Anti-Trump ‘Hush Money’ Prosecutor Was Paid by DNC for ‘Political Consulting’

Bombshell new evidence has just emerged to reveal that one of the lead prosecutors on President Donald Trump’s “hush money” case in New York was paid by the Democratic National Committee (DNC) for “political consulting,” a financial paper trail has revealed.

Prosecutor Matthew Colangelo is working on the team for Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s get-Trump case.

Concerns were already raised that Colangelo has left a top position in Democrat President Joe Biden’s Department of Justice (DOJ) to help Bragg prosecute the “hush money” case.

Colangelo is one of the lead prosecutors on Democrat Bragg’s case, even delivering the opening statements in the unprecedented criminal trial of Trump.

Colangelo joined Bragg’s office in December 2022 after the resignations of Mark Pomerantz and Carey Dunne.

Pomerantz and Dunne were prosecutors who were investigating Trump.

However, they resigned in protest of Bragg’s initial unwillingness to indict the 45th president.

Colangelo left a senior role at the Biden Justice Department to join Bragg’s team.

Bragg afterward brought charges against Trump in April 2023, raising questions among some in the GOP about alleged politicization of the case.

House Republicans are investigating Colangelo and his past work as he prosecutes Trump.

According to Federal Election Commission (FEC) records, DNC Services Corp/Democratic National Committee paid Colangelo twice on Jan. 31, 2018.

Colangelo was given two payments of $6,000, for a total of $12,000.

The “description” for the purpose of payment is vaguely labeled “Political Consulting.”

At the time, Colangelo was serving in then-New York Attorney General Eric Scheiderman’s office as the deputy attorney general for social justice, assuming the role from Bragg.

At the time, Bragg was appointed as chief deputy attorney general.

Schneiderman resigned in May 2018 amid allegations of sexual assault.

Barbara Underwood replaced him as New York attorney general.

In June 2018, just months after Colangelo received the payments from the DNC, Underwood, with Colangelo as executive deputy attorney general, filed a lawsuit against the Trump Foundation.

The lawsuit claimed that Trump used the foundation’s charitable assets to pay off his legal obligations.

The Trump Foundation ultimately agreed to dissolve in December 2018.

Colangelo stayed in the New York Attorney General’s Office after Underwood’s tenure.

He continued to work on Trump lawsuits and investigations under the leadership of current Attorney General Letitia James, who took over in 2018.

However, on Jan. 20, 2021, the first day of the Biden administration, Colangelo began serving as acting associate attorney general in the Justice Department.

Colangelo then became the principal deputy associate attorney general at the Biden Justice Department.

Colangelo helped to oversee multiple departments, including the Civil, Civil Rights, Antitrust, and Tax Divisions.

Colangelo joined Manhattan DA Bragg’s office in December 2022.

Prior to his work in New York and in the Biden Justice Department, Colangelo worked in the Obama administration.

He served in a number of different roles under Obama.

Colangelo worked in the DOJ’s civil rights division and served as the chief of staff to then-Labor Secretary Tom Perez.

Perez later served as chair of the DNC in 2017.

At the time Colangelo was paid for “political consulting,” Perez was DNC chairman.

Colangelo also worked as a deputy assistant to then-President Obama and as the deputy director of the White House Economic Council.

The House Judiciary Committee, led by Chairman Jim Jordan (R-OH) is demanding that Attorney General Merrick Garland turn over records related to Colangelo’s employment at the DOJ.

Jordan said the Committee is conducting “oversight of politically motivated prosecutions by state and local officials.”

Bragg charged Trump with 34 counts of falsifying business records in the first degree.

Trump pleaded not guilty to all counts.

A charge of falsifying business records typically is a misdemeanor.

However, Bragg, Colangelo, and New York prosecutors must convince the jury that Trump allegedly falsified those records in the furtherance of “another crime.”

Prosecutors suggest that the other crime was in violation of New York State law — to prevent or promote election.

On its face, as a stand-alone offense, that charge is also typically a misdemeanor.

Coupling the alleged falsification of business records with the alleged prevention or promotion of election becomes a felony crime, according to Bragg.
