District Attorney Alvin Bragg Demands Delay in Trump’s New York City Trial – EVOL

Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg has requested a postponement of President Trump’s trial by up to thirty days. The charges stem from an alleged payment to adult entertainer Stormy Daniels, also known as Stephanie Clifford, to keep quiet about an affair.

The trial, initially set to begin jury selection on March 25, faces a potential delay. Bragg accused Trump last April on 34 counts of Falsifying Business Records in the First Degree, each carrying a maximum sentence of four years.

Bragg stated that the U.S. Attorney’s Office had recently handed over approximately 31,000 pages of documents to both the defense and prosecution on Wednesday. He mentioned that he would require about a month to review the documents thoroughly. Bragg blamed Trump for the delay.

Text from Bragg’s filing:

Defendant has moved for an adjournment or dismissal based on claimed discovery violations, and also seeks to adjourn the start of trial by 90 days because of the production since March 4, 2024, of approximately 73,000 pages of records by the United States Attorney’s Office. These records were produced in response to defendant’s January 18, 2024, subpoena to that office. The People’s opposition to defendant’s motion is currently due tomorrow, March
