CNN ‘Unimpressed’ with DA Bragg’s ‘Underwhelming’ Case Against Trump: ‘There’s Not More to It’

A CNN panel was disappointed to learn how “underwhelming” Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s politically motivated case against President Donald Trump is.

On CNN anchor Jake Tapper’s show “The Lead,” the panel discussed how dissatisfied they were at the lack of substance in the 34-count indictment against Trump after it was released by the DA’s office on Tuesday.

Tapper asked former counsel to the U.S. Assistant Attorney General Carrie Cordero if the charges were what she expected and if she was “unimpressed.”

“It is what I thought it was gonna be in terms of focusing on the payments that were made, the falsification of the records really tied to the payment that was made to Stormy Daniels,” Cordero said.

“In terms of a case that’s being brought against a former president — it’s a little underwhelming,” she admitted.

“There’s not more to it,” she went on.

“There’s not more violations, tax violations, there’s not an incredible new set of facts that we didn’t know about publicly.

“It’s really- the facts of this case as they have existed for basically almost seven years.”


Trump’s former National Security Adviser John Bolton also joined CNN to explain that he was “extraordinarily distressed” by the substance of the indictment.

It’s “even weaker than I feared it would be and I think it’s easily subject to being dismissed or a quick acquittal for Trump,” he said.

These reactions from CNN come in stark contrast to the network’s initially celebratory atmosphere as Trump entered the courthouse while the indictment was still sealed.

Trump pleaded not guilty to 34 counts of falsifying business records, which carries a maximum sentence of 136 years in prison.
