According to Alvin Bragg, the unprecedented case brought by the Manhattan District Attorney’s office against former President Donald Trump aims to “guarantee that everyone stands equal before the law.”
According to Bragg, no amount of money or influence can alter that eternal American ethos.
Following Trump’s Tuesday appearance in a Manhattan courthouse on 34 criminal charges related to hush money payments to numerous individuals during the 2016 presidential campaign, Bragg addressed a room full of media.
The ex-president entered a not-guilty plea.
According to Bragg, who assumed office in 2022 and at first halted the office’s progress toward charging Trump, new information unavailable to his predecessor prompted the office to move forward now.
He didn’t go into detail about the evidence or how the prosecutors learned about it.
When the cases are prepared, I bring them, replied Bragg.
