Trump Conviction Will Advance Alvin Bragg’s Political Ascent in the Democratic Party, Report Suggests

Very few people outside of New York were likely to recognize the name of Alvin Bragg before his “hush money” prosecution of President Donald Trump.

Now that Bragg has managed to secure a conviction of Trump, it appears to many observers that the George Soros-funded prosecutor may already have his sights set on one of the many high-profile opportunities.

A new report from USA Today suggests that those opportunities are now available to him due to his doggedly partisan pursuit of the presumptive GOP nominee.

Left-wing denizens of the world in which Bragg operates have made no secret of their glee ever since he secured “guilty” verdicts against Trump in the “hush money” case.

As USA Today notes, Bragg is usually able to maintain a low profile as a parishioner at Harlem’s Abyssinian Baptist Church.

However, on the Sunday following the Trump conviction, he received a standing ovation and direct praise from the pastor.

Similar reactions were plentiful following the jury’s decision late last month.

Far-left commentator Elie Mystal declared, “Bragg really deserves all the flowers.”

Kenneth T. Jackson, an expert on all things New York, noted just how welcome the trial outcome was in the Big Apple.

“Clearly, that was a popular decision in Manhattan,” Jackson stated.

With Bragg’s stock currently soaring over his questionable prosecution of Trump on what many have characterized as an utterly tortured and baseless legal theory, speculation has turned to what his political future may hold in store.

Current New York City Mayor Eric Adams is experiencing a serious slump in popularity.

The Democrat mayor’s downfall could potentially create an opening for Bragg in next year’s election.

As the outlet further notes, New York’s Democrat Gov. Kathy Hochul is also suffering from a “net-negative approval rating.”

The governor will also be up for re-election in 2026, leaving another possible route for Bragg to travel.

Jackson suggests that Bragg’s potential could be boundless, opining:

“If he wants to run for mayor, that’d probably be a possibility.

“Here’s the guy who took on the challenge of the most powerful person in the world, with a case that people didn’t think was the strongest case in history, and to get a unanimous verdict 34 times — you couldn’t get that unanimity voting for motherhood or apple pie.”

Offering a contrary point of view, however, was Bragg advisor Richard Fife, who is assisting in the D.A.’s 2025 re-election bid.

“There are electeds who are in office and always looking for the next office and that’s just not his mindset,” Fife notes.

The near future may not be all smooth sailing for Bragg, however.

Powerful House Republicans have already declared their intention of probing the initiation and prosecution of the New York case against Trump.

House Judiciary Committee chair Jim Jordan previously summoned Bragg and fellow Manhattan prosecutor Matthew Colangelo to provide testimony to the panel on June 13.

However, the D.A.’s office sent a letter Friday declining to attend, citing schedule conflicts, as Fox News reports.

Leslie Dubeck, general counsel in the Manhattan district attorney’s office, responded by informing House Republicans that Bragg is “too busy” to provide testimony.
