Former President Donald Trump’s last spy boss made an observation during a Sunday interview that ought to get the attention of Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg.
While speaking to Fox News anchor Maria Bartiromo, former Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe said leaks of information pertaining to charges stemming from Bragg’s indictment on Thursday were a felony and whoever did the leaks is in big-time trouble.
“The only felony of which we can be certain to come out of this Alvin Bragg prosecution in New York is the felony committed either by DA Bragg himself or someone on the grand jury that he’s using for this perversion of our justice system,” Ratcliffe told the “Sunday Morning Futures” anchor.
“The accused, Donald Trump, and his lawyers, don’t know what’s in this sealed indictment. But for the past, what? Seventy-two hours, the American public has been discussing supposedly 30 or 34 felony counts,” he added. “Leaking grand jury information is a felony. And so the only people capable of that would be Alvin Bragg’s team or members of the grand jury itself.”
CNN and NBC News have reported, citing “sources,” that the former president is facing approximately 30 charges — information that has not been officially made public yet because the indictment remains sealed until Trump’s arraignment on Tuesday.
