Bragg suffers another witness malfunction

Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg (D) has run into more problems with his witnesses. 

The Daily Caller reports that Bragg's sixth witness - Attorney Keith Davidson - took a "significant hit to his credibility" during cross-examination on Thursday.

This is all taking place in the so-called hush money case. This is the case in which Bragg accuses former President Donald Trump of criminally misrepresenting a payment that Trump allegedly gave, ahead of the 2016 presidential election, to adult film actress Stormy Daniels to hide an alleged affair between the two.

Trump has maintained his innocence, and he has further alleged that Bragg, with this case, is running election interference for President Joe Biden.


For those unfamiliar with Keith Davidson, he, at one point, was an attorney for both Karen McDougal and Stormy Daniels. As such, Davidson was instrumental in the making of the alleged hush money payment from Trump to Daniels.

Suffice it to say that he is a major witness for Bragg and that his testimony is a big deal, which is why - for the sake of Bragg's case - Davidson needs to be a strong witness.

According to the Daily Caller, however, Davidson has been anything but.

The outlet reports that Davidson, on Thursday, was torn apart by Emil Bove, one of Trump's attorneys, during a "heated" cross-examination.

According to the outlet, Bove made it appear as though Davidson is "a shady lawyer who gets as close to the line as he can without crossing it, brokering deals that border on extortion."

Some important takeaways from Davidson's testimony

During cross-examination, Davidson refused to refer to the alleged payment from Trump to Daniels as "hush money." Instead, he referred to it as "consideration," which is a term used in contract law to describe what a party to a contract will give in return for what they are getting. Davidson, rather, claims that Trump gave the money as part of a civil settlement with Daniels.

This already marks a general departure from the narrative that has been pushed by the mainstream media. But, something even more important than this happened on cross-examination.

The Daily Caller reports, "Bove’s questioning of Davidson suggested an alternate explanation to the Daniels’ payment: Trump was another victim of the attorney’s extortion efforts."

On top of this, Davidson took a shot at another one of Bragg's key witnesses, former Trump attorney Michael Cohen. In the process of doing so, Davidson suggested that Cohen is not a credible person, which, by now, is public knowledge. That being said, Bragg does not need one witness undermining another.

To put it mildly, things are not going Bragg's way. But, still, it might not matter, as this case is taking place in New York City, which is heavily Democratic.
