  2. Of course we have to be concerned about this but hauling him in front of congress so everyone can take their 5 minute turn to either tell him he's bad or tell him how he's a hero doesn't really fix anything….

  3. Alvin Bragg is such a sleazy,lying,weak Politician. Please bring him, the Judge, his daughter,and the jurors to explain themselves.And yes why charge a non victim crime when u let Linkin Riley's killer go free?

  4. You know talk is CHEAP. Im tired of hearing all these gop congressmen and senators talk about how this Trump trial and conviction is a disgrace. Do something besides talk for once. Your outrage is meaningless.

  5. I still have faith in this country and its Constitutions. Go vote, people, in November. Vote that it will be a landslide win for Trump like Reagan did. Then nobody can deny and the lefts, the mainstream media and big techs cannot hide and lie.

  6. The Legacy of Bragg: Letting criminals run free in the streets of NY and victimizing the community. A Prosecutor who is a Travesty and Betrayal to the people he pretends to represent. Thanks for the Felons you turn loose daily Bragg, you really hurt the general public. Hope NY progressives are proud of making our city even more dangerous. Repulsive.

  7. Business wrong entry is not a felony, nothing is proven so far, the charges are totally fake and manufactured, a disgrace, even Vladimir Putin publicly humiliated Joe Biden, ' This is White House elimination of political rivals.' Just like what Putin did to all his political rivals.

  8. The corrupt Nodfather had everybody bought off but pushed his luck and did too much criminal stuff. The trail of victims became so long that it was embarrassing the judicial system. The people wanted it cleaned up and NY to take care of Godfarter, so Bobby III Sticks can bring down more transnational organized crime. Which he's doing.

  9. What was Trump convicted of ?

    Trump was charged with 34 counts of falsification of business records in the first degree, which is a felony in New York.

    In 2017, Cohen and Allen Weisselberg, an executive at the Trump Organization, reached an agreement about how Cohen would be repaid for the $130,000 that he sent to Daniels in exchange for her silence. Weisselberg detailed the calculations in handwritten notes that were shown to the jury at trial.

    Cohen would receive $130,000 for the Daniels payment, plus $50,000 intended for a technology company that did unrelated work for Trump. That amount was doubled to account for taxes that Cohen would have to pay on the income. Weisselberg then tacked on an extra $60,000 as a bonus for Cohen, who was upset that his regular year-end award had been cut. The total worked out to $420,000.

    Cohen would be paid in a series of monthly payments of $35,000 over the course of 2017. The first check was for $70,000, covering two months. Cohen sent an invoice to the Trump Organization for each check, portraying the payment as his "retainer." Every time he was paid, a bookkeeper generated a record for the company's files, known as a voucher, with the description "legal expense." The first three payments were made from Trump's trust, while the remaining nine came from his personal account.

    Each of the 34 charges against Trump corresponded to a check, invoice and voucher generated to reimburse Cohen.
    Prosecutors said Trump knew the payments were to reimburse Cohen for the Daniels payment, not for his legal expenses.

    Why were the charges a felony?

    Under New York law, falsification of business records is a crime when the records are altered with an intent to defraud. To be charged as a felony, prosecutors must also show that the offender intended to "commit another crime" or "aid or conceal" another crime when falsifying records.

    In Trump's case, prosecutors said that other crime was a violation of a New York election law that makes it illegal for "any two or more persons" to "conspire to promote or prevent the election of any person to a public office by unlawful means," as Justice Juan Merchan explained in his instructions to the jury.

    What exactly those "unlawful means" were in this case was up to the jury to decide. Prosecutors put forth three areas that they could consider: a violation of federal campaign finance laws, falsification of other business records or a violation of tax laws.

    Jurors did not need to agree on what the underlying "unlawful means" were. But they did have to unanimously conclude that Trump caused the business records to be falsified, and that he "did so with intent to defraud that included an intent to commit another crime or to aid or conceal the commission thereof."

  10. What do you mean your going to bring in Jim the chump Jordan to figure out what is going on here. Are you that stupid? Anyone with half a brain can it plainly. Maybe Jim could write one of his meaningless letters to Bragg. I'm sure that would terrify Bragg. Its time for republican politicians to get off their assets and do the job they are paid to do
