Despite the leftist media telling you Donald Trump was humbled by his Manhattan Courtroom appearance, Fox News pointed out former president remained unbowed and let Soros-funded DA Bragg know it was “war.”
Fox News producer for federal law enforcement coverage, Jake Gibson, said, “Trump definitely glared at the DA Bragg when he left” the courtroom.
“He seemed to get up, look around the room — because, you know, he walked in — Trump was the last to walk in the hearing,” Gibson said.
The comment is at roughly the 7:30 mark in interview below:
“And this was pretty intense,” Gibson said.
“I mean, it’s not a huge room, but there’s probably 50 reporters in there. There were 15, 20, 25 law enforcement officials that were on the end of each row, so we couldn’t really see that well … It was very intense in there,” he added.
Trump reportedly sought Bragg out to stare him down.
Gibson also revaled that “very interestingly, the prosecution wants this to go to trial in January of 2024.”
“And you know what else is in January of 2024,” he said at the two-minute mark in the interview. “It’s primary season for the presidential election.”
Gibson added the judge wanted the trial to happen “expeditiously” despite the Trump team wishing to “push it further out.”
However, this detail got the most attention:
Not only did Trump refuse to duck out of the hearing quickly, but he also made sure Bragg knew it was on.
Unfortnuley for the left, they did not get the “embarrassed” Trump they were hoping for, instead, they learned the case was dubious at best, and the former President stood like a lion in the face of deep state lies.
“Earlier this afternoon, Donald Trump was arraigned on a New York Supreme Court indictment returned by a Manhattan grand jury on 34 felony counts of falsifying business records in the first degree,” Bragg said after the arraignment, according to Fox News.
“Under New York state law, [it] is a felony to falsify business records with intent to defraud and intent to conceal another crime. That is exactly what this case is about. Thirty-four false statements made to cover up other crimes,” Bragg continued. “These are felony crimes in New York state. No matter who you are, we cannot and will not normalize serious criminal conduct.”
The case relies on alleged payments made to an adult film star Stormy Daniels, despite all the liberal apprehension of the “wait until its unsealed” saga.
In New York State, falsifying financial records is merely a misdemeanor with a two-year statute of limitations.
However, for it to become a felony, it has to be concealing another crime, in this case felony campaign finance violations, National Review contributor Andrew C. McCarthy noted.
“That is, there would have to be some other crime, Trump would have to have known that, and he would have to have acted with the intent to conceal that crime,” McCarthy wrote in a March 31 piece.
“It would be hard to quantify how outrageous that allegation would be. Campaign-finance violations are federal. When the New York penal law refers to concealing ‘another crime,’ it is plainly talking about another New York state crime,” he continued. [Italics in original]
“The Manhattan district attorney has no jurisdiction to enforce federal campaign-finance statutes. Moreover, the Department of Justice and the Federal Election Commission — the federal agencies that do have jurisdiction in this area — looked at the Stormy Daniels hush-money arrangement and opted not to proceed against Trump.”
