Trump suggests Manhattan DA Bragg ‘already dropped the case’ against him: ‘It’s a fake case’
Former President Donald Trump has once again found himself in the spotlight, this time for his comments regarding the ongoing investigation by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg. Trump suggested that Bragg had already dropped the case against him, calling it a fake case. The investigation centers around Trump's financial dealings, specifically his business practices and tax returns. Bragg's office has been investigating Trump for several years, and the former president has repeatedly denied any wrongdoing. In a recent interview with Fox News, Trump claimed that Bragg had already dropped the case against him, saying, It's a fake case. They already dropped it. They have nothing. However, Bragg's office has not made any public statements regarding the status of the investigation. In fact, just last month, the district attorney's office subpoenaed documents from the Trump Organization as part of the ongoing investigation. Trump's comments have been met with criticism from some legal experts, who argue that he is attempting to influence the investigation and undermine the credibility of the district attorney's office. Former federal prosecutor Elie Honig told CNN, It's inappropriate for a subject of an investigation to be commenting on the status of that investigation. It's also just flat-out wrong. The investigation is ongoing. Trump's comments also come at a time when he is facing multiple legal challenges, including a lawsuit filed by the House Select Committee investigating the January 6th Capitol riot. The committee is seeking documents and testimony from Trump and his associates regarding their involvement in the events leading up to the riot. Despite these legal challenges, Trump has remained defiant, insisting that he has done nothing wrong and that the investigations are politically motivated. As the investigation by the Manhattan district attorney's office continues, it remains to be seen what, if any, charges will be brought against Trump. However, his comments regarding the case have once again raised questions about his respect for the rule of law and the independence of the judiciary.
