Alvin Bragg Blinks: Manhattan Trump Grand Jury Set to Break for a Month

President Donald Trump got another big break and Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg got some bad news regarding the New York grand jury that will vote on Trump’s indictment.

After facing massive backlash from even allies on the left, Bragg seems to have gotten cold feet with his impending indictment.

At one point barricades were set up in New York in anticipation of a Trump arrest but then nothing.

Even CNN questioned Bragg’s antics with Van Jones telling him he was making a mistake. And now Bragg will have to wait at least another month before making his move because the grand jury is set to take a long break.

The grand jury isn’t meeting Wednesday and is expected to examine evidence in a different case Thursday sources told Politico.

The grand jury typically meets Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.

According to Politico:

The Manhattan grand jury examining Donald Trump’s alleged role in a hush money payment to a porn star isn’t expected to hear evidence in the case for the next month largely due to a previously scheduled hiatus, according to a person familiar with the proceedings.

The break would push any indictment of the former president to late April at the earliest, although it is possible that the grand jury’s schedule could change.

In recent weeks, the Manhattan district attorney’s office hasn’t convened the panel on certain days.

But it is District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s prerogative to ask the grand jury to reconvene if prosecutors want the panel to meet during previously planned breaks.
