Trump Claims Biden Influenced Manhattan D.A.'s Prosecution

Former President Donald Trump has accused President Joe Biden and his administration of influencing the criminal prosecution led by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, Newsbusters reported.

Trump asserts that Biden's affiliations and actions suggest a coordinated effort to prosecute him, supported by various connections and events.

Repeated fact-checks have been conducted on Trump’s claim regarding Biden's involvement. CNN's Daniel Dale has prominently disputed Trump’s accusation.

Biden’s Alleged Connections to the Case

Margot Cleveland, a legal analyst, authored an article titled "Joe Biden’s Fingerprints Are All Over The Criminal Prosecutions Of Donald Trump." The piece explores the purported ties between Biden and the Manhattan D.A.’s office.

Matthew Colangelo, who previously held a significant position in Biden's Justice Department, joined Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg's prosecutorial team. This connection has fueled speculation about Biden's influence.

The relationship between the Manhattan D.A.’s office and Biden's team reportedly began in mid-February 2021. This timeline has raised questions about potential political motivations.

The Role of Paul, Weiss Firm in the Investigation

Cyrus Vance, Bragg's predecessor, enlisted Mark Pomerantz as a special assistant district attorney specifically for the Trump investigation. This move was considered highly unusual.

Pomerantz had been informally assisting with the case months before officially joining the team. His official appointment was followed by the involvement of Elyssa Abuhoff and Caroline Williamson from Paul, Weiss, a law firm known for its support of Biden.

Paul, Weiss hosted a $2,800-per-plate fundraiser for Biden’s campaign and continued to support his re-election efforts. This connection has added another layer to the allegations.

Political Pressure and Investigation Development

Brad Karp, chair of Paul, Weiss, raised significant funds for Biden and attended a state dinner hosted by the president. Karp's statements about supporting Biden further intertwined the firm's actions with the investigation. Pomerantz claimed in early 2022 that Bragg had decided to suspend the Trump investigation.

This statement triggered political pressure and ultimately led to Colangelo's hiring. Colangelo's subsequent involvement culminated in Donald Trump's indictment and conviction, aligning with the timeline and events highlighted by critics of Biden's alleged influence.

Biden’s connections to Paul, Weiss, and the financial support provided by the firm have added to the perception of a coordinated effort. The firm's involvement in the Trump investigation has not gone unnoticed by observers and analysts.

The overlapping timelines and affiliations between Biden’s team, the Manhattan D.A.’s office, and Paul Weiss paint a complex picture. These relationships have been at the heart of the controversy surrounding Donald Trump's prosecution. In summary, Trump's claims about Biden's involvement in his prosecution are built on a series of connections and events. While some dispute these allegations, the detailed affiliations and actions suggest a deeper narrative.
