Soros-backed Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg is gearing up for lawfare against Donald Trump.

He is pushing the envelope.

And Alvin Bragg is about to end up in the Supreme Court over this attack on Donald Trump.

Bragg asks Democrat judge for gag order in sham prosecution 

In a series of pre-trial motions ahead of the March 25 trial start date, Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg asked Judge Juan Merchan – a donor to President Joe Biden – to impose a gag order on former President Donald Trump.

The goal is to prevent Trump from commenting on witnesses – who are likely to be people like his former lawyer Michael Cohen who will use the trial to attack Trump’s candidacy – court staff, or prosecutors working with Bragg on this kangaroo court.

Bragg deployed the typical Left-wing argument that Trump incites insurrection and violence so the court needed to take away his First Amendment rights.

“Defendant has a long history of making public and inflammatory remarks about the participants in various judicial proceedings against him, including jurors, witnesses, lawyers, and court staff,” Bragg argued. “Those remarks, as well as the inevitable reactions they incite from the defendant’s followers and allies, pose a significant and imminent threat to the orderly administration of this criminal proceeding and a substantial likelihood of causing material prejudice.”

“The U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit recently upheld restrictions on defendant’s extrajudicial speech that are essentially identical to the ones requested by the People here. This Court should accordingly grant the narrowly tailored protective measures sought here,” Bragg added.

Trump campaign responds

The Trump campaign slammed the proposed gag order with spokesman Steven Cheung blasting Bragg for trying to “impose an unconstitutional infringement on President Trump’s First Amendment rights, including his ability to defend himself, and the rights of all Americans to hear from President Trump.”

Bragg also sought to ban Trump from commenting on any of the jurors or revealing their identities.

Jurors should obviously feel safe to serve and render whatever verdict they believe the evidence presented deserves.

But this is a political trial with a candidate for President of the United States going before a jury picked from one of the most heavily Democratic bastions in America.

There is little to no chance Trump can receive a fair hearing.

Bragg stretched the law to invent federal campaign finance crimes that don’t exist and he doesn’t have jurisdiction over what he alleged Trump did, falsify business records to hide repaying Michael Cohen $130,000 for a nondisclosure settlement to Stormy Daniels in October 2016.

But Bragg is counting on the fact that he can stack the jury with 12 angry Democrats and secure a conviction in what will amount to a political show trial.

The gag order will prevent Trump – or anyone else – from telling the American people he faced a jury of his political opponents as opposed to his peers.
