Joe Tacopina is the lawyer representing former President Trump and he will announce a significant development in response to Alvin Bragg, Manhattan DA,’s “politically motivated indictment” against Trump.
Particularly, it was reported by the Washington Post that Tacopina had planned to file a motion for the dismissal of all Trump charges on Sunday.
Joe Tacopina, a CNN interviewer, stated that his legal team would examine the indictment thoroughly, looking into every issue that could be challenged.
“We will bring the indictment. It will be dissected. We will examine every issue we can and challenge those issues. Tacopina stated that she expects a motion for dismissal to be filed because no law matches this situation.
The indictment against Trump is still sealed until Tuesday’s arraignment hearing. Tacopina also expressed confidence in the impartiality of the judge and didn’t see any evidence of bias.
Tacopina said, “And you have a case where, you know the federal government, and the Department of Justice turned this matter down.” The FEC, which oversees federal election laws, stated that there is no violation. A state prosecutor took a misdemeanor as a basis for trying to make it a crime by claiming that there was a violation of federal election violations. The FEC denied that such a violation exists.
He said, “This should shake up the core of what our justice system should stand for.” It shouldn’t be used to pursue political opponents.”
Experts from both sides have criticized Trump’s case.
Jonathan Turley, a constitutional scholar, said Bragg’s case would be dismissed easily outside of New York. He added that while it might be politically popular for him, the case is “legally deplorable.”
He said that Bragg was trying to manipulate state laws to prosecute a federal case against Trump, long rejected by the Justice Department. It concerns Trump’s payment of “hush money” to Stormy Daniels.
In an interview with Newsweek last year, Alan Dershowitz, a Harvard Law professor and renowned attorney said that he was allergic to targeted prosecutions. They campaigned, and Bragg and Letitia James (New York Attorney General) -promised to get Trump. Then they spent months and even months looking through statutes to try to get him. This is not how the American legal system should operate.”
