Manhattan DA won’t oppose delaying Trump’s hush money sentencing 

Alvin Bragg Donald Trump 07.02

Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s (D) office on Tuesday said they won’t oppose delaying former President Trump’s July 11 sentencing as he attempts to set aside his hush money verdict on immunity grounds. 

Following the Supreme Court’s decision carving out criminal immunity for former presidents, Trump on Monday sent a letter to his judge insisting prosecutors at trial introduced evidence that is precluded under the Supreme Court’s test. 

“Although we believe defendant’s arguments to be without merit, we do not oppose his request for leave to file and his putative request to adjourn sentencing pending determination of his motion,” Assistant District Attorney Joshua Steinglass responded in a letter filed on Tuesday. 

Trump’s sentencing is currently scheduled for July 11, just days before he is set to officially accept the Republican presidential nomination at the party’s convention.  But prosecutors’ response raises a strong possibility it will be pushed for at least a few weeks.
