Is Alvin Bragg’s Case Against Donald Trump a Historic Mistake?

Is Alvin Bragg’s Case Against Donald Trump a Historic Mistake?

Here’s The Scoop

The Manhattan District Attorney’s case against former President Donald Trump may be a historic blunder, as per Boston University law professor Jed Handelsman Shugerman. In a scathing New York Times guest essay, Shugerman derided the case as a legal farce, with baseless arguments and a thin premise at best.

Shugerman has expressed deep concerns over the prosecutors’ unprecedented use of state law and their evasion to specify a valid election crime or a plausible theory of fraud. These allegations, he argues, seem to be a desperate attempt to fit a federal case within state jurisdiction.

The DA’s office has accused Trump of committing “election fraud” by attempting to unlawfully influence the 2016 presidential election. However, Shugerman highlights an overlooked fact: it’s perfectly legal for a candidate to pay for a nondisclosure agreement. Labeling it as “election fraud” is a gross exaggeration, setting up a jury with expectations that the prosecutors will inevitably fail to deliver.

Shugerman concludes that this case seems to be more about Manhattan politics than New York law, eight years after the alleged crime. He warns this case could serve as a cautionary tale of broader prosecutorial abuses in America, urging for bipartisan reforms in our overly partisan prosecutorial system.

Is Alvin Bragg’s case against Donald Trump a historic mistake? The evidence, or rather the lack of it, suggests it might just be.

    It is wrong to hold President Trump accountable for his belief and actions.

      Then I guess that would open the door for prosecution of Kennedy, Bush I & II, Clinton, Obama, Biden and probably most presidents before them. If presidents had to worry about their decisions, action and policies then many already difficult decisions might be made making their decision making impotent. Dropping the atomic bomb on Japan makes this point most germane.

    This was a farce and it is hard to believe that higher courts didn’t support former President Trump in not validating the results of the case. It is sad when a State has a Attorney General that runs on political dissention and then commits illegal acts to try and persecute the said party. I hope she loses in the next election. She doesn’t deserve to be an Attorney General which is supposed to be an office not showing favoritism to anyone.

    It is nothing more than corruptness. When a corrupt DA-a Corrupt Judge and a corrupt Dumocratic behind this-In the corrupt dumocratic party I guess you can be found guilty of a non crime. It is totally repulsive and disgusting to see such corruptness in our great USA- but then we have a corrupt president and a corrupy party who is just plain disgustingly stupid.

    He’s guilty of cooking the books to pay Daniels, yes, a misdemeanor. The DA overcharged him and the liberal judge allowed it. This trial’s all about politics, not justice. I have no use for Trump but I’m more disgusted with the way the liberals are trying to railroad the man than I am with his egomaniacal utterings and dictatorial demeanor.
