Legal Experts, Trump Blister Bragg for Leaking Indictment

'Now, if he wants to really clean up his reputation, he will do the honorable thing and, as District Attorney, INDICT HIMSELF... '

(Mark Pellin, Headline USA) Less than 24 hours before former President Donald Trump was scheduled to be arraigned in New York City, a host of legal experts ripped Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg for leaking details of the indictment to mainstream media allies.

Trump took a step further, calling for Bragg to “indict himself,” for the egregious and illegal activity.

“D.A. BRAGG JUST ILLEGALLY LEAKED THE 33 points of Indictment,” Trump posted Monday night on Truth Social. “There are no changes or surprises from those he leaked days ago directly out of the Grand Jury. No Crime by Trump. What a MESS. Bragg should resign, NOW!”

Famed legal analyst Alan Dershowitz agreed with the former president’s reasoning, and said that Bragg or somebody from his prosecuting team likely committed a serious crime.

“The only crime is that somebody criminally leaked the indictment before it was supposed to come out,” Dershowitz told OAN.

“New York penal law provides for a year or five years in jail for any grand juror, any prosecutor, interpreter, police officer who discloses any aspect of an ongoing grand jury proceeding. So DA Bragg has a crime in front of him, committed by one of his people, and he’s not investigating it.”

Michael Isikoff, Russia hoax fake news perpetrator, broke the leaked details for Yahoo News.

“Trump to be formally arrested and charged with 34 Class E felonies for falsification of business records tomorrow,” Isikoff wrote. “But he will not be handcuffed, placed in a jail cell or subjected to a mug shot, per a source debriefed on Tuesday’s procedures.”

Bragg has repeatedly denied that any leaks came from him or his office, despite the limited possibilities that they could have come from any other source. That didn’t stop CNN’s Don Lemon from picking up the cheerleading for Bragg and running with it.

“We don’t know if the DA leaked that information. That is speculation,” Lemon insisted during his show Monday night.

“Well we don’t have that information, so — well, it’s not speculation,” corrected Trump attorney Alina Habba. “We don’t have the information, so it came from their office.”

Fox News host Jesse Watters claimed that Bragg’s Bragg’s office had committed “unlawful grand jury disclosure” in leaking the indictment information.

“That’s a felony,” Watters said. “There’s actually more evidence that Bragg committed a felony than Trump did.”
