Huge Delay In Trump Case AGAIN
The Manhattan District Attorney’s Office is facing criticism from Republicans over their handling of the Donald Trump grand jury case. The jurors have been tasked with considering whether Trump broke the law when his attorney Michael Cohen gave $130,000 to porn star Stormy Daniels to keep quiet about claims she had slept with Trump in 2016, but have now been given a month–long break from hearing evidence.
The decision has been interpreted as a sign that the prosecution is politically motivated, with Republicans questioning the lack of transparency and accusing the DA of trying to interfere in the upcoming election.
Speaking to DailyMail.com in Iowa, former Vice President Mike Pence said the latest delay is further proof that the prosecution is politically motivated.
‘I expressed concern about what appeared to be a political prosecution taking place in New York and I continue to hope that the Manhattan DA will think better about it,’ he said.
‘The reality is that millions of Americans believe that we have a two–tiered system of justice in this country. One that applies to Democrats and one that applies to Republicans.’
Senator Rick Scott echoed Pence’s comments, telling DailyMail.com that ‘the way it comes across is very political. Like this guy is a very political guy.’
Trump’s team is confident that the grand jury’s break in hearing evidence is the ‘first step‘ in the process of the case being dropped, and Trump himself has called it a ‘sick witch hunt‘ and ‘election interference through prosecutors‘.
His attorney Joe Tacopina said ‘everyone, from the left to the right in the middle, are saying this case should not be brought. It should not because there is absolutely no crime.’
The Manhattan DA‘s Office has not commented on the issue, but recent events have left Republicans concerned. With the jury taking a two–week ‘scheduled hiatus‘, there are fears that the investigation is being used as a political tool to damage Trump’s reputation ahead of the election.
The Republican Party has accused the DA of pursuing a case that will never lead to a conviction, with Pence calling it a ‘greatest form of injustice‘ and Scott slamming the lack of good information coming from the office.
BREAKING: The Manhattan grand jury that’s examining the Trump case is scheduled to take nearly a one month break, meaning that an indictment likely won’t come out until late April unless they change the schedule of the jury.
Republicans will likely claim that Bragg had second…
