Boom! Trump’s Defense Attorney CRIPPLES Alvin Bragg’s Entire Case

Must Read

During the cross-examination of the prosecution’s first witness, former National Enquirer publisher David Pecker, defense attorney Emil Bove aimed to raise doubts about the core arguments in Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s case against former President Donald Trump. Bove highlighted the tabloid’s practice of purchasing stories to prevent their release, a common tactic in what has been referred to as “checkbook journalism.”

By pointing out that this practice was not unusual, Bove sought to portray the deal with former playboy model Karen McDougal as standard procedure rather than part of an illegal conspiracy to influence the 2016 election. He emphasized other instances where Pecker’s magazine suppressed damaging stories for public figures like Rahm Emanuel, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and others, suggesting that such actions were not out of the ordinary.

Additionally, it was stressed that Pecker’s association with Trump began before the 2016 election. Bove highlighted that for more than ten years, Pecker had been alerting Trump to any potential negative media coverage, with the first instance occurring in 1998, as confirmed by Pecker himself. Pecker acknowledged that he published articles about Trump because it was advantageous for his business. Their professional connection was described as “mutually beneficial,” as Trump would reciprocate by providing Pecker with insights on “The Apprentice,” such as ratings and participant access.

“Before this investigation started, you had not heard the phrase ‘catch and kill,’ correct?” Bove asked.

Prosecutor Joshua Steinglass previously utilized his inquiries to meticulously examine the intricacies of Pecker’s agreement to acquire the McDougal story, presenting a range of contracts and invoices to the jury. Bragg’s legal team also inquired of Pecker whether Trump’s primary concern was directed towards his campaign or his family, as well as whether Pecker sought advice from an election law attorney regarding the matter. Pecker commenced his testimony on Tuesday, which happened to be a shorter trial day due to the observance of Passover. Opening statements from both sides were presented on Monday.
