Something corrupt this way comes… could be the begging of a story about radical Marxist George Soros funded, Democrat Manhattan New York DA Alvin Bragg, whose motives for dragging President Donald J. Trump through the courts over old debunked claims against him, made by a seedy opportunistic porno star got some much-needed transparency.
Bragg, who used his office to target Trump just a few months after the 45th POTUS declared his candidacy for 2024 on the America First agenda, is viewed suspiciously by the public for abusing his authority, according to recent polling on the matter.
Interactive polls released fascinating numbers on Wednesday that showed Bragg is not viewed favorably by the public after days and days of confusing statements and evident power grabs meant to damage Trump and ‘get him.’
To start the media war, Trump had brazenly on his social media that he was about to be arrested due to action by Bragg, and the news cycle focused on Trump for days speculating one way or the other about such an arrest.
And apparently, the public was disturbed by the idea and did not like it, and it showed in the following numbers.
“Quinnipiac Poll: Do you think the Manhattan DA’s case involving former President Trump is mainly motivated by politics or primarily inspired by the law?
Motivated by Politics: 62%
Motivated by the law: 32%”

The GOP-led House Oversight Committee got involved after the first days of the scandal unfolding and probed Bragg about his apparent conflict of interest. Braggg pushed back by refusing to answer the Committee Chairman, US Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH).
But Jordan got his number and rang Bragg’s bell, nevertheless, telling the media that Bragg was the object of their investigation and that he was, in fact corrupt:

And now there is news that Bragg is in retreat:
The Manhattan grand jury investigating former President Donald Trump in the Stormy Daniels “hush money” case will not hear evidence again for the rest of the month, according to Martin Walsh, who reported for Conservative Brief, adding more details and links:
“The break would push any indictment of the former president to late April at the earliest, although it is possible that the grand jury’s schedule could change. In recent weeks, the Manhattan district attorney’s office hasn’t convened the panel on certain days. But it is District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s prerogative to ask the grand jury to reconvene if prosecutors want the panel to meet during previously planned breaks,” Politico reported.
“The grand jury, which heard testimony in the Trump case on Monday, isn’t meeting Wednesday and is expected to examine evidence in a separate matter Thursday, the person said. The grand jury, which typically meets Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays, is scheduled to consider another case next week on Monday and Wednesday, the person said, and isn’t expected to meet Thursday due to the Passover holiday,” the outlet added.
The most recent witness to testify was David Pecker, the former publisher of the National Enquirer, who appeared before the grand jury on Monday.
“Pecker was a key player in the $150,000 “catch-and-kill” payment to former Playboy model Karen McDougal, in which the Enquirer bought the publishing rights to her claim that she — like Daniels — had an affair with Trump before he became president. The Enquirer never reported McDougal’s allegations but its parent company, American Media Inc., featured her in other publications. Trump has denied having sex with either woman and has denied any wrongdoing in connection with the payments to them,” according to the New York Post.
Manhattan District Attorney Bragg responded last week to a potential indictment and arrest of former President Donald Trump. Unfortunately, Bragg issued a vague statement that did not actually provide any information about what might happen next.
Bragg sent a letter to members of the House Judiciary Committee after they sent their own letter “demanding communications, documents, and testimony relating to Bragg’s unprecedented abuse of prosecutorial authority and the potential indictment of former President Donald Trump.”
In his letter, the Manhattan DA said his office will “publicly state the conclusion of our investigation—whether we conduct our work without bringing charges, or move forward with an indictment.”
Bragg also addressed the letter the House Judiciary Committee previously sent to his office and said, “Your letter dated March 20, 2023, (the ‘Letter’), in contrast, is an unprecedented inquiry into a pending local prosecution. The letter only came after Donald Trump created a false expectation that he would be arrested the next day and his lawyers reportedly urged you to intervene. Neither fact is a legitimate basis for a congressional inquiry.”
The Manhattan grand jury hearing evidence in the criminal investigation into Trump has taken many turns in the last week.
The case involves Trump’s alleged role in hush money payments to adult film star Stormy Daniels ahead of the 2016 election, allegedly to keep Daniels quiet about an affair the two of them had in 2006.
The indictment has triggered outrage from many given federal prosecutors in the U.S. attorneys office for the Southern District of New York chose not to charge Trump in 2019 related to the payment to Daniels.
The Federal Election Commission also tossed its investigation into the matter in 2021.
The DA’s reported decision also comes as Trump is running for president in 2024, which has led to some arguing that the investigation and charges are politically motivated.
