As the criminal investigation surrounding former President Donald Trump inches closer to a conclusion, all eyes remain on Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg. Bragg is reported to have been meeting with Michael Cohen, an important witness in the case, who has openly endorsed the legitimacy of the prosecution and even stated that his involvement in it is nearly finished.
This news carries more significance than ever as Cohen was one of Trump’s closest confidants during his time in office. His words now carry extra weight when he claims that justice will soon be served against the former president. The details of this case have been largely kept under wraps, but we do know that it relates to campaign finance fraud involving payments made to adult film star Stormy Daniels.
As prosecutors draw nearer to a conclusion, many democrats have begun celebrating what they deem to be a long-overdue victory for justice and accountability. They suggest that Donald Trump is about to face swift retribution for alleged crimes committed while in office — something that many feel could not come soon enough given the magnitude of his transgressions over the years.
If indeed investigators find enough evidence against Trump to move forward with charges, then it would certainly mark one of the biggest political scandals in modern history. It could also see an unprecedented fall from grace for a US president — something no American ever imagined could happen during such turbulent times as these.
Nevertheless, democrats across America remain cautiously optimistic and hope that prosecutors will eventually make good on their promise of true accountability being served at last — regardless of who’s involved or how powerful they may be. In any case, only time will tell exactly what comes out of this historic criminal investigation but its outcome nonetheless promises to be one for the history books either way.
