Report Identifies Manhattan DA’s ‘Secret Weapon’ In Trump’s Case And MAGA Fans Are Freaking Out

A report by The Daily Beast has identified Matthew Colangelo, “a little-known New York lawyer who has long been the thorn in Donald Trump’s side,” as a “secret weapon” in the Manhattan DA’s case against the former president.

“Colangelo, who pursued Trump while at the New York Attorney General’s Office, joined the Department of Justice after Trump’s exit from the White House. He recently left the DOJ to join Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s team of prosecutors pursuing criminal charges against Trump that threaten to brand him the first-ever American president-turned-felon. And now he’ll be instrumental in prosecuting the DA’s case against Trump,” The Beast reported.

Unsurprisingly, Trump and his MAGA allies have painted a target on Colangelo’s back, with right-wing media agitators going into a frenzy, spreading that conspiracy with Colangelo as the proverbial missing link.

As such, according to the report, “Colangelo faces the same violent threats that have inundated the DA’s office ever since it decided to arrest Trump. But he’s being singled out.”

“Trump zeroed in on Colangelo in a Truth Social post on Monday, April 3, breathlessly labeling him ‘a top Democrat DOJ official’. Right on cue, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan (R-OH) fired off a letter to Colangelo later that week making an unprecedented request that the prosecutor—who’s actively working on an open criminal investigation—show up to testify and explain ‘the circumstances and chain of events that led to your hiring’ by the DA, breathing life into the conspiracy theory that President Joe Biden is behind the Trump indictment in New York City,” the report states.

The report goes on to say that “Colangelo’s record in court reads like an entirely separate indictment—against Trump for nearly every policy imaginable. And it dates back to the former president’s very first day at the White House.”

“In the summer of 2020, Colangelo emerged as a key investigator probing the Trump Organization’s business practices. Months of law enforcement subpoenas and interviews had discovered what AG Letitia James would later call “significant evidence” of fraud: a decades-long pattern of overvaluing Trump-branded properties to score better bank loans, preferred insurance policies, and bigger tax breaks on donated land.”
