Former President Donald Trump has managed to secure a couple of legal wins recently, much to the chagrin of his opponents. First, the gag order in his New York civil fraud case was lifted, allowing him to speak his mind freely once again. And now, an attempt to remove him from the ballot in Colorado has been swiftly rejected. But Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg is not one to give up easily. Bragg is determined to prevent Trump from achieving another victory.
According to ABC News, Bragg has submitted a court filing opposing Trump’s motion to have his charges dropped. The former president was indicted in March on charges related to an alleged hush money payment to Stormy Daniels. Bragg has accused Trump of falsifying business records by classifying the payment as a legal expense.
In response, Trump’s lawyers argue that he did nothing wrong by using his personal funds to pay his personal attorney. They also claim that the ongoing legal proceedings are interfering with Trump’s 2024 presidential campaign. It seems that Trump’s opponents are desperate to prevent him from running for office again, resorting to any means necessary to take him down.
Bragg dismisses these arguments, accusing Trump of trying to evade criminal responsibility because of his political power. He insists that the rules should apply to Trump just like they do to anyone else. However, some legal experts, including Jonathan Turley from George Washington University Law School, have criticized Bragg’s case, calling it “unprecedented and likely unsustainable.” It appears that the district attorney’s efforts to bring down Trump may not be as solid as he thinks.
In the end, it seems that Bragg’s attempts to stop Trump from winning just keep falling short. It’s clear that Trump’s opponents are willing to go to great lengths to take him down, but he continues to outmaneuver them at every turn. As the 2024 presidential election looms closer, it will be interesting to see how these legal battles unfold and whether they will ultimately have any impact on Trump’s political future. One thing is for sure, though – Trump is not going down without a fight.
