"Bragg’s effort to bring criminal charges against Trump appeared to fizzle earlier this year, after the newly-elected district attorney reportedly balked at filing such a case and the high-powered prosecutors who’d led that probe resigned. However, Bragg insisted Wednesday that the probe is far from stagnant.

'Our criminal investigation concerning former President Donald J. Trump, the Trump Organization, and its leadership is active and ongoing,' the DA said."
Bragg certainly is a disappointment. (To the point people are questioning whether Trump somehow 'got to him'.) He claims that the investigation is 'active', but the grand jury hasn't been active in months.

But, all is not lost. Maybe a strong showing in a civil case (along with any new evidence it provides) might cause renewed efforts for criminal charges. Or maybe (as Waldo mentioned), referrals to the feds might cause criminal investigations at the federal level.
