May 30, 2024 is a day that will live in infamy! Donald Trump became the first former President of the United States to be brought to court on felony charges and have a jury reach a verdict of guilty. Not to mention that this happened while he is currently running for President again and is the highest polling candidate.

The ripple effects of this historical day will be felt indefinitely. The debates will rage over whether or not this was justice or merely political lawfare.

In part 1, we look at the events from 2006 through 2018 that laid the groundwork for New York District Attorney Alvin Bragg to concoct state felony charges against a former President and candidate for the same office.
