Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg — who is backed by Democrat megadonor George Soros — gushed over the jury that returned a guilty verdict against former President Donald Trump on Thursday.

Bragg said that the jury, which was selected from an area that voted overwhelmingly for Hillary Clinton in 2016 and Joe Biden in 2020, was “literally the cornerstone of our judicial system” and that they should be thanked for their “service.”

“We should all be thankful for the careful attention that this jury paid to the evidence and the law and their time and commitment over these past several weeks,” he claimed. “Twelve everyday New Yorkers, and of course, our alternates, heard testimony from 22 witnesses, including former and current employees of the defendant, media executives, book publishers, custodians of records, and others. They reviewed call logs, text messages and emails. They heard recordings, they saw checks and invoices, bank statements, and calendar appointments.”

He said that this type of case was the “core” of what his office does, even though numerous legal critics have said that typically his office would not prosecute this case and made an exception to do so because he was targeting Trump.

“In the 1930s, District Attorney Thomas Dewey, ushered in the era of the modern, independent, professional prosecutor,” he claimed. “For now nearly 90 years, dedicated professionals in his office have built upon that fine tradition. A major part of our practice, during that nearly 90 years, has been public integrity work, including cases involving jurists, local and state electeds, public servants, and others. I want to thank this phenomenal prosecution team embodying the finest traditions of this office professionalism, integrity, dedication, and service. They are model public servants. And I am proud and humbled to serve side by side with them.”


“The 12 everyday jurors vowed to make a decision based on the evidence and the law and the evidence and the law alone,” he claimed. “Their deliberations led them to a unanimous conclusion beyond the reasonable doubt that the defendant, Donald J. Trump, is guilty of 34 counts of falsifying business records in the first degree to conceal a scheme to corrupt the 2016 election. And while this defendant may be unlike any other in American history, we arrived at this trial and ultimately today at this verdict in the same manner as every other case that comes to the courtroom doors — by following the facts and the law and doing so without fear or favor.”
