The Manhattan district attorney’s office deleted the “Meet Our Team” page on its government website this week ahead of former President Donald Trump’s arraignment on Tuesday.
The page that used to list the office’s team members with their prior experience now comes up as “Not Found” on the D.A. website. According to Wayback Machine, the page was last accessible on Monday.
Trump was arraigned in a New York criminal court Tuesday afternoon after Bragg indicted the former president last week. The front-runner for the 2024 GOP presidential nomination pled not guilty to 34 felony counts with a maximum sentence of 136 years in prison. If convicted on any one charge, Trump would be barred from the 2024 presidential ballot. Bragg ran on a platform two years ago to investigate the former president.
The few in Bragg’s office with online social media profiles promptly shut their accounts down as Trump arrived in court. Bragg’s Chief Assistant District Attorney Meg Reiss scrubbed her Twitter profile as prosecutors pressed charges. Screenshots published by ZeroHedge show Reiss had a long history of “likes” on anti-Trump content. A Federalist examination of public campaign finance data also revealed Reiss donated at least $15,000 to anti-Republican efforts since 2008.
Bragg’s chief of investigations, Susan Hoffinger, has donated more than $6,700 to Democrat causes since 2004, according to the Federal Election Commission. Contributions include $500 in donations to President Joe Biden’s 2020 campaign.
Jordan Stockdale, Bragg’s chief of staff, also shut down his own Twitter profile. Before Stockdale deleted the account, screenshots revealed Stockdale liking tweets that demanded Trump’s impeachment.
Trump’s arraignment Tuesday puts President Biden in the same company as Russian President Vladimir Putin, with each president’s chief domestic political opponents under arrest. Beyond the Manhattan charges over hush-money payments to Stormy Daniels, Trump faces investigations by Biden’s Department of Justice and Georgia prosecutors over the 2020 election, classified documents, and Jan. 6, 2021.
