President Donald Trump’s attorney, Joe Tacopina, reassured the public that he thinks Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s political probe into Trump will fall apart before a jury is selected, according to CNBC.

Tacopina predicted the demise of Bragg’s case against President Trump while speaking on NBC’s “Today” program Wednesday morning. Tacopina claimed that the case is likely to “fall on its merits on legal challenges,” according to CNBC.

Tacopina maintained that after “seeing that indictment and knowing what the law is regarding federal election campaigns, I don’t think we’re getting close to a jury,” in response to the question of whether President Trump could receive a “fair jury” in Manhattan, per CNBC.

“If we get to a jury, I think any person on the right or politically opposed to Trump or in favor of him is going to see this for what it is: It’s a weaponization of the legal system, and it’s something this country has never seen before and hopefully will never do again,” The Trump attorney continued.

Tacopina’s optimistic prognostications coincide with President Trump’s Tuesday court appearance where he entered a not guilty to 34 counts of felony charges involving “falsifying” business records.

On Tuesday, the 34 felony counts against the 45th president were detailed in the indictment list. According to the New York Post, Tacopina claimed it was “a relief” to see the “very vanilla” published indictment list.

“There’s no crime at all — at all,” Tacopina told “CBS Mornings” on Wednesday, per the outlet. “I mean, this is not a game. You’re charging the president of the United States with crimes, crimes that will never be sustained in a court of law because they don’t exist.”

Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, a vocal opponent of President Trump, drew attention to the weak nature of Bragg’s case against the president and said the accusations were an “overreach,” as reported by Fox News.

“I believe President Trump’s character and conduct make him unfit for office. Even so, I believe the New York prosecutor has stretched to reach felony criminal charges in order to fit a political agenda,” the senator said Tuesday.

Romney continued by stating that “The prosecutor’s overreach sets a dangerous precedent for criminalizing political opponents and damages the public’s faith in our justice system.”
