    The Facts

    • Two lead prosecutors in Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg's criminal investigation of the Trump Org. have abruptly resigned, a potentially troubling sign for the future of the probe.

    • Bragg's office confirmed the resignations of Carey Dunne and Mark Pomerantz, both of whom joined the investigation during the term of former DA Cyrus Vance Jr.


    The Spin

    Pro-Trump narrative

    After years of politically motivated racist investigation, the DA has finally arrived at the truth: there is no evidence of crime because Donald Trump and the Trump Org. didn't commit any. NY AG Letitia James' case will suffer the same fate.

    Left narrative

    Trump is attempting to portray every one of the many investigations of his personal and political conduct as "partisan" and therefore "illegitimate." This is a classic tactic of authoritarian leaders whose ultimate aim is to undermine the rule of law and weaponize it against their opponents.
