Republican House Judiciary Chair Jim Jordan will escalate his fight against Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s Trump indictment with a “field hearing” just blocks from the ‘corrupt DA’s office in New York City next week.
Last week, Bragg brought 34 felony charges against Donald Trump.
The charges stem from dubious allegations that Trump allegedly tried to conceal a “hush money” payment made by his former lawyer, Michael Cohen, to adult film star Stormy Daniel.
Ohio Republican Jim Jordan vowed to investigate Bragg’s Trump indictment, announcing the committee would hold a field hearing in Manhattan on April 17 at the Jacob Javits Federal Building, just blocks away from Bragg’s office, the New York Post reported.
The hearing will involve testimony “from victims of Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg’s radical policies.”
The committee said that the victims had been affected by Bragg’s alleged “failure to prosecute” more typical crimes, which Republicans have been accusing him of for years.
Last week, Hosue Speaker Kevin McCarthy also vowed to hold Bragg accountable.
“Alvin Bragg is attempting to interfere in our democratic process by invoking federal law to bring politicized charges against President Trump, admittedly using federal funds, while at the same time arguing that the peoples’ representatives in Congress lack jurisdiction to investigate this farce. Not so. Bragg’s weaponization of the federal justice process will be held accountable by Congress,” McCarthy tweeted.
Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene also warned Bragg he could be indicted for improperly pursuing an investigation against Trump.
“Now it’s time to arrest Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg for prosecutorial misconduct after hiding hundreds of pages of exculpatory evidence!” she wrote.
“Bragg is on the verge of indicting an innocent former President and top Presidential candidate against the opposing ruling party. Bragg is breaking the law and trying to incite civil unrest with his Soros-funded political war. Hold him accountable!” Greene added.
