Donald Trump made a surprise call that left Alvin Bragg’s head spinning

May 29, 2024

Donald Trump knows how to keep his opponents off guard.

What worked in politics and business can also pay dividends in the courtroom.

And Donald Trump made a surprise call that left Alvin Bragg’s head spinning.

Donald Trump explains why he didn’t testify in New York show trial

Trump’s defense team rested after calling only two witnesses.

One of them wasn’t Donald Trump.

That answered the big question hanging over the trial, which was if Trump – a master showman – would take the dramatic step of taking the witness stand in his own defense.

But at the end of the day, Trump listened to his lawyers.

And his lawyers thought there was no purpose to spend time testifying.

In an interview with WABC radio, Trump fleshed out the decision not to testify.

Trump explained that biased Democrat Judge Juan Merchan ruled that Bragg and his prosecutors could ask Trump anything they wanted.

That meant embarrassing questions about the judgments E. Jean Carroll won in her show trials for sexual assault and defamation.

Bragg’s prosecutors could also ask Trump about Letitia James’ ridiculous civil fraud lawsuit.

“He (New York Justice Juan Merchan) made rulings that makes it very difficult to testify,” Trump said.

Trump said that the judge’s ruling put no subject off limits, and prosecutors could prejudice the jury with all sorts of gothca questions about Democrats winning bogus verdicts against Trump in rigged trials to make him look like a bad guy.

“Anything I did, anything I did in the past, they can bring everything up, and you know what, I’ve had a great past – but anything,” Trump added.

Bragg didn’t have any evidence of a crime on Trump’s part, which is why Trump faced made-up criminal charges.

“The other reason is because they have no case. In other words, why would – why testify when they have no case?” Trump concluded.

The only chance of conviction is Bragg convincing the Democrats’ stacked jury that Trump must be guilty of something since he’s supposedly a bad guy.

Trump testifying would only feed that false perception as the judge – who’s in the tank for the prosecution – pulled every trick in the book to rig the trial to result in a guilty verdict.

Trump had said he would testify

Before this kangaroo court started, Trump told reporters that he “would testify, absolutely.”

“I mean, all I can do is tell the truth. And the truth is that there’s no case, they have no case,” Trump added.

Reporters tried to goad Trump into testifying by making it seem like he was a coward for not doing so.

While reporters wanted to set Trump up for Bragg by goading him into taking the witness stand, the truth is the press wanted Trump to testify for another reason.

Trump taking the witness stand in his own defense would mean boffo ratings for cable news.

And that speaks to another essential truth.

For as much as the liberal media hates Donald Trump, media outlets depend on the ratings and attention Trump brings for survival.
