Alvin Bragg Backs Down from Wanting Trump in Jail

Democratic Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg on Tuesday withdrew his request to New York State Supreme Court Justice Juan Marchan to jail former President Donald Trump for violating a gag order, court reporters said.

President Trump appeared to criticize Bragg’s bluff, saying in April that it was a “huge honor” to be a “modern-day Nelson Mandela” for “clinking” for telling the truth about Marchan. Ta.

At Tuesday’s hearing, Mr. Bragg asked Mr. Marchand to urge Mr. Trump to be punished for allegedly violating the gag order. Marchand has the power to fine the former president and impose up to 30 days in jail for allegedly violating the order.

Mr. Bragg appeared indifferent during the hearing. He recanted and did not ask the judge to punish Mr. Trump with any prison time.

Reuters report At the request of Bragg’s prosecutors:

Prosecutor Conroy called President Trump’s April 17 Truth Social post about liberal activists caught trying to infiltrate the Trump jury “deeply disturbing.”

Trump’s post attributed the remarks to Fox News host Jesse Watters.

Conroy said Watters said on the show that he was “covertly catching liberal activists who lied to judges.” Conroy said the Truth Social post said, “They’re secretly capturing liberal activists who lied to judges to get a leg up on Trump juries.”

Marchand said he does not intend to immediately remove him from the bench with a gag order.
