Before Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg announced the charges against former President Donald Trump after his arraignment Tuesday, Trump continued his justifiable attacks on the liberal prosecutor. 

According to Breitbart, Trump called on Bragg to indict himself after it was reported that the details of the indictment was leaked to the media, a felony under New York state law.

Yahoo News reported the leaked information prior to the process playing out at the Lower Manhattan courthouse.

Trump "has been charged with 34 felony counts for falsification of business records, according to a source who has been briefed on the procedures for the arraignment of the former president," the report read.

Trump responds

Anyone familiar with the former president could have bet their life savings that he would've responded to the leak, and he did just that, using his Truth Social platform to slam the progressive DA.

"Wow! District Attorney Bragg just illegally LEAKED the various points, and complete information, on the pathetic Indictment against me. I know the reporter and so, unfortunately, does he," Trump wrote.

"This means that he MUST BE IMMEDIATELY INDICTED. Now, if he wants to really clean up his reputation, he will do the honorable thing and, as District Attorney, INDICT HIMSELF. He will go down in Judicial history, and his Trump Hating wife will be, I am sure, very proud of him!"

"D.A. BRAGG JUST ILLEGALLY LEAKED THE 33 points of Indictment. There are no changes or surprises from those he leaked days ago directly out of the Grand Jury. No Crime by Trump. What a MESS. Bragg should resign, NOW!" Trump added in a follow-up post.

"Trump comes out swinging and even manages a slight hint of comedy, calling on Bragg to 'indict himself'!" Dinesh D'Souza tweeted. 


Bragg and his office took intense backlash from a number of high-profile Republicans and observers over the leaked indictment details.

"Bragg is about to face the music. Should he be investigated for prosecutorial misconduct??" Vernon Jones tweeted.

"If the Democrats didn’t have double standards… they wouldn’t have any standards at all," former Trump attorney Jenna Ellis tweeted.

Only time will tell what happens as a result of what is an obvious political witch hunt against the former president, but knowing Trump, he most certainly will continue to fight it at every turn.
