Lawsuits Target Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg for Withholding Trump Prosecution Records


Conservative think tank alleges coordination between Bragg, DOJ, White House, and Democrat lawmakers.

Failure to Comply with FOIL Requests Leads to Legal Action

Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg is now facing two lawsuits for his refusal to release records related to his office’s potential communication with the Justice Department, White House, and Democratic lawmakers concerning the prosecution of former President Donald Trump.

The lawsuits, filed by the Heritage Foundation, a prominent conservative think tank based in Washington, D.C., assert suspicions of coordination and aim to shed light on the investigations launched by multiple House committees into Bragg’s conduct.

In March, Bragg indicted Trump on 34 felony counts of falsifying business records in the first degree following an extensive investigation into hush-money payments made during the 2016 presidential campaign. The charges assert that Trump intentionally falsified New York business records to hide damaging information and unlawful activities from voters before and after the election.

Demands for Transparency and Compliance

The lawsuits filed by the Heritage Foundation argue that the lack of transparency surrounding Bragg’s alleged coordination with various entities raises concerns about the potential manipulation of the criminal justice system for political purposes. The group seeks answers and calls for the release of requested documents under the New York Freedom of Information Law.

Additionally, they demand that Bragg and his team provide the requested records and refrain from seeking costs and fees for the specific request at hand.

Subheading 4: Stonewalling and Allegations of Dual Standards

Heritage asserts that Bragg and his team have largely stonewalled their requests for communications between the suspected parties, despite their right to access such information under New York’s FOIL laws.

Mike Howell, director of Heritage’s Oversight Project, criticizes the double standard of justice apparent in this situation, highlighting the irony of Bragg pursuing allegations against Trump’s document retention while failing to comply with information laws himself. The lawsuits aim to address this inconsistency and hold Bragg accountable for his actions.

Hypocrisy Unveiled and Taxpayer Dollars Wasted

Howell strongly criticizes Bragg, accusing him of hypocrisy and wasting New York taxpayers’ dollars by defending his actions and obstructing the release of documents.

Howell emphasizes that Bragg’s inability to maintain his own records raises questions about his fitness for office and his adherence to the information laws he is obliged to follow. The lawsuits seek to expose Bragg’s alleged misconduct and uncover the truth behind the withheld records.
