House Judiciary Releases Detailed Report on “How Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg and Judge Merchan Violated the Constitutional and Legal Rights of President Trump”

In a bombshell release, the House Judiciary Committee, led by Chairman Jim Jordan, has unveiled a comprehensive report titled “Lawfare: How the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office and a New York State Judge Violated the Constitutional and Legal Rights of President Donald J. Trump.”

This interim staff report, a result of extensive investigations by the Committee and the Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government, exposes the egregious violations of President Trump’s rights by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg and Judge Juan Merchan.

The report scrutinizes Bragg’s 34-count criminal indictment against Trump, which was announced on April 4, 2023.

The charges involved allegations of falsifying New York business records to conceal federal crimes related to payments made by former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen to former porn star Stephanie Clifford, also known as Stormy Daniels, in 2017. The Judiciary Committee’s investigation, initiated in March 2023, found the prosecution to be politically motivated and legally deficient.

According to the press release:

The report explains the several ways in which New York County District Attorney (DANY) Alvin Bragg’s prosecution of President Trump suffers from severe legal and procedural defects, including:

Bragg’s unconstitutional and unprecedented Russian-nesting-doll theory of criminal liability, in which the jury never had to reach unanimity as to each element of the criminal offenses; and

Bragg’s usurpation of the federal government’s exclusive authority to prosecute alleged violations of federal campaign finance laws and the Biden-Harris Administration’s refusal to intercede to protect federal interests.

The report also details Judge Merchan’s egregious legal rulings before and during the trial that all cut against President Trump’s rights, including:

Judge Merchan’s failure to recuse himself for manifest political bias against President Trump;

The unconstitutional gag order he imposed on President Trump during the trial;

Judge Merchan’s admission of plainly inadmissible, irrelevant, and unfairly prejudicial testimony against President Trump; and

Judge Merchan’s refusal to permit former Federal Election Commission Chairman Bradley Smith to testify as to the meaning and complexities of the Federal Election Campaign Act.

You seem to think these committees have “powers”. They don’t.

Don't worry, boys, Dementia Joe Biden will protect you!

Just talk, maybe, but necessary talk. This is the battle lines starting to form.

They can do more than talk! They have power of the purse, if nothing else. But all we see from Republicans is talk, talk, talk. When they get the chance to do something, they fold.

And compared to the Iran-Contra hearings, which I sat in on, as an example, they were more monumental than what useless bunch we have today. All we get are Hannity-like bombshells that are meaningless.

Did they go into the prosecution visits to the White House? Did they ask why a DOJ official became part of the prosecution team?

More talk, no action.

Please explain what "action" you think the House Judiciary could take. The most they can do is propose some legislation to address some of the issues they identified, assuming they are federal in nature. At least they are creating a public record, which Trump may be able to use in his appeals process.

Since this is a state case, the House has no "power of the purse" to use.
