NEW: Trump SLAMS Alvin Bragg case, says 'we're being tried for something that's not even a crime'

"We're being tried for something that's not even a crime, they say at most it's a misdemeanor, but there's no misdemeanor either."

Speaking inside 40 Wall Street on Monday afternoon, Trump addressed the rescheduled date in his falsified business records case brought forth by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, as well as the lowered bond payment issued by an appeals court on Monday morning. 

During the Monday morning hearing in the case, Judge Juan Merchan set an April 15 start date for the trial, with Trump facing 34 counts felony counts of allegedly falsifying business records. Trump said that the whole case is over something that is "not even a crime."

"This is all about election interference. This is all Biden-run things, meaning Biden and his thugs, because I don't know if he knows he's alive." 

"It's a shame what's happening to our country. This is election interference. They are doing things that have never been done in this country before. We've never had anything like it, certainly not at this level, but we've really had nothing like it that I've been able to find, it does happen a lot in third-world countries, banana republics.” 

“If you look at what we just left, you had a — you have a case which they're dying to get this thing started. The judge cannot go faster. He wants to get it started so badly. And there's tremendous corruption. You have Pomerantz, Mark Pomerantz, he was Hillary Clinton's lawyer, Democrat National Committee's lawyer. He worked in Paul Weiss. He walked in and he took over the district attorney's office, nobody's ever seen anything like that, to prosecute Trump.” 

"And then they wouldn't do what he wanted to do. And he goes out and he writes a book long before any decisions were made. He writes a book about it and the book gets published and everybody is reading his book. And the judge said, there's nothing wrong with that," Trump said. 

He added that Bragg said, "This trial is now dead,” in response to the book being written.  

Trump later added that this "was done by Biden and his thugs" because "they can't win an election because of the borders, because of energy prices, because of inflation, because of Afghanistan, the worst and most embarrassing day in the history of our country. He can't win because of Russia, Russia, Russia, because of all the problems, because of Ukraine being attacked by Russia. And he can't win because of the October 7 Attack of Israel." 

"We're being tried for something that's not even a crime, they say at most it's a misdemeanor, but there's no misdemeanor either." 

Trump said that the cases against him, "every one of them, is ridiculous," and added that "this is all weaponization of the DOJ and FBI." 

"They could have started this when I left office, you could have gotten back three years, more than that. When I left the office, all of these things could have been started. So, we wouldn't be quibbling over starting this week or that week or two days or three days. It wouldn't have mattered this. This would have been over two years ago." 

"They could have started — they should have never started because there's no case." 

Trump added that the "good" news of the day was the Appellate Division granting him a lowered bond in the New York civil fraud case of $175 million. 

"It's a lot of money still, but the judge is corrupt in my opinion. He's the most overturn judge he's been overturned five times in this case alone."
