Live updates on Trump’s indictment: Cohen would be a key witness in the trial, attorney says

Giuliani said that Trump’s indictment was “one of the worst days of American legal history.”

Giuliani said that “you would have to be a fool to not realize it’s being used completely for political purposes,” NBC News reported on Saturday night at the Blue Lives Matter NYC Archangel Gala in Staten Island.

He also called Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg disgraceful and predicted that the case will be a disgrace for the office.

Giuliani stated that “we have never indicted an Ex-President because we’re no banana republic.”

Trump supporters gather outside Trump’s Florida golf club ahead of his arraignment next Wednesday. Trump thanked his supporters on Saturday for their “tremendous” support since his indictment.

The former president stated on social media that he believes that federal law enforcement and Justice Department have been weaponized.

“We now live in a THIRD WORLD COUNTRY but we will come back and MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!” He wrote.

The former president’s motorcade left his golf club at approximately 4:40 p.m. Trump’s vehicle came to a halt as more than two dozen supporters shouted, “We love Trump!”

Trump didn’t roll down his window nor get out of the car. However, he was briefly captured by cameras giving what appeared like a thumbs-up and wave.

Within seconds, the car was gone.

News organizations ask Judge Juan Merchan for an immediate rescind of the Trump indictment. They also want cameras to be allowed in the courtroom.

“Because there is overwhelming public interest in the contents, and because it serves no valid purpose to keep the indictment sealed pending arraignment,” we respectfully request that the indictment be unsealed immediately. “Any delay only allows speculation about indictment content to proliferate,” wrote a law firm representing the media alliance.

The coalition also petitioned Merchan to allow audio-visual access to Tuesday’s arraignment.

Merchan will preside at Tuesday’s arraignment, and is likely to supervise any subsequent trials.


Former Manhattan assistant DA claims that New York’s legal system makes it difficult for any trial to be held.Christina Zhao

Trump’s case wouldn’t be tried until next year due to the New York legal system, Marc Agnifilo (an ex-assistant district attorney in Manhattan) suggested in an interview with MSNBC.

“One of the best features about New York state law is that you can have meaningful motions against grand jury proceedings. Federal court doesn’t have that,” Agnifilo, who was a DA’s Office employee from 1990 to 1994, said.

Trump’s lawyer can argue before Judge Juan Merchan, who is expected to preside over the former President’s arraignment Tuesday. Agnifilo stated that the evidence presented by the prosecution to the grand jury was legally insufficient and should be dismissed.

“The motion practice in state courts is a little more complex, a little more important, and it has a longer timeline of motions. He said that he expected the trial to take place in about a year. “A year is probably a safe estimate in terms of time. Federal cases are often tried sooner than that, sometimes six or eight months.

DeSantis claims that Bragg ‘weaponized the law for political purposes’Dasha Burns Abigail Brooks, Jillian Gaier

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, a possible 2024 Republican presidential candidate took aim at Alvin Bragg, Manhattan District Attorney, at the Pennsylvania GOP Leadership Conference.

DeSantis stated that his entire platform for election was to reduce felonies to misdemeanors. “Now he turns around, purely political, and indicts an ex-president on misdemeanor offenses they’re trying to convert into felonies.

“That’s when it becomes clear that the law is being used for political ends.”

Bragg, a Democrat, succeeded Cyrus Vance Jr. in the office of Manhattan district attorney in 2021. This was after a campaign that promised to change the culture and increase trust in the criminal justice system, as well as improve law enforcement.

Bragg stated in a memo that he would not prosecute certain misdemeanor offenses because “over-incarceration[has]not made Manhattan safer.”

Although DeSantis has not yet launched a bid for 2024 GOP nomination in his name, he is widely considered to be the most likely alternative to Trump. Since his indictment, many of the former president’s potential or declared rivals have come to his defense.

Stormy Daniels declares Trump ‘no longer untouchable.’Jillian Gaier, Sean Nevin

Stormy Daniels, a star of adult film, called Trump’s indictment a “vindication” and stated that the former president is “no more untouchable.”

“A person in power cannot be exempted from the law. Daniels stated that no matter your job title or bank account, you are held responsible for what you have said and done. Justice is served. Because of safety concerns, she gave the interview in an undisclosed place.

She stated that no matter what the outcome, violence will continue and there will be death and injuries. There’s a lot of potential for good from this. However, it will also bring a lot of negative things.”

Jeb Bush: Trump’s indictment is very political. Former Florida Governor. Jeb Bush, son of former President George H.W. Bush, the son of former President George H.W. Bush, criticized Saturday’s grand jury indictment calling it “very politically motivated”.

“[Manhattan District Attorney Alvin] Bush tweeted that Bragg’s predecessor did not take up the case. “The Justice Department did not take up the case. Bragg initially said that he would not accept the case. This is a very political issue, not a matter justice. Let the voters be the jury in this case.

Trump and Bush were rivals in 2016 GOP presidential primaries, during which Trump often mocked Trump’s former governor for being “low-energy”. Bush claimed he didn’t vote for Trump in 2016 or 2020.

New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu claims that Trump’s indictment will benefit him in 2024Jillian Gier and Julia Jester

New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu stated that he believes Trump’s indictment will increase his chances of winning the GOP nomination for 2024.

Sununu, a Republican said that “it only helps him,” in an interview on HBO’s “Real Time With Bill Maher,” which aired on Friday night. He shouldn’t be the nomination. He won’t win in ’24 but it builds empathy, sympathy, if that’s what you want. It strengthens his base.”

Sununu, who is currently weighing his own potential White House bids, predicted that Trump would lose the Republican nomination next January.

However, he has committed to supporting the eventual GOP nomination. He said, “Look, I’m an ever-religious Republican.”
