Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg has been “struggling” to get a grand jury to indict former President Donald Trump, two sources familiar with the Manhattan DA office told the Daily Mail.
One source called Bragg’s case “weak” and said it is causing a rift within the DA’s office. “They are having trouble convincing the jury to swallow the case. It’s a weak case and has caused divisions in the DA’s office.”
This revelation comes after the grand jury ended up not meeting on Wednesday to consider the charges against the former president. Rumors have swirled their failure to meet suggests prosecutors are struggling to build a strong case against Trump.
The two sources explained the grand jury told jurors they were not needed to appear on Wednesday after they heard evidence regarding the DA’s case. One of the Manhattan court officials said the jury is scheduled to meet on Thursday, and prosecutors “may present one more witness.”
Former President Trump ripped into Alvin Bragg in a Truth Social post on Wednesday. Trump said Bragg is a “Rogue prosecutor” who is “having a hard time with the Grand Jury” and encouraged the Manhattan DA to spend more “time, effort, and money on fighting VIOLENT CRIME, which is destroying NYC, our once beautiful and safe Manhattan.”
“The Rogue prosecutor, who is having a hard time with the Grand Jury, especially after the powerful testimony against him by Felon Cohen’s highly respected former lawyer, is attempting to build a case that has NEVER BEEN BROUGHT BEFORE AND ACTUALLY, CAN’T BE BROUGHT.”
“If he spent this time, effort, and money on fighting VIOLENT CRIME, which is destroying NYC, our once beautiful and safe Manhattan, which has become an absolute HELLHOLE, would be a much better place to live!”
