Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg Sues Jim Jordan for “Brazen and Unconstitutional Attack” on His Office

HeadlineApr 12, 2023

Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg sued Jim Jordan, the Republican chair of the House Judiciary Committee, citing an “unprecedentedly brazen and unconstitutional attack” on the DA’s office over its investigation and prosecution of Donald Trump. Jordan has demanded confidential documents and testimony from Bragg and members of his office. Bragg is seeking to block former prosecutor Mark Pomerantz from having to comply with a subpoena issued by the Judiciary Committee last week. DA Bragg says his office has received over 1,000 calls and emails from Trump supporters with “violent and racist vitriol,” including death threats, since Trump was indicted for falsifying business records to cover up a 2016 hush-money scheme.
