Photo Illustration by Elizabeth Brockway/The Daily Beast/GettyFormer President Donald J. Trump just can't shake Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg off him. While Trump is on the verge of successfully delaying his federal criminal prosecutions until well into the red zone of the 2024 election, or even after the election, the New York state election interference trial is now scheduled to start on March 25.
