Jordan, Comer, Steil Demand Communications, Documents, and Testimony from Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg
“...sent a letter to Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg demanding./..”
That’ll sure do it. Heh.
...sent a letter?
That is so much more forceful than smoke signals.
Which he will ignore of course.
not that i dont think bragg is a political hack but how is this in congress’s wheelhouse?
Will this yield anything more than most previous hearings?
Kim Jong Ill: "Or else...what?"
Blix: "Or else we will write you a strongly worded letter!"
- "Team America: World Police"
It’s a dog and pony show.
I guess it’s better than nothing, but not much.
Does the US House even have effective, enforceable, legal subpoena power?
All talk, no bite. I really doubt that congress can extract any non-public case information while the case is pending or being adjudicated.
Bragg is a public official. How about disclosing his home address, so American citizens can contact him personally about their concerns.
They did this to Musk. I want to see it done to Alvin Frag.
“not that i dont think bragg is a political hack but how is this in congress’s wheelhouse?”
Ah....I noticed something in the statement. Went something like “All communications between your office and those of Federal Government funded agencies, including SDNY, and potential Federal Funding and assistance you received....”
All of these Federal Agencies have failed, so they went around Federal norms and tried to resurrect the (zombie) case in Manhattan court, but Federally assisted. Congress has a right to intervene wherein Federal Money has been spent for things it should not have been spent for. Since the Manhattan DA accepted that assistance, probably improperly. That means he took Federal Assistance, potentially financially and manpower, which is probably inappropriate and potentially illegal in this setting, when it’s a political based attack.
They just put him on notice, not that he could be investigated, but that he has been ‘used’ inappropriately and may have violated his legal boundaries. The emails, if Federal money are involved, are certainly under the privy of Congress. I hope for the prosecutor and his office, they aren’t damaging..... but I think it will not be good.
Which he will ignore of course.
I've no doubt, he's a lawless corrupt DA. That's where the "go from there" part comes in.
This will be a great test to see how serious the (R)'s in congress are in starting the process to take our country back from the lawless hate America psycho's that seem to be everywhere now.
Gotta start somewhere.
The GOP needs a flamethrower
Well, as long as the tone of the letter was on the angry side
Because he is trying to influence an election that affects the executive branch of the federal government.
If they can investigate steroids in baseball, they can investigate a DA who is abusing his power by politically going after a former President and current front runner in the race for the next presidency.
No doubt about it.
