Former President Donald Trump may not be in much danger of conviction as legal experts believe that the case against him is incredibly weak.
Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg has spent years building a case against Trump and all his efforts appear to be for nothing. Legal experts and even leftist outlets are pointing out that the case against Trump will likely fail and Donald Trump will be vindicated.
Vindication for Trump is the worst possible outcome for Democrats as it will prove his claims of a system being rigged against him and other conservatives.
Former Whitewater deputy counsel Sol Wisenberg commented on the case saying, "The question to ask yourself in a case like this [is], ‘Would a case like this be brought against anybody else, whether he or she be president, former president or a regular citizen?’ The answer is… no."
The indictment of Donald Trump was nothing more than a political hit job that Alvin Bragg likely already knew would never result in a conviction.
Wisenberg continued in his takedown of Bragg's case by saying, "You can debate all day long whether or not… Trump should be indicted related to the records at Mar-a-Lago, whether or not he should be indicted with respect to Jan. 6 incitement of lawless activity… Those are real crimes if they occurred, and he committed them. This is preposterous.”
Even former national security advisor John Bolton, who strongly opposes Trump's 2024 ambitions, stated "Speaking as someone who very strongly does not want Donald Trump to get the Republican presidential nomination, I’m extraordinarily distressed by this document. I think this is even weaker than I feared it would be.”
The case that Bragg has chosen to go after Trump with is fundamentally weak. Even the Department of Justice, which is full of leftists, didn't bother with it.
George Washington University law professor Jonathan Turley explained, "There’s a good reason why the Department of Justice did not prosecute this case: Because it’s been down this road before. It tried a case against former Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards arguing that hush money paid to another woman, who bore a child out of that relationship, was a campaign violation. That was a much stronger case, but they lost."
Bragg has made a potentially fatal mistake for both him and the Democrat Party. Bragg is already fending off an investigation from House Republicans over his indictment of Trump.
As for Democrats, they have good reason to be terrified of the potential fallout of Trump being cleared of any wrongdoing.
Both Trump supporters and moderate Americans have been stirred up by the indictment and this entire saga may have pushed a significant number of voters towards the right.
Donald Trump will have plenty of ammunition to use in his campaign for a second term as President next year.
Of course, this is assuming that Bragg and his ideological compatriots in the justice system don't come up with some way to stack the deck against Trump. If the conviction of Uber driver Daniel Perry proved anything, it's that the left will go to any length to win and subvert justice.
