(ConservativeHub.com) – According to Fox News, at least one legal expert believes New York County District Attorney Alvin Bragg might have violated former President Donald Trump’s Sixth Amendment rights by not disclosing the fundamental offense that the defendant allegedly attempted to withhold through the business records falsification.
The Sixth Amendment says that one of the rights of a suspect or defendant is to “be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation.” However, Bragg has so far refused to answer which crime the defendant, in this case, Trump, was allegedly trying to conceal. When asked by reporters about this, Bragg noted that in the state of New York, he is not obligated to provide this information, which is why the indictment does not include this information.
On “Hannity,” legal specialist Gregg Jarrett dismissed Bragg’s statements, claiming that he has most likely violated Trump’s right to know exactly what charges and accusations are yielded against him. Jarrett also noted that as per the Sixth Amendment, Bragg is required to provide this information, without which his indictment is “facially defective.” He further claimed that due to this deficiency, Trump might be able to proceed with a motion to dismiss the case.
During his analysis, Jarrett also questioned whether during his time at Harvard Bragg had slept through constitutional law. He then proceeded to recall words spoken by former Supreme Court Justice Robert H. Jackson, who had claimed that the biggest threat to justice is an immoral attorney “who targets a person and then scours the law books” to determine what crime he can charge the person with. He proceeded to allege that this is precisely how Bragg has acted.
