Manhattan Attorney General Alvin Bragg, who indicted Donald Trump on April 4, has sued a House Republican for thwarting his attempts to “interfere” in his case amid a barrage of attacks from conservatives.

In his complaint, which he filed Tuesday in New York before the federal judiciary, he accuses Attorney General Jim Jordan, chairman of the chamber’s Judiciary Committee, of directing an “unprecedented and unconstitutional attack” against his investigation.
It aims to prevent any attempt by the elected official and his colleagues to call the elected attorney general the Democratic Party label so that he can be heard before Congress.
Jim Jordan has officially called out Alvin Bragg’s resigned former assistant, Mark Pomerantz.
“Congress has no authority to supervise criminal prosecution of an American state,” the attorney general writes in his complaint, which accuses the elected official of a “transparent campaign to attack and intimidate him,” and also spoke of “obstruction.”
Alvin Bragg has been under a barrage of attacks from Republicans since Donald Trump was indicted on 34 counts of alleged tax and accounting fraud related to payments to cover up three embarrassing affairs before the 2016 presidential election, including a sexual relationship with X-movie actress Stormy Daniels, which he has always denied.
And the African-American Attorney General points out in his complaint that “Mr. Trump, in particular, threatened authority figures in New York with violent and racist rhetoric,” recalling that he described him as “an animal supported by (George) Soros,” the billionaire and philanthropist. The usual American target of anti-Semitic and conspiratorial attacks.
He also states that the indictment was made by a grand jury, a panel of citizens.
First of all, they are indicting a president who has committed no crime. Then they launch a measure to prevent congressional control when we ask questions about the federal funds they say they used to do that,” Chamber Representative Jim Jordan, an elected official from Ohio, responded on Twitter.
The House Judiciary Committee announced Monday that it will hold a “field hearing” in New York on April 17 on the “safeguards and policies of Attorney General Against Victims” Alvin Bragg.
“Don’t be fooled, the House GOP is coming to the safest major city in America for a political stunt,” Alvin Bragg wrote on Twitter.
