Amid the start of President Donald Trump’s now-infamous “hush money” trial in a Manhattan Criminal Court, disturbing allegations have emerged that paint a picture of District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s possible financial boons for prosecuting the 45th president.

According to a report from Newsweek, based on campaign finance data, Bragg has raised more than $800,000 since indicting the 45th president in 2023. If he is not reelected in 2025, his term as DA in Manhattan will end in 2026.

The outlet stated that the money was raised between March 2023 and the last reporting date of January 2024.

Jury selection began on Monday during the first day of the trial in New York, which is expected to run for several weeks. As reported by RSBN, Trump told the press outside the courtroom that the trial was an “ASSAULT on America” and argued that there “IS NO CASE.”

Trump has been charged with 34 felony counts in the criminal case, which is centered on allegations of “hush money” payments that were issued to ex-lawyer Michael Cohen, who then allegedly reimbursed the now-infamous porn actress Stormy Daniels.

DA Bragg’s decision to go after Trump is seen by many to be highly politically motivated. Ohio Senator J.D. Vance (R) noted on X, “What Alvin Bragg is doing to President Trump is a disgrace to the rule of law and the opposite of Justice. It’s also election interference.” Other America First allies came to Trump’s defense as well.

His comments were in response to reporting from Greg Price of the State Freedom Caucus Network, which noted that DA Bragg in 2022 “reduced 52% of all felony charges to a misdemeanor.”

He added, “In 2023, he then elevated a misdemeanor to a felony that both the DOJ and his predecessor refused to go after so he could indict the Republican nominee for president. Today, Donald Trump will be in court for it because America is currently making Putin’s Russia look like a free country.”
