An ongoing criminal investigation into former President Trump will almost certainly be taken up by a Soros-funded prosecutor.
With ballots still being counted, former federal prosecutor Alvin Bragg leads the Democratic primary race for Manhattan, New York district attorney, which is tantamount to winning the seat in overwhelmingly Democratic Manhattan.
Bragg was backed by the “Color of Change” PAC, which was funded by a $1 million donation from Soros weeks before the election.
“Bragg, should he go on to win the general election in November, would become the first Black Manhattan district attorney and take over a high-profile investigation of former President Donald Trump’s businesses, as well as other major inquiries,” POLITICO notes.
The current Manhattan District Attorney, liberal activist Cyrus Vance, gave Trump’s attorneys until Monday to explain why he should not criminally charge the Trump Organization, Trump business executive, and possibly Trump himself with alleged tax violations.
Vance, who chose to not run for re-election, is widely expected to announce a criminal indictment of Trump or his business before leaving office.
The job of prosecuting that case will almost certainly fall to Bragg, who campaigned for the job claiming that as an attorney in the New York state attorney general’s office he sued Trump “more than a hundred times.”
Bragg’s New York Times endorsement cited his suits against Trump in the second paragraph, noting such experience would be needed to secure a criminal indictment against Trump in the Manhattan DA’s ongoing investigation.
Bragg’s campaign and the apparent narrow win were backed by the “Color Of Change” PAC, which seeks to elect black liberals.
The group received a $1 million donation from Soros on May 14, six days after endorsing Bragg.
Soros, who has publicly vowed to stop Trump, listed his residence as New York when donating the funds and lives in a lavish Manhattan apartment.
