After securing the House majority, Republicans wasted no time in doing exactly what they promised to do prior to the midterms.

Manhattan D.A. Alvin Bragg Sues Rep. Jim Jordan

Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg filed a lawsuit Tuesday against House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan, demanding that a federal court invalidate any subpoenas he might send for Bragg, and his current or former staff members in the wake of President Donald Trump’s recent indictment.

Jordan subpoenaed former New York County Special District Attorney Mark Pomerantz last week, accusing him of politicizing the investigation into Trump and encouraging Bragg to charge the former president.

Bragg’s Tuesday court filing asked the court to temporarily stop the enforcement of Pomerantz’s subpoena and label additional subpoenas from Jordan or the Committee to Bragg invalid.

Rep. Jim Jordan tweeted, “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 do it.”

In recent weeks, the Judiciary Committee issued a subpoena seeking testimony from a former prosecutor, Mark Pomerantz, who previously oversaw the Trump investigation.

The committee has also sought documents and testimony from Bragg and his office about the case. Bragg has rejected those requests.

The House Judiciary Committee is scheduled to hold a hearing in Manhattan on Monday on crime in New York City and what it alleges are Bragg’s “pro-crime, anti-victim” policies.

The Republican-led House Judiciary Committee continues to come after left-wing Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg following his indictment of former President Donald Trump.

The committee plans to travel to New York City on April 17 to hold a hearing on violent crime in Bragg’s jurisdiction. The intent is to analyze how Bragg’s “pro-crime, anti-victim” policies have made the Big Apple a paradise for criminals.

The witnesses at the hearing will be some of those crime victims.

Newsmax noted that Bragg’s office labeled the hearing a “political stunt” and said the GOP lawmakers were coming to the “safest big city in America” — which has experienced a 22% increase in violent crime since Bragg took office.

In an interview, Rep. Matt Gaetz, a Judiciary Committee member, and a Fort Walton Beach Republican, told Newsmax, “It seems that New Yorkers are clinging to their yoga mats in fear, as a consequence of the streets being turned over to the criminal element.”

“This didn’t happen by accident,” he added.

Rather, it stems directly from Bragg’s policies, such as reducing felonies to misdemeanors and releasing suspects on cashless bail, Gaetz argued.

“This didn’t happen by accident. It is a direct consequence of policy choices that we hope are not made in other parts of the country,” said Gaetz.

The congressman also noted that multiple House committees want Bragg to answer for his policies, whether those involve the use of federal funding to further his soft-on-crime policies, or to advance the “bizarre and embarrassing” legal theory Bragg invoked to indict Trump for a campaign finance violation for an alleged payoff to stripper Stormy Daniels.

“Just because Alvin Bragg doesn’t punish an activity as a crime doesn’t mean it wasn’t a crime, (and it) doesn’t mean there isn’t a victim class that’s being expanded because the woke left doesn’t want to deal with the permanent criminal element that terrorizes people,” Gaetz told Newsmax.
