Legal Experts: Trump Charges Are a Nothingburger w/ No Underlying Crime

'Virtually every legal pundit has said that there is no case here. There was nothing done illegally! ... '

(Mark Pellin, Headline USA) In spite of Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s effort to artificially beef-up his politically motivated case by charging President Donald Trump with 34 felony counts, experts noted that there was no legal basis for the desperate overreach.

Trump walked away from the sham arraignment Tuesday with a public-relations knockout, and his legal team already has set about dismantling what many leading legal analysts called a dismal case that stood little chance of success.

One glaring shortcoming was the lack of an apparent underlying crime that Bragg had used to bootstrap already suspect misdemeanors charges for falsifying business records to bury alleged affairs in an attempt to illegally influence the 2016 election.

“I’ve reviewed the Trump indictment,” wrote Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton. “There’s nothing there. Trump and the American people have been abused.”

House Speaker Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., flipped Bragg’s election interference claims on the embattled prosecutor.

“Alvin Bragg is attempting to interfere in our democratic process by invoking federal law to bring politicized charges against President Trump, admittedly using federal funds, while at the same time arguing that the peoples’ representatives in Congress lack jurisdiction to investigate this farce,” McCarthy wrote. “Not so. Bragg’s weaponization of the federal justice process will be held accountable by Congress.”

“The indictment is legally insufficient on its face,” wrote attorney Robert Barnes.

“New York state law does not make it a crime to influence an election,” Barnes added. “Federal law does not make it a crime either. Maybe that’s why no law is actually cited in the indictment. Nor are the facts sufficient.”

Tacopina was so disdainful of Bragg’s weak sauce case that he had already announced on Monday his plans to file “a host of” motions to dismiss “based on selective prosecution and prosecutorial misconduct,” the Epoch Times reported.

The attorney also said once the indictment was reviewed, more motions were likely, including a venue change or statute of limitations considerations.

Trump also scored an added bonus from the high-profile drama that unfolded inside the Lower Manhattan courtroom and around the country, which he was quick to spin to his advantage.

Images of Trump waving to crowds of supporters before his court appearance, along with photos of Trump fans lining streets, have already become legend.

The stone-cold stare Trump delivered entering court was from a leader who could stand down a lunatic like Putin. Biden has only been able to mange a stare with that intensity after scoring a sugar rush from Jeni’s chocolate chip and seeing a dead congresswoman standing in the way of his next hair-sniff fix.

“The hearing was shocking to many in that they had no surprises,’ and therefore, no case,” Trump posted on Truth Social while he was en route to Mar-a-Lago after being arraigned. “Virtually every legal pundit has said that there is no case here. There was nothing done illegally!”

Conservative talkshow host Dan Bongino, a former NYPD officer and U.S. Secret Service agent, tweeted that “1% of me thought Alvin Bragg couldn’t be this dumb but I read the indictment & it was even worse than we thought.”

Bragg’s case was so demonstrably limp that even fake news regime collaborators were forced into conceding the obvious.

On top of the disappointment that many on the Left felt from Bragg’s dubious case, they faced another setback in a separate defamation case involving Stormy Daniels, the porn star at the heart of the alleged hush-money case.

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit ruled on Tuesday that Daniels would be required to pay Trump $122,000 in additional attorney fees for a failed defamation lawsuit.

“Congratulations to President Trump on this final attorney fee victory in his favor this morning,” tweeted Harmeet Dillon, one of his attorneys in the case. “Collectively, our firm obtained over $600,000 in attorney fee awards in his favor in the meritless litigation initiated by Stormy Daniels.”
