Corrupt Leftwing Soros DA Alvin Bragg Threatens Trump With 30 Days of Jail Time If He Exercises His Right, as a Candidate for President, to Criticize His Hyperpoliticized Unjust Prosecution

Consider that Trump's political candidacy depends on him refuting this absurd prosecution as corrupt and partisan -- and George Soros' catspaw Alvin Bragg threatens to throw Trump in jail if Trump dares to dispute this Democrat war-by-other-means prosecution.

Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg filed a motion Tuesday to hold former President Trump in contempt of court, claiming he violated the gag order imposed upon him by publishing three social media posts relating to two known witnesses in his criminal trial -- Michael Cohen and Stormy Daniels.

Bragg is urging Manhattan Judge Juan Merchan to also warn Trump that "future violations" of the gag order can be punished "not only with additional fines, but also with a term of incarceration of up to thirty days."

Merchan last month imposed a gag order on Trump, due to his "prior extrajudicial statements." Merchan said they established "a sufficient risk to the administration of justice."

Merchan ordered that Trump cannot make or direct others to make public statements about witnesses concerning their potential participation or about counsel in the case -- other than Bragg -- or about court staff, DA staff or family members of staff.

So Trump can't point out that Merchan's Democrat-operative daughter works for a company that fundraised $33 million on the promise to get Trump convicted.


Merchan also ordered that Trump cannot make or direct others to make public statements about any prospective juror or chosen juror.

So Trump can't say anything when the DA fills the jury with leftwing ringers.

...


The first statement Bragg's team said was in violation of the order was a social media post on April 10 about Michael Avenatti, a lawyer who formerly represented adult film actress Stormy Daniels. Avenatti was later convicted of stealing from Daniels.

Trump, earlier this month, re-posted a statement from Avenatti, which said: "We can't be hypocrites when it comes to the 1st Amendment. It is outrageous that Cohen and Daniels can do countless TV interviews, post on social, & make $$ on bogus documentaries--all by talking sh*t about Trump--but he's gagged and threatened with jail if he responds."


Trump, after re-posting Avenatti's statement, added: "Thank you to Michael Avenatti --for revealing the truth about two sleeze bags who have, with their lies and misrepresentations, cost our Country dearly!!"

...

Bragg's office also pointed to another post from April 10, in which Trump shared a picture of a document titled "Official Statement of Stormy Daniels," which was dated Jan. 30, 2018.

"Over the past few weeks I have been asked countless times to comment on reports of an alleged sexual relationship I had with Donald Trump many, many, many years ago," the statement from Daniels says. "I am not denying this affair because I was paid 'hush money' as has been reported in overseas owned tabloids. I am denying this affair because it never happened."

Trump posted, along with the photo, "LOOK WHAT WAS JUST FOUND! WILL THE FAKE NEWS REPORT IT."

Separately, Daniels had denied the allegation in a Jan. 10, 2018 statement as well.

"I recently became aware that certain news outlets are alleging that I had a sexual and/or romantic affair with Donald Trump many, many, many years ago. I am stating with complete clarity that this is absolutely false," Daniels wrote in that Jan. 10, 2018 statement. "My involvement with Donald Trump was limited to a few public appearances and nothing more."

Daniels wrote in the letter that when she met Trump, he was "gracious, professional and a complete gentleman to me and EVERYONE in my presence."


"Rumors that I have received hush money from Donald Trump are completely false," the letter read. "If indeed I did have a relationship with Donald Trump, trust me, you wouldn't be reading about it in the news, you would be reading about it in my book. But the fact of the matter is, these stories are not true."

So Trump is not allowed to bring up Stormy Daniels' past statements, which she now alleges are false, to impeach her credibililty.

Remember, he's not just a defendant in a corrupt prosecution -- he's running for president of the United States. He is not like the normal defendant where you could, maybe, say, "You can make those arguments in court, but not for public consumption."

He's a presidential candidate -- he has to make arguments in his defense for public consumption.

And the corrupt Soros DA is following through with his plan to simply make it illegal for Trump to run for office.

Megyn Kelly made a good point: the public interest in Trump's comments is an important factor here, too. We're not just talking about Trump's right to speak -- we are talking about our own right, as citizens charged with electing a president, to receive Trump's statements so we can weigh them in making our votes.

Even CNN's legal analyst Ellie Honig is mocking the weakness of the Soros Catspaw's case.



"Donald Trump is about to face trial for conduct that happened eight years ago; if you have kids in college now, they may have been in elementary school when it all went down," Honig writes in New York Magazine. "The crime is a paperwork offense relating to how Trump and his businesses logged a series of perfectly legal (if unseemly) hush-money payments in their own internal records."


The prosecution's star witness is a convicted perjurer and fraudster who openly spews vitriol at the defendant, often in grotesque terms, essentially for a living.

The famously aggressive feds at the Southern District of New York passed on the case years ago, and current Manhattan district attorney Alvin Bragg's predecessor could have indicted [Trump] before he left office but did not.

The charges are either misdemeanors or the lowest-level felonies (depending on how the jury decides the case), and the vast majority of defendants convicted of similar offenses are sentenced to probation and fines, not prison.

Did I mention that Honig is a legal analyst for CNN?

"Paying hush money is not a crime," Honig admits. "In fact, a hush-money agreement, though seedy, is legally no different from any other contract between private parties. So Trump knowing about the Daniels payoff -- and he clearly did -- is merely a starting point here and insufficient to prove anything criminal."

Once again, leftwing Marxist civilization-destroyers take over an institution with centuries of credibility, strip away all credibility and turn it into a Marxist political weapon, but then wear the skin-suit of the institution demanding the respect previously afforded to the institution.

32 Daniel Baldwin @baldwin_daniel_
Things to remember about Trump's Manhattan trial:

Alvin Bragg is a far left prosecutor who campaigned on 'getting Trump.'

Alvin Bragg is bootstrapping a common misdemeanor into a felony (because the statute of limitations ran out on the misdemeanor).

To do that, Bragg is using Article 175 Section 10 of New York Penal Law. That requires Bragg to prove that Trump is guilty of falsifying business records and then show he did so with the intention of committing a second crime.

The huge issue for Bragg? No one has any idea what the second crime is! Bragg hasn't articulated it. Insanity.

The DOJ, which jumps at any chance to 'get Trump,' and Bragg's predecessor Cy Vance each declined to prosecute Trump for this.

Judge Juan Merchan donated to Biden for President in July 2020. His adult daughter is the president and partner for a Democrat consulting firm that makes money working with far-left candidates who attack Trump for a living.

When Trump and his attorneys pointed this out, Merhcan gagged him, violating his First Amendment rights.

To cap it all off? Bragg's star witness is a serial perjurer. [andy: i.e. Michael Cohen]

Ignore this. Just stay out of New York and dare any other jurisdiction in any other state in the union to make a political arrest based on a corrupt bench warrant and extradite him to New York. There's no way to cover that up, and it would happen on full display.

Now, I think that *would* happen, consequences be damned, and it would then be open season on any politician through corrupt prosecution in State A and arrest and extradition by a friendly in State B, and it would be extremely corrosive in all respects, but this is the world *they* built.

68 They ran out the clock on Trump's presidency from Day 1, now they are trying to run out the clock on the election. This IS the Left's campaign. Biden doesn't have to do anything.

69 This whole thing is f**king absurd.

If Trump wins the Presidency, the first order of business is to sic the f**king DOJ and FEC on LaTit James, Alvin Bragg, Fanni Willis, and the Albany Witch.

All of these f**kers have been using campaign funds inappropriately.

The thing about Braggs bullshit case is he's saying Trump using his own money to pay extortion somehow constitutes and in kind contribution to his campaign.

It's ridiculous and preposterous but that's all thes animals got is pretzel law.

BREAKING: Former Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz says Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg’s case against former President Donald Trump is the “weakest” case he’s seen in 60 years.

Fox News host Sean Hannity prompted the former law professor to analyze the case from a “legal standpoint” due to Bragg’s attempt to increase the charges against Trump.

“I’ve been doing this for 60 years, Sean. Teaching criminal cases, defending criminal cases, writing about criminal cases — this is, by far, the weakest criminal case I have ever seen in my 60 years. There is nothing here. There is no misdemeanor, there is no felony, there is no federal crime. The feds refused to prosecute — even Bragg refused to prosecute until some of his young progressive woke prosecutors demanded that he prosecute,” Dershowitz stated.

Watching these leftist DAs is something. In 99% of cases they don't know their head from their asshole, forget to file proper charges or paperwork (ex. The Loudon County rapist won't have to register as a sex offender for life because the DA simply *forgot to file a motion* with the court) or just never get around to working a case until the court dismisses it.

“Forget about the fact that they’re doing it to try to prevent somebody from running and succeeding in running for president — forget about that. If this were using any individual, this combination of trying to elevate it to a felony by claiming that the only reason that he paid the nondisclosure funds was to prevent voters from learning about it. Obviously, he did it because he didn’t want to embarrass his family, he didn’t want to embarrass his wife.

NY state judges have to run for reelection every x years and the only way to do that it be part of the local political machine, which is 99% Democrap. And the judges must do their masters' bidding or else. It's totally corrupt.

Justices Gorsuch and Alito just annihilated the entire foundation of Biden’s DOJ case against J6 protesters.

They dunk on the US solicitor general with examples of unhinged leftist psychos disrupting official proceedings, and ask why those protesters were never charged.

Alito makes an excellent point about the protesters who shut down the Golden Gate Bridge yesterday, asking the SG if she would apply the same argument if the disruption resulted in someone not making it to court in time to testify.

The SG tries to justify this glaring evidence of a two tiered justice system by claiming that it’s different because those protesters “likely didn’t know they weren’t allowed to disrupt official proceedings.”

Meanwhile, a nana who took a selfie outside of the Capitol is serving jail time.

It’s worth listening to the whole thing, especially BASED Gorsuch with the Jamaal Bowman reference around the 01:10 mark.

Judge Merchan has so generously granted the defense request to strike the juror in seat 2 for cause. From WSJ pool report: Before granting the request, he read the language of the social media post in question into he record. It is, in part:
"Good news!! Trump lost his court battle on his unlawful travel ban!!!”
Merchan said, if the post had ended there he wouldn't have a problem.
Seriously? Good news?
The post later says, "Get him out, and lock him up.”

I think that's largely the reason The Deep State/The Left has gone barking mad over Trump and raised everything to DEFCON 1.

They have nothing on him, nothing to get him on and that has obviously driven them insane.

The guilty cannot countenance the presence of an honest man amongst them lest it make their guilt more obvious.

I don't think they ever intended to win, ultimately. The charges Bragg brought in this case are a joke. He took a misdemeanor case that even the very political SDNY refused to prosecute and somehow shoehorned it into a felony and is bringing charges that have never been brought before. He could only get a win with judge as corrupt as this one.

The goal was to hurt the campaign just like all the other charges. Make Trump fight with both hands tied behind his back. It hasn't worked at all at least so far.

That depends entirely on the outcome of the election.

If Trump manages to beat the fraud or is permitted to win by the Party, the appeals court will overturn because everything was obviously corrupt. This then goes away.

If he doesn't manage to beat the fraud, then they will drag their heels and make a ruling - upholding or overturning - far too late for anything to matter, and long after the "convicted criminal Donald Trump" in an orange jumpsuit stuff has played out in its entirety.

The way it's described is a bit disingenuous, and the reality actually makes Mellencamp look even worse.

From what I heard int he clip posted earlier today, it wasn't "the crowd." It was a heckler. One heckler objecting to a political harangue at what was supposed to be a concert, and the crowed booed him down. The crowd was on Mellencamp's side.

Then he swore at the guy, pitched a fit, said he was going to cut the show short, sang a few bars from "Jack and Dianne" and left.

What. An. Asshole.

NORTHCOM is monitoring the recent Iranian attacks in the CENTCOM AOR and conducted a review of the potential for related threats against DOD assets in the NORTHCOM AOR. Due to the possibility of inspired attacks by Homegrown Violent Extremists that typically provide little to no warning, NORTHCOM has directed the implementation of additional FPCON measures.

327 Gag orders have traditionally been applied to protect the right of a DEFENDANT to a fair trial, not to protect the prosecution from criticism. I wonder if there is any precedent at all of enforcing a gag order preventing the Defendant from criticizing the nature of charges brought as unfair, biased etc (as opposed to attorneys, who are governed by special rules of "respect" for the Court).

As a "prior restraint" on speech, a gag order is (should be) subject to the strictest scrutiny of necessity, vs the free speech rights infringed.

And in this case, you have the highest possible speech interest (major political speech, always afforded the highest deference under the Constitution).

And the "threat" here amounts to nothing more than a (likely fake) heckler's veto of supposed "online threats" --always a crap justification under the law.

Interestingly, the nature of the gag order also belies the whole theory of the prosecution. Trump was well within his rights to use campaign funds to protect his reputation (furthering his candidacy). Much as preventing him from speaking is, by definition, a harm to his candidacy (therefore by definition a political speech infringement).

Go to Florida, hold up in Mara Largo and tell Bragg to fuck himself. "Come and get me". Hire a mercenary army to guard the place and take it from there. The left obviously wants a war. Give them one. The most dangerous individual to deal with is the one who finally reaches the position of having nothing else to lose. Maybe a few thousand of his supporters (or more) can position themselves around Trump's compound. ALL of this has to eventually come to a head. Just a matter of time.
