If Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg is found to be the source of leaks from the grand jury indictment against President Donald Trump, he could be charged with a felony and potentially face prison time.
In the state of New York, leaking grand jury documents is a felony.
🚨 POLL: Is Trump guilty or innocent?
Guilty👈 or 👉Innocent
Famed Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz published an opinion piece arguing this exact point.
There are currently pieces of the indictment, but not the full document, that have been leaked to the media.
Rumors about 30 counts against Trump are circulating in the liberal media.
“It is likely that a serious felony has been committed right under District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s nose, and he is not investigating it. Under New York law, it is a felony to leak confidential grand jury information, such as whether the jurors voted to indict. The protection of secrecy is as applicable to President Trump as it is to anyone else,” Dershowitz wrote.
“The most likely, though uncertain, scenario is that a person in Mr. Bragg’s office or a grand juror unlawfully leaked the sealed information,” he wrote.
During an appearance on CNN, President Trump’s attorney Joe Tacopina says he is filing a motion to dismiss charges against Trump and believes there’s a “good chance” it will succeed.
“We will take the indictment,” he explained. “We will dissect it. The team will look at every, every potential issue that we will be able to challenge, and we will challenge.”
“And of course, I very much anticipate a motion to dismiss coming because there’s no law that fits this,” Trump’s attorney Joe Tacopina said.
“And you have a situation where, you know, the federal government, the Department of Justice, turned this matter down,” Tacopina continued on CNN’s “State of the Union.”
“The FEC, which governs federal election laws, said there’s no violation here,” he added. “Yet somehow a state prosecutor has taken a misdemeanor and tried cobble together to make it a felony by alleging a violation of federal campaign violations. And the FEC said that doesn’t exist.”

“Whether you send the right or the left or you’re a supporter or detractor of Donald Trump, this should really bother you,” Tacopina said.
“This should really shake the core of what we believe our justice system should be about. It should not be weaponized to go after political opponents.”
In the meantime, as Trump’s lawyer fights back, it’s very easy to see that the Democrat-run criminal indictment of Trump is quickly backfiring in a massive way.
First, Trump has reportedly fundraised over a staggering $4 million dollars in 24 hours. Over 25% of donations cam from “first-time donors,” meaning the Trump campaign is vastly expanding its favorability.
Second, the president of Judicial Watch, Tom Fitton, says the weaponization of the justice system will undoubtedly lead to the indictment of President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter.
“All bets are off,” Fitton explained. “You can expect grand jury indictments of leftist politicians like Biden, Pelosi and Schumer as surely as night follows day.”

Third, the indictment has instantly triggered the presence of massive protests at Mar-a-Lago and across the country. As polls show, Americans overwhelmingly support Trump.
Many Americans are frustrated with the corrupt and highly political criminal investigation in New York. This is causing more Americans to take action.
Fourth, the indictment against Trump does absolutely nothing to stop him from being re-elected in 2016. Legal experts confirmed that the most likely outcome of the criminal charges against Trump will be a fine.
Trump will successfully fight the indictment, one way or another, and very likely retake the White House. Americans will remain energized as the trial is expected to last through the last months of the election.
