The New York grand jury that has been hearing from witnesses in the case against former President Donald J. Trump has reportedly already called it a week in the latest sign of trouble for Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s abusive prosecution of Trump over an alleged “hush money” payment to pornographic movie queen Stormy Daniels.
On Tuesday, CNN reported that the grand jury will not convene on Wednesday, citing “two court sources familiar with proceedings,” and that the jurors will spend Thursday hearing an unrelated case, the second consecutive week that it will not meet for the same two days and with Friday typically being a day off, it means that any potential indictments of the 2024 Republican Party frontrunner won’t come down until at least next week if they come down at all.
The news comes as the Big Apple’s top prosecutor is facing intense media and political scrutiny, an investigation by congressional Republicans, as well as scorching criticism from Trump with the target of Bragg’s witch hunt maintaining that he is innocent while slashing away at the George Soros-backed district attorney on a near-daily basis on his Truth Social platform, at his recent campaign rally in Waco, Texas and in media interviews as the ex-POTUS seeks to draw attention to the injustice of his persecution, one of several separate prongs that are currently in process.
NBC News also reported that the grand jury will not meet on Wednesday, a regularly scheduled day for the Trump case, “according to three sources familiar with the matter,” confirming that the suspense will be further prolonged for the haters who have been anxiously awaiting the former president’s charging and potential arrest which, while heavily hyped by the media and the usual suspects on Resistance Twitter, failed to materialize as advertised.
The latest delay in what had been hyped as virtually a slam dunk comes after constitutional law expert Alan Dershowitz suggested that Bragg could be playing with fire – and perhaps his license to practice law – if he went ahead with his prosecution by putting star witness Michael Cohen, a convicted felon and discredited “serial liar” on the stand to testify against Trump.

“He has proved that the main witness is gonna be a perjuring liar on the witness stand, and that puts the district attorney in a terrible position,” the former Harvard Law professor said. “If he uses Cohen as a witness, he could actually lose his bar license. It’s unethical to put a witness on the stand who you know is lying and he has to know that Cohen will be lying.”
Last week, Trump drew heavy fire for some of his social media remarks including a suggestion that there could be “death & destruction” if he was criminally charged as well as a since-deleted Truth Social post in which he was brandishing a baseball bat next to a picture of Bragg, leading hysterics to claim that the image constituted a threat to the DA’s safety. But to hear the former and perhaps future president tell it, it was all just an innocent misunderstanding as he told Fox News host Sean Hannity.

Following his big rally in Waco where he delivered a rousing speech to an adoring crowd of supporters, the resilient Trump was at ease, chatting with the press onboard Trump Force One where he opined that Bragg has already all but run up the white flag on his troubled political maneuver.
“I think they’ve already dropped the case,” Trump told reporters on his private jet, according to Axios. “It’s a fake case. Some fake cases, they have absolutely nothing.”
“How do you indict an innocent man, a former very successful President who is now running and leading in the polls, that every legal scholar, and virtually every ‘hater,’ says, ‘Don’t do it, there is no case here?’ This is what happens in Third World countries which sadly, the USA is rapidly becoming!” Trump wrote on Truth Social on Tuesday.
In its report on the abbreviated week for Bragg’s high-stakes case, CNN does note that the grand jury’s proceedings are secret and that it could always be called back in by the prosecutors.
