Turley: Bragg Seems to Be Caving to Pressure to Bring Case DOJ, His Predecessor Wouldn’t, Unsuccessful Edwards Case Was ‘Much Stronger’

On the Saturday broadcast of Fox News’ “Fox & Friends,” Jonathan Turley, a George Washington University law professor and Fox News contributor, stated that the potential legal case against former President Donald Trump is much weaker than that of John Edwards and that he believes that if Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg brings charges, it will be because Bragg bowed to public pressure.

Turley said,[T]John Edwards case, that was a much stronger case, the DOJ went all out, and they lost in the end. Because these are very difficult cases. Now, you take that, and now you have a Manhattan DA taking a case to court that the DOJ has refused to do…and that raises some obvious questions.”

He later added, “This is an allegation, not only did the Justice Department not pursue it, but Bragg’s predecessor in his office did not pursue it in court. But Bragg himself also threw a flag at the play. The only reason I think we see this case is because two prosecutors His subordinates resigned, and, in my opinion, acted really unseemly—in the case of one of them, who wrote a book about someone who was not even accused, let alone convicted. And this pressure, I think, finally found its mark with Bragg.”

Turley also stated: “We have to keep in mind that we have here a legal system designed to protect the rights of the accused. And even if he is convicted, there will be important challenges and revisions on appeal. I think we have to be careful not to assume, in the most sensational way, that the rule of law She’s dead. This isn’t the first DA to succumb to public pressure to bring a criminal charge.”
