Alvin Bragg is an example of everything wrong with New York City. Kathy Hochul and Eric Adams are working daily to bring the greatest city in the world to its knees, but it is Alan Bragg that has destroyed the safety of New Yorkers to the point they are abandoning the city by the thousands.
Alvin Bragg, dismissing criminal cases at a record pace and making cashless bail a new word in our vocabulary, may be the first District Attorney ever to arrest a former President in our history. According to reports, President Donald Trump may be arrested and arraigned.
The Manhattan district attorney’s office recently signaled to Donald J. Trump’s lawyers that he could face criminal charges for his role in the payment of hush money to Stormy Daniels, a pornstar with whom Trump had a relationship. The strongest indication yet that prosecutors are nearing an indictment of the former President.
This action by Bragg is just another step by the Democrat Party to ensure that Trump might be prohibited from running for President in 2024. The polls for Trump are strong, much stronger than Biden’s, and the Dems are fearful that Joe will not repeat his upset of Trump in 2020. The impeachments and January 6th Committee have not been enough to derail Trump, and they believe arresting the former President will be the knockout punch. I see this Hail Mary as the best thing to happen to Trump and his aspirations for returning to the White House.
Seeing the Former President in handcuffs will create the biggest spectacle to hit D.C. that the Capitol has ever witnessed. Even the Democrats celebrating the situation will see through the facade very quickly. The focus will then shift back to Biden, his connection with this arrest, and the apparent crimes he and his family have committed against our country. Biden will be dead in the water, and the Democrats have nobody warming in the bullpen who can defeat Trump. Republicans will rally around the Former President.
Trump has been offered an opportunity to testify before the Grand Jury that handed down the arraignment, but that would be tantamount to walking into the lion’s den. Trump will let the ridiculous matter play out and take advantage of the Democrat overplay.
This farce is a politically motivated move by a rogue DA who reduced 50% of felony charges in his crime-ridden city. Yet, Bragg has taken a “trumped-up” (excuse the pun) that Federal Prosecutors and the Federal Election Commission had decided was not a crime. Bragg is forcing this situation to elevate himself with Progressives, or he is a foolish pawn of the same. Either way, I hope this does play out. Let Trump destroy this move, and end the threat of bogus prosecutions that have haunted Trump for years.
One element I am looking forward to is how the Secret Service detail assigned to Donald Trump handles the scene when officials from Bragg’s office place the cuffs on the Former President. The Service has never faced this dilemma, and this scenario puts them in a conflicted position.
