Manhattan DA Asks to Block Congressional Subpoena for Former Employee – DISMISSED by Court Judge | wayne dupree

On Wednesday, a New York court denied Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s request to block a congressional subpoena for Mark Pomerantz, a former member of the district attorney’s office.

Pomerantz vigorously pushed for the prosecution of former President Donald Trump when he worked for the district attorney’s office. He resigned a few months after Bragg took office, claiming his inability to press charges against the incumbent president. Pomerantz later wrote a book describing the incident.

After Bragg tried to block the subpoena, Judge Mary Kay Vyskocil agreed with the House Judiciary Committee, according to The Epoch Times. Jim Jordan, the Republican chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, is seeking testimony from Pomerantz as part of the committee’s investigation into Bragg’s indictment of Trump.

We anticipate Mark Pomeranz’s testimony before the Judiciary Committee, according to Jordanian spokesman Russell Dye, who said “today’s ruling shows that Congress has the ability to oversee and issue subpoenas to people like Mark Pomeranz”.

Jordan had called Bragg’s call to overturn the subpoena “extraordinary” and “unconstitutional” for attempting to prevent “a witness from complying with a duly issued subpoena”.

In response to a 2016 payment by his then-personal attorney, Michael Cohen, to Stormy Daniels, Bragg filed a lawsuit against the former president. Trump pleaded not guilty. The case was mostly condemned by Republicans as a political prosecution.
