(Alvin Bragg – a Soros DA, but for some pesky #MeToo stuff)
The last I wrote about Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg and called him a “Soros DA”, I got one of those emails from the Soros people arguing that he’s not theirs. The Soros people get finicky about these things because they back some DAs directly and some indirectly, by taking them on trips and providing them with publicity and support, and I view it as all the same, but in this case there was a split between Soros and Bragg.
A disturbing allegation against Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg during the primary led a George Soros-backed political action committee, Color Of Change, to pull a half-million dollars in funding from his campaign last spring, DailyMail.com can now reveal.
The group was just ramping up its efforts in May, reaching out to New York City voters, when a woman on the list made a serious allegation against Bragg, 48, multiple sources told DailyMail.com.
Did Soros, who famously backed Franken, who had been accused of groping 8 women, and attacked Gillibrand, really care about #MeToo stuff? Probably not. There may have been other issues.
Bragg decided, under pressure, to move forward with a political case against Trump that virtually no one especially the Mueller dead-enders, and not even them, thinks is winnable.
Note the stunning show of support from Schumer.
Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) on Wednesday declined to say whether he has confidence in Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg (D) ahead of an expected indictment of former President Trump.
Asked if he had confidence in Bragg, Schumer answered: “Look, the bottom line, is — as I said — it’s premature to comment on what’s happening and we’ll have to wait and see what he does.”
Wait and see…
Some of the professional “walls are closing in” folks are still riding this gravy train. Andrew Weissman, the man behind the Mueller, has been the loudest fed-level voice touting Bragg’s approach, but even in his recent New York Times op-ed seemingly defending Bragg, it ends on a pathetically weak note.
Do such potential crimes have potential defenses that will be raised and litigated by Mr. Trump if he is charged? Surely. But such charges are not outside the norm and are well within what is required by the rule of law.
The confidence here is incredible.
Also, Weissman notes compelling precedents such as, “charging a teacher for allegedly submitting a fake Covid-19 vaccination card to the New York City Department of Education and her school principal” before admitting that “the analogy to Mr. Trump is imperfect, since paying hush money is not itself illegal”.
When this is your strongest defender, your case is dead in the water.
How much of this does Schumer understand? Who knows. He did have a prestigious Ivy League educational record back when such things meant something, but never practiced law. And yet I suspect he’s run this past enough lawyers to know how it’s going to end. Badly.

lolol, so bad he’s disowned by Soros 🙂
Steven Kardas says
Bragg is a walking turd with all the stink and flies.
Onzeur Trante says
Well that fizzled, but wait…there will be more stupid moves coming because “gotta get Trump”, and Biden- distractions are always in high demand.
Daniel Greenfield says
Now every local DA is getting their own shot.
Imagine if Republicans had given Obama this treatment.
Kynarion Hellenis says
A woman (who remains anonymous) made serious allegations (that remain unspecified) against Bragg and is now silent (paid off?).
Behold the privilege of those who work for the ruling class.

And he’s fat as F. And ugly.

That reminded me: some of those West African slave-owning human sacrificing black kings were so fat they could hardly move, fortunately had plenty of black slaves to carry them around, but obesity made it harder for them to escape from the British forces, I guess being grossly fat was a status symbol, separating them from the scrawny starving peasants. Also the queens were comparable to the kings in their evil nature, being experts at dissembling and hiding their true nature.
They were a lot like the Aztecs: “fetish worshippers” they were called at the time, they had demonic gods like the Aztecs did, and believed human sacrifice (mostly of their own black slaves) was the best way to propitiate their demonic gods.
I wonder if it was jungle drugs that gave them visions of those demonic gods, or whether it was just psychological, the weird conditions in the jungle being enough to cause their imaginations to conjure up visions of those demons.
Jeff Bargholz says
Yes, I read about that, too. I bet it was psychological. I remember when Burton and Speke searched for the source of the Nile, they encountered some nasty people. one of them chucked a spear through Burton’s cheek and knocked outsome of his teeth.
Henry Morton Stanley just blew the jungle bunnies away when they gave him shit.
