In truth, Bragg could have simply handed Trump the marketing campaign instrument that he must win again the White Home in 2024 by inadvertently making a groundswell of help for the previous president.

For sure, Bragg must tread very fastidiously, in any other case, he dangers seeing the entire thing blow up in his face.
