George Soros-funded Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg has directed a new allegation against President Donald Trump.
Bragg is now accusing Trump of attempting to use his 2024 presidential campaign to avoid the consequences of his alleged crimes.
According to Politico, Bragg made this claim in a new court filing.
This new court filing is Bragg’s response to Trump’s motion to dismiss the politically motivated case that the Democrat New York prosecutor has brought against him.
Bragg has accused Trump of having committed crimes when he – through his former attorney Michael Cohen – allegedly made so-called hush money payments to adult film actress Stormy Daniels.
Specifically, Bragg alleges that Trump falsified business records by not listing the payments to Daniels as “hush money.”
Legal experts, such as Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz, have stated that Bragg’s case, from a legal perspective, is extremely weak and, for this reason, should never have been brought.
Dershowitz, on multiple occasions, has highlighted the absurdity of Bragg’s argument.
Nonetheless, the case continues.
Trump has pled not guilty to the crimes that Bragg has accused him of.
In October, Trump and his legal team filed a motion in which they asked the judge overseeing the case to dismiss the charges.
In this motion, Trump’s legal team, in part, wrote:
After a five-year meandering, halting, and roving investigation that entailed inexplicable and unconstitutional delay, the District Attorney’s Office filed a discombobulated package of politically motivated charges marred by legal defects, procedural failures, discovery violations, and a stubborn refusal to provide meaningful particulars regarding its theory of the case.
On Wednesday, November 15, 2023, Bragg responded to this motion with a 99-page document.
It is in his response to Trump’s motion that Bragg claimed that Trump is essentially trying to use his 2024 campaign to hide from prosecution.
Or in Bragg’s words, “to evade criminal responsibility.”
Defendant repeatedly suggests that because he is a current presidential candidate, the ordinary rules for criminal law and procedure should be applied differently here.
Courts have repeatedly rejected defendant’s demands for special treatment and instead have adhered to the core principle that the rule of law applies equally to the powerful as to the powerless.
It remains to be seen how the judge will rule on Trump’s motion to dismiss.
The case is taking place in the Democrat stronghold of New York City.
So, it is not expected that things are going to go Trump’s way.
The trial is currently scheduled to take place in March 2024, should the case make it to trial.
