Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg Sues Jim Jordan to Block Congressional Inquiry of Trump Indictment

House Republicans and Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg have been exchanging barbs since it was announced that former President Donald Trump would be indicted in relation to ‘hush money’ payments made to Stormy Daniels.

Less than a week after Representative Jim Jordan, R-Oh. announced that he planned to subpoena former Manhattan prosecutor Mark Pomerantz, Bragg sued Jordan to block the subpoena and other actions that would shed light on the origins of the indictment against Trump.

In the lawsuit, Bragg said he’s taking legal action “in response to an unprecedently brazen and unconstitutional attack by members of Congress on an ongoing New York State criminal prosecution and investigation of former President Donald J. Trump.”

The Manhattan District Attorney further said that Jordan’s subpoena represents ‘unprecedented’ interference by Congress.

“Chairman Jordan’s subpoena is an unconstitutional attempt to undermine an ongoing New York felony criminal prosecution and investigation,” Bragg said. “As our complaint details, this is an unprecedented, illegitimate interference by Congress that lacks any legal merit and defies basic principles of federalism.”

The subpoena was an attempt by House Republicans to gain more insight into the motives behind Trump’s indictment. Pomerantz resigned after Bragg refused to prosecute Trump, leading many to believe that Bragg chose to prosecute Trump due to political pressure within his office and from Democratic voters.

In a resignation letter published by the New York Times, Pomerantz wrote that Bragg’s reluctance to pursue charges against Trump was “misguided and completely contrary to the public interest.”

Bragg asserted that the Manhattan District Attorney’s office focuses on the law and evidence, not political gamesmanship.

“The Manhattan D.A.’s Office focuses on the law and the evidence, not political gamesmanship or threats. We look forward to presenting our case in court to enjoin enforcement of the subpoena.”

People from both sides of the aisle have questioned claims that the indictment is impartial, noting that Bragg is testing an unprecedented legal theory in New York to charge Trump with a felony.

Liberal defense attorney Alan Dershowitz said he has ‘never seen a weaker indictment’ than the one issued against Trump.

Still, Bragg stood by the indictment, saying it was “approved by citizens of New York.”

“The charges the District Attorney filed against Mr. Trump were approved by citizens of New York,” the suit states.

He went so far as to say that Jordan is engaging in a campaign of ‘intimidation’ and ‘retaliation.’

“Rather than allowing the criminal process to proceed in the ordinary course, Chairman Jordan and the Committee are participating in a campaign of intimidation, retaliation, and obstruction.”

Jordan responded to Bragg’s lawsuit on Tuesday afternoon, reaffirming that the indictment against Trump is baseless, and expressing outrage that Bragg is attempting to prevent inquiry in to the indictment.

“First, they indict a president for no crime.  Then, they sue to block congressional oversight when we ask questions about the federal funds they say they used to it,” Jordan wrote.
