Bragg Made Foolish Move In Trump’s Case, Legal Analyst Says 

Daily Report May 09,2024

Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg and his team of prosecutors were accused of throwing a grenade “on their own case” against former President Donald Trump.

Fox News legal analyst Gregg Jarrett made the accusation during a Wednesday appearance on Fox Business’ “Kudlow.” Jarrett, while responding to adult film star Stormy Daniels’ disastrous Tuesday testimony in court, told Fox Business host Larry Kudlow that prosecutors made a foolish move when they called Daniels to the stand.

“These Democrat prosecutors threw a grenade on their own cases,” Jarrett told Kudlow. “The Alvin Bragg case yesterday in New York, it was so foolish for the prosecutors to call Stormy Daniels to the witness stand. Nothing she said is remotely relevant to the charges against Donald Trump. You know, she was just called there to slime Trump, to humiliate him with salacious stories. Her testimony was probative of nothing, it was highly prejudicial, which means under the rules of evidence, it’s inadmissible but you have got a biased judge who deliberately allowed it which creates reversible error.”

Jarrett also commented on United States District Judge Aileen M. Cannon’s decision to indefinitely postpone Trump’s classified documents trial. The judge cited a host of unresolved pre-trial motions as reasons for her decision. Special Counsel Jack Smith’s admission that his team may have tampered with some of the evidence also contributed to Cannon’s decision.

“What you just described is planting evidence by government officials to falsely incriminate a target defendant and you know, Jack Smith is to blame for a lot of this. He got caught himself tampering with evidence, Larry,” Jarrett continued. “The digital scan of the records doesn’t match the physical order of the boxes that were seized by the FBI. So, Smith was forced to admit to the court that evidence was altered, it was manipulated he also admitted he misled the court, he deceived the judge. I don’t see a trial happening anytime soon if at all.”

Jarrett suggested that Smith’s case against the former president could be dismissed based on evidence tampering.

“This case could be dismissed over what we’ve just described, prosecutorial and government misconduct,” Jarrett said. “It could be dismissed for selective prosecution, that’s a pending motion or it could be unlawful appointment of Smith himself, because Larry, he was never Senate-approved which the special counsel statute requires.”
