The Manhattan district attorney, who recently announced his intention to arrest former US President Donald Trump, received 1 million dollars from the oligarch during his campaign.
Alvin Bragg was elected in November 2021 with the backing of leftist billionaire George Soros, who donated 1 million dollars to the Color of Change PAC, which spent the money on Bragg’s campaign. Color of Change PAC is a leftist group that labels itself the largest online racial justice organisation in the United States.
Recently, the former US President announced that, based on leaked information from Bragg’s office, he would be arrested on Tuesday. “Now illegal leaks from a corrupt and highly political Manhattan District Attorney’s office … indicate, with no crime being able to be proven .. leading Republican candidate and former President of the United States of America, will be arrested on Tuesday of next week,” said a statement issued by Trump’s office. Trump is reportedly wanted for allegedly paying porn star Stormy Daniels hush money – to the tune of USD 130,000 – in campaign funds during the 2016 presidential campaign.
Since his election, the Soros-funded district attorney has received harsh criticism, as he is seen by many as soft on criminals. With his sweeping changes, DA Bragg has encouraged prosecutors not to prosecute armed robbery cases, instead charging suspects only with theft. The penalty can therefore be up to one year in prison for such an offence.
There was also a case in which Bragg allegedly offered a plea bargain to an alleged anti-Semitic attacker accused of a hate crime.
George Soros’s loyal foot soldier believes that imprisonment should only be a last resort, despite the surge in the number of violent crimes committed on the streets of New York City by repeat offenders released early from prison. In light of this, it’s no wonder that the huge metropolis has recently become increasingly chaotic, with people no longer feeling safe even in the very upscale Upper East Side prescints.
