Former President Donald Trump told reporters late Saturday that Alvin Bragg, the Manhattan D.A., may have already “dropped” the case against him.
“I think they’ve already dropped the case. It’s a fake case. Some fake cases, they have absolutely nothing,” Trump told reporters while on his plane after his Waco, Texas rally, Axios reported.
Trump has made similar comments in recent posts on Truth Social. “The Manhattan D.A. Witch Hunt against me is DEAD, no evidence at all, & it has been conclusively proven that I did nothing wrong! The evidence against their ‘Star’ witness, however, is overwhelming,” the former president posted to Truth Social on Saturday.
“An already disbarred lawyer & convicted Felon, the only question left is will the D.A.s Office sue him for lying & fraud. They should! The SDNY already found him guilty on charges unrelated to “TRUMP,” & wrote a scathing report. He is responsible for time taken away from the D.A. on VIOLENT CRIME!”
Alvin Bragg’s D.A. office has yet to recently comment on the Trump case, which involves alleged “hush money” payments Trump’s former lawyer, Michel Cohen, sent to adult film actress Stormy Daniels. Both Daniels and Trump have denied having an affair.
Cohen testified against Trump before the New York grand jury that is in charge of investigating the case. Trump ridiculed Cohen at the Saturday rally, calling him a “proven liar, a convicted felon, and a disbarred lawyer.”
