Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg is losing his marbles now that House Committees are asking questions and demanding documents. They are zeroing in on what certainly looks like political targeting of President Donald Trump.
Bragg is pursuing an indictment of Trump but he’s got a boatload of problems in his case including a key witness who is a known liar, Michael Cohen.
The grand jury was once again postponed on Thursday, so there’s more time to find all of the holes in Bragg’s case.
Bragg had to respond to the letters from the House Judiciary Committee calling his actions an “unprecedented abuse of prosecutorial authority.”
All of these moves seem to be too much for Bragg who fired off a letter to GOP House committee chairmen Jim Jordan of Ohio, Bryan Steil of Wisconsin, and James Comer of Kentucky.
In the letter, he blamed Trump for creating a “false expectation” that he was going to be arrested and talked about the confidentiality of the process which was important to “protect the government’s ability to prosecute fully and fairly.”
Bragg also said that his probe “is one of thousands conducted” by the office in its history and that he “stands by his pledge” to release the conclusion of the investigation publicly.
“Your letter dated March 20, 2023 (the ‘Letter’), in contrast, is an unprecedented inquiry into a pending local prosecution,” Bragg’s office wrote.
“The Letter only came after Donald Trump created a false expectation that he would be arrested the next day and his lawyers reportedly urged you to intervene,” the letter accused. “Neither fact is a legitimate basis for congressional inquiry.”
Bragg’s office also called the lawmakers’ requests “an unlawful incursion into New York’s sovereignty” as well as argued that “federal funding is an insufficient basis to justify these unconstitutional requests.”
Does anybody remember that it was the leak out of Bragg’s own office that started this circus?
