EXCLUSIVE: Media Omits Key Information in DA Bragg Case in New York Against President Trump

This is why Americans hate the legacy Mainstream Media (MSM).  They always side with the far-left even if it means reporting total garbage. 

Big Media does it again.  Although this report is from TIME, it is most likely the talking points given to all the legacy media to push to the American people.  The MSM cannot be trusted with reporting on anything related to President Trump.  Their reporting is as if it’s created by the Deep State and is always overtly one-sided.  This has been the case for two decades but it is getting worse.

Nik Poply at TIME shared on Monday’s Bragg case in DC against President Trump.  This report is so one-sided, that it cannot be considered an unbiased report.

Here is the piece – Your Questions About Trump’s Hush-Money Trial, Answered.

Poply starts off by claiming that President Trump paid off porn star Stormy Daniels.  He shares the following about the Bragg case:

The case involves his alleged falsification of business records to cover up a hush-money payment to adult-film star Stormy Daniels ahead of the 2016 election. The trial will mark the first time in history that an ex-President is criminally prosecuted in court, and could take Trump away from the campaign trail for more than a month as he runs for a return to the White House.

Poply neglects to mention that Stormy Daniels signed a letter saying there never was an affair between her and President Trump

Poply also neglects to mention that Michael Cohen through his attorney signed a letter stating that he made a payment to Stormy himself and President Trump didn’t have anything to do with this.

As if that’s not enough, Poply at TIME shares:

Trump faces 34 felony counts in the case brought by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, who has accused Trump of doctoring financial records of his companies and orchestrating a scheme to influence the 2016 presidential election. Trump has denied all wrongdoing and accused Bragg of carrying out a politically motivated witch hunt against him…

…Prosecutors will attempt to prove that Trump is guilty of maintaining false business records with the intent to hide a $130,000 hush-money payment to Stormy Daniels, an adult-film actress who claimed she had a sexual encounter with him in 2006. The payments allegedly were made to keep Daniels from speaking publicly about the affair in the final weeks of Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign.

If convicted, Trump could face up to four years in prison for each of the 34 charges against him. While paying hush money is not always illegal, prosecutors allege that Trump reimbursed his then-lawyer Michael Cohen in a series of installment payments processed by his business, which prosecutors say were fraudulently disguised as corporate legal expenses in violation of New York law.

Under New York law, falsifying business records is usually a misdemeanor but it can become a felony when there is an “intent to defraud” that includes an intent to “commit another crime or to aid or conceal” another crime. Bragg has said that the alleged payment scheme was intended to cover up violations of New York election law, which makes it a crime to conspire to illegally promote a candidate. He also said the $130,000 payment exceeded the federal campaign contribution cap and violated state tax laws.

This is where Poply is out of his league.  As I explained below on the War Room there is no crime in this case.

Bragg never states what the crime is in this case.  Classifying payments in the wrong bucket is not a crime.  At best it is an adjusting entry.  New York law states that the statute of limitations on these actions, if somehow classified as crimes, is only two years.  The entries all took place in 2017 many years ago.

President Trump did not run his companies in 2017.  He handed over the reigns to his sons in early 2017 before any of the alleged payments were made.

Bragg claims that these entries totaling $130,000 (something no auditor would ever find in financials from 5 years ago in an audit of the financials this year) affected the 2016 election and yet they were posted in 2017.  Hmmm?  Think on this a bit.

Bragg claims that when Trump’s businesses received the 11 invoices related to these entries it was a felony.  This will be the first time in world history that a man has been charged with 11 felonies for receiving letters (in this instance invoices) in the mail.  

Bragg then claims it’s felony to post an entry in the books.  He claims President Trump made 12 entries in his books related to the invoices.  No CEO of any billion dollar entity posts any entries in the company’s books.  Most CFOs never do.  Entries are posted by entry level accountants not CEOs.  These 12 “felonies” are also totally ridiculous.

Then Bragg claims that President Trump sent 11 checks or wires related to these entries.  Again, where is the crime?

That’s Bragg’s 34 felonies.  These people are sick. 

Poply does go on to state the Michael Cohen is expected to be a witness in the case and he mentions that Cohen pleaded guilty to a number of crimes in 2018.  However, Poply neglects to mention this about Cohen:

“By his own admission, he has lied in court. He has lied to the media. And he has pleaded guilty to lying to Congress.”

This entire case is a travesty of justice.  To top it all off, the judge won’t recuse himself even though his family has received millions over the past few years from the likes of crooked Democrats Kamala Harris and Adam Schiff.

The criminals in this case are the Biden/Obama Administration, its DOJ, the judge.  People who push this garbage narrative should be ashamed of themselves.
