Well, it seems that Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg (the man who initially indicted former President Donald Trump) is about to get his comeuppance. He’s officially being sued over his indictment process.
The lawsuits, of which there are two, have been brought and filed by The Heritage Foundation, claiming that Bragg and his office have a document mishandling problem of their own. According to the lawsuits, Bragg has repeatedly refused to release certain information about how he got info on Trump and who it came from.
One can only guess they aren’t quite legal means. Or even more damning is that Bragg may have been plotting with Trump’s political opponents in the White House and Congress.
In either case, it’s not a good look for someone who is supposed to be playing the hero, ensuring that the “evil” man that Trump is can never lead again.
As Mike Howell, director of Heritage’s Oversight Project, says, it started as simply looking into Bragg’s case against Trump. But then, some things didn’t seem to add up. Questions were asked, and filings under the Freedom of Information were made.
And yet, Bragg’s office says the information requested cannot be given.
Howell says, “The fact we have to file a lawsuit against Bragg, who says he can’t produce these records and says he doesn’t have the systems to do so, is proof-positive of another dual standard of justice at play in this country.”
Howell continued, saying that Bragg “who’s going after the former president on a loony theory about his document retention,” and yet he can’t “even keep his own documents.” “It’s in violation of the information laws he is bound by.”
At best, it makes Bragg a hypocrite.
At worst, it’s noted that he’s refusing to turn over the information he has to have somewhere, all while defending, delaying, and obstructing this move, literally wasting millions of New York’s taxpayer dollars on a case he himself is guilty of.
