Manhattan Grand Jury DELAYED Again, This Time For A Whole MONTH

You know, I’m beginning to think that whatever “case” Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg had against former President Donald Trump is crumbling. I mean, they delayed twice already and now they’re going to be taking a break for a whole month. What else are we supposed to think? Of course, lots of folks didn’t think Bragg really had anything on Trump to begin with and that an indictment wasn’t actually going to happen. Those folks might end up being right in the long run if this keeps up.

Keep in mind, this break was actually previously scheduled, however, the grand jury was supposed to have heard the case concerning an alleged hush money payment made by the former president to porn star Stormy Daniels, but that has now been pushed back again.

“POLITICO reported that any potential indictment of Trump would not happen until at least the end of April unless the grand jury’s schedule changes,” according to the Daily Wire’s latest report.

“The former president claimed on March 18 that he was going to be indicted on Tuesday of last week, which did not happen. Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg said this week that Trump had ‘created a false expectation that he would be arrested,'” the report continued.

Ah, Bragg is pulling out the left’s new favorite excuse for their own failure to get things done. The whole “it’s Trump’s fault” card. There’s nothing these radical lunatics won’t blame the man for. Nothing.

“The case involves an alleged payment that former Trump attorney Micheal Cohen admits he made to Daniels during the presidential race to keep quiet about an alleged 2006 tryst between Trump and Daniels. Cohen pleaded guilty to related charges and served time in prison,” the Daily Wire said.

While non-disclosure agreements are totally legal, the potential issue in the case of the former president is about how his company reimbursed Cohen for the payment. The payment was listed as a legal expense and the company cited it being for a retainer agreement with Cohen. However, the retainer agreement did not exist and the reimbursement was not in any way related to the legal services provided by Cohen, which sets up a possible misdemeanor criminal charge of falsifying business records.

The report then revealed that Trump was the one who personally signed several of the checks to Cohen while he was in the White House.

As noted by the New York Post and The New York Times, federal prosecutors say that Cohen was paid $420,000 by Trump or Trump’s trust. According to the prosecutors, that money included $130,000 for the payment and $50,000 for digital work Cohen did for Trump. That $180,000 was then allegedly doubled to offset taxes. The remaining $60,000 was a “bonus,” prosecutors say,” the report continued.

Prosecutors can boost the charge up from a misdemeanor to a felony if they have the evidence to prove that Trump’s “intent to fraud” included an intent to commit or conceal an additional crime.

“Prosecutors argue that the second crime is that the alleged $130,000 hush payment was an improper donation to the Trump campaign because the money was used to stop a story for the purpose of benefiting his presidential campaign,” the report concluded.
