The hosts of the ABC talk show “The View” were celebrating the indictment of former President Donald Trump until they were faced with the reality of a weak case, no underlying crime, and serious questions about the statute of limitations and jurisdiction.
Whoopi Goldberg, one of the hosts, was visibly disappointed when her co-host Sunny Hostin had to read a legal note from the Trump team denying any criminal wrongdoing and pleading not guilty.
The case against Trump and the District Attorney who brought it, Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, is not looking too bright.
The Republican-led House Judiciary Committee is “seriously weighing” issuing subpoenas for Bragg and two prosecutors who resigned from his team after Trump was indicted and arraigned.
The two prosecutors on his team resigned last year when it appeared that Bragg was not going to indict the former president. The resignations came in February 2022 during a month-long freeze in presenting evidence to a grand jury, which suggests a lack of confidence in the case by Bragg.
