“Intimidate and attack”: Bragg slaps Jim Jordan with a lawsuit

Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg is hitting back at Republicans trying to interfere in his office’s investigation of Donald J. Trump. Bragg is suing House Judiciary Chairman Jim Jordan for what the lawsuit describes as a ‘transparent campaign to intimidate and attack’ the district attorney and interfere in his office’s case against the former president. dismissed twice.

The New York Times reports:

The 50-page lawsuit, filed in federal court in the Southern District of New York, accuses Mr Jordan of a ‘brazen and unconstitutional attack’ on Mr Trump’s lawsuit and a ‘transparent campaign to intimidate and attack’ the district attorney. , Alvin L. Bragg. Mr Bragg unveiled 34 felony charges against Mr Trump last week that stem from the former president’s attempts to cover up a potential sex scandal during and after the 2016 presidential campaign.

Lawyers for Mr. Bragg are seeking to bar Mr. Jordan and his congressional allies from executing a subpoena issued to Mark F. Pomerantz, who was once a leader in the District Attorney’s Trump investigation and who later wrote a book about this experience. Mr. Pomerantz resigned early last year after Mr. Bragg, just weeks into his first term, decided not to seek Trump’s indictment at the time.

Ohio Republican tries to obstruct justice:

Last month, Mr. Jordan, in his role as chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, sent a letter to two Republican colleagues asking the district attorney’s office to provide communications, documents and testimony about the investigation of Mr. Bragg on Mr. Trump. And after Mr. Bragg’s prosecutors uncovered the charges against Mr. Trump last week, Mr. Jordan issued the subpoena to Mr. Pomerantz seeking to compel a closed-door deposition.

Pomerantz won’t help Jim. He was frustrated with Bragg for not pressing charges sooner. As the outlet notes, in Pomerantz’s book, he described Trump’s actions as clearly criminal.


Jordan responded, suggesting that Trump had been charged with “no crime” despite 34 counts.
