Trump Puts Alvin Bragg on Notice, Raises More Than $4 Million in 24 Hours after Indictment

President Donald Trump has put Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg on notice by raising more than $4 million in the 24 hours after news of his indictment became public.

The Trump campaign said that more than 25% of the donations came from first-time donors to the 45th president.

The donations are “further solidifying President Trump’s status as the clear frontrunner in the Republican primary,” the campaign said.

“Americans from across all 50 states donated to President Trump’s campaign within the first 5 hours of the sham indictment.”

Alina Habba, one of Trump’s lawyers said: “He’s doing well.

“He’s resilient and strong and, of course, not happy with the news of the indictment.

“But ready to fight, I would say.

“We’re seeing selective prosecution.

“We’re seeing a person who’s been persecuted endlessly.”

“There won’t be a conviction, so I don’t even need to address it.

“President Trump will absolutely continue his campaign for presidency.”

George Washington University law professor Jonathan Turley warned Bragg that the judges will not like his flimsy case.

“This indictment, if it is reportedly following the theory that we’ve been talking about, is political,” Turley said.

“It’s a raw political prosecution.

“The indictment may come out with a crime that none of us have heard of.

“But for many months, this bootstrapping theory has been put out there, this idea that you could take a misdemeanor under New York law that has expired, that has a two-year statute of limitations, and revive it by connecting it to a federal crime, in this case, the federal election violation

“Now, there’s a host of problems with that.

“First of all, it’s a federal crime the Department of Justice chose not to prosecute.

“Bragg’s own predecessor declined to prosecute it, but he is attempting to bootstrap that federal crime into a state case.

“And if that is the basis for the indictment, I think it’s rather outrageous.

“I think it’s legally pathetic.

“If he’s using the bootstrap theory, which is the only one that’s been discussed publicly, that is unprecedented.

“And I expect that New York judges will have the same reaction of many of us, including people on the left, that this doesn’t read right.

“Under Bragg’s theory, he could take any unproven federal crime and revive a long-dead misdemeanor and turn it into a felony.

“That’s going to really, you know, raise concerns for a number of judges.

“But once it gets to the appellate level, he’s going to have a particularly difficult time, in my view,” he said.
