Whoopi Forced to Read Legal Note on Trump Arrest

OPINION:  This article contains commentary which may reflect the author’s opinion

When the hosts of “The View” moved from celebrating former President Donald Trump’s indictment to dealing with reality, they were left visibly disturbed and in shock by what they were forced to read aloud.

There are serious questions about the statute of limitations in this case, not only are there serious doubts about the credibility of the charges, but there is also the question of whether Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg even had jurisdiction to bring this case in the first place.

This is why on Wednesday, the day following the indictment, there wasn’t as much celebration for the hosts, as there was the day before.

Host Whoopi Goldberg kicked off the show by saying, “Yesterday, you-know-who made the trip downtown to a Manhattan courthouse to face justice.” However, she became visibly disappointed when co-host Sunny Hostin was forced to read a legal letter from the team of Donald Trump in front of the audience.

“I have a legal note: Trump has pleaded not guilty and denied any criminal wrongdoing and said he never had an affair with Stormy Daniels or Karen McDougal,” she said.

“I’m not saying a thing,” an annoyed Goldberg said.

Things are not looking too good for the District Attorney who eagerly brought the case against Trump to gain notoriety and fulfill a divisive campaign promise that got him into the top prosecutorial position just a few short months ago.

Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg and two prosecutors who resigned from his team after former President Donald Trump was indicted and arraigned, could soon find themselves on the wrong side of the law from the Republican-led House Judiciary Committee who has said they are “seriously weighing” issuing subpoenas.

There were two prosecutors who worked on the Bragg team that resigned last year when it appeared that the former president wouldn’t be indicted by Bragg.

Some believe that the resignations were made during a monthlong freeze on the presentation of evidence to a grand jury, indicating that the District Attorney did not have complete confidence in the case.

According to The New York Times: “The unexpected development came not long after the high-stakes inquiry appeared to be gaining momentum and now throws its future into serious doubt. The prosecutors, Carey R. Dunne and Mark F. Pomerantz, submitted their resignations because the new Manhattan district attorney, Alvin Bragg, indicated to them that he had doubts about moving forward with a case against Mr. Trump, the people said. Mr. Pomerantz confirmed in a brief interview that he had resigned but declined to elaborate. Mr. Dunne declined to comment.”

“Without Mr. Bragg’s commitment to move forward, the prosecutors late last month postponed a plan to question at least one witness before the grand jury, one of the people said. They have not questioned any witnesses in front of the grand jury for more than a month, essentially pausing their investigation into whether Mr. Trump inflated the value of his assets to obtain favorable loan terms from banks,” the NYT report added.

Bragg has faced many roadblocks in presenting his case, including obtaining testimony from the Trump organization’s executives, the Times noted.

Bragg indicted the former president a year later, and many Republicans and even numerous Democrats believe that it was more political than legal in nature.

Pomerantz, who donated to Hillary Clinton’s campaign, authored a book that outlined the case for charging Trump with a crime.

Last week, Trump entered a not guilty plea in a Manhattan criminal court to 34 counts accusing him of falsifying business records as part of his campaign.

“A source familiar told Fox News Digital on Wednesday night that the House Judiciary Committee is ‘seriously’ considering issuing subpoenas for Bragg, and the two ex-prosecutors – Mark Pomerantz and Carey Dunne – to testify before the panel,” Fox News said.

Jim Jordan, chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, defended former President Donald Trump and threatened to defund any government agencies that interfered in elections.

Jordan spoke on Fox News about government agencies targeting Trump politically ahead of the 2024 elections:

“The key is to get the facts on the table. We’re doing that with all kinds of issues where we think agencies have been turned against the very American people they’re supposed to serve. So you get the facts on the table, and then you look at legislation. Our job is we’re legislators. Our job is to pass legislation, write laws and pass legislation. So we’ll look at that. We control the power of the purse, and that’s — we’re going to have to look at the appropriations process and limit funds going to some of these agencies, particularly the ones engaged in the most egregious behavior,” Jordan declared.

“So the DOJ and the FBI?” host Maria Bartiromo asked.

“Yeah. And what I’d really like, frankly, I’d like for the government just to stay out of the election process. 2016, they spied on his campaign. 2018, the Mueller investigation. 2020 they suppressed the hunter Biden story. 2022, they raid his home 91 days before an election, and now 2024 election, the leading candidate for the presidential nomination, they indict the former president and top candidate who’s leading in every poll,” Jordan said.
