Alvin Bragg agrees to testify before Congress

 June 10, 2024

Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg (D) has agreed to testify before the U.S. House of Representatives. 

The Associated Press reports that the George Soros-backed Bragg did so on Friday.

This follows a request for Bragg's testimony that was recently made by the House Judicial Committee.

Bragg, of course, is the prosecutor who brought the so-called hush-money case against former President Donald Trump, the same case in which a New York City jury recently found Trump guilty on all counts.

What's going on?

If you have been following the "hush-money" case, then you probably know that most legal experts - from both sides of the political spectrum - consider the whole case to be a sham, one orchestrated by the Democrats to get President Joe Biden's chief Republican rival.

The House Judiciary Committee wants to get to the bottom of this, which is why the committee's chairman, U.S. Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH), has asked Bragg to testify before Congress.

Jordan sent a letter to Bragg, requesting his testimony, soon after the guilty verdict in Trump's trial. In the letter, Jordan accused Bragg of having conducted "the unprecedented political prosecution of President Trump."

Jordan asked Bragg to appear before the Committee on June 13, presumably to testify about various aspects of the case.

Jordan also asked one of Bragg's top prosecutors - Michael Colangelo - to testify, but it remains unclear whether he will. Colangelo is the man who gave up the number three position in the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) for a significantly lower-ranking position in Bragg's office just before Bragg decided to prosecute Trump. Many believe that this is the missing link between the Biden White House and the prosecution of Trump.

Bragg responds

To the surprise of many, Bragg has agreed to testify before Congress.

"In a reply letter, the Manhattan district attorney’s general counsel, Leslie Dubeck, said the prosecutor’s office was 'committed to voluntary cooperation,'" the Associated Press reports.

It continues, "That cooperation, it added, including making Bragg, a Democrat, available to testify 'at an agreed-upon date.' But the letter said the date picked by Jordan presented 'presents various scheduling conflicts.'"

So, at the time of this writing, it remains unclear when exactly Bragg will testify.

Many, on the left, are urging him not to testify, claiming that the only reason he has been asked to testify is so Republicans can score on the situation politically. But, Bragg, at the moment, does not seem to be worried about that.
