( – The Republican House chairmen are calling for Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg (D) to testify before them ahead of any potential prosecution brought forth against former President Trump over the hush money payment made prior to the 2016 presidential election.

The letter by the GOP lawmakers sent to Bragg comes after Trump claimed that he would be arrested in the coming week in connection to the case. In his message, Trump also called for his supporters to protest. Bragg has not yet made an official decision on whether or not Trump will be charged with a crime.

The call has also led to some Democrats claiming that the GOP was trying to interfere with the investigation.

The GOP lawmakers are also calling for Bragg to sit in for an interview “as soon as possible” as well as hand over a number of documents that relate to communications that had occurred as part of the probe.

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) wrote in the letter, which was also signed by Chairman James Comer (R-Ky.) and Bryan Steil (R-Wis.), who lead the Oversight and Administration committees, sent the letter on Monday, calling for him to testify before them regarding the case that they claim “plainly appears to be a politically motivated prosecutorial decision.”

Bragg’s office responded to the letter stating that they would not be “intimidated by attempts to undermine the justice process,” and that they would not be stopped from “fairly applying the law.”
