Alvin Bragg Won The Battle, But Lost The War

By Ray Cardello for June 1, 2024, Season 26 / Post 41

Until I can write about this ridiculous, rigged trial being overturned, I hope this will be my last article on this sad chapter in our history. Alvin Bragg, like Leticia James, is the epitome of the new generation of legal minds who do not fight crime but people. Bragg and James campaigned on the promise that they would “get” Donald Trump. Neither had specific crimes they could point to, but this trial proved you do not need a crime to convict your target. The actual crime that New York was trying Trump for violating was not disclosed until the summation and directions to the jury. That violates the 5th Amendment, just one of many reasons this verdict will be overturned. Democrats like to profess they are the Party of the Rule of Law, but this trial shows how far from the Law they run.

The tone for Republicans was evident as soon as the verdict was announced. The number of people flocking to the Trump website was so large that the site crashed for a short time until the techs could resurrect it and get the cash register running smoothly again. James Madison wrote about a day like today in the Federalist Papers. Madison, along with Alexander Hamilton and John Jay, wrote extensively in The Federalist Papers to warn a budding new democracy of the dangers of mob, or faction, rule, and those brilliant men who came together to give birth to this great country made provisions to overcome such a day. This dark day in our history will put those plans to the test. No one is above the law, but this trial showed that the law, used as a weapon, can bring anyone down.

Alvin Bragg went to the podium within hours of the verdict, thanked the jury, and praised the prosecution team for bringing the correct ending to this trial of Donald Trump. He explained that this type of white-collar crime is the purpose of the office of the District Attorney. That is such a sad and stupid statement and so understandable coming from a George Soros-planted DA. As New York City is turning into a hell-hole because of the litany of crimes that Bragg announced on his first day, his office would not pursue.

Among the crimes, Bragg said his office would not prosecute:

  • Marijuana misdemeanors, including selling more than three ounces.
  • Not paying public transportation fare.
  • Trespassing, except a fourth-degree stalking charge
  • Resisting arrest
  • Obstructing governmental administration
  • Prostitution.

Alvin Bragg believes not prosecuting these offenses will make the city safer and the criminal justice system more fair. Those are the beliefs of a man who should not have the power of the office of District Attorney. On the day that Bragg was holding his post-trial celebration, a man was attacking patrons with a machete in a New York McDonald’s. Boy, Trump’s conviction sure made the day safer for those folks.

And let’s talk about this “praiseworthy” jury. These 12 men and women and the dozens of alternates did not ask to be on this jury, but they certainly did not take their responsibility seriously. I have been on three juries, and none of the cases held the weight of this trial. They were simple assault or burglary cases that took hours of deliberation and compromise to decide a verdict. There were many rounds before a unanimous consensus was reached. In this case, the jury took only a few hours and one free lunch to reach a consensus on 34 indictments. That is absurd. The testimony of a hooker/pornstar and a convicted perjurer was in no way persuasive enough to satisfy reasonable doubt on every fabricated charge. The task this jury faced had some pundits predicting at least a week of deliberation and would still probably produce a hung jury, not for this bunch of the newest Liberal heroes. They had to set a record for the quickest time to convict a man, with no prior criminal history, of nearly three dozen charges, or maybe they were just playing their role in this charade. With every bad decision by Bragg and the wrong ruling by Merchan, this outcome should have been obvious. Those few hours in the Jury Room will profoundly impact our country’s future.
