Trump guilty: Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg says he ‘did his job’ 

Man­hat­tan Dis­trict Attor­ney Alvin Bragg said Thurs­day he “did his job” in secur­ing guilty ver­dicts against for­mer Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump.
“Our job is to fol­low the facts with­out fear or favor, and that’s what we did here,” he said at a press con­fer­ence.

Bragg is the first pros­e­cu­tor in U.S. his­to­ry to con­vict a for­mer pres­i­dent, cap­ping off a risky year­long legal approach to a com­pli­cat­ed case. He declined to com­ment on whether his office would seek a prison sen­tence, adding the case against Trump was “ongo­ing.”
Bragg, who was in the court­room when a 12-per­son New York jury found Trump guilty of 34 felony counts, did not show any emo­tion when the ver­dict was read, accord­ing to reporters present.

“While this defen­dant may be unlike any oth­er in Amer­i­can his­to­ry, we arrived at this tri­al, and ulti­mate­ly at this ver­dict, in the same man­ner as every oth­er case that comes through the cour­t­house doors: by fol­low­ing the facts and the law with­out fear or favor,” he post­ed on X.

The ver­dict over what’s essen­tial­ly an accu­rate record­keep­ing case is an enor­mous win for Bragg. Trump, the pre­sump­tive 2024 Repub­li­can pres­i­den­tial nom­i­nee, was found guilty of fal­si­fy­ing busi­ness records in a case stem­ming from a pay­ment to silence a porn star.
