reconvene on Thursday.
The news comes amid reports that Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg is "having trouble" convincing members of the grand jury to hear the case.
According to the Daily Mail, "After hearing evidence on Monday, jurors were told they were not needed on Wednesday, according to two sources familiar with the matter. However, a court official told DailyMail.com that they will sit again at noon on Thursday, when prosecutors 'may present one more witness'."
A source familiar with the matter suggested Bragg and his team "are having trouble convincing the jury to swallow the case," calling it "a weak case [that] has caused divisions in the DA's office."
Others have argued that the decision to delay the meeting with the jury was made to give Bragg time to reconsider his strategy.
Since they last met, new evidence has been uncovered including a bombshell letter from former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen's office to officials at the Federal Election Commission stating that then-president Trump was not involved in the payment of alleged "hush money" to Stormy Daniels.
The letter, obtained by the Daily Mail, stated that it was Cohen who paid Daniels $130,000 out of his own pocket.
"Neither the Trump Organization nor the Trump campaign was a party to the transaction with Ms. Clifford," the letter read, "and neither reimbursed Mr. Cohen for the payment directly or indirectly."
Cohen's team went on to explain that, "neither Mr. Cohen nor Essential Consultants LLC made any in-kind contributions to Donald J. Trump for President, Inc., or any other presidential campaign committee," nor was Cohen a government employee at the time.
Thus, they argued, "the payment in question does not constitute a campaign contribution or expenditure and, therefore, the FEC lacks jurisdiction over this matter."
This is a breaking story and will be updated.
If a minority jury in 80% Democrat NYC can’t be convinced to indict the dangerous insurrectionist Donald J. Trump, you may have a weak case.
looks like the left *almost* got Trump again
Just give the jurors ham sandwiches for lunch.
They’ll know what to do.
In a sane Country this SCUMbag POS DA would be in prison

“A source familiar with the matter”
Well I’m convinced.
Unless thay are being sequestered, the Grand Jury is probably reading these media reports about what a flimsy case Bragg has..
Welcome to North Korea.
“are having trouble convincing the jury to swallow the case.”
who dreamed that one up? stormy?
So does mine..................🤔🤷♂️
So there are some thinking people who will stand up to Mugabe.
If you have trouble convincing a grand jury when it is stacked in your favor, it is time to drop the case.
He’s gottem in the Trump box AGAIN. they are scrambling now .
Conversation between Barack and Susan Rice:
Susan: “what do we do. we don’t have a case. everyone knows it. if we bail on it we look stupid. if we charge him he is going to participate in the perp walk and become not only a candidate but a martyr too. shit whose idea was this anyway. find that asshole and shit can........oh it was the DA’s idea.
Barack Oblahblah: “well who told him this was a good play? Pelosi? Hillary. we should have known. She’s dumb as a fence post. well get rid of him and while your at it get rid of her ass too”.
The word on the street is that since Bragg is named for a confederate general he will have to have a name change
Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump
WHY WON’T BRAGG DROP THIS CASE? EVERYBODY SAYS THERE IS NO CRIME HERE. I DID NOTHING WRONG! IT WAS ALL MADE UP BY A CONVICTED NUT JOB WITH ZERO CREDIBILITY, WHO HAS BEEN DISPUTED BY HIGHLY RESPECTED PROFESSIONALS AT EVERY TURN. BRAGG REFUSES TO STOP DESPITE OVERWHELMING EVIDENCE TO THE CONTRARY. HE IS A SOROS BACKED ANIMAL WHO JUST DOESN’T CARE ABOUT RIGHT OR WRONG NO MATTER HOW MANY PEOPLE ARE HURT. THIS IS NO LEGAL SYSTEM, THIS IS THE GESTAPO, THIS IS RUSSIA AND CHINA, BUT WORSE. DISGRACEFUL!

Trump has not lost his touch. Incommunicado no more. I’m sure the hope is that Trump IS indicted. That will keep this laughable witch hunt and Trump top of the fold everywhere. It won’t be long before Trump takes to Twitter to really squeeze all the benefits out of this comedy persecution. Trump has reaped tremendous gains already. RdS blew any change with the non Never Trumpers by taking the bait.
Cohen’s former lawyer nuked the grand jury! Signed documents and emails..... OH NO, not the truth exposed!
If they are being sequestered, it’s even worse for Bragg as they aren’t as dumb as he thinks they are and see the case is flimsy for themselves without any media reports.
