What former New York Prosecutors Say About Bragg’s fake case against Trump
“If it wasn’t Donald Trump, no prosecutor in the world would have touched this,” former Manhattan assistant district attorney Daniel Bibb told Fox News. “If you and I did what Trump did, we never would have been charged.”
And former Manhattan prosecutor-turned-criminal defense lawyer Mark Bederow said that “if you bring an unprecedented case like this against a former president and current presidential candidate, it’s essential for the credibility of the criminal justice system to present a clear and cogent explanation of your theory as opposed to saying I don’t have to tell you.”
Bragg said that he is legally not required to disclose the second alleged offense. The indictment against Trump also does not say what the crime is, which legal experts say could be problematic.
But while Bragg’s case appears to be flawed, Bederow argued, he has an advantage because of Manhattan’s overwhelmingly Democratic jury pool.
“This is Manhattan, so the DA has an overwhelming home-court advantage,” the attorney told Fox News. “If you put Donald Trump on trial for the Kennedy assassination, a Manhattan jury would probably find he’s the guy in the grassy knoll.”
