Former President Donald Trump was indicted in December 2022 on 34 counts of falsifying business records. However, questions have been raised about the strength of the case against him, with critics arguing that there is no underlying crime and that the statute of limitations may have expired.
There are also concerns about whether Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg had jurisdiction to bring the case.
Furthermore, two prosecutors on Bragg’s team resigned in February 2022, leading some to question the strength of the case. The prosecutors, Carey R. Dunne and Mark F. Pomerantz, reportedly resigned after Bragg indicated that he had doubts about moving forward with a case against Trump.
The resignations came after the investigation appeared to be gaining momentum, and the prosecutors had postponed plans to question at least one witness before the grand jury.
Despite these concerns, Trump has pleaded not guilty to the charges against him. Some observers have suggested that the indictment is politically motivated and that Bragg is targeting Trump for partisan reasons.
However, supporters of the indictment argue that it is an important step in holding Trump accountable for his actions while in office.
