  • Trump Closing: Bragg Fell Way Short, Offered Little Evidence of Scheme

    Washington Examiner ^ | Tuesday, May 28, 2024 | Tom Howell Jr.
    Former President Donald Trump’s lawyer told jurors Tuesday they “should want and expect more” from prosecutors who claim the presumptive GOP nominee engaged in business fraud to boost his first run for the White House. Defense attorney Todd Blanche, in his closing argument, said the state’s evidence showed little more than standard business practices. “President Trump is innocent. He did not commit any crimes, and the district attorney has not met their burden of proof, period,” Mr. Blanche said as Mr. Trump’s hush money trial neared its conclusion.
  • Why Alvin Bragg’s ‘Jackson Pollock’ prosecution is more likely to produce a hung jury

    Abstract artist Jackson Pollock once said that his paintings have no objective meaning, so the best way for people to enjoy them is to stop looking for it. For many of us, Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg has created a new school of abstract law where there is no need for objective meaning. The jury is simply supposed to enjoy it for what it is: a chance to convict Donald Trump. Pollock was famous for his painting drips on large canvases. Bragg has achieved the same effect by regenerating a dead misdemeanor on falsifying business records as 34 felony counts....
  • Corrupt Judge Merchan Sides with Bragg’s Prosecutors, Rules Jury DOES NOT Need to Unanimously Agree on “Predicate” Crimes in Trump ‘Hush Money’ Case

    Corrupt and biased Judge Juan Merchan has so far refused to release the jury instructions to the public after Bragg’s prosecutors and Trump’s attorneys sparred over the order during a conference earlier this week. Jury instructions can make or break a case for either side. No doubt Judge Merchan’s jury instructions “will be horrendously poisonous” Mark Levin said earlier this week. Judge Merchan however sided with Bragg’s prosecutors and ruled the jury does NOT need to unanimously agree on the “predicate” crime Trump committed. “In other words: If some jurors believe that Trump falsified business documents solely to cover up...

    As is evident to anyone with even half a brain, the Trump trial in New York City is a farce. What many may not know is how Donald Trump has been hunted since the day he declared himself a candidate for President a second time. We shall see the amazing coincidences that have followed since. Joe BidenEven before Trump announced his candidacy for a second term as President Joe Biden was all but ordering Merrick Garland to prosecute Trump. That set in motion a galaxy of actions with the single goal of imprisoning Biden's political opposition all in the name...

    democrats, in deep depression over seeing Alvin Bragg's ridiculous case against Trump get blown out of the water, have abandoned one windmill and turned their focus on a new one- Justices of the Supreme Court. Hakeem Jeffries "Samuel Alito should apologize immediately for disrespecting the American flag and sympathizing with right-wing violent insurrectionists. He must recuse himself from cases involving the 2020 election and former President Donald Trump." Jeffries cheered on protests at the homes of SCOTUS Justices.

    Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg laid out his 34-count indictment of President Trump with links to underlying documents in this press release dated April 4, 2023. The indictment relies on section 175.10 of New York’s criminal law (“Falsifying business records in the first degree”): “A person is guilty of falsifying business records in the first degree when he commits the crime of falsifying business records in the second degree, and when his intent to defraud includes an intent to commit another crime or to aid or conceal the commission thereof.”In his most recent update on the trial, Andrew McCarthy concisely...

    NY Post ^ | 05/16/2024 | Tim Rosenberger
    Headline-chasing Manhattan district attorney Alvin Bragg’s vanity project of a trial against former president Donald Trump comes at a high cost for New Yorkers. The time and expense Bragg has devoted to the flimsy-as-a-cobweb Trump charges are indefensible given how many dangerous crimes go unprosecuted. Criminals roam the streets with little fear of facing jail time. Manhattan’s crime clearance rate is an abysmal 29.8%. In 2023, NYC’s 109,303 prosecuted arrests resulted in an imprisonment rate of less than 7%. While Trump is going to trial and faces six to eight weeks of “embarrassing evidence,” most New York criminal cases summarily...

    Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg (D), the prosecutor linked to billionaire George Soros who is currently prosecuting former President Donald Trump on 34 felony counts, has offered plea deals to six of the nine migrants accused of attacking two New York Police Department (NYPD) officers in January. On January 27, a mob of Venezuelan migrants were caught on surveillance and police body cam footage attacking a pair of NYPD officers outside of a taxpayer-funded migrant shelter in midtown Manhattan. .....

    Six of the migrants charged in connection to the vicious attack on two NYPD officers in Times Square were offered plea deals Tuesday as a Manhattan judge revealed that one of the accused cop-beaters was arrested again while out on bail. Yohenry Brito, 24 — who was remanded after his initial arrest — was nabbed last week for petit larceny after an activist Brooklyn priest posted his $15,000 cash bail in February, Judge Laura Wood said in Manhattan Criminal Court on Tuesday. “I am furious that Mr. Brito was rearrested and charged with petty larceny while he was out on...

    Tell Me How This Ends ^ | 5/10/24 | CHRIS BRAY
    This book is an alarm. It’s a sign that danger is close, and that it’s serious. That’s not how the author meant it. Mark Pomerantz published People vs. Donald Trump last year to describe his role as a special assistant district attorney in Manhattan, trying to prosecute the former president, and to complain about an initial decision in the DA’s office not to file charges. I didn’t notice it until I saw Pomerantz taking the fifth over and over again in response to recent questions about his behavior during the investigation, but I bought a copy this week — a...

    If you have been following Conservative media recently on the subject of the Donald Trump/Stormy Daniels trial in New York City, you have probably heard numerous commentators express the opinion that, even though Alvin Bragg’s case against President Donald Trump is largely falling apart, the fact that he is being tried by a highly biased jury, he will be convicted nonetheless. I can only say that if you are a Democrat you should be crossing your fingers that this does not happen. Let me explain why…. It’s very clear that the initial Democrat strategy to take down Trump was to...

    Arrested for disorderly conduct Tuesday, disorder mastermind (for pay!) Manolo De Los Santos was walking free the next day. Hey, Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg: How about getting serious and creative in investing, charging and criminally prosecuting the career agitators encouraging chaos across the city? Yes, De Los Santo, the 35-year-old leftist zealot and co-executive director of The People’s Forum (an incubator for radical progressives), only got arrested for disorderly conduct at an anti-Israel encampment at the Fashion Institute of Technology. But in January, he was arrested at another protest (where he called for the state of Israel to be...

    rump's "hush money" trial is all about smearing Donald Trump One year ago, New York City district attorney, Alvin Bragg, was asked by a reporter, "What crime did Trump commit to be on trial?", and Bragg replied that he didn’t have to tell him what the crime was, because the law doesn’t require it. The legal theory behind the People v. Trump Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s "Theater of the Absurd" entered its third week, still without any evidence of crimes committed by the accused. When Bragg first brought charges against Donald Trump in March 2023, the legal theory behind...

    Albert Einstein allegedly said, “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” But without validation, he was just a super-smart guy making an educated guess about scientific repeatability and human mental stability. Fortunately, his postulation is moving from “theoretical” to “proven,” via testing provided by the Democrat party. The Dems came up with a surefire battle plan to prevent Donald Trump from returning to the Oval Office. Just prosecute him for something — it didn’t matter what. The Donald would become “damaged goods,” and voter outrage would prevent a return of mean tweets to...

    Former President Donald Trump is expected to spend much of the next two months in New York City while he attends his criminal trial, a development that has forced him to reimagine political campaigning to match his unprecedented circumstances.Since the trial began earlier this month, he has begun campaigning throughout New York City with the intensity of a competitive mayoral candidate, despite the Big Apple’s status as a Democratic bastion.Pinning him to his hometown is Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, who has charged Trump with 34 counts of falsifying business records in connection with a 2016 payment Trump’s then-attorney, Michael...
