Turley Lays Out How Weak NY Case Against Trump Ultimately Helps Him in Other Legal Fights (www.patriotproject.com)

George Washington University law professor Jonathan Turley argued the Manhattan DA’s case could help Trump in the other criminal investigations he faces.

“I’m afraid this has all of the markings of a political prosecution. It’s hard to escape that conclusion,” Turley told Fox News.

“Previous prosecutors rejected this claim who decided not to move on it, including the Department of Justice. What he’s trying to do is to bootstrap a state misdemeanor into a federal alleged crime that the federal government decided to pass on,” he added.

The charge a New York grand jury is currently reportedly considering is whether a 2016 $130,000 payment made to adult film star Stormy Daniels by then-Trump attorney Michael Cohen constituted a campaign finance violation.
