Update, 11:50 a.m .:

But criticism of Alvin Bragg does not only come from the ranks of the Republicans.

The prosecutor is also attacked by individual representatives of the Democrats.

Former New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo called the investigation into Donald Trump "political" and warned it would fuel "cynicism and division" in American politics.

Criticism of the prosecutor: Republicans attack Bragg because of Trump

Update, 10.30 a.m .:

Prosecutor Alvin Bragg has to put up with a lot, especially from the Republican camp.

In a joint letter, MPs Jim Jordan, James Comer and Bryan Steil requested information about the ongoing investigation into Donald Trump.

Bragg, however, denied this demand.

Last week, Republicans asked Bragg to appear before a US House of Representatives committee and testify.

The prosecutor rejected that as well.

Republicans have held a razor-thin majority in the House of Representatives since winning the 2022 Midterms.

Lawsuit against Donald Trump?

Final in New York

First report from March 27th:

New York – This time, too, the United States is eagerly awaiting a possible decision in New York: will Alvin Bragg, the prosecutor responsible for the Manhattan district, file a lawsuit against Donald Trump or not?

The ex-president has been under investigation in his hometown for several years because of hush money payments to porn actress Stormy Daniels and model Karen McDougal.

With the payments handled by Trump's then-attorney Michael Cohen, the former president may have violated campaign finance laws.

A grand jury will decide whether that's enough for an indictment.

The jury will reconvene today (March 27) to decide a possible lawsuit.

Donald Trump threatens prosecutors in New York

Trump announced his imminent arrest last Tuesday, only to claim at a campaign event on Sunday in Waco, Texas that Bragg had long since dropped the charges against him.

In between, Trump openly threatened the prosecutor with violence.

“We will finish what we started.

With you by my side, we will completely wipe out the deep state," Trump wrote on his social media platform Truth Social.

He accompanied the whole thing with a picture that showed himself with a baseball bat in his hand and a photo of prosecutor Bragg next to him.

"Death and destruction" would follow false accusations, Trump said.

Bragg and his associates called Trump "human waste."

The 76-year-old ex-president called for protests against his alleged arrest several times last week.

This call had also alarmed the security authorities.

So far, however, the situation has been calm, according to both the FBI and the New York police.

Concrete threats are not known.

Lawsuit against Donald Trump would be historic

But whether the decision will be made today about a possible indictment against Donald Trump is anything but certain.

Several US media are reporting that more witnesses are to be heard in New York.

If that were indeed the case, the decision on a possible indictment would certainly be postponed.

But if that were to happen, Trump would have achieved something historic again: he would be the first former US President to be indicted by prosecutors.
