DA Alvin Bragg Sent Spinning in Trump Case, And He May Never Recover…

In the News

 

The case against former President Donald Trump, brought by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, is expected to drag on for quite a while.

Multiple legal maneuvers have already been made, as Republican leaders continue to push back against the proceedings. This includes Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH), head of the House Judiciary Committee.

And this week, a judge gave Jordan a significant victory over Bragg.

The House Judiciary Committee has been probing the indictment of Trump from the start, which has proven problematic for the prosecutors.

That’s why DA Bragg requested a restraining order against Rep. Jordan and his Committee, so they wouldn’t be able to further interfere in the case. However, the court doesn’t view it as “interference.”

The ruling also came with an added bonus for Jordan and the GOP.

Via Washington Examiner:

Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s request for a restraining order in his lawsuit against Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) was declined by a judge on Tuesday.

The judge ordered Bragg to send material to Jordan by 9 p.m. Tuesday so the court could have a hearing on the situation on April 19.

Not only did the DA not get the restraining order, but he has only a few days to  provide the Committee with the requested material.

Rep. Jordan subpoenaed an investigator involved with the case, and Bragg filed for a restraining order so the subpoena wouldn’t be enforced. This would force a previous prosecutor, Mark Pomerantz, to testify.

That subpoena is still outstanding for the time being, and Bragg’s lawyers are suing Jordan to stop him from gaining any more information.

They claim that “Congress has no power to supervise state criminal prosecution,” and that Jordan is basically out of his jurisdiction on this matter.

Bragg said he filed “in response to an unprecedentedly brazen and unconstitutional attack by members of Congress.” And he also wants any future subpoenas to be shot down before they can be submitted.
