A new report in the Daily Mail has revealed Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg's lies about his childhood years.
He has "claimed he was raised in 'dangerous' Harlem 'hood, but actually grew up in $2 million brownstone and attended elite private school."
The comment was online from investigative journalist Paul Sperry, who previously has broken some of the largest stories about attacks on President Trump.
He linked to the Mail report.
Bragg has put himself front and center in the headlines in recent days because he is trying to convince a grand jury to indict President Trump.
He apparently is trying to make a crime out of the situation that involved a payment to a porn star many years ago in return for not talking about an alleged affair.
Such nondisclosure agreements are routine in the legal world.
Bragg apparently is trying to make it a crime by characterizing the payment as a campaign contribution, even though his star witness on the topic has contradicted himself in testimony, stating that it was a campaign contribution after stating on the record that it was not related.
The new report explains Bragg "regularly gives speeches about his childhood, recalling that cops and civilians pointed guns at him a half dozen times, and says it's his hardships growing up in Harlem that make him the right man for the moment."
But he actually, the report said, "enjoyed quite a cushy existence, and should stop distorting his past to justify reforms that would keep all but the most serious felons out of jail."
He grew up in Harlem, on "one of the safest blocks around, an upper-middle-class enclave of brownstones known as Strivers Row." Further, he commuted during his childhood to the elite Trinity School on Manhattan's Upper West Side."
The report noted those are "details he conveniently leaves out when he makes his case."
One insider told the Daily Mail that, "He's made his biography his moral compass, making it seem like there's something magic about the life story that gives him the wisdom to establish policies that affect over one million people. I'm not saying he hasn't experienced racism, but there's lots of privilege he leaves out of his story."
Earlier, while a student at Harvard, he admitted his privilege, the report said.
He told a publication then that others in Harlem "wouldn't have the same kind of potential, walking to P.S. whatever and trying to learn from a teacher who might not be as concerned."
He explains he was protected by his block and his parents and he was sent away from the city every summer to vacation in Virginia.
An unidentified detective told the publication, "He keeps throwing up Harlem, Harlem, Harlem, but he went to the best schools with a silver spoon in his mouth. When you're privileged like he is, you don't go through the troubles that the average kids go through in an urban neighborhood."
As a confirmed far-left activist whose campaign was funded by an extremist, George Soros, he raised concerns when he took office for his promise to stop prosecuting many crimes.
At the time, he claimed, "Growing up in Harlem in the 1980s, I saw every side of the criminal justice system from a young age. Before I was 21 years old, I had a gun pointed at me six times: three by police officers and three by people who were not police officers. I had a knife to my neck, a semi-automatic gun to my head, and a homicide victim on my doorstep."
The Daily Mail said Bragg made his past a "central part" of his successful campaign.
But the report said he "barely mentioned the fact he didn't have to attend public school or hang out in the projects. Waking up on Strivers Row, he commuted out of Harlem to the now $57,000-a-year Trinity School on West 91st Street, where children have less of a chance of gaining admission than getting into Harvard. He currently sends his two children to the private school, where legacy students have a decidedly upper hand."
Striver's Row, the report said, was featured in "Jungle Fever," and was "a historic haven for upper-middle-class black professional households."
His father worked for the New York Urban League and his mother was a dean at Borough of Manhattan Community College.
One Daily Mail source said, "There are real victims in New York City, but he's not one of them. We now have the highest homicide ratios we've had in decades. He should stop with the rhetoric so we can have an honest debate about his policies, which are the total opposite of what mayor Eric Adams is talking about."
A commentary at Twitchy, which monitors Twitter comments, said, "BUSTED: Looks like Alvin Bragg has lied his arse off about WAAAY more than we even know."
It continued, "When someone shows you who they really are, believe them."
In a report in Newsweek, Bragg blamed Trump for the issues in his grand jury work that apparently have become obstacles to an indictment, since that work now has been delayed until at least next week.
It explained that in response to a congressional inquiry about what he was doing, he told members of Congress, "Your letter dated March 20, 2023, (the 'Letter'), … is an unprecedented inquiry into a pending local prosecution. The letter only came after Donald Trump created a false expectation that he would be arrested the next day and his lawyers reportedly urged you to intervene. Neither fact is a legitimate basis for a congressional inquiry."
