12. The Manhattan DA charges are the weakest tea in the constellation of legal risk

In order to get a felony conviction (or maybe even a charge), Alvin Bragg will need to connect state misdemeanor business falsification charges to state election law violations. His star witness is a convicted felon (ironically imprisoned for the same crime). THIS matter is in the wrong court.

Trump SHOULD have been indicted for this crime by the DOJ at noon on January 20, 2021 as soon as his "presidential immunity" expired and his department fixers departed.

Bragg has other, more serious criminal charges to pursue following the same evidence in the Leticia James civil suit. He already has gained criminal convictions against The Trump Organization for those serious financial crimes.

In my opinion, Bragg does not have the political guts to follow the evidence to its logical target... Either that, or the Trump Crime Family is making Putin-esque threats.

...yes...but the sentencing will be tricky.. samnsara Mar 2023 #1
To me, the sentencing SHOULD be a no brainer. Another jury sent Trump's gofer, Cohen, to prison. The Karadeniz Mar 2023 #10

Hope so. But, I'm afraid we'll still be asking this question 20 years from now. Silent Type Mar 2023 #18
