WATCH: Turley Explains How Alvin Bragg Is Making Trump’s Immunity Case “For Him”

Who is President Trump’s best lawyer right now?

If you ask George Washington University law professor Jonathan Turley, it’s Alvin Bragg.

Yes, you read that right. According to Turley, the DA spearheading Trump’s NY criminal trial has become one of his biggest allies when it comes to the upcoming Supreme Court hearing on presidential immunity.

In an appearance on Fox News, Turley claimed that Alvin Bragg is practically making Trump’s immunity case for him.

For those of you who prefer to read, The Daily Caller broke down the details of what Turley had to say:

George Washington University law professor Jonathan Turley said Thursday that Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg helped former President Donald Trump make his case for immunity.

New York Judge Juan Merchan ordered Trump to attend the trial regarding a $130,000 payout to porn star Stormy Daniels, meaning he cannot attend the Supreme Court’s oral arguments on presidential immunity set for Thursday. Turley said that Bragg’s prosecution may work against arguments special counsel Jack Smith will make.

“In some ways, having him in New York is the best argument he could put in front of the justices because Alvin Bragg is making the case for him,” Turley said. “I mean, as the court considers the implications of not extending immunity to presidents, Alvin Bragg is showing what that means.”

“This is a highly political, in my view, legally absurd case in Manhattan, and it is playing out as the court considers the implications of this type of prosecution, and so for the court, I think it’s only going to reinforce this idea that we don’t necessarily want to go to either extreme, but perhaps there is a nuanced or middle road here where we can afford some protection to a president for actions taken related to their office,” Turley continued.

Turley also claimed during a Fox & Friends segment on Thursday that Alvin Bragg is “probably the best lawyer Donald Trump has right now.”

From RealClearPolitics:

Fox News contributor Jonathan Turley joins ‘Fox & Friends’ to discuss the presidential immunity case being taken up by the Supreme Court and the upcoming ruling on whether Trump violated his gag order.

“The interesting thing about today’s Supreme Court decision is, and the Manhattan case is, that Alvin Bragg is probably the best lawyer Donald Trump has right now,” Turley said. “He’s making the case to the Supreme Court that there needs to be immunity protection because he’s the problem. This is exactly what the court was worried about. You’ve got these Democratic district attorneys clearly politicizing the criminal justice system. The Manhattan case is legally absurd, and it’s occurring on the very day that the court is considering how to protect presidents. That case cannot but help former President Trump.”
