Former President Donald Trump and his supporters have accused Democratic Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg of being politically biased and of bringing an unprecedented criminal indictment against the former president for pre-planned partisan purposes.
There may be some truth behind that assertion, as a since-deleted but recently uncovered Facebook post from before Bragg was elected showed him promoting a fundraiser event alongside one of the Democratic attorneys who prosecuted Trump in the 2019/2020 impeachment effort, the Conservative Brief reported.
That Democratic attorney was Dan Goldman, who was an impeachment counsel on behalf of Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) in that impeachment trial and now serves as a Democratic congressman from New York.
Paul Sperry, the senior correspondent for RealClearInvestigations, tweeted on Sunday morning, "NEW: This deleted post from DA Alvin Bragg's Facebook reveals ActBlue organized a fundraising event for Alvin Bragg and former Schiff impeachment counsel Dan Goldman to "discuss Donald Trump and what's at stake for the next."
The tweet included a link to an archived version of the since-deleted Facebook post from April 25, 2021, that read: "Please join me on Tuesday in a conversation with Dan Goldman as we discuss the Derek Chauvin verdict, Donald Trump, and what’s at stake for the next #ManhattanDA. #JusticeCantWait. #JusticeForAll."
That post also included a link to the Democrat-aligned ActBlue platform that facilitates donations to Democratic candidates and organizations.
The clear implication is that Bragg, even before he was elected as the Manhattan DA, was already plotting ways to bring a criminal indictment and "justice" against the former president.
Less than a day earlier, in a tweet posted on Saturday evening, Sperry wrote, "DEVELOPING: Hill investigators looking into connections between Dem Rep. ADAM SCHIFF & Dem DA Bragg + Dem Judge Merchan hearing Trump case; Merchan's Dem consultant daughter recently called Schiff a "client" and Schiff's impeachment counsel Dan Goldman has worked closely w/ Bragg."
That was likely in reference to the multiple Republican-led House committees -- including the Judiciary, Oversight, and Administration committees -- that are closely scrutinizing DA Bragg's seemingly partisan criminal indictment of former President Trump on charges that are normally mere misdemeanors but have been elevated to felonies in what even many left-leaning legal experts say is a stretch with little or no merit.
It also referenced the apparent partisan leanings of New York Judge Juan Merchan, who is presiding over Bragg's prosecution of Trump, as well as the professional partisanship of his adult daughter, Loren Merchan, who helps create digital campaign ads for a number of Democratic clients, including the Biden-Harris campaign and Rep. Schiff, among others, as reported last week by Breitbart.
This actually isn't the first time that Sperry has reported on the apparent anti-Trump link between DA Bragg and Rep. Goldman, as he had indicated as much in a tweet posted roughly one week earlier.
On March 30, Sperry said in a tweet, "BREAKING: House sources say Democratic Rep. Daniel Goldman of Manhattan -- who prosecuted the first Trump impeachment & has been bragging to reporters about sabotaging GOP investigations of the Bidens -- has privately consulted with Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg about indicting Trump."
If that assertion is true, and given the recently uncovered Facebook post that had been deleted, it would appear that Bragg has "consulted" with Goldman on how to indict and prosecute Trump for at least the past two years.
This all reeks of extreme partisanship and predetermination of criminal allegations that most Americans find deeply distasteful, if not automatically disqualifying, from individuals who are purported to be neutral and unbiased upholders of the law and Constitution.
