The Democrats are once again making accusations against Donald Trump with the aim of imprisoning him, as Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg brings a case against him. However, many legal experts, analysts, and even one of Trump's staunch legal opponents find the case to be weak. John Banzhaf III, a professor emeritus at George Washington University Law School and the attorney who filed a complaint against Trump in Georgia that led to an investigation into election interference, criticized the various charges that Trump is due to face in court.

According to Banzhaf, the decision to charge Trump with 34 felonies, based on a single crime, is absurd. He pointed out that even a jury with no legal background would view this as "repetitive." Banzhaf illustrated this point by using an example of charging an individual with several crimes, such as double parking or carrying an illegal weapon, when they were only accused of a single crime, such as bank robbery. Essentially, the legal system follows the principle of one crime equating to one charge.
Ironically, despite Banzhaf's criticism of the case against Trump, he himself filed a complaint in Georgia that resulted in an investigation into election interference while that case is still ongoing. Banzhaf is concerned that the New York case against Trump could negatively impact the Georgia case. He fears that if more charges are piled on Trump in Georgia, the jury may view him as a political target, which could harm the prosecution's case.
Mike Allen, a former judge and attorney in Ohio, shared Banzhaf's opinion and suggested that the case may not even go to trial. Allen described the charges as a "mishmash" of federal and local statutes that are unlikely to hold up in court.
According to the indictment, Trump is accused of violating section 175.10 of the New York Penal Code by falsifying business records in the first degree. The indictment repeats this same charge 34 times, alleging that Trump created inaccurate business records and wrote checks between February and December 2017. However, the indictment does not provide any information about the additional crime that Trump is accused of intending to commit. District Attorney Alvin Bragg argues that the law does not require him to do so, even after Trump's appearance at a news conference.
In conclusion, this case against Donald Trump by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg is enormously weak and has no standing in the court of law. It is just another attempt by the left to destroy the former President’s reputation and a gross abuse of the legal system’s power. It is hard not to agree with legal experts and even Trump’s foes, who seem to agree that this case is ‘repetitious.’
