A former U.S. attorney general under President Donald Trump predicted Trump’s indictment on paying hush money to a porn star will be dismissed because it’s “flimsy.”
Appearing on Newsmax on Saturday, former Trump administration acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker called District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s case overtly political.
So many other legal authorities, Whitaker said, “have looked and they’ve churned and they’ve grinded on all this the evidence, and nobody could put it together, and somehow magically Alvin Bragg found the key to unlock this case.”

He labeled Bragg’s case “complete fiction.”
“This idea that you can somehow take these misdemeanor charges — that are arguably even have happened, based on the evidence that we know — and then turn them into a felony, suspend the statute of limitations, jump over all these hoops and somehow, you know, suggest that Donald Trump is going to spend the rest of his life in prison: I think it’s just a fantastical tale,” Whitaker added.
“But again this satisfies the left. They were so happy and celebrating this no matter all of the challenges, no matter all of the holes in this case, because again, they have been trying to get Trump ever since he came down the escalator and ultimately won the presidency in 2016.”
“I think this case is going to be dismissed, ultimately, probably by the end of this year, because it is so flimsy and is just not a legitimate case,” Whitaker continued.

He noted that Bragg himself couldn’t even tell reporters exactly what law Trump supposedly violated.
“The election law case is a complete flimsy basis” for turning an alleged misdemeanor into a felony,” Whitaker continued.
“The feds looked at this, including when I was acting attorney general. The case just isn’t there and there’s no New York state election violation because New York law doesn’t regulate presidential elections.”
“The case is going to fail,” he predicted, “ and the question is a matter of when, not if.”
“The bias is so obvious in this case,” Whitaker added. “Everybody sees this for what it is: It’s complete political weaponization of our justice system, and it’s not a fair process.”
“Our country cannot stand — our Founding Fathers would not recognize what is happening right now in the United States of America,” he added. “And the Republic is under serious duress, and until we get a system that’s fair, that the American people believe in, that we don’t have this two-tiered system of justice that the left is using to go after their political opponents, you know, we’re going to be in this serious, stressful situation as a country.”

“We’re going to need statesman and stateswomen to step up and speak out against this weaponization, or it is a zero-sum game and we are going to be worse off as a country and we’re going to be under serious challenges for a long time to come.”
