Bombshell: Chuck Schumer's brother is a partner in the NY law firm that loaned attorneys to Bragg's prosecution team against Trump

MANHATTAN, NY- For anyone paying attention, it is clear that the cases being brought against former President Donald Trump are politically motivated and being pushed by prominent Democrats, including the occupant of the White House, Joe Biden.

Nowhere is that clearer than in the sham show trial that took place last month in the so-called “hush money” trial pushed by Soros-funded Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg. Now, an investigative report by Margo Cleveland of The Federalist has shed light on the connection between that case and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY). 

After Trump was convicted by a partisan Manhattan jury last week in the above case, Schumer made the laughable comment that, “The undeniable fact is Donald Trump went through the same legal process that all Americans go through, he was tried according to the facts and the law, and he was found guilty by a jury of his peers.” 

While we can debate that Trump was “tried according to…the law,” and “was found guilty by a jury of his peers,” one thing that cannot be debated is the revelation that a law firm where his brother works helped spur the indictment of the former president. 

Schumer’s brother Robert is a partner in New York law firm Paul, Weiss, Rifking, Wharton, and Garrison, which has been called the “Biden-Era N.Y. Power Center” by Bloomberg. That firm, as reported earlier this week by Cleveland, allowed three highly paid attorneys to receive a leave of absence to join Bragg’s office in the targeting of President Trump. Moreover, Cleveland reports that Bragg’s decision to pursue an indictment of Trump came after the intentional leaking of a resignation letter from one of those high-powered attorneys, Mark Pomerantz. 

In that letter, Pomerantz slammed Bragg for his initial decision not to seek criminal charges against the former president, and for his indefinite suspension of the investigation into him. That letter was conveniently leaked to the New York Times, which incited partisan leftists to attack Bragg for his decision not to charge Trump. 

The public criticism spurred Bragg to rethink his initial decision and he announced that he was indeed going to continue investigating Trump and then, according to Cleveland, sought to “jump start” his investigation into Trump by hiring the number three person in Biden’s Department of Justice, Matthew Colangelo. 

Colangelo had been appointed by Biden as acting associate attorney general, and gave up that high-paying, high-profile position to join Bragg’s hit squad. After Colangelo arrived on Bragg’s team, Bragg indicted the former president on 34 bogus charges related to non-disclosure payments allegedly made to former porn actress Stormy Daniels. Bragg engaged in legal gymnastics to relate a since-expired New York state crime to federal campaign finance laws, thus resurrecting the state law. However at no time during the trial, closing arguments, or jury instructions was the specific crime Trump was accused of committing revealed. 

Despite Chuck Schumer’s claim that the Trump witch hunt was the same as the “legal process that all Americans go through,” Cleveland said it was anything but. In fact, even the highly partisan New York Times called the fact Bragg was able to get a top criminal defense attorney and former federal prosecutor to work “solely on the Trump investigation” was “a highly unusual move for a prosecutor’s office.” 

Cleveland also highlighted Pomerantz’s resignation letter, where he wrote, “I believe that Donald Trump is guilty of numerous felony violations of the Penal Law in connection with the preparation and use of his annual Statements of Financial Condition,” which was leaked to the New York Times. Shortly afterward, Colangelo left his cushy DOJ position to work on a “hush money” case in a New York state court. That, says Cleveland, is “most assuredly not business as usual in the criminal justice system.” 

Chuck Schumer certainly knows that his brother’s law firm is connected to the prosecution of Trump, especially since his brother is a partner at the firm. Joe Biden also knows of Robert Schumer’s ties to the law firm, who in a June 2019 fundraiser at the law firm gave a “shoutout” to Robert Schumer. 

Cleveland noted that the law firm’s connections to Biden are much deeper, leading to Bloomberg’s description of the law firm as the “Biden-Era N.Y. Power Center.” That however is the least of Robert Schumer’s connections to the federal government. 

To show that nepotism knows no bounds, Robert Schumer serves on Sen. Schumer’s “Judicial Selection Committee,’ which helps the senator screen individuals for federal judgeships and U.S. attorney appointments. 

As Cleveland notes, the collaboration of attorneys who helped Bragg conduct the lawfare and those assisting rogue Special Counsel Jack Smith in his two criminal cases being pursued against Trump should result “in a long line of attorneys waiting to be put on a short list for Chuck Schumer and President Biden.” 

This is the swamp President Trump warned us all about.
