Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg is suddenly singing a different tune now that it involves former President Trump.
In a press conference held shortly after Trump’s arraignment on Tuesday afternoon, Bragg stated, “These are felony crimes in New York state, no matter who you are. We cannot and will not normalize serious criminal conduct.”
But hold on just a minute… Let’s not forget that this is the same guy who downgraded a whopping 52% of Manhattan’s felony charges to misdemeanors since taking office.
And what happened to all those criminals he let out of prison??? Oh, just a little thing called recidivism! Many of them went on to commit further crimes.
The sheer hypocrisy of Bragg’s statement is absolutely outrageous. It’s clear that he only cares about enforcing the law when it’s politically convenient for him. Shameful.
