    Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee spent Monday’s Manhattan field hearing blaming guns, not people, for crime. Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee spent Monday’s Manhattan field hearing blaming guns, not the criminals behind them, for the nation’s crime epidemic. The committee held a field hearing in Manhattan as New York City deteriorates from an American centerpiece of capital ingenuity into a treacherous urban jungle where far-left prosecutors allow criminals to control the streets. “Today’s hearing is about the administration of justice, and keeping communities safe, something that has always been a central focus of the House Judiciary Committee,” opened...

    Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg's request for a restraining order against Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) was declined by a judge on Tuesday. The judge ordered Bragg to send the material to Jordan by 9 p.m. Wednesday so the court could have a hearing on the situation on April 19. Bragg requested the order in an attempt to block Jordan from interfering in the Stormy Daniels hush money case that former President Donald Trump was charged in last week. Jordan has subpoenaed an investigator previously involved in the case. The lawsuit was filed with the U.S. District Court for the Southern...

    The taxpayer-funded leftists at National Public Radio flung proverbial sewage at critics who dared raise Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s financial ties to billionaire George Soros. NPR’s Apr. 6 edition of All Things Considered decried “conservative politicians” who made Soros a “bogeyman” in Bragg’s highly politicized prosecution of former President Donald Trump. The outlet railed at critics like Trump, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) and Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA). NPR Host Mary Louise Kelly brought on guest and liberal Soros biographer Emily Tamkin who downplayed the fact that Soros gave $1 million to the anti-police Color of Change PAC...

    If the other substantive weaknesses in the politically constructed Manhattan case against Donald Trump do not lead to a pre-trial dismissal, this one should collapse it.The Commissioner of the Federal Election Commission (FEC) explicitly states the payments by President Trump to Stormy Daniels are not an election campaign violation.WASHINGTON DC – A key member of the Federal Election Commission today rejected the Manhattan district attorney’s indictment of former President Donald Trump as a violation of federal election laws.“It’s not a campaign finance violation.

    The House Judiciary Committee on Thursday issued a subpoena demanding congressional testimony from Mark Pomerantz, a former prosecutor in Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg‘s office who worked on the hush money probe of former President Trump. It is the first subpoena the panel has issued related to its investigation of Mr. Trump‘s arrest on 34 felony charges of falsifying business records. Committee Chairman Jim Jordan, Ohio Republican, said earlier this week that a subpoena of Mr. Bragg is also on the table, but has not yet been issued. Mr. Jordan last month requested Mr. Pomerantz testify before the panel. Mr....

    George Washington law professor Jonathan Turley is bearish about the long-term prospect of Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s 34-count indictment against former President Donald Trump.During an appearance on Fox News on Tuesday, Turley predicted the case “could collapse” before it got to trial.“[T]here are substantial threshold legal questions here,” he said. “And this case could collapse before it gets to a trial. And this is not the only judge that will have to look at this. And I think that has to weigh heavily on him. Because there’s no there there.”Now, whether he can fill in those gaps, we’ll have...

    Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg charged former President Donald with a crime that “doesn’t exist,” an attorney for the former president told Tucker Carlson Tuesday. “Let’s talk about what we can see in the indictment, which is the year and date. I’m no crazy brilliant human being, but I’m sure I know how to read a calendar. We have dates, February 2017 for a few months. Where was President Trump in February 2017? In the Oval Office,” Alina Habba told Carlson, a co-founder of the Daily Caller News Foundation. “Okay. So what they’re saying there were checks written to his...

    Former President Trump’s legal team makes a significant announcement against Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg’s “politically motivated” indictment against him.On Sunday, Trump's attorney Joe Tacopina expects to make a motion to dismiss any charges against the former president. “We will take the indictment. We will dissect it. The team will look at every potential issue that we will be able to challenge and will challenge. And, of course, I very much anticipate a motion to dismiss coming because there's no law that fits this," Tacopina said during an interview on CNN.

    The legal team representing former President Donald Trump reportedly expects that the Manhattan judge will put a gag order on him as the case awaits trial. A source close to the legal team told the Daily Mail the judge will take an “unprecedented step” to silence the 2024 presidential candidate. The gag order could potentially undercut his ability to campaign on the issue of legal corruption during the primary. “The Trump legal team now thinks that the Manhattan judge will take the unprecedented step of silencing the presidential frontrunner with an unconstitutional gag order tomorrow,” the source said. “The Trump...

    A Manhattan parking garage attendant who was shot twice while confronting an alleged thief — then wrestled the gun away and opened fire on the suspect — has been charged with attempted murder, police and sources said. The overnight worker, identified by cops as Moussa Diarra, 57, was also hit with assault and criminal possession of a weapon charge in the Saturday incident, which unfolded around 5:30 a.m. as the attendant saw a man peering into cars on the second floor of the West 31st Street garage, the sources said. Believing the man was stealing, the attendant brought him outside...

    Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R) defended his 2016 rival, former President Donald J. Trump, on Saturday, calling Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s case against him “very political.” “Bragg’s predecessor didn’t take up the case. The Justice Department didn’t take up the case. Bragg first said he would not take up the case,” Bush tweeted. “This is very political, not a matter of justice. In this case, let the jury be the voters,” he added.

    (Mar. 31, 2023) — With the 100% politically-motivated “ham sandwich” and concocted indictment of President Trump announced yesterday, the District Attorney for the Borough of Manhattan – one Alvin (“No Neck”) Bragg, whose campaign for the office received a cool $1,000,000 from a PAC funded by radical leftist billionaire George Soros – can now “brag” that he has moved the borough one step closer to becoming the Banana Republic of Manhattan. Quite apart from the rancid ham sandwich Bragg has extracted from his grand jury, Manhattan’s crime rate now rivals even some of the more legitimately dangerous banana “republics” of...

    The Manhattan grand jury indictment Thursday night of former President Donald Trump is sparking new scrutiny of the George Soros-supported district attorney who led the investigation into Trump's alleged violations of state campaign finance laws. Fox News Digital previously reported that in May 2021, financier George Soros pushed $1 million to the Color of Change PAC, which turned around and spent big, backing Bragg's candidacy. Soros' son, Jonathan Soros, and Jonathan's wife, Jennifer Allan Soros, also donated directly to Bragg's campaign, according to New York campaign finance records reviewed by Fox News Digital.

    The weaponization of the legal system to advance a political agenda turns the rule of law on its head. It is un-American. The Soros-backed Manhattan District Attorney has consistently bent the law to downgrade felonies and to excuse criminal misconduct. Yet, now he is stretching the law to target a political opponent. Florida will not assist in an extradition request given the questionable circumstances at issue with this Soros-backed Manhattan prosecutor and his political agenda.

    Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg formally refused to cooperate with the House Republicans’ congressional investigation into “unprecedented abuse” of authority against former President Donald Trump upon the expectation the former president would be arrested this week in connection with Bragg’s investigation, Breitbart News learned Thursday. Bragg denied providing testimony and documenters to top House Republican leadership due to “an unprecedented inquiry into a pending local prosecution,” he replied to Republicans. On Monday, Judiciary Committee chairman Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH), Oversight Committee chairman Rep. James Comer (R-KY), and Administration Committee chairman Rep. Bryan Steil (R-WI) demanded Bragg comply with the committee’s...

    The media hacks at Politico changed an outrageous headline characterizing the George Soros-tied Manhattan District Attorney as an apolitical, “by-the-book” prosecutor. Politico conducted a March 20 public relations stunt on behalf of Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg, who’s reportedly set to indict former President Donald Trump based on a seven-year old case. The Politico headline read: “By-the-book DA confronts unpredictable opponent in Trump.” Politico reporter Erica Orden fawned in her anti-Trump agitprop that Bragg was a “low key, politics-averse prosecutor prepar[ing] to take on the brash, mudslinging former president.” Orden must have forgotten that Bragg made prosecuting Trump a centerpiece of...
