Constitution requires defendants to be told of specific charge
As the media scrum fades and the facts start to emerge following Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg's cryptic indictment of President Donald Trump on bookkeeping charges this week, analysts have raised the charge that he violated the U.S. Constitution with his political agenda against the likely GOP candidate for president in 2024.
A report from Fox News explains it involves the 6th Amendment, which requires that any criminal defendant be told of the accusation against him.
Fox documented that the amendment provides for a defendant to "be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor…"
However, Bragg's indictment left most of the details of what he's charged Trump with obscure and cloudy.
And when he was asked by a reporter to identify what "underlying" crime the indictment involves, he refused to explain.
"The indictment doesn't specify it because the laws does not so require," he claimed.
