Alvin Bragg Claims He "Followed the Facts" in Case against Trump

Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg said he “followed” the facts in his case against former president Donald Trump.

“The 12 everyday jurors vowed to make a decision based on the evidence and the law, and the evidence and the law alone,” Bragg told reporters.

“Their deliberations led them to a unanimous conclusion, beyond a reasonable doubt, that the defendant, Donald J. Trump, is guilty of 34 counts of falsifying business records in the first degree to conceal a scheme to corrupt the 2016 election,” he said.

As Trending Politics News noted:

In order to charge Trump with a felony for what would generally be a misdemeanor bookkeeping violation, Bragg claimed that Trump conspired to falsify business records for payments to adult film star Stormy Daniels in an effort to conceal another crime. The D.A.’s office never identified the supposed underlying crime, while Judge Juan Merchan told jurors that they did not have to agree on what the never identified crime even was.

Bragg also used COVID-era policies to extend the statute of limitations, which had long since expired, in order to bring the case.

He also opted to indict the former president after both the Department of Justice and the FEC conducted their own respective probes and declined to bring charges.

Despite the numerous irregularities surrounding the case, it took a jury in deep blue Manhattan less than nine hours to find a former president guilty on 34 felony counts, each carrying a maximum prison sentence of four years.

“And while this defendant may be unlike any other in American history, we arrived at this trial, and ultimately today at this verdict, in the same manner as every other case that comes through the courtroom doors by following the facts and the law and doing so without fear or favor,” Bragg told reporters on Wednesday.

Despite the Soros-funded D.A.’s claims of impartiality, he made his case against Trump a centerpiece of his campaign in 2021.

“Let’s talk about what’s waiting for the new D.A. The docket — we know there’s a Trump investigation. I have investigated Trump and his children… I also sued the Trump Administration more than 100 times,” Bragg said on the campaign trail.

Trump became the first U.S. president to be convicted of a crime on Thursday when a New York jury found him guilty of falsifying documents related to payments to porn star Stormy Daniels.

The jury pronounced Trump guilty on all 34 felony counts he faced.

Justice Juan Merchan set sentencing for July 11, days before the Republican Party is scheduled to formally nominate Trump for president ahead of the Nov. 5 election.

Falsifying business documents can result in a maximum sentence of four years in prison, fines, or probation.
