Alan Dershowitz: DA Alvin Bragg Was Looking To Charge Trump With A Felony, Could Land Himself In Prison Instead

(Liberty Bell) – Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg is hard at work attempting to pin a felony charge on former President Donald Trump, however, it might end up being him who faces a felony due to leaks concerning the grand jury indictment against Trump. Why? Because Bragg might actually be the source of the leak. That’s one way to throw away your career. Leftists are so sold out to their vendetta against the former president that they would commit career suicide in order to help push a narrative. That’s dedication.

“As noted by Newsweek, pieces of the indictment, but not the full document, have been leaked to the media, hence reports have been flying that there are 30 counts against Trump, at least one of which is a felony. Bragg is also dealing with calls from House Republicans to provide documents related to his investigation of Trump, NBC reported,” Jack Davis wrote for The Western Journal.

In the state of New York it is considered a felony to leak grand jury documents. Which means that Bragg could be in a world of trouble, according to former Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz in a recent commentary he penned for the New York Sun last Friday.

“It is likely that a serious felony has been committed right under District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s nose, and he is not investigating it. Under New York law, it is a felony to leak confidential grand jury information, such as whether the jurors voted to indict. The protection of secrecy is as applicable to President Trump as it is to anyone else,” Dershowitz went on to say.

“The most likely, though uncertain, scenario is that a person in Mr. Bragg’s office or a grand juror unlawfully leaked the sealed information,” he added.

“It is possible of course that an investigation is underway, but it seems more likely that Mr. Bragg is too busy making up a crime against the man he promised in his campaign to get than investigating a real crime that took place on his watch,” the former Harvard law professor disclosed.

Fox News host Tucker Carlson agreed with Dershowitz.

“[A]s if all of that were not third-world enough, someone leaked the news of Donald Trump’s grand jury indictment to the media. Now, that in itself is a crime under the law in New York. In fact, a much bigger crime than those under which Donald Trump is being charged,” Carlson detailed in his own commentary piece published by Fox News.

“Will Alvin Bragg prosecute the leaker? Please. It’s almost certainly someone in his own office,” Carlson remarked.

During an interview that was noted by Newsweek, James Trusty, an attorney representing Trump, slammed “leaked indictments making their way out to the public.”

“Again, with Donald Trump, there’s just rule of law. This is just a small example of it that begins with Alvin Bragg’s persecution — his stated aim of indicting him,” he asserted.

“Dershowitz had said earlier that Bragg’s reliance on former Trump attorney Michael Cohen as his key witness could be trouble for the district attorney, because Cohen has already pleaded guilty to lying to Congress. Grand jury testimony from Robert Costello, a former legal adviser to Cohen, also attacked Cohen’s credibility, according to The New York Times,” Davis stated.

“If [Bragg] uses Cohen as a witness, he could actually lose his bar license,” Dershowitz revealed during an interview on Fox Business Network’s “Sunday Morning Futures with Maria Bartiromo” back on March 26, according to Mediaite.

That was just four days before information concerning the indictment of the former president came out in the news cycle.

“It’s unethical to put a witness on the stand who you know is lying, and he has to know that Cohen will be lying,” Dershowitz continued. “Or he tries the case without Cohen, which would be very difficult, or he does the right thing: He drops the case.”

In the article published by the Sun, Dershowitz divulged that based on existing leaks, the indictment is related to how the payments to Stormy Daniels were recorded in the books of the Trump Organization.

“[T]he misdemeanor allegation involving false entries is unprecedented and represents selective prosecution. It is also almost certainly barred by the two-year statute of limitations. In order to elevate this bookkeeping case into a felony, Mr. Bragg must also prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the reason Trump made the false entry — if he himself did it — was solely as a campaign contribution to help him win his election,” the former Harvard law professor declared in the article.

He then added, “If Mr. Trump was motivated in part by his desire to protect his wife, children, and business interests from harmful disclosures, that would not constitute the crime of making an undisclosed campaign contribution. So this too is a stretch.”
