Manhattan District Attorney Prague Allegedly Tied to George Soros, Prepares to Indict Top Republican Presidential Candidate for “Alleged Silent Money Payments Made by Trump as Presidential Candidate in 2016” to Stormy Daniels, Fox News mentioned.
In a series of tweets, Turley said he was “very critical of this case,” which he called “flawed.”
… Bragg might be able to anticipate very excited New York judges and juries. However, the novelty and questions in this case will present difficult appeal cases for the prosecution.

“This is a flawed case if it rests on a state charge effectively prosecuting a federal election violation,” Turley wrote. The Department of Justice dismissed this federal case. There are also questions related to the statute of limitations.
Bragg might be able to anticipate very enthusiastic judges and juries in New York. However, the novelty and questions in this case will present challenging appeal issues for the prosecution.
Turley also called on Trump to “eavesdrop on any inflammatory speech.”

in an opinion article published In the hill Saturday, Turley wrote that the case was “legally pathetic” and highlighted cases with the “most discussed” potential charge in the case.
While we still don’t know the state’s specific charges in the expected indictment, the most discussed fall under Section 175 for falsifying business records, based on the allegation that Trump used legal expenses to conceal alleged silence payments that were supposedly used in violation of federal election laws. While some legal experts have insisted that this concealment is clearly a criminal matter for which they should be charged, they have clearly remained silent when Hillary Clinton Face a claim not unlike campaign finance.
The charge for Section 175 is usually a misdemeanor. The only way to turn it into a Class E felony. Requires (a) prove that “intent to defraud includes intent to commit, assist in the commission of, or cover up another crime.” This other crime appears to be federal election violations that the Justice Department previously refused to charge.
He added that the Prague office could not prosecute the charge as a misdemeanor because the statute of limitations is two years. He had to pursue a felony.
