Alvin Bragg sues Jim Jordan, calls House subpoena attempt 'unconstitutional'

 April 12, 2023

It's clear that Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg's indictment of former President Donald Trump is falling apart at the seems, as he's now making desperate moves. 

According to Breitbart, Bragg is apparently so concerned about the integrity of his case that he filed a lawsuit against Ohio Republican Rep. Jim Jordan in an effort to block the congressman from digging into the case.

Bragg's lawsuit, Breitbart noted, is intended to block the House Judiciary Committee chairman from "following through on a subpoena he issued to Mark Pomerantz, a former special assistant in the Manhattan district attorney’s office who quit when Bragg took over."

It sounds to many like Bragg is quite worried as to what Jordan would find out if he's able to follow through on that subpoena.

What's happening?

While Jordan added that the investigation is meant to "put an end to this constitutionally destructive fishing expedition," Bragg believes he's on the right side of the law as far as the subpoena is concerned.

The George Soros-funded district attorney, according to his court filings, wants to prevent Jordan "from enforcing this unlawful and unconstitutional subpoena," adding that he also wants "to prohibit Mr. Pomerantz from complying with it."

"Their latest salvo—the subpoena to Mr. Pomerantz—is an abuse of congressional process and a brazen incursion into New York’s exercise of its sovereign prosecutorial powers," the court filing added.

Most predicted that Bragg's lawsuit was garbage. The news was widely discussed across social media this week.

Chairman Jordan tweeted, "First, they indict a president for no crime. Then, they sue to block congressional oversight when we ask questions about the federal funds they say they used to do it."

Bragg's big bust

In a late-breaking development, Breitbart noted in a separate report, a federal judge almost instantaneously shot down Bragg's lawsuit on Tuesday.

The rapid denial of the TRO further added to Bragg's growing list of embarrassments in his political pursuit of President Trump.

While the Manhattan Democrat has already dug himself a pretty deep hole of humiliation, he could maybe salvage a shred of his career if he dumped the case right now. But, he probably won't.
