NLPC Counsel Says Alvin Bragg Pursuing ‘Witch Hunt; ’Allegations vs. Trump Are ‘Nothing Burger’
On One America News, NLPC Counsel Paul Kamenar says Manhattan district attorney Alvin Bragg’s potential indictment and arrest of former President Trump would be a clear case of using a two bit misdemeanor charge to fuel a “witch hunt” and “vindictive prosecution.”
Kamenar also analyzed such an indictment in the Washington Examiner. From the story by Ryan King:
Specifics of what an indictment will entail have not been revealed, but reports indicate that Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s office is planning to couple a misdemeanor charge over an alleged falsification of business records with a federal campaign finance violation to achieve a felony charge.
To deploy the campaign finance argument, Bragg’s team will have to successfully argue that Trump’s business empire falsified records regarding the payment to Cohen. Paul Kamenar, counsel to the National Legal and Policy Center, contends that’s a “nothing burger.”
“I wouldn’t be surprised if lots of businessmen put down as a business expense travel and entertainment for personal purposes that they write off as a business expense. The bottom line, even under New York law, that’s a misdemeanor. It’s a nothing burger,” Kamenar said.
On March 2, the Office of Congressional Ethics (OCE) released its report regarding a referral it had made to the House Ethics Committee on June 23, 2022. According to OCE:...
The National Legal and Policy Center promotes ethics in public life through research, investigation, education, and legal action.
The bigger the government, the more opportunities for corruption; and the more intervention in the economy, the more reason for special interests to seek influence.
Ethics are not advanced through more laws or “better guidelines.
The missing ingredients are character, morality, and common sense.

Talent for sniffing out corruption
Anderson’s research was the basis for part of the bribery indictment against Senator Robert Menendez

It takes a special skill to recognize corruption hiding in plain sight. It also takes talent to know what to do with the information. Sitting in front of a computer and working the phones, Tom has achieved near-legendary status with investigative reporters.
