Following his indictment on charges of falsifying business records and tax fraud, former President Donald Trump’s legal team has launched a vigorous defense. In a statement released shortly after the indictment was announced, the team called the charges “baseless” and accused Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg of playing politics.
“The district attorney’s decision to indict Mr. Trump is a disgraceful and politically motivated act,” the statement read. “The charges are baseless and completely without merit, and we will vigorously defend against them in court.”
The statement also emphasized that Trump has pleaded not guilty to the charges and denied any wrongdoing. The former president’s lawyers have vowed to fight the charges and argue that they are part of a broader campaign to undermine Trump politically.
It remains to be seen how the case will play out in court, but it is clear that Trump’s legal team is gearing up for a tough fight.
