Trump Accuses Manhattan District Attorney of Using Michael Cohen to Derail 2024 Run


The former president of the United States, Donald Trump, has accused Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg of targeting him as part of a Democratic campaign to thwart his future 2024 candidacy by utilizing the “false and utterly discredited testimony” of his former personal attorney, Michael Cohen. Trump has urged protests and said that Bragg’s office is trying to “incredibly persecute, prosecute, and indict” him using Cohen’s testimony.

The payments Donald Trump made to porn star Stormy Daniels during his 2016 campaign are what sparked the criminal probe. The purpose of the payments is still unknown, but Trump is certain that the inquiry is politically motivated. In an effort to keep him from running again in 2024, he alleges that President Joseph Biden “packed” the district attorney’s office with Department of Justice personnel.

Several well-known Republican politicians have defended Trump in reaction to these claims. Senator Lindsey Graham asked for a probe into the matter, stating that this was a blatant indication that the Democratic party was attempting to use the legal system as a vehicle for political retaliation. Trump has received backing from other Republicans who believe that he is only being targeted because he ran against Biden in 2020 and might do so again in 2024.

Although it’s still uncertain how this case will turn out, one thing is certain: Donald Trump won’t give up easily. He feels that Democrats are unfairly picking on him, and he will go to any lengths to shield himself from any negative legal repercussions that may result from this inquiry. Although it is unlikely that he will be able to completely stop this probe, he might be able to delay it or weaken its findings just enough to not negatively impact his prospects of running again in 2024. Up until then, we can anticipate more heated exchanges between the two sides as they spar over this incredibly contentious subject.
