MSNBC Panel Discusses Updates In NYC Case

On May 13, 2024 an MSNBC panal discussed the latest and greatest about the Trump trial that is being prosecuted by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg.

The panel expressed growing concern that Bragg has yet to nail Trump on any of the 34 felony charges and has not produced any solid evidence.

Former Minnesota Senator Claire McCaskill whined that “circumstantial evidence is all hat Bragg has produced and was upset that no “direct evidence” exists.

“I’m a little concerned about the fact that there’s so much emphasis on the payment being made and how the payment came about being made, and I think everyone has to always keep front of mind that the prosecutors have to prove the way they recorded these payments and hid them in the business records is really the key to a conviction in this case,” McCaskill said, according to the Daily Caller. “And that while Trump signed all those checks, it’s a lot of circumstantial evidence. And sometimes, as Dan will tell you, a mountain full of circumstantial evidence is much better than one unreliable witness. So I do think the circumstantial evidence is significant here, but the direct evidence that Trump was fully aware that these payments were being hidden in a way that was fraudulent is a little light at this point. And I think the jury is going to wonder, where is Allen Weisselberg?”

Cohen, who was convicted for lying to Congress has sort of been the star witness but during testimony he may have admitted to breaking the law by secretly recording Trump.

“It does remain to be seen” if the prosecution can show that Trump knew exactly what Cohen was up to Congressman Dan Goldman (D-NY) said. “The detail defense is a tough one to make… The DA knows they are going to have to corroborate [Cohen] because they know he is an admitted perjurer.”
