Bragg Bit Off More Than He Can Chew? Even Liberals Think So

In Brief:

Following the long-awaited and still somewhat shocking indictment of Donald Trump, the liberal left waited with bated breath, barely able to contain their excitement at what must be horrible charges…only to be shocked and disappointed at the lackluster list. 

The Background: 

The left, including left-leaning RINOs, are scratching their heads. Instead of the long-promised dirty laundry list against President Trump, they got a list of charges that was copy and pasted 33 times over. And now, the fear of the left is that this will further boost Trump’s martyrdom status and further thrust him toward the White House once again.

Sen. Mitt Romney, who twice voted to convict Trump during impeachment trials, has stated his disdain for D.A Bragg and the charges, stating:

“I believe President Trump’s character and conduct make him unfit for office. Even so, I believe the New York prosecutor has stretched to reach felony criminal charges in order to fit a political agenda. The prosecutor’s overreach sets a dangerous precedent for criminalizing political opponents and damages the public’s faith in our justice system.”

Another vocal critic of Trump, Rep Nancy Mace (R-SC), stated:

“You’ve got to work hard to make President Trump a martyr. Congratulations to Manhattan DA, Alvin Bragg, who has managed to do just that.”

It would seem Bragg has all but forgotten that innocent until proven guilty is the law of the land in America. And he is attempting to slap Trump with a felony under the excuse he claims Trump broke the law with the intent to conceal a different crime….

Politico wrote:

Legal experts who had awaited Bragg’s charging documents to resolve some of the lingering mysteries about the case remained confounded by some aspects of the prosecution.

“It is said that if you go after the king, you should not miss,” wrote Richard Hasen, a campaign finance law expert at UCLA. “In this vein, it is very easy to see this case tossed for legal insufficiency or tied up in the courts well past the 2024 election before it might ever go to trial. It will be a circus that will embolden Trump, especially if he walks.”

"There ain’t nothing there. To be honest, a first-year law student could cut and paste and produce this indictment." — Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX)
