Radical Soros-backed Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg learned some bad news.
It came at the worst time possible.
Donald Trump produced one letter that reduced the criminal case against him to rubble.
Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg is trying to get around the statute of limitations on a misdemeanor charge of falsifying business records to claim it was committed in the process of concealing an illegal campaign contribution in the form of Michael Cohen paying Stormy Daniels $130,000 in October 2016.
Bragg’s case hinges on the fact that Cohen — someone who admitted to lying for Donald Trump in the past and who faced charges of lying to Congress — claimed the payment was in service of Trump’s campaign.
The fact that Bragg is trying to turn an alleged federal campaign finance violation into a state felony is already a stretch which even liberal legal analysts believe is a weak case.
But what made matters worse for Bragg is the existence of a 2018 letter from Cohen’s attorney Stephen Ryan to the Federal Election Commission (FEC) explaining that Cohen paid Daniels with his own money and was not reimbursed by Trump or his business.

“In a private transaction in 2016, before the U.S. presidential election, Mr. Cohen used his own personal funds to facilitate a payment of $130,000 to Ms. Stephanie Clifford,” Ryan’s letter read.
“Neither the Trump Organization nor the Trump campaign was a party to the transaction with Ms. Clifford, and neither reimbursed Mr. Cohen for the payment directly or indirectly,” Ryan added.
“Contrary to the allegations in the complaint, which are entirely speculative, neither Mr. Cohen nor Essential Consultants LLC made any in-kind contributions to Donald J. Trump for President, Inc., or any other presidential campaign committee,” Ryan also wrote.
Trump crowed over the existence of the letter saying it exonerated him because at the very least it shows Cohen changed his story on multiple occasions and whose word cannot be trusted.
“Wow, look what was just found—A Letter from Cohen’s Lawyer to the Federal Election Commission. This is totally exculpatory, and must end the Manhattan District Attorney’s Witch Hunt, immediately. Cohen admits that he did it himself. The D.A. should get on with prosecuting violent criminals, so people can walk down the sidewalks of New York without being murdered!” Trump posted on Truth Social.
The letter was the second half of a one-two gut punch to Bragg’s case which began with former Cohen legal advisor Robert Costello testifying to Bragg’s grand jury that Cohen told him he paid Daniels so Melania Trump would not suffer public embarrassment if the allegations went public.
Bragg is now scrambling to keep his case on track and canceled the grand jury convening for two straight days because it’s dawning on Democrats that Bragg is bringing a fatally flawed case that only serves to strengthen Trump if it does not hold up in court.
