Alvin Bragg’s case against Trump is about election interference




Alvin Bragg gets a death threat from Florida.

Former President Donald Trump is facing many legal issues, some of which involve overt attempts to interfere in the 2020 election, which he lost by a wide margin. But it turns out that the so-called “hush money” lawsuit also concerns alleged election interference by the then-presidential candidate.

So two different elections, two different cases of election interference, which speaks to the character of Donald Trump in a way that is hardly an endorsement of him as president of any democratic institution, let alone an entire country.

Legal expert Norm Eisen, who was in court Monday morning, pointed out that hush money is not a crime, “but allegedly misleading voters to seize power is.”

Lest you think Eisen is just one of many attorneys with an opinion on this case, he actually wrote a book about this trial: “Trying Trump: A Guide to His First Election Interference Criminal Trial.” He was also counsel in Donald Trump’s first impeachment.

In this discussion we learn that the “fundamental legal issue” is the accusation of killing a story that voters deprived of their right to know that could have influenced their vote.

Eisen makes it clear that hush money is not a crime. But Alvin Bragg says there is a pattern of Trump using a $130,000 payment to deprive voters of vital information, which Eisen says is $127,000 more than the campaign contribution limit.

“This payment was made to deprive voters of vital information, which in turn was covered up for the purpose of procuring elections,” the CNN legal expert explained.

Eisen points out that this is an identical pattern to the accusations Jack Smith is making – of misleading voters in an attempt to secure elections with the ultimate goal of seizing power.

In Jack Smith’s case, he was appointed to oversee the investigation into Trump and his allies’ efforts to overturn the outcome of the 2020 election.

Speaking of themes, there’s also the Georgia case against Trump, in which prosecutors allege that Trump tried to stay in power using criminal tactics normally used by gangsters to keep him in power. For example, the ex-president was charged with racketeering under the state’s RICO law.

“Alvin Bragg may not be able to prove it, but that’s why this is alleged election interference,” Eisen concluded.

So while the more salacious aspects of this case draw attention,
Donald Trump has been credibly accused in three separate cases of some form of election interference in multiple elections.

While each of these must be proven and are thus far allegations, the fact that they have been made in three different cases in different jurisdictions, using methods more consistent with a gangster than a political candidate, suggests that Donald Trump will take over whatever power he wants. can grab.

This is not a good trait for someone who is trusted with the nuclear codes and national security secrets that he could, hypothetically, use to influence hostile foreign powers to help them seize power.
