Legal eagles on both sides of the aisle have parsed the 34-count indictment brought by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg against former President Donald Trump on Tuesday to find what laws have been broken.
These spurious charges — mostly on falsifying business records — are so thin on facts that this preverbal ham sandwich only had one piece of meat.
Bragg, who has released murders and rapists on reduced charges with no bail, suddenly is becoming a pro-business advocate.
“We cannot and will not normalize serious criminal conduct,” Bragg said of the charges.
Many law commentators point out that Bragg is on such shaky ground with bringing these charges, he left out specifying what gave him the authority to indict.
“The only crime that I’ve committed is to fearlessly defend our nation from those who seek to destroy it,” Trump said last night in reacting to the day’s events at Mar-a-Lago.
“The criminal is the district attorney because he illegally leaked massive amounts of grand jury information, for which he should be prosecuted — or at a minimum, he should resign,” Trump charged after details of the grand jury verdict were released earlier.
