‘A felony, no matter who you are’: Bragg outlines hush money scheme case against ex-President Trump


Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, now the world’s most famous prosecutor, outlined the historic indictment of former President Donald Trump on Tuesday, and asserted that the one-time commander in chief was in serious legal trouble.

Standing before the world, the DA appeared confident with his charges and made long, sweeping expressions with his hands as he alleged that the 76-year-old Trump allegedly attempted to violate state and federal election laws. Bragg argued that Trump orchestrated what that DA called a “catch-and-kill” scheme through a series of concealed payments and false business entries designed to help cover up the former president’s past.
