the most qualified candidate to prosecute Trump

New York Times
, Bragg “repeatedly brought up his many lawsuits against Mr. Trump and his administration” during his campaign. The article states: “Mr. Bragg, at a Democratic candidate forum in December, cited that lawsuit as one reason he was qualified to oversee the district attorney’s Trump investigation. ‘I have investigated Trump and his children and held them accountable for their misconduct with the Trump Foundation […] It is a fact that I have sued Trump more than a hundred times […] I can’t change that fact, nor would I. That was important work.’”
