Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg confirmed he used federal funds to investigate Donald Trump’s so-called ‘hush payment’ to porn star Stormy Daniels, ultimately leading to his indictment.
Last week, Committee Chairman Jim Jordan, House Administration Committee Chair Bryan Steil, and House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer accused Bragg of abusing his power and launched an investigation.
The House Republican lawmakers sent a letter to Bragg demanding testimony and documents relating to his investigation into Trump’s alleged ‘hush payment.’
However, Bragg fired back with a nasty letter, prompting House Republicans to hit back again in their quest to hold the Soros-funded DA accountable.
In a scathing letter on Friday, Bragg pushed back against House Republicans’ efforts to investigate his prosecution of Trump.
The ‘corrupt’ Manhattan DA accused House Republicans of attempting to “vilify” prosecutors and judges by collaborating with the former president.
Bragg then admitted his office used federal funds to investigate Trump.
“Our review of the Office’s records reflect that, of the federal forfeiture money that the Office helped collect, approximately $5,000 was spent on expenses incurred relating to the investigation of Donald J. Trump or the Trump Organization,” Bragg’s office wrote to GOP Reps. Jim Jordan, Steil, and Comer.
“These expenses were incurred between October 2019 and August 2021. Most of those costs are attributed to the Supreme Court case, Trump v. Vance—subpoena-related litigation in which the DA’s Office prevailed and which led to the indictment and conviction of Trump Organization CFO Allen Weisselberg and two Trump organizations,” it added.
“No expenses incurred relating to this matter have been paid from funds that the Office receives through federal grant programs.” Bragg’s office said.
As Breitbart noted:
“Examining the use of federal funds, which Dubeck confirmed Bragg’s office uses, is well within Congress’s jurisdiction and helps the Republicans’ contention that they are within their right to investigate the office. The chairmen have also argued that they require Bragg’s cooperation to inform future legislation, which Bragg disputes.”
“Federal funds = congressional oversight” House Judiciary member Rep. Russell Fry said on Friday evening.
