(FixThisNation.com) – House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) expanded the probe into Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s (D) investigation into the role of former President Trump in the hush money payment scheme.
As part of their probe, they have now called on two prosecutors who had resigned from the New York case because of a previous disagreement with Braggs. On Wednesday, Jordan sent letters to Mark Pomerantz, former New York County Special Assistant District Attorney, and Carey Dunne, former Manhattan Special Assistant District Attorney, both of whom had resigned from the probe after disagreeing with Bragg’s expressed reluctance in potentially indicting Trump in the case.
The Judiciary chair has requested that both former prosecutors come to testify during a transcribed interview “as soon as possible.” He has also called on them to turn in any documents and communications.
In the letter sent to Pomerantz, Jordan wrote that in his resignation letter which has since been leaked, he had shamed Bragg. He added that because of his unique relation to this case “we request your cooperation with our oversight of this politically motivated prosecutorial decision.”
In the letter sent to Dunne, Jordan also points out that Dunne had left his position because of “Bragg’s initial reluctance” to pursue charges in 2022.
Jordan, along with House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-Ky.) and House Administration Committee Chairman Bryan Steil (R-Wis.) is also looking to secure the testimony of Bragg. This request was made after Trump claimed that he was going to be arrested in connection to the case on Tuesday.
