‘NONSENSE’: Judge Judy Slams Bragg’s Trump Trial


Judge Judy Sheindlin, a prominent figure in the courtroom reality TV genre, publicly criticized Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg on May 30 for using tax dollars to prosecute former President Donald Trump. Sheindlin expressed outrage that the resources dedicated to prosecuting Trump could be better utilized in combating street-level criminals in New York City.

Specifically, Sheindlin lashed out at Bragg, citing her perception that the DA was using the court system for personal gain. When probed further by Chris Wallace as to whether she thought Bragg had acted selfishly, Sheindlin reaffirmed her suspicions, stating that the DA had opted to prosecute Trump instead of focusing on critical issues within the city.

Trump was convicted of first-degree falsifying business records linked to payments made to adult film actress Stormy Daniels during the 2016 election. The original 34 count indictment would normally have been filed as a misdemeanor, but the statute of limitations had expired. However, Bragg chose to pursue a felony charge on the grounds that the falsified documents attempted to conceal a federal offense, despite no such conviction being handed down against Trump.

Sheindlin complimented Trump’s entrepreneurial prowess, attributing his success to his competence as a real estate businessman. Additionally, the judge acknowledged Trump’s impressive impact on the popular reality TV program The Apprentice, praising the former president for his exceptional management skills.
