Trump-aligned Legal Group Files Bar Complaint Against Bragg

America First Legal is more or less the legal wing of the Trump campaign.

The organization is now targeting Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg in much the same manner as it targeted a group of liberal judges.

AFL has filed a complaint against Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg that could have him disbarred.

The Complaint

AFL is attacking Bragg for diversity hiring practices, which it believes are discriminatory in nature.

America First Legal Vice President Dan Epstein stated, "We have kind of marshaled evidence that his office, when it comes to hiring attorney talent, is very clear about engaging in kind of diversity requirements — whether you call that ‘racial balancing,' whether you call that ‘quotas.' There's clear evidence that there are further steps to do that.”

He later added, "That is precisely the opposite of what lawyers, particularly law enforcement lawyers, should be doing.”

Epstein continued, "It’s not just forced disclosure of race, ethnicity and gender. It's statements on their hiring portal that say that the district attorney's office has diversity, equity, inclusion priorities and that they’re committed to hiring a diverse staff.

"Whenever you give kind-of bonus points or whenever you effectively say, 'Between two equally qualified candidates, we're going to pick the candidate simply because of race,' that's discrimination."

AFL filed a similar lawsuit against several judges for their hiring practices.

Unfortunately, they were unsuccessful in their suit, so while I love the idea of going after Bragg, I do not have high hopes they will be successful in having him removed from office.

Bragg is one of many liberal DAs around the country who are intent not to prosecute crimes and empty out our prisons.

While people are being murdered on the subway and assaulted on the streets, Bragg is trying to make a career case against Trump.

While Bragg did get his guilty verdict, Judge Merchan appeared to make numerous judgment calls that will likely result in the case being overturned on appeal.
