Bragg’s “Indictment” of Trump Creates Controversy Among Democrats
(RestoreAmericanGlory.com) – Last week, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) declined to say if he was confident in Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg (D) ahead of the possible indictment that he might seek against former President Donald Trump.
When asked about his confidence in Bragg, Schumer said that “it’s premature to comment on what’s happening and we’ll have to wait and see what he does.” In general, Schumer had tried to stir clear of all of the speculations on whether Trump was going to be indicted in the investigation relating to the $130,000 hush money payment allegedly made on his behalf by former fixer Michael Cohen, to adult film star Stormy Daniels. Cohen previously pleaded guilty and was charged in connection to this payment, but prosecutors have so far chosen not to pursue charges against Trump.
Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.), who is up for reelection in 2024 has warned that charges being brought against Trump could potentially have a negative effect on the Democrats as it could appear that they are using the courts to eliminate their political opposition.
During his remarks to reporters on Tuesday he argued that there are many reasons to not support Trump or want him to be the president of the United States again, but that does not mean that they should be allowed to make the “court system be viewed as a political pawn.” He added that this would most likely have the opposite effect than the one people are hoping for.
